Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

    PaintPony, you have a PM!

    eventer@heart, that was so thoughtful of you, I cant wait to show her!

    Seriously, a big THANK YOU to everyone who has contributed in every way to our friend. She will be absolutely FLOORED! Anything and everything she receives will be loved and put into use. Not having to purchase her own riding essentials will allow her to continue saving for her own car.

    THANK YOU!

          and come to think of it, i have two daughters in early 20's who regularly do wardrobe purges, and i have an overabundance of jackets that i use as knockabouts....most were second-hand to begin with , but too nice to pass by...........so, what sizes of other stuff would she wear/use....?
          this is a great thread

            ParadoxFarm - WONDERFUL! She will LOVE that, PM coming your way!

            tallyho -PM coming your way, but posting on here to give additional info to others We do have a TSC close to home, its actually walking distance to her house! A fellow COTHer has been so kind to order a pair of paddock boots for her and they are on there way. However, something that she CAN use are rubber boots or work boots from TSC. She works at another barn in the mornings and helps us in the evenings so she is on her feet a great deal. She wears a size 8 1/2- 9 and has wide feet. As far as tall boots, she actually had a little fun at the local tack shop last weekend and got fitted for tall boots( just for the fun of it). She said her calf is 16-16 1/2. I am not sure of the height, but she isnt very tall.... maybe 5'4 or 5'5. Im thinking that she will have to find some used semi customs one day. For this same reason, half chaps are hard to find for her. Her current ones are too tall and go above the knee so we cut them behind to relieve the pinching. She is due for those also but they will be a tricky purchase bc of her leg measurements.

            As far as other clothing she is a size large in shirts and jackets. For pants she ranges from size 16-18. She will use and wear everything and is definitely not the picky type.

              Just wanted to say THANK YOU for helping this girl! Not a lot of people would these days.

              What size saddle do you think she would need? I have a 17.5 older style (plain flap) Jimmy's 20th Century saddle that I would be happy to send to her (shipping on me). Saddle is in good condition, think 1 of the leather stirrup keepers is ripped but billets and tree are good. I am sure I can also find some saddle pads, girths and whatever else she still needs. Let me know what I can do.

                  I don't think I have any riding clothes for her right now, but how about some bits or saddle pads? Anything else she could use for the horses? Like most Cothers, I have a bunch of excess "stuff" that I could certainly pass on to someone that could use it.

                    Does she need a helmet? I'd be willing to PayPal some funds towards one.
                    It's 2017. Do you know where your old horse is?

                      Would a pair of size 9 ariats work? They are field boots, in great condition, and the old ones that were made in Italy. I tried sending them to consignment, but they are missing a few stitches on the toecap. I just don't need them and am trying to pare down.

                      As I type I don't remember what her discipline is, if she is riding dressage, I would be happy to send along one of my stock ties. If H/J maybe a custom baby pad and matching belt?

                      If you are interested, please send me a pm.

                              not sure if that link will work, it should take you directly to the photo.

                              Hope she likes them!

                                        OH MY GOODNESS! bartender...you package sounds like Christmas morning!

                                        We have received so many packages for her in the last few days, a million thank you's go out to everyone that thought of our dear friend. I can't wait to post pictures. She showed for the first time yesterday sporting many of the items she has received from our COTH family. I have had to clean out my inbox several times just to recieve new messages from everyone so I apologize if you have not been able to reach me! I have also been a little slow responding with our show going on. Hope I havent forgotten anyone. Thanks again to everyone so much. Its hard to hold back tears every time she opens up a box, she is overwhelmed and these have been the best few weeks of her life. Looking forward to the next few packages to come this week
