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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums' policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

    Hufglocken 25% off

    Right now with the code SAVE25

    Ugh. I am NOT a matchy matchy person. Quite the opposite. Nothing ever matches, because most of my stuff is used from the consignment section at the local tack shop. So I have NO IDEA what possessed me. I have been eyeballing a nice contoured dressage pad with the sheepskin on the underside. And I didn’t even get one with colors I could show in. And then, I got matching boots!! I have no idea what overcame me. 😳

    I am waiting impatiently for my Euro pad order to show up. With the 25% off, the non-sheepskin custom options are cheaper that off the rack LeMieux, Woof, etc. I bought conservative colors this time (navy, gray and white). I almost pulled the trigger on another order with more fun colors but couldn't decide what to get!

      I'm in the same boat outerbanks77 but I went with fun colours - one is blush pink with ocean trim and the other kelly green with forest green trim. Maybe I should have gotten conservative ones too...

        Excellent prices if you’re not in a hurry. Still waiting on my order from July 20, this seems pretty common.

          Yeah, the Christmas cutoff is sept 30, so I didn’t figure I would be getting them in a hurry.

            Yep, assume 3 months to the US. The orders are custom-made in Poland, and then get shipped in a batch to Australia. Hufglocken has to inspect everything, then re-pack and ship. I ordered in June and it appears that my stuff is just arriving in the US.

              Saw this and ordered a champagne saddle pad that I think will look awesome under my brown dressage saddle. May order one for a friend, if I can decide what she would like.... now to wait.

                Out of curiosity, how pricey is their shipping to the U.S.? I couldn't locate it on their website. Even though I get a discount on LeMieux through my job, I've been thinking about getting one of these pads for a while. I know the quality of Mattes is great and I'm willing to pay a little more to have fun options like contrasting binding and piping.

                  Free shipping I think?

                  Mine is almost done and ready to ship from the Factory back to Hufglocken. I ordered this one about a month ago! My custom dressge pad took about 4 months though.

                    Put something in the cart and find out the shipping. It's no longer free.

                      Thank you! Free shipping is amazing...and so completely worth it! Four months is tolerable and understandable considering everything that's happening in the world right now. I figure it can't be nearly so bad as the 3 months I waited for my new saddle to arrive.

                          Thank you! That's also super helpful. I just pulled the plug and ordered a pad. It came to $10+change for regular ground shipping. I think it was $18 or so for express shipping.

                              ARGH! I just ordered a contoured pad in orange with dark brown shearling. (I had to because the 25% discount is only valid until tomorrow.)

                                  Impossible. What's that saying? "One can never be rich enough, or thin enough"… or own too many saddle pads.

                                    Indeed! Can anyone help enable me? I've very recently (per another thread) starting using the all-in-one pads so the sheepskin can touch the horse directly.

                                    So, I'm looking at a dark colored pad with dark colored sheepskin: navy, graphite, blackberry, black. Horse is solid bay.

                                    Anyone have a preference for cotton or sheen? Is one more durable?

                                    Thanks all

                                      Ooo I hadn’t realized it was ending. I ordered three pads last month to replace some worn out ones, but now I have another horse coming in training and actually need more saddle pads.

                                        The sheen pads are a little thicker. The cotton pads seem like they'll be very durable, but they're pretty thin. I've only been using one of my sheen pads for a few months, so not sure on the durability.

                                        My order came a few days ago - graphite, navy and white. Very tempting to put in another order before the 25% off ends!
