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!

  • Anky Clothing Horse & Rider

    I was just checking out Anky's site and her online store. I like the styling of the clothes especially the turnout blanket. However they are expensive to say the least.
    So I would like to hear the opinions of anyone who owns any of her stuff. Is it well made, comfortable what are the blankets like?
    I really like the blanket and just about to buy one so I want to make sure it is worth it.

    I am not wanting to hear bad things about Anky herself I would like to know if her line of clothing is good or not


    Thanks !

      Maybe I didn't say it right
      I meant I just want to know about what her clothing line is like not about her riding techniques

          Someone I rode with worked for Anky for a wee while. She came back with a several pairs of Anky breeches, all which looked gorgeous on her and were incredibly flattering, made her look like she had legs for Africa and her waist very slim (b*tch!).

          She also came back with a couple of saddle blankets which were fab. Despite riding in the heat of the Australian summer (43oC Centigrade), they wicked the sweat away from the horse to the outside of the blanket where it dried really quickly. All it took was a quick hose and half an hour in the sun and they were sparkling clean again. They were also non-slip.

          I'm personally lacking the finances at the moment, but at some stage am planning on buying a couple of pairs of those divine breeches my acquaintance had!

              I just went looking on the Anky website to see if I could find the breeches my acquaintance had. Unfortunately I couldn't see them, but that's not to say they aren't there... I am blonde!

              They were full seat breeches, lovely seat on them, and didn't have the slanted pockets, just 1 straight zip at the front.

              Good luck, and let us know how you get on with them.

              BTW - She also had the Anky socks (as well as the Anky Petrie boots too - more money than she knew how to spend!) and swore by them...

                  Are you paying in euros? That's why everything is expensive. I used to shop the german websites, but not anymore. Mentally I can't pay $150 for something that was priced $100 a year ago.

                    If you like the Anky clothing line then you will LOVE this store. I do not know if they will ship to USA (I assume they will) but what a great concept these guys have.

                    And the prices are absolutely unbelievable! Finest quality, purchased and imported directly from Europe. All the best brands available.

                    Great concept which is enjoying huge popularity here in Ontario.

                    Enjoy!

                      Her saddle pads come in a zillion colors and they are super-fantastic. They are sueded on the top, and have cool max against the horse. I bought them at the World Cup and wish I had bought ten to sell to my friends. Kinda expensive with the Euro, but they are wonderful. My 2 cents.

                          Tried on some of her breeches and LOVED them. I also bought a pair of her winter riding gloves. Originally $80, marked way way way way down. Quite possibly worth the $80....which I'll never spend on gloves. But these were great!

                            I don't have any of the breeches, but I have several vests and jackets from Anky's line. They are beautifully made, well cut and come in cool colors. They are very pricey, so I wait until they go on sale for 50% off at my local tack shop and pick up a bunch. (luckily I'm not a very popular size). My friend had one of the winter blankets but didn't like it very much. The cut was very strange. Very short from wither to bottom of the belly, so it didn't really cover the horse entirely.

                              I have a shirt. Yes it was expensive, but I was in a DQ moment.

                              It has a nice design -- collared with a contrast piping and a cross over cut. It is made out of some space age fabric that wicks off the sweat, built-in sunscreen and ventilates. Everything but washes itself. It looks fashionable off and on the horse. What more could you ask for in an athletic shirt?
