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!

  • Favorite gloves?

    Do you have any favorite riding gloves?
    Ideally I'm looking for something with a bit of a grip...
    In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.

    Roeckls!!! Seriously the best gloves. Perfect amount of grip, feel amazing, and you can toss them into the washing machine. They are a tiny bit spendy but totally worth it. Mine have lasted at least twice as long as the cheaper SSG's I used to buy and they've still got some time left on them.

      Neumans Tackified. They are real leather. Wash with your breeches or any other way. Very durable. There is an insulated pair too.

      When it gets really, really cold though, I go to SSG winter training.
      Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

      Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

          I have the roeckls now, and while they are lasting longer, i don't find that they have any grip...

            I have been riding around in the 10 degree gloves by SSG and I love them. I actually like that they are a bit thick and "dampen" the feel, mainly because it encourages me to ride with my back and elbows holistically instead of fiddling about with the fingers and wrists.

            Also, not being completely frozen doesn't hurt.

              Roekl because they have winter and summer ones, and a variety of colors. I have long nails, they allow for them too!! The SSG work, but imho do not offer as much feel, but good for eventing. Neumanns have always worn out too fast for me.

              In winter, get the gloves with little finger/thumb each in their own casing, and the other three together. They come from different makers, have extra no slip between pinkie and the 'threesome'.

                      I discovered the SSG Digitals this past year and I am in love. I have for a long time not liked most gloves, because they are usually too bulky for my taste and not grippy enough. I used cotton string gloves forever. But I found these and I absolutely adore them. They have a great feel (I HATE bulky gloves), and are grippy even when my sweating machine horse has the reins completely slicked.

                        Current faves are the SSG All Weather for most of the year and the SSG Winter All Weather and SSG Riding Mittens (Leather), which are awesome, for really cold weather. I will have to try the Digitals. The SSGs last forever for me and are a great price.

                        I had Roeckls as my show gloves but, when they wore out, decided to go back to the SSG All Weathers, which I find more comfortable.

                        I've also gotten into the wildly coloured SSGs as my everyday gloves. Love the horseshoe pattern and this year I bought the zebra and the hot pink. That way, my gloves will never end up in anyone else's tack box.

                          I have several I like depending what I'm doing that day.

                          I foxhunt or trail ride in the SSG 10 Belows in the winter. I don't like them for arena work because they are too thick and deaden feel too much. If I'm doing arena work I like the Heritage Extreme Winter gloves. They look similar to the SSG 10 Belows, but they aren't as thick or as warm.

                          I have Roekel gloves I like quite a bit for basically anything above 45F. I generally use them for hunting or shows. My hunt bridle has braided reins and these are plenty tacky to grip the braided reins. At home I ride in plain, flat reins on both my biothane bridle and my leather schooling bridle.

                          I also have several pairs of the SSGs that come in a bunch of colors. Those tend to be my every day or trail riding gloves. They're probably my favorite ones.

                              Yes, love 'em. I have a black pair for every day and a white park for shows.

                                SSG Digital gloves last me a year-14months
                                I ride about 15 hours a week, and scrub my gloves every Friday. They hold up, they're super grippy, and ultra thin.

                                  I used to use SSGs exclusively, but have since bit the bullet and bought a more expensive pair. These are Ariats, and I have to say, I LOVE them! I want to say they are the Tek Grip style, but not positive.

                                    My all time favorite gloves used to be the Ovation mesh-back gloves. they had thin, thin leather on the palm side (I like good feel) and a light nylon mesh on the back. Unfortunately, they don't make them anymore. I've only got one pair left, so I'm enjoying this thread.

                                      I tried them on today and really liked the grip, so I bought them. Apparently they only had men's pairs though so I had to get a XS size... Do they do women's gloves too?
                                      In my opinion, a horse is the animal to have. 1300 pounds of raw muscle, power, grace, and sweat between your legs - it's something you just can't get from a pet hamster.
