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!

  • What's your favorite shirt for recognized shows when coats are waived?

    I'm currently shopping and would love some ideas!

  • #2
    I love the Romfh competitor shirts! They are moisture-wicking and have a cool magnetic collar that can be done up to look like a regular show shirt for when coats are not waived, and a cute collared shirt look when opened up for when they are Colors are available, but I have a white shirt with a very light grey collar (looks white when closed), that is long sleeve. I find that I stay cooler with the white long sleeves that have the mesh under arm panels than I am with s short-sleeved shirt.

      PERFECT timing for this question! I'd like to know the answer, too.

      I would really NOT like to wear all white and resemble the "Extra Fluffy Stay-Puff Marshmallow (wo)Man"...LOL.

      I have the Kerrits ventilator shirts...but know that you can't wear the pattern ones. Wondering if the other solid 'colors' are allowed like this one in "celery":

              I have the Kerrits in white. If it's hot enough I'm not wearing the jacket, I would prefer not wearing my polo shirts either!


              I am waiting for a couple of cooling vests to show up - I would look into their legality when jackets are waived to use them over plain, solid colored shirts for those 90+ rides.

                  They seem to for me. I'm a 34 shirt and take a small. I could do a medium, but the body is a bit big on me.

                    I too like the Kerrits ventilator shirts and show in the white one. I have a black cooling vest that I wear over it when Im not wearing my coat. The shirt is very cool. I am very heat intolerant and the shirt wicks away sweat.

                        Coats are rarely waived here but I love my Pikeur show shirt with crystal buttons. I have it in grey, it's subtle and pretty. They are spendy here - around $100 - but if you have some other things to order to make the shipping worth it they're a great deal on Calevo.

                          Oh, they are NOT cotton - I HATE cotton! Nice tech fabric, very wicking.

                            Well I tried the Goode Rider Ideal shirt and the hem is too short. I'm tall (5'11") and don't want to have to worry about keeping my shirt tucked in all the time. Any suggestions for a longer hemmed shirt?

                              I have a smartpak brand show shirt, and it is just fabulous. My favorite so far. It stays pretty clean, and is super super cool. Moisture-wicking without the thick fabric. And it's a good price. I love them!

                                Sort of off topic-
                                My barn doesn't allow no jacket- regardless of show ruling. Stating- if your to hot to wear coat for 6 minutes, maybe it's unfair to ask horse to perform, your choice.
                                Do most of you ride under a trainer ?

                                  I do ride with a trainer, in Texas, and I would not be going for that policy at all. Horses shed their winter coats and can be body-clipped, hosed off, etc. Why can't we shed our coats when it's 90+ degrees? And what about riders who have multiple horses to ride or don't have a ground person to hold their coats during warm-up? That would be a lot more than 6 minutes of baking in a coat. No thanks! My trainer is just as happy as we are when coats are waived.

                                    When I showed H/J my trainer had the same policy for the hunters. I don't think it really matters one way or the other. My trainer always thought you made a much better impression and looked much nicer if you wore your jacket, which is true, I guess. But, if the judge waives jackets, then they shouldn't judge those wearing jackets any different than those not wearing jackets.

                                      You beat me to it - I have two of those (pale blue and pale lavender.) They are very comfortable and I think they are flattering. I found mine on Ebay for around $50 each, NWT.

                                        Wearing a coat when coats have been waived because your trainer made you is STUPID. I would tell my trainer that they could either coach me without my coat or I could coach myself and find another trainer! If you want to make that decision on your own go ahead.

                                        Horses have summer and winter coats and we wouldn't expect our horses to perform well in 90 degree weather in their winter coats.

                                        You can also try asking the judges who would much rather see you without your coat than with.
