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!

  • Need help with White Trash Dressage Class

    We are putting on our 3 rd Dressage and Jumping Schooling Show in Aug and I want to add a White Trash Dressage class. this is just a flat class that will be W/T/C. But I need some info on what to put in the prize list as what is required as white trash. I know duct tape is one thing that they must have.

    Horse poor any and all help would be great. As I have never shown in a WTD class and have only put on one show(it was last weekend and went great). So I do want to make sure that the right info is in the prize list.

    Thanks so much for the help.

    I would assume that the tack MUST be made of baling twine and duct tape. In addition a burlap sack saddle pad would be required. maybe one of those rusty old mule bits??

      Tell everyone just to go through their tack rooms and pull out all the stuff they don't know why they bought or haven't used in years because it's held together with duct tape and baling twine. Slobber stains and mismatched colors encouraged.

        AH HA!

        I've been wondering what WTD means

        I think sunglasses for the rider are absolutely required as well as sequins and glitter on every possible surface, including hooves and boots, but I'm a WTD novice.

          Now will this be a WTD equitation WTC class or just WTC on the rail, reverse, WTC?

          Need to make sure that Formal attire is not warn-the pants your horse dumped the hoof polish on should work fine. There should me a minimum amount of duct tape/baling twine required to enter the ring. There should be a gate steward of sorts to do the DT check. Excess lenght of whip due to baling twine wrist strap should NOT be penalized.

            This is a just a WTC on rail. How can you judge the worst WTD horse and rider if you can't line them up and compare who has the most duct tape.

              Lovely, Eleanor, just lovely. Hopefully many will follow suit and there will finally be a class Rothina and I can excel in.

              This a wonderful opportunity for people to use those animal print saddle pads and wraps they have been hiding in their closet. Also, those mismatched wraps they have been hanging on to but not sure why.

              The "come as you are" attitude is what it is all about. No matching gloves, half chaps, etc. Stains on shirts and breeches.

              There is a chapter in the book about putting on a WTD show but it is quite in depth. It speaks of using objects instead of letters (BBQ for B, manure pile for M, etc.) There is judging of the most creative use of an object as a mounting block, the best garanimal spotting, etc. For WTD freestyle and for those who do not know quite how to control their animal, bicyle hors are afixed to the crown of bridles to warn those around you that you are approaching. The same said horn is used to create freestyle music.

              And of course, use of duct tape and baling twine.

              And of course the class winner should win a WTD shirt/hat/mug. It is only fitting and right. And ribbons need to be made out of duct tape.

                  Hmmm, if i were riding in it, would it be acceptable to be dressed in a mesh T-shirt over a bra? Can't decide between sweat pants or cut-offs, guess I would have to let the weather decide.

                    Babs-you could do either or. However, it must be said that safety is still a concern even in WTD. Ya just don't have to look good being safe.

                          I went as White Trash to a Halloween party once. I stapled pieces of plastic trash bags to my bra and cut fringe out of it for the bottom of the bra. Then I made a two tone mini skirt out of white and black trash bags. My stomach was exposed but I had like a little belt thing made out of soda can tabs and string around my waste. I made high heel shoes out of duct tape and tuna cans. I won $75 bucks for the best costume. Don't know if our how you can use any of this on a horse but it was both trashy and white trashy.

                          Have fun.

                            OMG, KKJ, I might actually pay 75 bucks to see a picture of you in that costume.

                            I think there should be "Minimal" attire rules for WTD as in, well, MINIMAL. Tube tops should get extra points, especially if the wearer has big boobs AND tattoos.

                            There might also be points awarded for being able to complete an auxiliary activity while doing your test...such as consuming an entire Bud Light, painting all 10 nails, or doing your makeup.

                            Can people of color compete in WTD? Can there be a division called Trailer Trash Dressage?
                            I ride a mule. I paint dogs.

                              The mental image is priceless, although I bet we could get enough people on this thread to ante up another $75 to see photos of this costume.

                                I'm from Tennessee, so I may have an unfair advantage in this class.
                                My attire would include flip flops and I would have my dressage whip stuck in my back pocket. It makes such a cute statement standing up over you head like that...................

                                    Could you get extra points for sprinkling sparkle glitter on the horses? You know, the trend in barrel horses for a while in the late 90's ( at least in West TN) was to stencil patterns with glitter on the rumps of horses that way the light would catch it at night....

                                        Of course, they can!!! WTD has nothing to do with color, its all about the attitude (and the duct tape of course.)
