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!

  • Laser Amulet

    I just bought one 2 weeks ago and absolutely love it. It is so easy and quick to change the gullet size. It takes 3 minutes compared to the Bates and wintec system wich takes me atleast 20 minutes and is a real pain to change. It also is incredibly comfertable and def makes a difference in the way my horses move. Anyone else has one?.

      I saw the Laser saddles at Devon and they do look really nice. The one I sat in even had some sort of orthopedic gel in the seat and panels. Overall a very nice looking and feeling saddle on the saddle buck. I looked around and don't see these saddles very often. Are they newer and just haven't caught on yet, or just hype so the people who "know" stay away from them?

        I am wondering about the Laser saddle as well. I know that they were teaming with Thinline technology for a saddle as well. My horse suffered severe barns over her back in a barn fire, and I am wondering if when we are ready to see if she will be rideable (due to scarring) if this may be an option for us. I sat in one at Devon this year and thought it seemed pretty comfy. Would love to hear what people have to say about the saddles!

          The Amulet is the one with ThinLine in the seat, panels, and knee rolls.

            They have been around a pretty long time and I think are great saddles, but they aren't mass produced and aren't really marketed beyond word of mouth. I've ridden in one since 2003 and really like it. Website here: www.laserequestrian.com
            OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

              My Mom and I both ride with Jeremy Beale, who is the man that designs the Laser saddles. We both currently ride in the Laser Rendevous and absolutely love it!! The adjustable tree is such a fantastic feature seeing as how my 6 yr old has been changing shape for the past two years and will probably continue to change for awhile. The saddles are really comfy and put the rider in such a good position. Previously I had a Bates Isabell saddle that was really hard to ride in. The balance of the saddle was way off and I was constantly having to fight to keep myself in the correct position. The Laser has made a huge difference in a very short amount of time. Scubed is right by saying that they're not mass produced. They are also VERY hard to find used. I hope you enjoy yours!!

                  I rode my horse in a Wintec Isabel Worth and it has made a huge difference. Today he really started to bounce in the trot it was great to feel. I am really pleased.

                  Another horse I ride would constantly try to pull the reins out of your hands. The three times I rode him with the Amulet he hasn't tried to do it. I am not easilly convinced by word of mouth but this saddle def. makes a difference

                    I figured it was either the name of a dressage horse, or some kind of majickal gadget to hang on your horse's browband to keep him safe... sigh.

                          I just saw an advertisement for the Laser Amulet in the USDF Connection. I was very intrigued. I had planned to post and ask about it today. It looks super nice. Good to know that someone likes it!

                            Am I the only one who thinks this product was named after something dropped from a bad Italian ripoff of Star Wars?

                              I have the Laser Trident, which has the same Varilock gullet adjusting system as the Amulet has as well as the swallow tail tree points.
                              I like the saddle and very happy with it.
                              Their customer service wasn't the greatest however. While I'd not hesitate buying another Laser saddle, I'd think twice about going through Laser themselves, the experience was not so great at all.

                                Would like to know if anyone has tried both the Trident and the Amulet. I tried the Trident but could not get it to lock in the medium position. It would lock in the medium/narrow but kept spreading out in the medium position when I sat down on it. Also had a hard time mentally with the velcro knee rolls. Velcro on a high end leather saddle just doesn't compute with my thinking. I must be a leather snob!

                                Also understand the blog regarding a not good experience with Laser Equestrian's main store. I too looked at them at Devon and when I asked about the velcro issue, Major Jeremy Beal (spelling) was actually rude about my concerns. Won't stop me from buying the saddle, but I will get it from one of their distributer stores.....or better yet, used.

                                I ride in an Albion SLK and love it but hate the cost of adjusting it to my rising 6 year old Thoroughbred. I'm riding Training Level again this year and hope to move up to First Level next year.
