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!

  • Gloves

    I'm looking for glove suggestions! My Roeckl gloves are not holding up as well as I'd like them too. I have a preference for leather gloves and I like buttery soft leather, my deerskins gloves have been the favorite so far. The bionic leather gloves I tried are not soft enough.

    Any suggestions for me? And what are your favorite gloves?

    for everyday riding I used tackified batters gloves ( baseball gloves) They are made by the same people who make tackified riding gloves but are way less expensive and more durable. I believe they are goatskin. I saved the roeckls for show

        I don't know if they are in the US yet, but Uvex has brought out some new gloves - Performance 2's. They are like knock-off Roeckls and are really very nice. The woman at the shop advised me to buy a half size smaller than my normal as they run large, but my normal 8 fit me perfectly,

        I have a navy pair, and trust me when I say the pictures do not do them justice. They are soft and very comfortable, no ridges or parts that dig into your hand. So far I have heard they hold up very well, and they are cheaper than Roeckls.

          This is really awesome - thank you for sharing this! I absolutely LOVE the colors and the design of my Roeckls, but it infuriates me how quickly the "coating" on the fingers wears off. For some reason, though, my grey pair has held up better than all my other pairs (navy, orange, brown, and red). Those Uvex gloves are really nice looking. I'm definitely going to check them out the next time I buy a new pair of gloves.

            I've always liked the Neuman tackified white gloves-they are available at Amazon.
            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.

              Neuman makes the batters gloves and they come is all sorts of colors, of course. The football gloves will also do. Great if you have larger hands, I always had to buy mens gloves as the fingers on womens gloves are never long enough

                Those Uvex gloves are not leather, and they will not be making leather in the future. Which is sad, as I absolutely loved the leather Uvex gloves at the World Cup, but they didn't have any more in my size. Uvex is first and foremost a safety company, and is discontinuing leather gloves as they believe the materials used for tanning aren't safe to have on your hands.

                      I've tried lots of gloves, also generally love leather, but my favorite gloves for show are the SSG Hybrid- soft leather on top and their grippy fabric on the bottom- doesn't wear out like Roeckls because it's not a coating, it's apparently a type of material that was originally developed for motocross gloves!

                          I know they're a bit expensive, but I LOVE my Samshields. I rode in Roeckl forever and when I need a new pair, tried the Samshield grey and I'm pretty obsessed. They were a bit stiff when I first put them on but they break in really quickly, like 5 minutes. I have a nerve problem in my left hand and they definitely help my grip as well. Love love love

                            I really like the SSG deerskin gloves. I find that even when my horse sweats or the reins get wet I still have pretty good grip. These are the ones I have:

                            http://www.doversaddlery.com/ssg%C2%...2/#ProductTabs

                            They look bulky in the picture but really they're not (I can't ride with bulky gloves). SSG also has a deerskin show glove that comes in black.

                              These are my favourites; https://www.samsclub.com/sams/plains...p:product:1:28

                              They are cabretta leather and good for everything except showing. The price doesn't hurt either.

                                Thanks everyone! I might have to look at some batter's gloves. I found some leather gardening gloves I really liked but couldn't find my size I currently use the SSG deerskin gloves and I love them but I was hoping to find something thinner for the summer. The Roeckl leather gloves might be something to look for as well

                                    No I was forever busting thru the end of conventional riding gloves and had a lot of mismates. Sky I think you will like the batters gloves for everyday use, they wear like iron

                                      I rarely wear gloves because my hands don't fit standard sizes, but the times I do I usually just wear work gloves that you can get at the hardware store. You don't sacrifice much feel, and they last forever.

                                        I had these and loved them at first too, but they are not what I would call durable. First the leather completely tore under the velcro patch (the part on the back of your hand) so that the flap was disconnected from the glove. This was within a few months - happened first on one hand, then the other went in the same spot. Granted I did keep wearing them for schooling and the rest of the glove held up pretty well, but when I needed new gloves I couldn't justify spending that money on them again. I've got SSG and Heritage now and both are much more durable and long-lasting.
                                        I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
