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!

    How is it working with your Renegade boots? I am looking for a set of four hoof boots and Renegades were recommended. The only problem is I can't find out where to buy them!

    How much did they cost? Are you pleased with them? Have you tried other kinds of boots like Easyboot Epics?

        i didn't get mine yet.

        lauren! got a pair but they were too small for her horse. not sure if she exchanged them.
        she said they looked good.
        you have to buy them through a hoof care practitioner and they're scarce. my trimmer put the order in back in mid summer and she still doesn't have them.
        pricey too. i think lauren! paid like $180!

            Mine are still working great for me. Fortunately the guy who makes them lives in the same state I do, so I have an "in"! I even met him at my last ride and have his phone number now I really, really like them. I did a 25 with my mare and have also been using them with my gelding. No rubs, super easy to put on, and have not fallen off, ever. I have to say they are much easier and nicer than easy boots. I have not been able to make it to many endurance rides this fall but hope to do a lot over the winter and spring and really put them to the test. Then I will see how they hold up over time. Thats the only question right now. The guy who makes them seems really nice, always making improvements to the boots, and hopes to get up and running in a new building and be able to produce a lot more soon.

              that sounds very encouraging.

              are they heavier or lighter than epics or bares?

              lately my focus switched to glueing boots on but it'd be nice to have a pair of boots that are easy to put on and stay on and don't slip and slide

                they are lighter than Epics and so much more flexible.

                  Renegades look very interesting!

                  When will they be available to the general public?

                  In looking at the web site, you can even jump in them!

                  And such an array of colors.. They look much easier to put on.

                    I really cant say enough good things about the Renegades. I dont know when they will be available to the public though.
                    Easy Care is supposed to be coming out with a new design very soon, not sure if it is the just the gaiter or the whole boot. I hope it is much better than what they have now.

                      I found the website on these boots but there is no information on ordering. How does one go about getting a pair of these?

                        Daydream Believer, you probably wont be able to buy any because right now they are only sold thru trimmers and I think just trimmers that the manufacturer knows. I am lucky that I live in the same state and was able to find a trimmer that carries them.

                          Ah, thanks. I am a trimmer but obviously not "in the know!" They do look very nice. I'd love to try a pair!

                            Yes, they are the best. I did look at Easy Care's website and pics of their new "Edge" boot is up. I think they will be available sometime in '08. They do not show what type of "gaiter" the boot will have but the basic design looks quite similar to the Renegade.

                                Where'd you find the pics? I can only find this page:
                                http://www.easycareinc.com/Cool_Stuf...2_results.aspx and
                                http://www.easycareinc.com/NewsRoom/Current.aspx

                                It looks like Pete Ramey submitted the winning name "Easyboot Edge."

                                  I think it was one of the blogs. It was just a few pics that showed the "body" of the boot but not how it would attach. Did remind me of the Renegade though.

                                    Judging by the shell pictures of the new Easyboot Edge available so far and the blog posts it sounds like it's going to be a lot like the Renegades. There are supposed to be another version of improved gaiters by the end of the year too. Between that and the people who are experimenting gluing boots on without gaiters I'm hopefully that there will be some good new options for booting by next summer

                                    I have not tried the Renegades yet, but I did get to handle a pair and they looked promising IMO. For now I'm using Bares with tapers and regular gaiters, but I'm considering switching the bungee to an UpBuckle, at least for everyday use and trail riding (I still think the bungee is better for jumping and competition... lower profile). I like the bungee, but they're very hard to use... my gaiters keep getting stuck inside the boot, no matter how hard I try to keep them folded back.

                                      Darnit, the blogs are blocked out for me here at work!

                                      Lauren - One thing I've figured out that works really well for putting the boots on (with gaiters)...Put the toe in the boot, then grasp the gaiter in both hands by the ends. Let the horse put their foot down, while you pull up on the gaiter. The boots just snap right on this way without the gaiters getting down inside the back of the boot.

                                        Thanks! I'll try that, but I'm not sure how it will work... maybe if I pound the boots on half way with a mallet first. The boots are a really snug fit... if you didn't know better you'd think there would be no way they'd go on It was also suggested that I try Gold Bond powder... that's next on my list!
