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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Brush for xc jump- where to buy

    So I am going to make a jump that has brush on it. Where would I find a good source for the brush that won't break the bank?

    Think brush like this. (of course it is out of stock)

    Or the front part of this jump-it can be shorter brush

    The only place I've seen the boxwoods (top pic) is Christmas Tree Shops and they were about $5 per bush. Not cheap.

      Better than I was finding. It was going to be about $100+ for a training level sized arrowhead.

      I am thinking of using a few push broom heads. I think I can go that for about $40 or $50

        I know some people who get brush for their brush fences from the people who supply fake brush to the steeplechase tracks. I don't know the name of the suppliers, or the prices.

          I ordered from Ali Express and it was pretty close to the first link you showed. Bought 15 packs, which did a training level wedge (just front and back - not middle row) as well as a small skinny roll-top. Still have half left.

          With shipping it came to about $65 US and arrived (from China) in 2 packages within about 2 weeks.

            Hobby Lobby and Michaels both have artificial foliage. Couldn't say specifically if they have boxwood or not at your local stores (ours do). But if you have one locally, it wouldn't hurt to go look. They frequently have sales and closeouts and you never know what you might find.

              I will check out Michaels. We have a newer Hobby Lobby nearby but I won't support them for political reasons.

                So I went to the link and it asked me what I was searching for. I started with artificial and one of the choices was artificial breast and another was artificial vagina....hmmmmm.... nope. I did not click on those. But it does make one think why.

                  Check out Craigslist or Freecycle to see if someone is ditching an artificial Christmas tree. That should give you a fair amount of brush!

                    I have not been able to find those suppliers on the web. I am hoping somebody knows who supplies them.

                        I got a whole bunch of table top artificial Christmas trees and garland on close out at JoAnn Fabric right after the holidays. I know, not the right time of year now, but if you can wait they were great deals. Try other craft/Michaels and big box stores too.

                          Be careful with the artificial christmas trees - most have a wire as their core.

                            In case this thread comes up in a search for somebody. I found a place that sells the brush for steeplechase.- Plastic birch.

                            I am not buying from them so have not priced it. We have decided to use Christmas greens for a similar look and I have some in my basement that will work.

                              We get our "greens" from a dollar store - usually $2.00 a cluster. They last forever. Also the round topiary balls are nice to decorate xc fences - Try Home Sense or Winners.

                                Some thoughts? I like dollar store (Dollar Tree where it is actually just a dollar) for filler because it is inexpensive and I can easily replace if needed. Maybe ask a neighbor if they trim any bushes or branches if they can give them to you so you can make them filler... I had a bush that I trimmed in my old yard that would have been fantastic as filler!

                                https://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/f...h-for-xc-jumps
                                https://diyhorseownership.com/diy-ho...of-scrap-wood/ (you could mix the dollar store ones with something thicker like the bottoms of brooms that you can also find at the dollar store - as seen as a suggestion in first link - for the thick brush effect)
                                https://www.chronofhorse.com/forum/f...-fill-on-jumps

                                You could also try Amazon. Here is a three pack of artificial branches that would probably work, not too expensive depending on how many you need... if dollar store has nothing, this could be an option:

                                  I was look for brush for a jump similar to this where it is attached to the jump not fill. I was going to try to recreate this jump with 2 lines of brush.

                                    Can't you just drill some holes and stick filler in that way?

                                      Do you have an auction nearby? We do. And I often see stuff like that for cheap.

                                        We used corn stalks --just the tops all pushed together --it does not last long (about a month or so) unless the horses eat it.
