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!

  • A second MIPS Skull Cap exists on the market with ASTM approval - Champion Revolve

    For the longest time I was bummed that Champion helmets were never submitted for ASTM testing. I LOVED the ones I had before ASTM was instituted. (WAY back). I emailed them years ago and asked why not and the very British answer back was "Because we don't need to to sell them."

    So I was surprised today to see a Champion helmet being sold on the Adams Horse Supply Website. I checked and sure enough....ASTM approved. So then I went googling and sure enough Champion was one of the UK brands that I knew was producing MIPS helmets. Shockingly and happily their new "Revolve" line of MIPS helmets are all ASTM approved and have MIPS on board.

    So for my Skull cap friends... you can explore beyond the Charles Owen MIPS skull cap. And I do know that One K mentioned they too are forthcoming with a MIPS skull cap.

    https://championhats.co.uk/product/r...jockey-helmet/

    I found them on one tack shop site so far, https://a2bequestrian.com/mips-186-c.asp

    150 GBP = $191 at the current exchange rate.

    I am sure there are others and I bet that this will be a hit item in the Olympia Trade Fair.


    Hope this helps someone!!!

          So, I have been wearing the trusty Tipperary Sportage for about 10 years now. I hated the look at first but can't beat the comfort (especially the venting) and price. Before that I had a Charles Owen skull cap which always dented my forehead. (I recently wore it when I visited my parents and went for a quick ride, and remembered how uncomfortable it was!)

          Can anyone say what MIPS helmet is a good stand-in for the fit of a Sportage?

            Blugal, the tipperary fits me better than any other helmet. My head is very round. The MIPS that fits me best is the Trauma Void. It is also quite comfortable.

              Thanks! Are you in the EQ3 or the Lynx?

                  I had the Trauma Void and just gave it away after I had a bad show with it! It came with two liners and I changed one out right before my stadium round- it seemed to fit fine- till I got in the ring and started jumping- I was slipping and sliding all over- I was surprised I was not dismissed from the class! It was too round for my oval shaped head. I just got in a replacement- the Charles Owen Skull Cap with MIPS. I hope to God this one fits better!

                    I posted this in Off Topic, but nobody gave a crap. Apparently the ASTM standard doesn't amount to a hill of beans compared to Europe. I found this comparison at a vendor for Champion last week. If this is accurate, I'd much rather have what they have over there.

                      We've discussed that at length before. But the USEF follows ASTM so I mean... not many options. You could compete in a non ASTM helmet but if anyone recognized that you were wearing a non-ASTM helmet they could report you to the TD and get you eliminated. I don't think any of us want to lose show money that way.

                      RSEventer you do know that the liners are completely different right? One is larger than the other. They're not to just swap when one gets sweaty.

                        I haven't tried the new MIPS helmet from Champion but I do have their SNELL approved skull cap and it is a fantastic helmet, extremely well made. I've much preferred this brand over the Charles Owen helmets I've had.

                          So I'm required to wear a less safe helmet?? That's absurd.

                            No- there are helmets that meet the requirements of both the USEF and other nations safety standards.

                              Funny. I love my Tipperary Sportage. I prefer the Lynx. The Lynx lets you adjust the angle of the chin strap, but the EQ3 doesn't.

                                Just remember that Tipperary is coming out with a MIPS helmet of their own called the "Windsor" in early 2020.

                                  I am looking forward to that but after reading your story, I knew I had no excuse not to get something for the rest of this winter.

                                  My one and only but very bad concussion came from a horse slipping at trot, so I know it can happen. Winter riding for me is as hazardous as I feel it gets! Snow, ice, fresh clipped horses, riding on the roads, etc.

                                      DAMN!!! I have said that on so many threads!!! I'm so sorry for not saying it again. I have talked to them and I would think, maybe, that they may alter that in the future but you never know.

                                      Not all sales people knew. I know that Linny has done a ton in the Dover store that she works at to have all of the helmet information in front of the buyers and to make sure that everyone tries BOTH liners and knows what fits and what doesn't. I would love to just go from store to store and work to help people to know more about these awesome helmets. But that's not my job. LOL

                                        Bumping to add a thumbs up for the CO with MIPS. Just got a skull - there were several styles at the store. I hope the slidey liner doesn't drive me crazy, but it seemed very stable at the store no matter what I did with my head, and that was without the chin strap done. Also, yay, it doesn't touch my ears. Seems more oval than the new Pro II and fits a lot like the Fian, if that helps anyone.
