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!

  • stubben cyber Monday and Tuesday sale.

    Most of the sale saddles are going for $695. Incredibly good deal for those who need a cheap saddle that is better than just cheap. Take a look. They've got saddle for all disciplines.
    http://www.stubbennorthamerica.com/s...ebsaddles.html

    They have their monoflap eventing saddle in multiple sizes and tree widths. It's the Excalibur S, and I've never even seen one. If anyone knows anything about this saddle, please post as I'm thinking it might be just what I need to make me a happy rider. I was very happy with the Roxane S and the position it put me in. It felt very secure. The Excalibur might be being discontinued. Or might not.

    I hate you so much for posting that! I cannot justify buying another saddle--but wow those are amazing prices. I LOVE my Roxane S and my ancient Krefeld, and I love the way they fit TBs.

            So did anyone end up getting one?? I called Stubben this morning to see what they had left and it didn't sound like too much. The lady was really nice and did some searches for me to try and find something that would work.

            I will have to jump on it if they do it again! Hope y'all were able to get one!

              By the time I saw this thread the place was closed for the day. I talked to an employee at a tack shop last night, then the management called me back first thing this a.m. and were working on it - the saddles flew right out from under us as we were trying to buy. Some dealers faxed their orders in last night and they got the preference. I wish that I had known that it could have been done that way. DD is

                I just called Stubben 2 minutes ago, and they do have some Excaliburs left, all in 30 cm or smaller tree widths. Jim, the guy I talked to said that most TBs take a 28 or 29, and it just so happens that they still have three in a seat size I can use in the 29.

                If you are thinking of ordering, Valley Tack in Ohio and a place in Atlanta would be good dealers to go through, per Jim. Valley Tack is the dealer that they use at Rolex, and he recommends using them for web sales. Says a lot of their regular dealers aren't too happy with this sale because there is very little money in it for them.

                So if you really want one, I'd suggest calling the 800 number for Stubben, finding out if they still have a saddle that you're interested in available, then calling Valley Tack to set payment and shipment. Valley Tack's number is (330) 483-3366.

                Now a fashion question. Would you want ebony (dark brown) or tabac (yellow, will darken to Newmarket) for one red bay and two dark bays?

                    I got one!!!

                    I got the Edelweiss NT Deluxe G 16.5"/32cm in Havana.

                    I went through Dover. They were very, very helpful.

                    I paid a grand total of $635. I still don't believe it.

                    Christmas definitely came early!

                        I got an Edelweiss NT 17"/32cm in Havana! I have never ridden in a Stubben so we shall how it fits us. I really wanted one in ebony, but the one in my size and tree size was already sold.

                          I bought the Genesis deluxe - I wish I had known that around 29 and 28 fit TB's since I couldn't get the color I wanted and had to get Tobacco for my two chestnuts! Anyone have any idea how that will look??

                          Does anyone have any experience with the Genesis? I have the Roxanne and LOVE it

                            Pointtaker86- I bet you will be just fine with the lighter color, esp since you have chestnuts. You could always try to darken the leather if you end up not liking how it looks on your chestnuts.

                              I ride in a custom-fitted Excalibur and I can't say enough about it. It's a more reasonably priced version of the CWD/Devacoux/Antares (pick a logo color, they're all pretty much the same) with the all the usual Stubben quality. It's got a bit more of a forward balance than some of their other saddles, in trend with the other monoflap designs on the market, and gives you a really solid feeling going up, down, or over just about any jump.

                              I know the sale is over, but if you ever get the chance to try one out, I would go for it!

                                Very glad to hear this. Thank you. I don't have any experience with Stubbens, nor do I know anyone that does, so this has made me feel a lot better about my purchase. I went ahead and purchased an Edelweiss NT.

                                  Holy fast shipping, Batman! UPS just delivered my saddle. I ordered it lunchtime on Tuesday.

                                  I can't wait to ride in it. Definite step up from my Wintec. Anyone else have their saddle arrive?

                                    Stubbens are generally well made and long lasting saddles. They have been favorites of foxhunters for decades. They might not be softest to ride but they wear like iron.

                                        Mine arrived today! An Edelweiss NT Deluxe. I almost hugged the UPS guy I was so excited! I wasn't expecting it until tomorrow or Saturday so this was a nice surprise. I hurried right out to the barn to see how it fit my mare and it looks pretty good! I'm having my saddle fitter out to double check. I still am waiting for someone to pinch me regarding the price. Such a good deal.
