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!

  • Halters - updated to say they are fabulous

    I own tack destroyers. So many of my horses go through halters very fast. Just found a great new (to me) source and have ordered. Will let you know if the quality meets expectations:

    Love the belts too! I have been needing a new belt for riding...

    And a new leather halter for my boy...

    I might need to do some saving.

    Update on the quality when you receive yours!
    I have Higher Standards... do you?

          This year I finally found something to help with the ripped sheets, blankets, rugs. Walmart, yes, Wally World to the rescue. In the sewing section I found stickyback cloth that repairs rips. Cheap. As in $2 for a packet. Nylon, waterproof, two pieces that will cover about 12 inches of rips. Navy, and green. I do not know why it took me so long to find this stuff but darn it's good and saved me a freakin' ton of repair money this winter!

              The Ocala Tack Shack makes beautiful halters, and they will take $15 off your first(?) order if you are FB friends AND free shipping on orders over $50! I recently purchased two, and they are just as beautiful as my Walsh halter's (which they are replacing - old show halters & downgraded to everyday halters). Very nice people, too.

                Agree on Tack Shack; I ordered one to use as an everyday halter, and then started taking it to shows with me and using it instead of my Walshes... even though I had them with me. I like it so well that I am ordering another... and I sold my Walsh halters. Wonderful to work with, as well!

                    They came today, leather is soft and lovely. I would say they are easily the equivalent of $80-90 halters that you have to pay extra for the nameplates on and come in several color combinations with brass or silver hardware and willing to customize in various ways if needed. I'll be getting all of my halters from here in the future. They can use a good conditioning. He tells me they are Amish made

                      where you do add the name that needs to be included?
                      ~in the check out comments section?

                      I'm going to have my owner order a Padded Mahogany.
                      I was just thinking about how the new horsie needed a halter. Our others have their own leather with name plates, Abby should be no different.

                        a quick PSA

                        I am required to turn my horse out wearing a halter. I use leather and sometimes they break and that is ok with me.

                        However, once while playing halter tug of war, the nameplate came unrivited on one side and the nameplate stuck out perpendicular to his face. Needless to say, I no longer turnout with nameplates.

                        no one was hurt but I shudder to think how badly a horse could have been hurt.


                        Now I just magic marker his name on the halter when the nameplate would go.

                          Show halters get nameplates. Turn out halters get duct tape with name in magic marker (or I duct tape over the edges of the nameplates and the rivets)

                          Purpl - I think I just emailed them with the specifics of what I wanted at the same time I placed the order online, but I did also put it in the comments section

                            Horse pulled back hard at a show and finally broke the pretty solid snap on the leadrope, but the Tack Shack halter held, with only a tiny (2 mm?) tear on the surface at one of the punched holes. $54.70 with nameplate and throatlatch snap and leather quality is good (no conditioning needed). Now if I'd only known about the FB thing first. Oh well.

                              Is that for a padded halter? Because that is what I had been having trouble finding.

                                I thought the Padded Leather Halther at TachShack was $85.

                                The one at Danzig looks lovely (Padded) and at $59, that's a crazy good deal.

                                I don't have a Leather Halter at all, and I've always wanted one...hmmm...which one to get

                                  No. Basic triple-stitched. I have a photo but FB isn't cooperating at the moment.

                                    I recently ordered a halter from Bill Danzig. It arrived a week or two ago and it was love at first sight for me! It's a gorgeous padded halter with the brass nameplate. It's not for turnout - waaaaay too nice for that! but my mare will be making a statement at her first horse show when she steps off the trailer wearing it

                                    I wrote a little review on my blog with photos here: http://lucysquest.blogspot.com/2011/...-bros-llc.html

                                    Bill also emailed me to personally thank me for my business.

                                      HELP!

                                      I don't know what to pick.

                                      I was going to go for the mahogany but the mare would be sooooo cute with pink padding.

                                      picture of mare:
                                      she's plain dark bay and VERY feminine.

                                      http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p...aboom/abby.jpg

                                      is pink padding gross?
                                      what color leather?
                                      what color buckles?

                                      I hate having to make these life and death decisions!

                                        I vote black leather with burgundy padding and nickel hardware. I really like that look on the bays
