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 saddle sale now over

    For those who are looking or missed the last big Stubben sale.

    During the last week in September (26th-30th) we will have a special Saddlepalooza sale on our website featuring nearly 400 saddles with special Saddlepalooza prices. These saddles are manufacturer's samples and demo saddles. Some have some wear on them, and some look brand new, and all have been priced accordingly. These prices will be lower than any seen since our Black Monday sale last year (that sold out in less than 2 days), and we have again included just about every type of saddle we make, including dressage saddles. We hope you can take advantage of this opportunity and look forward to hearing from you.

    We again will be posting a special Saddlepalooza webpage link through our email list and on our facebook page.

                      Thanks! Which one are you looking at? I looked at the Genesis dressage today- but no idea what they'll have. I feel weird guessing about a tree size though- since they aren't adjustable.

                      I tried a broken-in 30cm on my horse, and it looked good (about 3 fingers wither clearance, right shape in the tree and panels), but I wonder if it will still have enough clearance girthed up. I couldn't find a 29 to try.

                        Will someone post the url when it's posted? please

                            I just called Stubben and they said to call back after 12noon.

                              For those of you who don't have Facebook... here is the link!


                              They didn't have what I needed... which is both a good and bad thing, but I wish the rest of you luck! Happy shopping

                                  I paid $575 for my Edelweiss NT Deluxe last year. This year they're selling them for $1000-$1400...yikes. I'm glad I got mine when I did!

                                    I've never bought a stubben before. But I'm browsing right now and thinking about getting one. I need a new jumping saddle. Any suggestions on model?

                                      and has anyone ridden in the biomex? Is it worth $200 more?


                                      • Original Poster

                                        These are my thoughts on Stubbens, but I've only had three. The design is not so much in the name as in the Designation Letters after the saddle name. For my body, both the old fashioned All Purpose Jumping style Siegfried VSS and the Romanus CS put me in a chair seat. I think Stubben designed for a slightly defensive riding position, particularly in the hunt field. I would suppose that all CSs would have the same tree and stirrup bar placement, and that all would put ME in the same defensive/chair seat position.

                                        The Roxane S, on the other hand, was perfect for me. It put me in a very secure and correct forward balance. There are two things that I learned from buying the Roxane S: 1) because it is a deep seat, the saddle fitter told me I needed at least a half inch larger size than in a flatter saddle; 2) as originally stuffed, it did not fit my classic lanky TB and rubbed his withers raw. Stubben restuffed it for me free and we had no problems whatsoever afterwards. I cannot recommend the Roxane S more highly. BUT when you call to talk to the Stubben reps, ask about what will happen if it needs restuffing to fit a particular horse. I know they have access to a saddler at their headquarters.

                                        About Biomex--Stubben is rather famous for hard seats. I've never noticed because I have so much personal padding. Biomex was their response to changes to softer saddle seats by other manufacturers.

                                        Parenthetically, the S apparently stands for Springen/jumping. And D for Dressage. Perhaps the CS stands for Chair Springen?
