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!

    It makes me sad that I can't order any of their breeches, I'm a size 40 US and they don't carry bigger sizes.

      no experience or opinion on leather quality whatsoever unfortunately.... but for what it's worth, that's the one I'm considering!

        I was looking at either that one or the Madame.

          I bought the cheapest bridle on there, the Gorgeous or whatever, as a schooling bridle for the baby horse. It should be arriving tomorrow so I will make sure to come back with reviews, and maybe even get it on her for a photoshoot!

              Does anyone know how their blankets run and know how durable they are?

                ARGH can't get the order to process


                • #48
                  Yeah another code I just got two saddle pads, bridle numbers, a jacket and a hair bonnet for $30 including shipping. This is getting addictive

                    I've bought from them once. Bought the Gorgueze bridle as a "for dressage shows only" bridle....

                    You're really not going to do much better on a bridle that price. The leather is pretty passable. Does it compare to stubben? nope. But it's pretty pliable and looks nice.

                    I also got a fleece sheet for $18. haven't had a chance to use it, but it seems pretty heavy duty from what I can tell taking it out of the package and oogling it.... ;-)

                      Ok so I love some things I have gotten from Horze... other things that went in the garbage after first use! Things I love: the bit I purchased, and both of the saddle pads. What I hated/threw away: the 'pile-lined brush boots' which completely ripped during the first 30 min flat ride. Pie interfered ONCE behind and the boots were toasted. NOT worth it, even though I got them with a 50% off coupon.

                      Sooo I would be a bit cautious about anything that you need to be durable.

                        FINALLY! I had posted something on a thread in the horse care section of COTH. Listen folks, tread very carefully with this site. I would definitely stay away from the blankets/rugs!!! It is cheap for a reason and you get what you pay for.

                        Bridles...well, they will come to your horse smelling like quality but be very careful as the stitching and leather is often not of good quality.

                        I will add to the poster's comment above:

                        Be cautious about anything you need to be durable....AND SAFE!

                          Thanks for posting this. I was seriously considering ordering the stud girth. I guess if it seems too good to be true...

                            GREAT1 isn't giving me 50% off anymore and AWESOME2 just gives a free sponge???

                            Can someone hook me up with the correct code?


                            • #54
                              GREAT1 worked for me yesterday.

                                I bought a few cheap things from Horze in the past (last time they were having a 50% off AND FREE shipping sale).

                                I got a cheap nylon halter that looks great (I get compliments on it) and has held up well, especially for $5. A few brushes that were nice for the price, and a set of spurs.

                                I noticed that some of their blankets are 300D thats REALLY low - usually the CHEAPO $45 blankets sold at horse.com etc are 450D. I won't ever go below 600D (which still ends up with tears). 1200D is what most quality blankets are.

                                But I am sure you could get away with coolers and fleeces etc. I would be wary of the turn outs (even though they are so cute!)

                                  Ikea for tack

                                  this place reminds me of Ikea ... super low prices, European type store (I think they are out of Finland), hit or miss quality. If its good, its great, if is meh, then it justifies the cheap price.

                                  But, I love a sale just as much as the next person and ordered some combi polo wraps, so we'll see. For 12 bucks for a set of 4, if its horrible quality, its not a big deal. If they are good, its a deal !!

                                  Where is their warehouse in the US ? I think someone said its nearby to Mass ?

                                    I like their saddle pads.

                                      Great1 and Awesome2 worked for me. I just placed my order not but a few hours ago. And no, you can't get another 50% after taking off 50%. I tried.

                                      I ordered the basics- saddle pads, whips, and a fleece cooler. I can report back once they arrive.

                                        Neither code worked for me either. Some of the stuff made me nervous too. If I can get a code to work, Im going for whips and a pad. Im weird about breeches
