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!

      They are very nice, fit my horse and look to be well made.

      Also ordered the rain sheet:

        Can anyone who ordered the Venice bridle in full size measure the browband for me? I have a draft/paint cross with a wide forehead. Not big enough for OS tack, but needs at least a 16.5" browband. Hoping this bridle will work for him as I think the wider noseband will be quite flattering on his big head!

        Thanks!

          So I'm wondering if the Active line is adequate, or if it's worth spending a bit more on one of the other types.

          I own their Victoria Breeches THEY ARE AMAZING! THey are very stretchy. They don't feel confining. I have a hard time finding breeches that don't feel like they are falling of my butt and these fit like they are supposed to.
          The full seat is very comfortable and I have enjoyed riding in them. They are also very stylish and I full admit to sporting them outside the horse side of things with some fur lined wellies from Goode Rider I'm going to order the fleece lined versions they have as well. I think they are called the Betzy. With that 50% off It's crazy not to stock up now.

            Yay! My package finally came today so here's my review. I'm on the West coast and shipping took a week to get here. A little faster than Smartpak but still a little slow. Oh and it was a bit embarrassing that the whole box was covered in tape that says "whores" all over it

            http://www.horze.com/Horze-Grand-Pri...&cgid=Breeches
            Like someone else said....I didn't realize the knee patches were fabric but it doesn't bother me. The breeches are really nice. I love the fabric and they look really flattering on. I didn't know what the rise was...none of the breeches say in the description. The rise on these sit just below my navel so I would call them mid-rise on me. I am very short waisted and only wear low rise anymore but these seem great! They are super comfy on. They are really long in the length. I'm 5'6" and usually wear long in my breeches but these go all the way to my feet and makes the knees baggy. I'm going to take them tomorrow and see if I can get them hemmed for cheap. I usually wear a 30L but right now these have been...ahem...a little tight lately. So I ordered the 30 and they fit really well.

            http://www.horze.com/Horze-ProTec-Bo...id=Boots-wraps
            These look really well made and are very nice looking. I got the black. They don't seem to be made of plastic that is as hard as the Eskadrons (which have lasted forever) so I'll have to see how they hold up.

            I got several pair of socks and they are both really really nice. I am a sock whore so these really excited me They are very well made and looks like they will last quite a bit longer than my Target socks!

            I bought the boot shapers also and they look better made than all the other ones that just fall apart so easily....we'll see!

            I'm really impressed and will place another order before the sale is over!

              I just placed an order for the Venice in full and will let you know! My mare is the same, needs a long-enough browband but not necessarily a completely OS bridle. 16.5" might be quite a stretch for a full bridle though

              I also ordered the Avalanche Rain Rug in the same purple as the OP and am curious to see how the sizing runs. These look just like the Eous cuts and styles though, so I'm sure it's similar.

              To round out my order was the Garda halter in the magenta color for $12 and the Phoebe rubber boots for $11 (in white-- couldn't bring myself to buy the red!!!). Hope the nylon is nicer on the Garda halter than the Edinburg

              Thank you for starting this post-- it's been very helpful! Or detrimental, at least to my wallet!

                You all are KILLLING Me! Oh why did BOTH cars have to break down last week?

                Humph - and those rain sheets are so cute - but instead I am going to spend next weekend with a needle and thread, some liquid stitch, and waterproofing spray to get gear ready for winter.

                I really need some breeches to! Killing me! Please promise me they WILL have another 50% off sale, preferably in the spring

                    Well I felt quite accomplished after hubby and I successfully installed a new CV joint in my car this weekend (although it did involve a heavy amount of cursing). Saved lots of $$ doing it ourselves – but I still can’t justify buying any of this OMG Super Cute and SO Cheap stuff!

                      I ordered a bunch of stuff yesterday, so will report back with a review

                      I just got a "thank you for registering" email from them, and at the bottom of the email it says "You are also entered in a monthly drawing where the winner gets to choose their favorite horse related charity which will receive $500 donated in your name!". How cool is that?!?! Not only 50% off EVERYTHING, but on top of it they donate $500 each month to a horse charity? I like this company!

                        For what it's worth, I got the daily bridle in full size which seems to be very similar to the Venice bridle. The browband is HUGE! (not like omg this is wayy too big huge, but definitely looks more like an OS size browband). If the Venice bridle browband is anything like the daily, you'll definitely be okay in that department. On that note, I'm very impressed with the daily bridle- I'd definitely recommend it. I was debating between the Venice and the Daily but chose the Daily b/c the noseband wasn't quite as massive. It's still quite wide though, but looks very nice. For $34, I'm happy with my purchase!

                          We tried to do it ourselves, DH spent the better part of two days a. learning about mc engines, and b. taking mine apart twice. No idea, maybe carburetor, but he at least got it running enough that I could limp it to a shop (died at every light and stop sign, with much backfiring, felt super classy ).

                          I did get an email that one of the the products I ordered, their "Pharmacare" leather cleaner/conditioner, was out of stock. The email came on Monday, I placed my order Wednesday (a week ago), and I really hope my package shows up soon...

                              Got my breeches and a pair of winter boots yesterday. The breeches are quite nice and the fit is just about perfect. Glad I took a chance for $55. I don't know that they are worth $100+ but I would certainly buy another pair if they came up at half off again. The winter boots are nice, too--we'll see how they hold up! Shipping was pretty darn speedy (I think I ordered Monday?) and I will provisionally put Horze on my list of places to shop. I am pretty patient most of the time and will wait for big sales and free shipping, so if they make a habit of that they'll enjoy my patronage.

                                I ordered Monday or Tuesday and got them today. I had to walk across campus with a box taped up with Horze print tape. I got quite a few looks and more questions from a few passing friends. Anyways!

                                I got back to my room and was super impressed with everything.

                                http://www.horze.com/Horze-Grand-Pri...t=2&q=breeches

                                The Grand prix breeches in the French Blue. Look great, material seems to be hardy and will last a while, feel good on and they are flattering. A bit large, but I will deal. Only complaint, but I think was mentioned before was the fact that the knee patches are the same fabric of the breech. No problem for me, but to some it may be.

                                http://www.horze.com/Horze-Silvia-De...=12&q=breeches

                                So freaking cute! The Silvia in the dark denim are my first pair of jean breeches and I love them. The fit is nice, flattering, and good sturdy material. They are also long enough!! It is an amazing thing.

                                http://www.horze.com/Horze-Stock-Tie...,en_US,pd.html

                                The stock tie was a replacement for mine that is getting a bit grungy. I did not read the description for pre tied, but I am ok with that. This will be a further backup. For $7 the material is silky, pretty, and comfortable. I like it a lot.

                                http://www.horze.com/Horze-Head-Numb...rt=5&q=numbers

                                Great as I hate having to switch over the paper number or make one from an old number. For about $2.50 I never have to fiddle with paper numbers on my halter again.

                                http://www.horze.com/Horze-Silver-Cr...q=saddle%20pad

                                This saddle pad is nice! Got it for a show dressage pad on my grey. He will look stunning in this and I cannot wait to use it. Very nice pad!

                                    Finally got my order exactly 1 week after placing it (so well within their time frame, but I was expecting the UPS truck way sooner )
                                    Breeches were way too big, so I am exchanging them and also returning 1 pair. It is asking me for my BANK information, account number and signature...
                                    I paid via Paypal and would expect a refund on that account. I am quite a bit leery about giving them all my banking information. Anyone has experience with returns/refunds?

                                          Got my breeches and my bit today. Their chain/waterford bit looks to be well made, I'll see how my guy likes it tomorrow. The breeches fit well, look great, and seem to be of quality...they're just LONG! They bunch around my ankles long. Keeping in mind that I usually have to buy a long in other breeches. Since everything else fits so well, I'll just do some creative hemming to fix the problem.
