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 Black Monday saddle sale November 19th

    It will open at 9 am with a Facebook posting and then at 10am, Stubben will send out a blast email to everyone on its list.

    The last one was in 2010, and quite a few people scored really great saddle deals.

      It's a sale with listed saddles and phone purchases. You don't have to sign up to buy, but you won't have the list unless you get the special webpage.

      If you're one of their facebook people, you'll be able to see the saddle list early; otherwise, you can sign up for their (very rare) emails.
      As 2012 comes close to an end, we at Stübben want to thank you for your continued support of our products. On Monday, November 19th we will have another Black Monday sale on our website, featuring well over 250 saddles with special 'BLACK' prices. Many of you remember our Black Monday sale in 2010 and have asked for us to do it again, so here it is! The prices will be great, and include just about every type of saddle we make, including many dressage saddles.

      The Black Monday Sale is this Monday, November 19 (and could even spill over into Tuesday). We will post the link to our Black Monday saddles on our Facebook page at 9am. We will send out a blast email with the link @ 10am, so if you're not a fan on Facebook, use the link below to join so you'll get first crack at the list.

      We hope you can take advantage of this opportunity and look forward to hearing from you on Monday.


      Call or Email us for more information.
      Call us at (800) 550-1110, Email us at info@stubbennorthamerica.com

        Thanks, viney. I am not a Facebooker, so I sent them an email. I hope that's sufficient. The other link just sent me to their website; it had no info on the sale.

            hmmm...I liked just liked them on FB. Still seems unlikely I'll be able to do anything (or THAT saddle, that is the right tree size for Toby and has the right flaps for me, will be on the list!), but, you never know!

              Does anyone know if there is a return policy for the saddles, or are they a more closeout 'all sales final' type approach?

              I am very much in the market for a saddle, have been dreaming about Stubbens, and this sale would be a massive coup for my budget, but since I haven't bought a Stubben since I got a 35-year-old Siegfried out of some lady's attic when I was 10, I'm a little nervous about getting one, having it be a total disaster, and then being in a situation where my budget is sunk into a saddle I can't use.

                Did anyone buy one in 2010? How does it work? Is there a number to call through the web link or do you order right online?

                  I suspect that - like their clearance saddles on the "Used" list - these will be final sale BUT if you have a rep out to fit saddles, they can pull from that list for you to try ...

                  A quick call will clarify & you can talk to a saddle specialist when you call in: no idea how this will work on Black Monday, but normally, you can essentially have a phone consult complete with back & forth photos ... (there are no Stubben reps in my area).

                  Generally the sale prices are such that you should be able to re-sell fairly easily (especially if you offer a trial) but that assumes a "common" seat/tree size.

                  As long as you're able to fit your horse, I suspect you'll like the saddle well enough UNLESS you're looking for a "couch-style" saddle; if Stubben had a tree straight enough for FP, I'd have no hesitation about grabbing one of these special deals
                  There were a number of folk (on the Eventing forum) that were very happy with their 2010 buys.

                    Well, rats, they didn't have the genesis dressage saddle in the right size. But some great deals on Excalibur S monoflap jump saddles. These are awesome!

                      What they don't say is that you have to buy the saddle THRU a DEALER. So you'd need to set up, make arrangements, to have a dealer on standby early a.m. and they need to have a fast dialing finger.

                      I should edit to add: we had a dealer trying to phone in a purchase for us during the 2010 sale (and the prices were also lower!) and she kept getting a busy signal. When she did get thru they said that the saddle sizes were sold out because of their fax orders - so some dealers know the game better.

                      Best deal is you have to know what you want before the sale starts and place an order with a dealer (already have all of your credit card/shipping info done) and then if that model/size does come up they need to have a fax or phone call with that information ready to go.

                        I thought the sale was NEXT week.

                        They have a couple of those Excaliburs in our size. I don't like the knee block, but I am such a minimalist. Are they forward enough? I need extra forward.

                          YB, the SG model is extra-forward. They had a few of these when the list was first posted

                              Well, I did it! They didn't have quite the model that I was lusting over going into the sale, but I figured that, as Alto brought up yesterday, at this price it would be pretty easy to resell and get my money back if it didn't work out.

                              I'm currently still riding in the same dressage saddle I got for Christmas when I was 12 (I am now 23 and probably 9" taller than I was then!), so I feel like the chances of it being an improvement over what I currently have are... high. I'm hoping to move up to 4th Level with my ex-eventer in the spring and am pretty over having a saddle too small to sit in correctly. Very excited!

                                BUT what did you get!!!


                                Note that a few of the saddles listed in the sale which are not on the NA site can be seen on the EU version - eg, the UK sub-site


                                From the now defunct Stubben UK site:
                                Colombo, Aramis Dressage

                                Romanus, Scandica, Parzival Dressage

                                All purpose assorted

                                & more

                                    I got a Parzival - I've seen a few in person and like them quite a bit, though 'mud brown' is, I will admit, not quite my dream color for a saddle (what copywriter thought that was a sexy color descriptor??). But in the grand scheme of things, color is pretty low on my priorities, so I am very very happy

                                      Oh this is bad... this is very bad... I've been scouring the internet for a specific Stubben for a while and I do believe it's on this list.

                                        Thanks again for everyone's advice (and enabling, haha). I've ridden in it once so far and the gamble appears, so far, to have paid off. Even if it is a somewhat heinous color that will in no way match with my black and white horse and grey and white color scheme, the price and fit were right and I'm very, very happy
