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!

  • Best Lip Balm with SPF (HR)

    This really is horse related! I was at Morven 2 weeks ago watching SJ and XC and my lips got sunburned (as did the rest of my face). I plan on being out at a lot more events this year and my lips can't take being sunburned again. I've looked all over the label of my beloved Burt's Bees lip balm and it says nothing about SPF

    Any suggestions on a good lip balm with SPF?

    I definitely have a Burts Vee's lip balm with spf 15 so maybe keep looking? I also really like Blistex lip balm. Burnt lips are the worst, I usually slather rosebalm salve on them after I've (inevitably) burned them

      This - best ever. http://www.totalbeauty.com/reviews/p...ip-balm-spf-15
      I agree that burned, chapped lips at the events are the worst. I use this on my horse with the big snip http://www.walmart.com/ip/Neutrogena...-5-oz/17206685

        The best healing one is Polysporin. It is wonderful - I also used it on my cracked nose when I had a very bad cold, and it would heal overnight. SPF 30. I have one in my purse and one on my nightstand.

          Most of the Burt's Bees don't have SPF. They used to offer one in their outdoor line with SPF but I don't see it on their website anymore.
          Flip a coin. It's not what side lands that matters, but what side you were hoping for when the coin was still in the air.

          You call it boxed wine. I call it carboardeaux.

            I keep going back to boring old Chapstick. Just make sure you go to the trouble to seek out the high SPF line instead of picking one of the flavors.

              Say Yes to Carrots: http://www.yestocarrots.com/category...nav_id=0000069 Doesn't cause your lips to become dry or irritated, smells yummy, works great, very cool company.

                Ooh, GotSpots, I am definitely trying that as I love pomegranate. This is another favorite. They used to have it at CVS, but I haven't been able to find it recently http://www.amazon.com/MISSION-Skinca.../dp/B003DQOQSU

                  Carmex is the best stuff in the world, only thing I don't find myself reapplying 18 times a day. All varieties are SPF 15.


                  • #10
                    This stuff from the Body Shop is AWESOME. Have been using it for years.

                    I really dislike all of the petroleum products in most grocery store chapsticks.


                    • #11
                      My favorites are the Chapstick Lipshield 365 (SPF 50) and Dermatone Medicated Lip Balm (SPF 23).

                      I tried the Banana Boat Sunscreen Lip Balm with Aloe Vera (SPF 45) and I absolutely hate it. It leaves a nasty taste/feel on my lips.

                      My favorite general lip balm is the Dr. Bronner's Naked Lip Balm but no SPF

                      I love Burt's Bees too but I feel it wears off more quickly

                        I don't know if it's available in the states, but I swear by Ombrelle Lip Balm SPF30. Smooth on the lips, not waxy but lasts.
                        At its finest, rider and horse are joined not by tack, but by trust. Each is totally reliant upon the other. Each is the selfless guardian of the other's very well-being.

                          I have used the Chapstick with the blue label (Moisturizer? I know it has SPF) for YEARS. Love it.

                            Trader Joe's Virtuoso. Trust me--I am a lip balm addict and have tried everything!


                            • #15
                              I use burt's bees lifeguard's choice. Best stuff for me, though it turns my lips really light.
                              I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

                                Chapstick Ultra. The end.

                                i burnt my lips about ten years ago at an event and vowed NEVER AGAIN! Chapstick Ultra has SPF 30 and I'm obsessed with it whenever I show. I have about 20 in various places!! One in breech pocket, tack trunk, etc. If someone asks what they can bring to warmup - I always say water & chapstick! It isn't that easy to find the Ultra- look for an orange color on the tube. I'll buy other brands but the SPF has to be 30 min for my delicate face.... Blahaha!

                                i love Burts bees also BUT I never buy their lip balm 'cause the spf is non- existent or too low!

                                  Just an FYI--Chapstick brand is made by Pfizer (who bought out Wyeth) . That's the same company who makes Premarin. For me, learning that tidbit altered my shopping pattern.

                                    I have 4-5 different lip glosses w/ SPF and this is the one that I carry everywhere:


                                    I haven't looked for it on Amazon yet, but this stuff is fabulous!

                                      I am sure the woman who use Premarin because it is the only thing that works for them totally understand...

                                      I am not a chapstick fan because it feels heavy on my lips. When it comes to sunscreen lip balm the chapstick ultra does seem to work the best.

                                        So many choices! Thanks for all the replies. Looks like I'll be spending lots of time trying out lip balms
