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!

  • Boyd Martin's new boots - Majyk Equipe

    Has anyone at Rolex seen these new boots? Thoughts? I run my horses in Premiere Equine (back only) and Nunn Finer (fronts), but am always open to a new product!

  • #2
    I guess I did see them for sale at Rolex today, but didn't give them a second glance since I'd never heard of them. Love the price!


    • Original Poster

      What is the price? They've only been released this weekend and I can't find much out about them online. I'd love to know more... ie, coverage, strike guard material, overall thoughts on them.

        I have their open front boots. Love them. Bought after seeing a thread here. I have the eskadrons verduras and honesty they don't hold a candle. The material is nice and holds up well. The lining is like the t boots but they stay cooler. They have that rear strike pad which makes me feel safer for my guys tendons. The price is also great. I would love to see the xc boots.
        I am on my phone 90% of the time. Please ignore typos, misplaced lower case letters, and the random word butchered by autocowreck.

          If you go to their home page, the list prices are along with the "Products". Figures! I spent we'll over $200 on SJ boots at Rolex yesterday

              Are there pictures anywhere? I'm curious to see what they look like but couldn't find any yesterday.

                I have the open front memory foam Majyk Equipe boots, I LOVE them but my horse dislikes the hinds so I will continue to use a lower end pair for the hinds. I dont know it they are just too much for his hind legs but he seems to not travel as well with them.

                I would love to see their XC boots, have been waiting on them since they said they were going to come out at the end of 2012 but never did. Would probably want to see a few horses go in the XC boots and get my hands on them before deciding on them. Great prices though!


                • #9
                  I handled the xc boots today & was quite impressed! They sre SUPER light weight and have a nice shield in them. Might need some in the future

                    i have a set of their original open front and ankle boots and LOVE them. they're light and breathe well. too bad i don't think you can buy those anymore (they're the non-memory foam ones) as i'd love another set.

                      I have the open fronts and hinds for my older boy and I love them. His hair gets rubbed off with most non-leather boots except Veredus, but these ones aren't having that effect. They are well-made, don't heat up the legs, and fit really well. They also seem to be holding up better than his $$$ Veredus.

                        They are very nice!! Can't wait to get my own set, the price point can't be beat!


                        • #13
                          Saw them at a trade show. They're Eskadron types. Somewhere quality wise between Eskadron and the Romas and priced accordingly.

                            Info on the boots

                            I stopped by the booth today and their sales person took me through the whole thing. Apparently the boots are made with the same technology that Nike uses - the x country boots have no rip material and are really well made - the jump boots have the same air shock technology you see on high end running shoes. My friend bought a pair of the regular Majyk boots a while ago and swears by them so I'm not surprised Boyd has signed up with this company even though they're not one of the bigger brands.

                            I did go on their web site and their are some test results that show they outperformed some of the leading boots. I think the people behind these boots used to make shoes for athletes so it seems to make sense with the Nike connection and all. I bought a pair of the Boyd x country boots - they are more than the regular Majyk boots but still under $100 so that's good by me compared to all the super expensive ones I've bought before......
                            Can't wait to get home and try them on my gelding.

                              Impact studies are great BUT where are the heat studies
                              not to just single out Majyk Equipe in this regard, I find that no boot manufacturers seem to report the actual tendon temperatures when horse exercises with/without their "breathable" product ...

                              (hoping a Majyk rep will drop by with a temp report )

                                Right, it'd be so weird if a rep was already on this thread and didn't self identify.

                                  Love the idea of the memory foam and the looks but was also wondering about heat build up. Of course, I just ordered the PE Air Cooled from Smartpak last night but will watch the reviews on these. Ya can't have too many boots, right?

                                    bumping this thread up - wondering if people have them yet. I put my hands on a pair today and I think I'm sold. My mare is not liking her PE boots, I don't put them on her for long/often, but I think they irritate her. These boots definitely seem like they will mold to the leg, and the inside was very soft to the touch.

                                    Would love more feedback - and the price I thought was rather reasonable!

                                    Top Rail Tack carries them, Joe was really nice and I will order more stuff from him in the future!


                                    ETA - I meant to say I am referring to the XC boots specifically, although I am interested in hearing more about the open fronts and hinds - I am thinking about the open front and hind set for my every day boot. I generally have her in a fake sheepskin hind boot - she has very very sensitive skin!

                                      After tearing 2 holes in our Tri Zone front cc boots a couple of weeks ago, the "rip stop" technology caught my attention. Probably wait until the AECs since I'd like to see them 1st. I hope one of the vendors there will have them.

                                        Top Rail Tack (at many area II events) now carries them. I have seen them up close in action and am pretty impressed. I have been running in Dalmar fronts (12 years old) and PE hinds. I like the hinds, but the newer Dalmars are too stiff and give my guy rub marks, so I'm probably going to get the Majyks in front and see how they are.
