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!

  • Shout out for Stubben Saddles

    I just want to shout out for Stubben Saddles. Both my very tall sons ride in stubbens for dressage, stadium and cross country. They are all custom 19" long flap saddles (that did not cost extra) and fit bot them and their large young mares very well.

    There are some great shots from a combined with cross country schooling we did on the weekend in the saddles - one of which is brand new if anyone wants to see them.

      I am eagerly waiting my Stubben Edelweiss NT with Biomex to arrive. I ordered it over 10 weeks ago. I can hardly wait!!! Of course I think I am driving my sales guy nuts now calling to find out where it is ... I was good until week 10!!!

      I am riding in my old, old, old, Siegfried VSD 17.5" from when I was a teen. Still comfy even though there is a little ass to seat ratio issue...

      I did not even look at any other saddles when I went to order one. Love them!!

        My daughters grew up riding in Stubbens and my one daughter still has one of hers. When I was saddle shopping for Tucker, my draft cross, Stubben had just come out with the Siegfried in an extra wide tree! I was so happy!

          I'm a fan too!

          I just bought a used Portos for my 4 yr old, its a surprisingly nice saddle. Stubben's take on a French H/J saddle, the balance is very nice and it is a real close contact saddle.

              I love my super old but never going to die Stubben Siegfried! Sadly, it's a little too wide for my new guy so am on the hunt for a smaller tree...

              If anyone hears about a Stubben Siegfried 18" med tree, let me know!

                Also a fan. Both my jump and dressage saddle are Excaliburs. They fit my narrow tb very well. Wasn't crazy about the dressage saddle at first. I got it on ebay and the leather was very hard. But lots of TLC and it has gotten very nice!

                  Stubben is one of my sponsors, and I am so happy I went with them instead of some of the others that offered. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my saddles! They fit my horses great, are wool flocked in case they need to be changed, and they put my leg in a great position. I am very excited to get my new monoflap jump saddle. It is brand new, so I'm not sure of the model name yet, but I rode in a prototype. It was soooooo nice. Loved it.

                    I adore them. So delighted at several delicious finds last year on E-bay; nearly-new 20-year old Stubbens stopped in time in someone's tack room. One or the other will fit everything in my barn--from drafties to a wee TWH. My fave is a vintage Loreley--like an Imperator but with a suede doeskin seat!

                      I just found (and received!) my Stubben that I've been looking for for years! Took the first ride in it last night and am VERY happy with it, fits the big guy to a T.

                        I think that is the Excalibur. I test rode one and LOVED it, but decided against it as I needed something I could school my greenie in on the flat as well as jumping (could only invest in one expensive saddle at the time) and the massive thigh blocks prevented me from swinging my leg way back when I needed to for training purposes. So I went with the Roxanne and could not be happier!

                        Great customer service too!!

                          Actually, the current monoflap is the Excalibur. However, they have come out with a brand new model that no one has yet. I don't know the name. That is the monoflap that I ordered. It is fashioned after their Zaria show jump saddle, but it is a monoflap. It is much more French looking but with the traits of a Stubben.

                              I recently picked up a used Edelweiss for supercheap and am SO excited! I haven't actually been able to try it thanks to being out w/ an injury, but I so hope it fits as it's just gorgeous.

                                I love all of my Stubbens! I've got everything from an old Aramis, an OLD Wotan, and a Roxane. I did sell my Siegfried II to a friend because it fit her horse better than mine. I loved it too though.

                                My Roxane will have to be pried out of my cold, dead hands. I LOVE it!
