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!

  • Spinoff--Eventing XC Shirt-What do you want?

    From the other thread about the armband--if you could design a XC shirt, what would you like it to have?

    So far:

    Long sleeve version (lightweight)
    Short Sleeve (lightweight)
    Long Sleeve (heavier weight)
    Collar for Stadium Wear acceptibility in case of pulled coats
    Built in attachment for Arm Band
    Access to watch through sleeve
    Athletic material (coolmax type)
    Available in solid color with stripe (add your input here--would you want more design options??)

    Thanks!

    I don't really want or need to see my watch through my shirt. If I wear long sleeves I put my watch over my sleeve. I would be happy to have solid with a stripe or maybe some custom embroidery on the top of the sleeve. I LOVE the idea of a built in pocket for my medical info. Now, can you do it and make it affordable? I find it hard to think that I would but a shirt for more than $50, but I am a real cheapskate.

      I'm in Area I, so it's pretty warm for all the events I do. I would want:

      Collar (I like to pull it up through the vest--think it looks better that way
      Not too long so I can tuck it into my breeches without any major bulk
      short sleeve version, but almost down to elbows so armband can fit over it
      I also like 3/4 sleeve shirts for the fall/cooler events. Don't like long sleeve.
      Don't really want/need something to attach the armband to.

        Would love some options that might match helmet covers or other such as color blocks, chevrons on the sleeve, stars, etc. You might look here for some ideas:

        I know you wouldn't be able to do everything, but maybe the shirts come several designs and you could just add the eventing specific features

          Pocket for armband

          3/4 sleeve option

          Don't care about color on the 'body' of the shirt because the vest covers it up, but something fun on the sleeves would be good

          No zippers or buttons to annoy me

            Being the fashion maven that I am, I just want something that doesn't rub under a vest, isn't so long that I have to sit on it and most importantly, covers my fish belly pale belly.

            I usually wear one of my long sleeved t-shirts if it is cold, the actually collared shirt I have for a x/c shirt is too stiff.

              What about a short zipper for the neck collar? Or would a pull over be OK?
              thanks everyone...love the 3/4 sleeve, love it!

                I'd rather the pull over with an open collar (like polo shirt collar without the buttons)

                  Short sleeve must be long enough that the armband does not touch skin.

                  A quarter zip neck might be nice!

                      oh, yeah, my "midweight" one is a 3/4 sleeve and I love it too!!! My short sleeve one is actually a bit short and sometimes the nasty armband thing ends up on my bare arm, boo.

                        Yes, like a polo without buttons for me--zippers always stick me under my vest.

                          I don't like polo shirt collars - they look funny and get smushed in the vest. Mock T Neck? 1/4 Zip neck? Something I have not thought of?

                            Ditto. I would love the idea of a 3/4 sleeve, 1/4 zip (or mock turtleneck) shirt. I don't require fun colors (I go in black, except for helmet cover) but I think it would look cool to have some

                              i think a 3/4 sleeve would be ideal. i would like it to be "wicking" material, so as to not hold sweat. also, ideally it would be cool in the summer, and warm in the winter. conservative colors are a must.

                                Slightly OT but don't any of you wear your armband on the top of your boot? Or is that not allowed in the US?

                                  Not allowed in US and hopefully not to be allowed in Canada either. The paramedics are pushing very hard for a rule change. In fact, Woody was requesting at all events he worked this summer that riders moved their arm band to their arm. I asked every single rider when I was xc stewart at Grandview in may to switch to armband as per paramedic request.

                                    Huh, I was lame this season. So it's Woody's fault! I like it on the boot.

                                    My Rodney Powell came with those stupid shoulder pads and they had a holder.....never wear them. I had the idea though that maybe if it was part of your vest it would be cool. Something like a Road ID (http://www.roadid.com/Common/products.aspx) type of thing.

                                    Or to stay on topic....somehow part of your shirt.

                                      What about instead of a full holder for the medical card, just a loop on the underside of the sleeve to run the armband through if you want? That way the dam armband doesn't slide down your arm. If it isn't too bulky it shouldn't bug those that don't use it.

                                        I hate those velcro armband straps and have a way to get rid of them entirely, but still use the same pocket (it is somewhat water resistant).

                                        If you could have a 3/4 sleeve or a short sleeve, would you have both or which one?

                                        Thanks for all the good feedback.
