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!

  • Premier Equine Boots - Now in the US!

    Go SmartPak! I remember a thread from a month or so about these. I did a Google search, and, SmartPak Has them now! Check it out:

    http://www.smartpakequine.com/produc...ctClassid=9026

    Love the blue accents (my colors are navy and royal). Think I'll be picking a pair up given the positive reviews I have read here.

        Wow, thank you for posting this!!! I really wanted to buy their boots, but after a terrible experience with a purchase from Canada, I was reluctant to purchase from the UK. This is great!!!

        Thanks again .
        It is a fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

          I would not be reluctant to buy from Premiere UK. THey were great and got here much faster than I ever get stuff from SmartPak. I love smartpak but they take forever to ship to AZ!! The boots from Premiere came in 2 days while smartpak takes over a week. Plus they were about $35 less straight from Premiere to AZ. Might be different shipping to other places. They also come in white. They are great boots and I'm glad that SmartPak is now carrying them. At least they can be returned easily!!

            It might still be cheaper to order from the UK.

            And for people hesitant - I am one of 3 people in my area who bought them from the company, all came super fast (within a week).

              I need to find a really large pair of hind cross country boots. the tri zone large hind are too small for my Irish hunter. He is large boned but not draft type. Think old fashion warmblood type bone. the tri zones straps just barly catch. Are these truely large? Anyone???? Or does anyone know of boots that will fit? I have the old bit of britian galloping boots that just fit in front but would like something with ventilation if I can find it in his size. Thanks in advance.

                    They have blue too. But here is a trick (thanks to my Art Degree!) take some acrylic paint of whatever colour and poke it into the mesh with a stiff brush. If it fills the holes in, just blow through them to clear the paint. Voila, instant xc colours.

                      I saw the PE hinds and they are BIG. Like 16" long and just big. Someone had bought them for her 17h Conn/TB cross but realized he cant wear any hind boots at all because of an old scar that pops open when rubbed. She asked if I wanted them for my little TBx and they would have fit around his forearm.

                        Oooh, good idea Bob!!

                        I was hoping not to come across as too vain, but... my horse is a very loud appaloosa, so... bright colors are not necessarily a good thing on him

                          As far as sizing, would you go with a medium or large for a 16'3 TB? Right on the border for sizing.

                            If your horse takes regular horse sizing in other boots, medium. I just got medium for my 16h TBx and Im worried they are going to be too big (I havent tried them on yet).

                              Not vain, Im painting mine in black, I dont like blue. But its a great way to customize.

                                Thanks Bob! I'm gonna color mine in black! I have white ones. I bought larges for my 16.2 WB/TB who has decent sized bone. The hind larges are tall so I would measure your horse. They fit my horse perfectly.

                                      My fronts spinned the first time I think cuz they needed to break in a bit. I did put them a bit tighter the next day and they formed to his leg and stayed in place nicely

                                        It seems like the tighter I put them on, the more they spin. But Ill give them some time. Love the hinds though. Horse did not, at first.
