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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • "Delicate" question

    Okay guys...warm weather is approaching and I'm picking your brains as to your favorite undies for the summer time for riding. I usually wear cotton thongs but I am a huge sweater...I sweat like a pig, and then they're soaked and disgusting. I also tend to get heat rash...ugh. Any recommendations? I've been recommended the Vanishing Edge undies at Soma but I don't have a Soma near me and am nervous to order online on one person's recommendation. Thanks!

    Summer is the worst isn't it
    Wear dark colored breeches or wear cotton undies with a liner to catch the sweat! Also try to wear LIGHTER breeches so that you aren't a living furnace

      It sure is the worst...although after the winter we've had, I'll take the heat. Haha. Do you have any breeches recommendations by chance? Ones that are a little better about hiding sweat?

        I actually like the soma underwear. The silicon edges keep them in place even if you sweat (... and I do a fair bit). The fabric is thin enough that they dry out quickly too. Those, paired with light weight riding tights, tend to be my best option to avoid chafing or heat rash in summer.

          No, I don't wear any tan breeches when I know I'm going to sweat, haha. If I'm showing and need tan breeches I'll wear a liner to make sure I don't sweat through other than that breeches that have silicon full seat can distract from the sweat.

            Ooh, good to know! They definitely looked intriguing and I'm glad to hear you like them. I might have to splurge and get a few pairs...

              Ugh, yes tan breeches and any other lighter color are the devil. I wore my beautiful light blue breeches on Sunday when it was only 70 degrees and sweated right through them. I have to say I usually gravitate towards black in the summer even though they're hotter, just because my sweat doesn't show through them as easily!

                While I don't have any suggestions on breeches or undies. I go thru about 5 bottles of Anti-Monkey Butt powder each summer.. I apply liberally. And while it may be too much TMI.. I found one summer i had to use some athletes foot cream )cheaper than the same exact ingredient in the women's vaginal creams ) to help with rashes in that area.

                  I have navy breeches that don't show any, also hunter green SmartPak Piper breeches (WHICH I LOVE!!!) honestly it's kind of just like a hit and miss thing, look for what you think would help! If you don't have the money for buying a ton of breeches (I'm sure we can all relate my mom often says out of all the sports and I had to choose the most expensive one!) I suggest using TackHunter, it's a secondhand equestrian app just like PoshMark! I LOVE IT!

                    I think I bought Anti-Monkey Butt about 6 or 7 years ago and never used it. Maybe I should give it a go...and thanks for the tip on athletes foot cream!

                        So I am a total sweater! I actually find that full bottom panties help at least catch some of the sweat. Also cotton, a little thicker, to really absorb. I have been known to still sweat through that, but that is usually X number of horses in and at that point I am glad to be wet because it creates a cool "breeze" as I ride I think of it as AC!!
                        Always be yourself. Unless you can be a unicorn. Then ALWAYS be a unicorn.

                          I am a sweater. I find it is best to spit test breeches (just soak a tiny corner of a waistband or something, preferably with a water bottle but spit works in a jam). I have some if all sorts of colors that show nothing.

                          I actually do this with all clothes because I had hyperhydrosis as a teen and I am very self conscious about it.

                          For panties, I stick with cotton...you can use your deodorant anywhere you tend to get heat rash, or something like runners' BodyGlide. It helps a lot.

                            Awesome tips, thank you. The spit test is an awesome idea.

                                I sweat a ton! I love the knixwear leakproof panties. I've worn the boyshorts under too tight whites and been completely confident. As a bonus, they are terrific period backup. Also pretty handy on Classic Sundays that are always ALWAYS during that time of the month.

                                  I have the same issue! I don't sweat THAT much, but I do chafe and get irritated down there very easily. My OBGYN told me that wearing normal cotton undies are my best bet, and she also told me to look into an anti-chafing gel by monistat that goes on like a gel but dries like a powder, if I find it I will let you know where to get it!

                                      As for the chafing, there is nothing better than Assos chamois cream. It's got a bit of a cooling effect (so, be careful where applied), antibacterial, etc. https://www.competitivecyclist.com/a...NDYXQxMDA0NDE=

                                      Can't say I have used it for riding horses, but it's a requirement when I'm on my bike.

                                      I'm not much help with the sweat part though.

                                        Assos chamois cream is so much better than Chamois Butt'r. I tried to include a link, but it got blocked. It's got minty cooling-ness to it, though, so be careful where you apply. It will help with chafing. I haven't used it riding horses, but it's a necessity when I'm on my bike. Can't say I have a solution for the sweat.
