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!

  • How do you carry your phone when you ride?

    As the title says, how do you guys carry your phone on you when you ride (if you do carry it with you). I hack out a lot alone and am looking for a solution. Does anyone have one of their wristlets from Black Knight Accessories that slides on your belt? Trying to figure out if it'd fit an iPhone 7 Plus, and if they're worth the money. Thanks!

    I have a pair of noble outfitter riding tights. I was always trying to come up with some way to bring my phone (which is also and iPhone 7Plus).

    I plan to get multiple of these. they are comfy and they fit my iphone like a glove. it doesnt feel heavy or awkward or anything in the side pocket

      I have something similar to this:
      https://www.amazon.com/Water-resista...nd+for+running

      It's meant to be worn around your arm, but it is large enough that I actually strap it around my boot. I figure that's a safer spot for it in case of a fall, not likely to hurt myself on it that way. It's neoprene so it doesn't slip around, even jumping. I'd thought about getting one that clips to my belt, but falling on that the wrong way could be very painful, I'd think!

        Oh yeah, forgot about those! I also have a pair of Kerrits riding tights that have a cell phone pocket on the side, but again, I'd be worried of landing on it wrong :/

          I bought a phone case that clips on my belt. I like to have my phone on me when I ride - habit from riding alone most of the time for a few years.

          Here's the one I bought, for reference: https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B07...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

          I have a Samsung J3, but the same company sells cases for other models.
          I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

            I have a couple of pairs of these, these are what I wear for trail riding.
            I have tried other things but as previously mentioned it always seemed to put the phone in a place that would make it painful in a fall.
            These tights put the phone in the fleshy part of my thigh, so hopefully it won't hurt anything if I come off!

              I ordered the Black Knight wristlet, but it didn't fit my Nexus 6P, so doubt it would fit an iPhone 7 plus. It was super pretty, too, I was bummed.

              I found a belt clip for my phone on Amazon, its just a faux leather sleeve with a flap top, so it's somewhat easily accessible. I carry mine on me because we have a toddler at home, and if something happened to him while I was out, I'd want to know ASAP.

                I just messaged Black Knight on Instagram and apparently their "Grand Prix" size wristlet will fit the bigger phones, but not the regular wristlet. Just FYI if you wanted to try again

                  I have the Grand Prix Size and it fits a normal iPhone and an epipen - it would definitely accommodate the 7 plus! I highly recommend it. I've gotten a few for friends and they all love them. It's multi-purpose for riding, and when you need a small clutch for running to Starbucks or the grocer.

                    I use a simple runners belt. It is very stretchy so I think would fit almost any size phone all while holding it snug to my body so it does not wiggle around as I ride.

                      I use the Nite Ize sideways belt clip. It fits my iPhone 6 S plus perfectly. Here's a link to the one I have: https://www.basspro.com/shop/en/nite...ductextensions

                        I have a iPhone 6sPlus, and used a OtterBox defender with the holster belt clip. If I fell, the Defender case, in theory, would keep my phone safe so I could call for help if I needed and having it on my belt made is easy to reach for. I am pretty sure that the holster clip will fit any OtterBox case though because you can buy it separately.

                          Those of you who have the wristlet - do you worry about injuring your back by landing on your phone? Or even breaking it by landing on it (in the event of a fall)? I seem to always land on my back but I love those wristlets.

                            I always land on my back too, so curious about this as well!

                              My husband has one of these...I might have to give it a try!

                                I do the same thing. My otterbox has saved my phone from many a barn casualty (although I can't remember if I've fallen with it on yet). I just clip it to the back of my belt and never really notice it's there. I used to wear tights with the pockets on the front but that got annoying after a while.

                                I'd definitely suggest the otterbox/clip combo. Or really any option that allows you to clip/attach to your belt.

                                  Has anyone tried the Flip Belt? I saw it recommended on COTH a couple years ago and want to get one... just never got around to it. I don't like the thought of clipping something onto a belt because schooling tights don't necessarily have belt loops and if they do I find that phones on clips are heavy enough that it can make schooling tights droop. I also go hiking and those shorts don't have belts for a phone clip so I'm seriously considering a Flip Belt with the zipper option (or something similar that lays flat just like it does).

                                    Most Flip Belts are a little smaller. I can use mine for my old phone/ipod, but not my Galaxy Edge. Now I use the Etronic waist belt. It has a larger compartment for the phone. I don't always love carrying a phone while riding, but when I use the Equilab program, I need to. I actually have the phone in front of me, not in back (in case of a fall). https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07CMJ19DB...d_i=B07CMJ19DB

                                    I do still like my Flip Belt for walking/hiking/theme parks, etc.

                                      I have the same armband type thing as SugarCubes. I greatly prefer it to the belt clips. Some of my breeches have large enough front pockets that I just put it in my pocket, but if not, I use the arm band.

                                        Hm. It says it fits some pretty big phones including the edge (which is a bit bigger than mine which is an 8 active). That is disappointing if it doesn't. I like how flat it appears to be. I am a creature of comfort and really don't like the feeling of any bulk -- so I just don't carry a phone on me which probably isn't the smartest as I 99% of the time ride alone.

                                        For those with the arm band you wear on your leg do you notice it at all while riding or is it pretty comfortable?
