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!

  • Best/Favorite Gloves

    Okay, so tell me what your favorite gloves are? Why? How long do they last? I am mainly talking about every day use.

    I am in the market for a new pair. I have always used SSG, or moutain horse in the past, just the crochet gloves. They last for a little bit, but I hate breaking them in.

    I know people love the Roeckl Gloves. Are they really worth the money?

    Thanks!
    I love cats, I love every single cat....
    So anyway I am a cat lover
    And I love to run.

      My trainer has the roeckl gloves and they are niiiice.

      I have the SSG hybrids though and I love them. They breath, they're comfortable, cheap.

        Love the Roeckl gloves. The feel is great, they seem to last a lot longer than other gloves I have worn. They come in sizes versus S, M, Large so I can get a good fit. Give them a try - you can sometimes find them on eBay or other on line vendors for a tad less money.

          Personally a fan of the heritage gloves! Similar quality to roeckel (spelling?) but not as nice. I have had mine for about ayear and a hlaf now? (show us only, showing about every weekend, but they hav held up wonderfully. Many choices. Check them out!

            I buy a cheap pair of soft, yellow, deerskin gloves from the farm store. I have a hard time finding them because I wear XXS and we don't really have a farm store here in AZ so whenever we drive through TX or OK I always have to stop and buy about four pair. They are very sturdy and last about a year.
            I've tried the white colored, thinner ones but they fall apart fast. Plus, butter colored is traditional for fox hunting so I can even wear these on hunt days, just so I don't wear my grundgy pair.

              They might be similar to the SSG gloves but I pay about $10 a pair.

                They are really comfortable, easy to wash, and I use mine a LOT. They actually come in sizes too, which I liked. They are a good glove for the money.

                  I had a pair of Heritage gloves that I loved but they wore out after a few months a riding, and my second pair was stolen! (I don't know why someone would steal gloves of all things, but...). I had a pair of SSG's but they wore out in less than a month! I recently bought a pair of Ariat gloves and I love them! They're holding up very nicely, feel great, and look nice. I'm not sure what model they are but they have suede on the bottom and a stretchy material on the top. I hate bulky gloves and these are thick enough to protect my hands, but thin enough to still feel the reins well. I've heard the Roeckl gloves are really nice!

                    I like the Heritage crochet back gloves. They don't last forever, but long enough for being around $15. They keep my hands from getting disgusting and sweaty in the hot summers, and they don't turn my hands black like my nicer gloves do (I think they are Stuben?).

                      I LOVE my Ovation crochet-backed gloves. They last for a good amount of time, but when they get dirty DO NOT try to wash them. That's just a bad idea that I took upon myself to try haha.

                        I also have Roeckls. One thing not mentioned yet is that they are washable. Maybe some of the others are too. I like having clean gloves on a regular basis. If I wash them in the early evening and lay them out to dry, they are good to go the next a.m.

                          I don't like anything with an obvious logo and I find a lot of those Heritage ones have their big, obvious, gold H on theirs.

                          These are my favorites - Ariat Pro Contact Gloves:

                                Roeckl's! They make a winter show glove as well. I work at a tack shop and we sell and get more requests for them over any other glove. They wear great and are worth the extra expense, once you try them on you'll see what we're all talking about!

                                  I just went glove shopping today! I have Roeckls or Ariat for my show gloves but everyday ones have typically been one of the Heritage kinds. I came across Tredstep gloves today that I thought I'd try since they were sold out of the others. They seem super grippy and comfy. I'm not sure if they're washable?? They had a "show hunter" model which was nice but more leather than I wanted so I got the "pro-jumper" model. They seem to run a little small though since I needed a 7.5 and I'm consistently a 7 in other brands. I'll try them for the first time this week!!!

                                    I just got the Tredstep "Show Hunter" model for horse shows and LOVE them. Once my Roeckls die I'm going to try the Pro jumper ones. As much as I love the Roeckls, they aren't terribly durable and I usually end up buying two pairs a year....

                                      I have a few ssgs and just got a pair of the roeckl chesters. I really like the feel of them but they have stretched out alot. When I replace them I think I will go down a size...

                                        Tailored sportsman makes a crocheted back glove that are just wonderful. I have several pairs and all of them are holding up superbly. Super soft leather and they fit so so nice. I don't see them in the stores too often but when I do I always buy a pair. Even though I am still on the first pair which I bought 2 years ago.
