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.

  • Show me your barn jackets!

    A friend of mine has asked me to help her find some nice looking jackets with her barn name and logo for her clients.

    I got the ones for my barn through the same company that did another local farm's jackets. However the jackets we have are fleece, and while they are great looking, she doesn't want to use fleece. (I understand her - the fleece attracts everything!)

    So what types of jackets does everyone like? Do you have pictures of your own jacket or links to where you got them?

    The jackets we have for my farm are really nice. They are similar to many running type jackets and are great when riding as they really wick the sweat. They are made by "stormtec" or "stormtech" (not sure if the h is there...).
    We all love them!
    Below is a pic, excuse the goofy faces, it was Christmas morning a few years ago!

      We have these from Boathouse for the equestrian team. I looove them, they're pretty warm and dirt usually brushes right off them. A few bones to pick though, the toggles at the bottom can get in the way when riding and the rollaway hood is pretty useless-too flimsy to stay open in the rain and too lightweight to provide any warmth.

        We got ours from Mona's - they have a mobile shop that goes to some of our bigger local shows.

        They are a soft shell material that is very comfortable to ride in; the embroidery looks great and they have held up nicely.


        To see the exact jacket, click on the Jacket Catalog link, then jackets, then the bonded soft shell category. We chose model 6420, the Ascent if the link doesn't take you right there. They were about $100 each including the barn logo, individual names embroidered, and shipping.

          I have a NorthFace Apex Bionic jacket and it is great. The horse hair and dust/dirt come right off and it is easy to ride in and very warm. In the past I've ordered them and then taken them to an embroiderer to get names, etc put on them. They are great!

          Sometimes you can find them from other distributors for a slightly lower price. I love mine!

            Thanks guys! I hadn't thought of an athletic type jacket. I also love the soft shell type jackets (i have one for a non-barn jacket). How well do those jackets monogram?

              The soft shell jackets we got turned out beautifully with the monograms. In fact, I have a couple - Mona's has done the "signature" soft shell jackets for the New England finals for several years, and that was how we came to choose them for the barn jackets. Both of mine are really nice.

                We just did new barn jackets for myself and all of my students for Christmas. I got them through Katrina at The Clothes Horse. The actual jackets are a NorthFace-type soft shell jacket in black and grey, made by Port Authority.

                This may or may not be a link to a picture of the jacket - I can't find the right one on the actual P.A. site now. http://www.leadapparel.com/servlet/t...Apparel/Detail

                They took embroidery very well and have proven to be very warm, especially if you layer with them, even though they are very thin and great for riding. Here is a picture of the back of our jackets: http://pets.webshots.com/photo/25820...53076870HsNihR

                  I have 3 different jackets for 3 different barns. My favorite is the letterman style leather and wool that only comes out for horse shows. That barn also sells a cheaper 3 season style at a lot less cost. But i LOVE my letterman. (Naturally I am no longer riding at this barn)

                  I'll add pictures tonight if I remember! Its lovely dark dark green leather with dark dark green wool with grey writing/accents. The back embroidery has jumping and dressage horses.

                    The barn I'm at gets all their jackets from Charles River Apparel. Sorry I don't have pics, but here's the link to the jackets:


                    They've got the barn logo on the back and the rider's name on the front... very good quality, super super super warm, waterproof, and don't really attract dust. My favorite bit is the pockets- they're lined with the same fleece as the interior, so extra warm!

                      Blackcat - that's actually where my barn got the fleece jackets. I didn't have the best experience though so I am hesitant to work with them again.

                      Pirateer - that's funny you still have one of those letterman jackets. I still have mine from my barn in high school. I thought I'd look like a loser if I wore it now. Maybe they're coming back in style?

                      I'm really liking everyone's suggestions.
                      Thanks so much!!!

                        I just got my barn jacket, it's black and white, combo poly fill/soft shell so it stretches on the sides and around the shoulders. The embroidery is in the barn colors, with the barn name, obviously I love it, super cute and functional!
