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!

  • Jumper Riders: What to wear in the cold?

    I'm heading to an AA tomorrow and am showing in Children's. What is appropriate to wear in the colder weather? I've been just wearing a neat polo, but now that it's chilly I'm not sure what's "in" to wear. Should I just stick with show coat and shirt? Or a sweater? Thanks in advance.

    Can't go wrong with show coat and shirt, especially for AA

    Alternative would be a nice Vneck Sweater over a polo.

      I agree with the coat suggestion. I think it looks classy and professional. In a lower level like the childrens you would be more then okay with a nicely fitted sweater or even a clean fitted black(my personal preference) zip-up jacket
      Spend so much time improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others.

        I'd go with coat and shirt and wear a layer underneath. They make all kinds of warm, yet light, underwear these days. Have fun!

          Thanks for the suggestions! I'll bring both and just see how I feel when we get there. Thanks again!

            I wear a long sleeved polo with a layer of underamour underneath. I don't like the bulkiness of sweaters or jackets when I ride, especially for jumpers. Its a two minutes round, and I always get super hot once we start going.

              I love the look of a v-neck sweater with a polo or button down shirt underneath. Darker colors may look better than a light color, but that's what I prefer to ride in. Then again, if I was showing I would probably wimp out and wear a show jacket. ;-) good luck!

                I like wearing a sweater over a button down shirt (hate the feel of longsleeved polos, so button downs are my go-to for sleeves!) or a show coat and show shirt. I don't like bringing out the coat and shirt except for money classes or (obviously) hunters and eq, but that's just me.

                  That's me, too. I have a couple of closer fitting/tailored looking wool sweaters that I wear. I wear a turtleneck underneath, I've worn button downs too, but they look lumpy/bunchy under sweaters for me.

                    Not to change the course of the tread to terrible but I also have a Jumper show coming up. It’s unaffiliated with anything, i.e. VHSA, etc. So I guess it’s more or less a schooling type show. I plan on wearing my show shirt and coat for the money class, but for the other classes (2'6 and 3ft) I was originally planning on wearing a turtle neck with a black vest...is that inappropriate?

                      I think that's completely appropriate!

                          Blast, i was wearing that combo today, Shoulda taken a picture.
                          Red vneck sweater over a white Oxford shirt, with black breeches. Love the layers and button down shirts always look respectable.

                            Sorry if this is a dumb question but.....

                            During the summer, I always wear a polo shirt, tucked into my breeches (side zip) with a belt. During the winter, I am almost always in a long sleeve polo/oxford shirt with v-neck sweater. Only problem is- you can't wear a belt with this combo as it would just be way too bulky to tuck in the sweater. Does this bother anyone else? I guess I just feel naked without the belt?

                            Also, any other cold weather ideas that are tidy and neat?? (I ride hunters/eq and like to look nice for lessons) I also occasionally do a black down vest over a long sleeve fitted t-shirt. I also saw a sweater vest over an oxford recently and really liked that look. Please, keep the suggestions coming! And pictures would be wonderful

                              Tuck in the shirt, put on a belt, sweater over. Always wear a belt.

                                Well for schooling what about a long sleeve shirt and a puffy coat or fleece? That way you keep the level of bulk down! And huntereq what about not tucking the sweater? Thats what I do, and other people do, and we still were the belts.

                                  Thanks for the suggestions!

                                  I guess my problem is that if I put on the polo, then a belt, and a sweater over- the bottom of the sweater would be sitting right on top of my belt and there would be a big bump all the way around my waist. Maybe this is because I am very short waisted? If it helps, the breeches are either TS or Ariat Pro Circuits or Olympia. These are all "low rise" breeches, but fit more like a mid rise on me. (I am also built straight up and down; no real hips to speak of) I definitely think you should always wear a belt! I just wish it didn't look so bulky on me. Maybe I am doing something wrong.....

                                    When I do the sweater over the polo look I wear high rise Ariat Pro Circuits so that there is no need for a belt, and the look is a little neater.

                                        This is my favorite sweater vest (for TheJenners):

                                        http://pets.webshots.com/photo/21173...94686761EeTtsu

                                        And there are lots of sweater photos in that album. Probably more than coat photos

                                        I only wear a belt if it's a thicker sweater.
