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!

  • One K helmets?

    Wow. There's going to something more expensive than a GPA??
    One thousand bucks for a helmet? Just wow.

    I guess I will never understand the hunter fetish with helmet and breeches brands.

      I personally wouldn't wear one, but I still only wear the classic GPA. The price is totally unappealing too.

      edit: okay just looked on the fb page, they only cost 279... last time I checked that is less then a GPA

              Hmm... Maybe I would have to try it on/see it in person, but I'm not hating it from the pictures. the built-in sunglasses are a little... odd. Other than that I think it's growing on me the more I look at it.

                I'm guessing that some time back in the 90's some BNT forgot their show helmet and had to ride in their schooling helmet, and started a trend... now everyone rides in ugly plastic schooling helmets at shows... The One K witht the built in glasses/face sheild looks like a blue storm trooper...

                  I was just making a joke about the name of the helmet being "One K".

                  Lol - Didn't even notice the sunglasses.

                    I actually rather like the look of them... The sunglasses thing is a bit odd, but the normal one looks cool.

                      I saw them at a local store, and they're nto bad looking, if you like that style of helmet. The sunglasses wouldn't be my choice, though. I think they'd be great at being in the wrong place a lot.

                        They fit great!! Me anyway. I found them to be very comfy, secure without being overly tight and very lite weight. I rather like the styling of most of them. One is quite a bit too shiny for my likes and the one with the sunshield was too radical til I tried it on. You can't even tell that it's there when up, then a touch on one side brings it down with no interference whatsoever. I actually thought it was pretty cool! Much better than those wide brimmed sunvisors for the intense Florida sun! Definitely one for Wellington and the bright sand! And, as helmets go these day, the price is reasonable.

                          They are super comfortable! I tried the matte black one, very traditional looking as far as a tech helmet goes. Lightweight, good fit on my head, which can be difficult.

                          I have no need for the sun shield, but I can totally see their usefulness in places like Wellington - or the clear one for someone who gallops/conditions outside - I hate when my eyes are streaming down my cheeks from the wind!

                            I could see the ones with the sunglasses built right in a plus.

                            I ALWAYS ride outside with sunglasses on when it is sunny to protect my eyes, and it would be convienant to have it right on the helmet, instead of remembering my riding sunglasses in the car.

                            Not to mention, if I am out (and actually able to be mounted at a hunt), the clear glasses would come in handy, protecting the eyes against branches in the woods, plus dirt coming up from the horse in front of you.

                              Unless something goes horribly wrong and the glasses shatter into your eyeballs..... I often think about the dangers of wearing glasses when I ride and what could possibly happen LOL



                              Which leads me into thinking... what if you wear glasses? Is it like going to a 3D movie where everything is awkward because you literally have to wear two pairs on the bridge of your nose?

                                Exactly, I have very sun-sensitive eyes, and I wear glasses (transition lenses that I wear all the time), as my eyes can't handle contacts. It's a cute helmet, though, without the eye shield. Where are you guys seeing the price?

                                  I've used this answer before to a similar topic, but I am going to pull it out again.

                                  I don't know about you, but I always try to avoid landing on my face if I fall off.


                                  Not to mention, when I wore glasses (now wear contacts), I took some pretty good hits to the face with basketballs and horse heads, and never had a problem with the glass breaking. If anything, they bridge of the glasses would dig into my nose, and tear a small piece of skin...

                                    The other day, I finally saw this helmet in person this weekend. I tried it on and it was the most comfortable helmet I have ever tried. I would need the extra large (at least) to fit all my hair in, but it was SO COMFORTABLE. I actually didn't hate the way it looked, either. The sunglasses made me giggle. A lot. But I can see them being convenient and they aren't in the way if you don't want to use them. I tried on the velvet one, but I would definitely get it in one of the matte colors if I were to get one. It's a lot better than I thought it would be and the price isn't bad, either!

                                      Thanks for the update! I don't get it with the sunglasses though - where do they store when not in use? Do they bug you at all and would they interfere with a hair net or crack on your head in a fall?

                                        I also tried it on too, and I really love the fit. I also need a XXL, but it was really comfy and lightweight.

                                        The built in sunglasses come out when you push on like the edge and then you push them back it. Its really neat, but I do have to say when the sunglasses came out they hit my nose really hard, but other then that they are great!
