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!

  • style but yet organized?

    I don't know if i'm weird but when I lesson I have to have my hair up in a net (even for hacking) and I have to wear tall boots. I also always wear breeches (never jeans), a belt and a polo (occasionally a sweater). I was wondering if you could help me organize what should go with what.
    I currently have:
    Purple polo
    White polo
    Yellow polo
    Navy Polo
    Black polo
    Charcoal and Blue Sweater
    French Blue Breeches (worn with a white belt)
    Dark Olive Breeches (help me pick out a belt color)
    Espresso Breeches (worn with a red belt)
    Beige Breeches (worn with a black or brown belt)
    Which Polo colors would go best with which color breeches?

            Save this sort of trivial topic for the Off-Course forum, because honestly, this is irrelevant.

              Lighten up you guys, you know you were dying to hear the contents of someone's clothes closet.

              Neat and tidy is a lifestyle. Wear your hair net. (Purple polo?)

                Without putting too much thought into it...

                I love a pop of color.

                So pair a pop of color - breech, polo, sweater, belt - with more neutral options.

                  If you can manage to dress yourself for work/school/whatever each morning then surely you can figure out what color polo to wear? Its not rocket science, neat, clean and conservative always works.

                        This is very, very serious business you guys.

                        OP, these are the keys to the look you seek. And they are in order. I'll omit the irrelevant stuff-- right brand of saddle, right horse and whether or not you can ride.

                        1) Hunter hair. Learn to do it with or without a mirror. Must be contained, must be symmetrical, must the trim over your ears. Figure out whether you are into earrings with that or not. It may be seasonal.

                        2) Clean leather and clothing. In theory, boots match belt color. That's a 1940s rule from shoes-n-handbags. Ignore it at your peril.

                        3) Belts are the horseman's jewelry. Don't skimp here. You can wear a $300 belt. They make $1,000+ belts. Good leather, sterling if you meant to have silver. You can also do needlepoint or ribbon or bling or whatever. Just think "take no prisoners"-- get the best quality version of the style you want and wear it without apology.

                        Colors of belts, breeches and shirts. The white belt? Only with a white polo and light breeches. Otherwise, I think you are doing Rodney Dangerfield in Caddyshack. The other breeches-- versions of khaki are, well, the khakis of the work place. They are neutral. You can where whatever color with those that goes with the shirt.

                        But if you wear a cheesy, dry-looking belt and do bad hair, I'll be coming for you.

                          I am with the other, I don't know 5 posters...seriously? Just wear whatever you have.

                          Riding isn't a fashion show.

                          I worry more about what my horse looks like then what I look like.

                          Though I do agree with MVP, bad hairnet is the worst thing ever.

                                Unfortunately, there are people out there who have no sense of color mix/matching out there. There is one person in my life, out of hundreds, who can make my eyes bleed. She really needs help, but won't take it. Maybe the OP is like her, but knows she could use some help. Hence, not purchasing clothing as coherent outfits. Help her. It could be a public service .

                                  I think as long as everything is clean, neat, and you aren't wearing bright colors you are okay.... And if you have to ask what color shirt to wear with your pants then I don't think you should be wearing bright polos and colored pants... maybe just stick to tan.

                                        and by clean you mean, pick it up off the floor and see if it passes the smell test right?
