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!

  • Could you show in the A rated hunters in this show jacket?

    Bought this on ebay for a great price for DD who is showing mediums this year, as I wanted a comfortable and washable softshell show coat and couldn't afford the pricey "cool brand" ones, especially as she outgrows them every year. It arrived and it's gorgeous! BUT is it OK to show in the A rated hunters or would it be laughed at or considered too "jumper". Is it tacky?

    I'm personally not a slave to fashion and I think it looks lovely on her. She wears the "in" euroseat TS breeches and tall boots and a white shirt. If it were me personally I wouldn't care what anyone thought, but kids can be so mean. So I'm looking for other's opinions please

    This is the jacket and it's navy blue:

    Personal preference only, but I'd swap out the buttons for plain black or navy ones.

    If your daughter needs a little bit of bling to get noticed in a crowd of plain blue navy show coats on shiny bay horses it's just the thing!

      Unless she belongs to a hunt and has earned her colors of that hunt that just happen to be tan..... I wouldn't.

      I also believe that the brass buttons are something only masters of a hunt should wear, so I would not say that it's appropriate at all for a junior riding a pony.

        IMHO I say in the jumpers it is fine and they do look like a nice jacket but even swapping out the buttons I would give it a pass in the hunters.

          Personally, I wouldn't, but if your daughter and her pony are pretty flawless, she might be able to pull it off.

            I wouldn't.

            But for that price, I WOULD try to modify it. I'd swap out the buttons and have a seamstress replace the collar, or cover it with a similar navy fabric. The piping on the pockets wouldn't bother me very much if the rest was a little less exciting!

              Hey, that sounds like a great idea, never thought of that! I got it brand new for $65 and the quality and fabric are lovely...so maybe I'll find some buttons and see what can be done about the tan collar. Is the piping OK though? I thought piping was "in" now, or at least acceptable, with many of the softshell jackets? And aren't velvet type collars seen again now?

                I've seen some white piping of black coats in the big eq, and colored collars in the jumper ring, and I had a brown coat with blue piping, but I only wore it in the jumper ring.

                The new softshell jackets are definitely bringing in some "new" stuff even in the hunter ring, but I wouldn't personally go in the hunter ring with metal buttons and a contrasting collar.

                But if the buttons and collar were neutral I don't think I'd be very bothered with the little piping on the pockets.

                  Yea but you would also never see a ten year old wearing a shadbelly fox hunting -- and yet thats standard attire for classics. Hunter show ring does not really mirror field hunting.

                  The jacket doesn't bother me, imo. And if your DD puts in a strong round wearing that jacket I don't think it will affect her. BUT if she blows a lead or chips, she will be easily identifiable by the jacket. Personally I would have the collar covered with a navy material, but the buttons or the pockets don't stand out too much to me.

                    I actually quite like most of the jacket. The piping and the collar do not bother me, but I would certainly replace the big brass buttons.

                    The cream collared collar is no more distracting then huge bouncing bows...

                    Nice find.. share pics after you've done your modifications.

                      Great looking coat.

                      I love it. For what it's worth, I saw a hunter from WEF (circuit champion I think) wearing a coat with silver buttons and darker collar (same color though). I think it's only a matter of time before we start seeing these coats in the hunters. After all, in the 70's we all wore coats with gold buttons and velvet collars. They are coming back!

                        There is an entire IEA eq team that wears that coat... I personally love it. The tan collar, however, does kind of blend with the rider's shirt collar from further away, which can sometimes look a little odd. Just so you know

                          Personally I wouldn't change anything, either you embrace that style or not, changing the buttons would look weird with style of the jacket.

                          Does your daughter do equitation, if so I would save the jacket for those classes and find a more conservative one for the hunters, heck it was $65.

                          We have a great tack exchange here FYI, you might be able to call them and see what they have in your daughter size, very knowledgeable staff.

                            This is the first I've seen that there is a "Debbie Stephens" line, and now I am picturing a bunch of Debbie look a likes walking around (it really is modeled after her actual coat, not just a name).....how strange.

                            As for appropriateness.....I'm not really one to ask about the hunters, but I am leaning towards too flashy. But if she just rides in the hunters once in awhile (catch ride, eq didn't fill, young horse mileage or something to that effect) I probably wouldn't worry. If the hunters are her regular division, I would probably invest in the modifications or a second bargain coat.

                              And they all look ridiculous in them, especially combined with low rise breeches and flying stock ties (and garters).

                              Hunter ring attire doesn't mirror foxhunting, that's obvious enough, but it should respect it. It's disrespectful to wear colors of a hunt that you don't belong to or haven't earned.
