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!

  • Uvex Helmets

    Does anyone know where to buy them in the US? Are they round or oval shaped? The sizes seem strange, they are S, M, L as opposed to head sizes, are they dial-a-fit?

  • #2
    My understanding is UVEX is working on the certifications for sales in the US. I am WAITING patiently to buy a new helmet from them because they make helmets with our logo but alas not available yet in the US.


    Here is their 2012 catalog. It explains fit and styles.

      The helmets have a little wheel in the back that makes them fit your head.

      Very nice and cool helmets but not as chic as a GPA or CO. But very comfy: I am not sure if you can wear them with hunter hair, since in Germany we don't do that

      Reitsport Schockemöhle offers them and i think they do ship to the US

        I think they look great.

        Isabell Werth had one in shiny gold to go with a new dressage outfit, and it looked really chic. They certainly don't look like a brain bucket.

          Oh, cool, this caught my attention. Uvex already sells ski helmets in this country....my son actually has 2 Uvex helmets that he uses for ski racing (one for GS, one for slalom). If the riding helmets are as nice as the ski helmets, may have to give them a try.

            Just bought mine from divoza with 20% off so pretty much covered shipping. Will let you know how it works out. I am using it for schooling and have a CO as a show helmet. I hope they get approved here soon. They seem to have gained a huge following in the UK recently from what I see on horse and hound.

              Helmet came in yesterday from the Netherlands. I picked up the uni vision model size XXS-S (my head size is around 53) it fits 53-55cm. I have to say its the most comfortable, best fitting helmet I have owned. I literally ran around with it fitted without snapping it closed and it would not fall off. I have had or have GPA air skin, CO (JR8/AYR), Tipp basic model and IRH. I loved the dial in the back as I got a custom fit and forgot riding I was wearing it. Great ventilation and super light. They claim they can fit ever head and i see why. As you move the dial the frame mold to the shape of your head. I wish I could legally compete in it sigh

                Just found this thread. I have an UVEX Helmet for two years now. Never ever had one as comfy, light, well fitting and I always have had issues to find fitting ones. I do not have one of those dressage modells that look more like the old helmets. I have also a vision one. You can even buy "winterears" to put on them. Love mine ! The difference between the models as far as I know are the cheaper the less comfortable - but safety is equal. (I am not sure if the carbon one is even safer, as that one was at that time to expansive for me).

                I can tell a bit about the story of them as it was told me:
                One of the managers in the department for motorcycle helmets what they produce for decades had a daughter who wanted to ride. Helmet was needed and he went to a tack shop with her. He did not really like what he saw. Discussed it with his boss and he was not really convinced to get into riding helmets.
                So this guy started to research nevertheless with some collegues. Bought helmets from all the brands available in germany and used the test equipement of the company. He presented the results to his boss and due to the fact they all were not following anything like the standars Uvex has for their helmets (Motorcycle and skiing e.g.) boss was persuaded to start a campaign to find out about business opportunities in the market of riding where they are not yet known in. Must have been good as you can buy now riding helmets by Uvex ;-)

                I have also one for Skiing and it is equally comfy, light etc. (And not understandable - much cheaper).

                  Very interesting. I kind of like the idea of vents that open and close for schooling. And I do love the blue! For those that have these, can you give us an idea on pricing? And shipping costs? TIA.

                    My Uvision with shipping from the Netherlands was 80 base usd plus 25 shipping total 105 usd (Divoza).

                    The FP3 is about 218 usd at the moment uvision is 109 usd both at divoza. They are running a 20% off one item promo right now code is on their site. I found with the code it basically paid for the shipping. Mine shipped FedEx took 4-5 days to reach me.

                      That's very reasonable. Thanks for the info!
