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!

  • Best Online Show Clothes Sites ~ Quality

    Needing new hunt coats in particular, quality. Prefer RJ Classics, Grand Prix, Marigold or others?? Dover just doesn't have much to offer IMHO. Where are some other great online English Tack Stores?

    TIA

      I like Tack Room Inc for RJ Classics as they usually have a far number on sale:

        I second Equus Now...not always a lot online, but I called in, the lady went and looked at all the Grand Prix jackets in my size and described them to me. I got a lovely new very-dark-navy with a subtle purple stripe for a screaming deal. I didn't get to see it first (but with monitors and photo quality, that's an issue with all on-line shopping anyway) but it was exactly what I was looking for, (picture below)

        and the customer service was great!!
        For schooling quality breeches, VTO has some good deals, but for show stuff, I go with Equus Now, Smartpak, or occassionally Dover. Farmhouse tack also has some nice stuff, though not the best deals.
        A good man can make you feel sexy, strong, and able to take on the world.... oh, sorry.... that's wine...wine does that...

            Hey guys!

            Thanks for the replies! I think I will try calling Equus Now & see what they may have. I have found some great deals from Robin Petix (collectiononlinestore.com), but I am really wanting a pretty black jacket in maybe a herringbone or vertical tone on tone or subtle pin stripe. I don't like any of the glitter type that Marigold does, but some of their more traditional fabrics are okay, but their prices....YIKES!

            It is rather amazing that there are not that many companies that make quality off the shelf jackets IMHO.

            I forgot about Tackroom. I need to check them out also. I frequent Ebay and have found some good deals for nice jackets there. I think I just need to set up another 'saved search'.

            I am friends with girl that now owns Stable Cloth & Winning Çouture. Her things are gorgeous, but I just don't want to spend that much money.

            Keep the suggestions coming!!

            Thanks!!

            Element Farm: pretty!!!

              Definitely check out The Collection Online. She has a lot of RJ coats at great prices and free shipping. I have ordered many items from her and have a very good experience. Have fun shopping!

                The Collection Online Store also just emailed last weekend about a sale. Coats are marked at 50-100 bucks.

                ETA...if you don't see what you want online, contact Robin. She worked a deal for me on a coat in her store that was not available through her website.

                Also, Farm House Tack just sent an email for the 12 Days of Christmas. Today's deal is Grand Prix coats starting at 50 dollars....but I think you have to call

                  Even if Farmhouse isn't having one of their fabulous sales, still try them. Nicest people on the face of the planet work there, and they have fabulous customer service. If you call them and give your sizes/brands, they will pull things in your size and even email/text pictures of the fabric if they aren't busy. They also have a pretty legit amount of inventory for a single brick-and-mortar tack shop.

                    Ditto this. I have 3 coats from farm house. The most recent is a gorgeous Grand Prix that was originally almost $500 and I bought it site unseen for $100. I imagine they would have sent a picture if I'd asked but it was worth it to me. Seriously the nicest people!

                      Thanks for the recommendations for our shop! We're in the process of liquidating our 2012 Hunt Coats to make room for the 2013 models arriving in a few month. Give Tracy Baker a call in our Retail Store -
                      740-549-4959 - she can walk you thru a great selection over the phone - WAY more that what's on our web site.
