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.

  • Hunt Show Shirts

    Ok, I am pretty new to the Hunter ring & was wondering do people still wear hunt pens on their shirts? Or monograming? I was thinking about ordering one of those new wrap collars & I'm not sure what it would look like with a monogram on it the way they are designed.

  • #2
    Some people still monogram, but it is mostly just pony kids and some juniors. No one wears a pin anymore.


    • #3
      I would say with the wrap shirts monogramming is less frequently seen, although I know they can monogram them. The ones I have seen look very nice in my opinion, but I'm a bit old school I suppose.

      If you are doing a traditional shirt with a choker, definitely get it monogrammed.

      And I was always told no pins!

        I don't really *love* the whole wrap collar shirt but I do love the new technical fabrics and sometimes they only come in wrap collar. So I have a few. I do monogram the wrap collar (I love monogramming and don't turn down an opportunity!)...

          vxf111, thank you so much for posting those pictures that was awesome.

            I still wear a gold stock tie pin. Call me old fashioned, but its traditional (and none of my new shirts have been monogrammed yet!).


            • #7
              I have mostly traditional collar and choker shirts, none of which are monogrammed. I just wear them plain.

              No monogram necessary!
              I almost like it more without the monogram.

              It's personal preference, of course. I don't like the wrap collar shirts at all, but I know I'm in the minority there. I haven't seen pins on collars (other than with stock ties) in a long, long time.

                Another vote for the traditional shirt with choker -- monogrammed or not

                  I'm curious about the new wrap collar shirts and the cool max fabric. I've seen on here in other posts that people say their man made fabric shirts get smelly when you sweat liters on a hot day. Call me old fashioned, but I prefer a starched cotton shirt with a collar, monogrammed or not. But I seems to me that no one is wearing striped shirts or dark colors anymore. Is this trend of a white shirt started because until just recently "cool max" came in white or very pale pastels? And what's with the short sleeved shirts? Where is the shirt's cuff peeking out of the perfect length jacket?

                  I'm just wondering if this a fad or here to stay. I remember everyone saying the shirts with collars were a fad, as we sweat liters in long sleeved white shirts with a stock tie held with a pin!

                    We have pretty much abandoned all colors and monograms (we are in the regular pony ring). Rather dull I realize but certainly classic.


                    • #11
                      I really do not like the coolmax fabric! I find it more uncomfortable on a hot day. My favorite shirt is made of some heavy kind of cotton but it is so much cooler feeling and easier to peel off at the end of the day!

                        Same here. We only have white or very pale blue wrap collar shirts these days for the adult hunter ring and obviously for the adult eq. I will say that my daughters IHSA team still does the mono collar with the team logo, but they are looking into moving towards the wrap collars with the mono.

                          For me, under a hunt coat, I find the technical fabrics are a bit cooler but I am also happy in a nice cotton shirt. The key is LONG SLEEVE in either event.

                          Walking around before/after I show with the coat off-- I think the technical fabrics feel cooler and they LOOK much better/less obviously sweat soaked. The Romfh shirt especially is the bee's knees because the whole under part of the arm is mesh fabric, so it REALLY breathes.

                            I am so lazy. I never remember to get my shirts monogrammed. Therefore, if they come with monograms (I tend to pick them up for $5-10 each at the tack exchange (not bad for $10!) then awesome, if they don't, oh well.

                            I'm not a huge fan of the stock pin, though.

                              I'm completely out of fashion and don't really care. I HATE white shirts and I dont' really like plain colored shirts either. I want something iwth some interest, a stripe, a check, a pattern of some sort. But the pattern can't be too obnoxious.

                              And I love me a monogram even though I have the worst initials in the world for them. The two bottom collars are my favorite shirts. The blue with rust is for when I wear rust breeches (Oh my!) and the yellow is actually my favorite monogram of the bunch.

                              I have one wrap collar and it is nice not to have to keep track of a choker. I don't like the color of it though, so haven't really contemplated having it monogrammed as I'm sure I will get rid of it soon. It was suppose to be pink but it's a weird blush color that is blah. The cuffs and inside of the collar are a nice pink and they clash with the actual color of the shirt. Oh well...it was cheap.

                                I still love the monogrammed traditional collars, and vfx111 - your wrap collar monograms are beautiful and classy as well!

                                When I was a junior I used to never get my initials monogrammed - I had a pale yellow shirt with a daffodil and a pale pink shirt with a strawberry and a blue plaid one with my astrology sign. I *still* think that was cool, but maybe I'm just a nerd. I even had a "winter" coral-ish colored shirt with a teeny dragon on it. I wish I still had them!
