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!

    Aw, but he's ENTITLED TO! I have to say, if I earned a red coat (or hunt colors) I'd ALWAYS wear them. But again, only if I earned them (and impossibility for me, but I understand why someone who earns one is proud and wants to wear the coat).

      Crystals? zippered pockets ON THE CUFFS? To say nothing about having cuffs on a riding coat at all (but I just had to say it anyway).

      And, whats with the clown gloves?

      And why do I want to put both hands on the bottom of the coat and PULL it down another 3"?

      I have no animus against Animo. But I hope they are not successful in making their garmets popular.

      They seem to be extremely popular in Europe. I been watching the Global Championship Series and The Gucci Cup and many of the riders are wearing all kinds of Amino coats in all different colors. I also noticed that some of the female riders where their hair in a pony tail, not up in their helmet and none wear hairnets. Amino sponsors many riders too. My daughter was given a navy blue Animo coat by a client and she looks great in it. It seems like fashions in Europe seem to make their way to the US and Canada and start becoming popular. If I was the OP, I would sell it on Ebay in the UK or another European site. Or keep it and wear it for fashion and see if it becomes popular here. You never know.

        Animo was all over the shows up here this year........and my feeling: "for goodness sake even the skinny minnies (the only ones that actually fit into them) look like they were stuffed too tight in them". Blech.........jackets should flatter NOT make you look like you are being sliced up from them! They are also just way short.....they make my eyes bleed! And lets's not even get started on how expensive they are!

          My prediction-- this is going to be like the "bling" trend. Remember that year when EVERYONE had to put rhinestones down the strip of their GPA, bling up their cell phone, and wear a Kippy belt. And then a year or so later nobody would be caught dead within 10 feet of a sparkle? Yeah. I think this is the resurgance of the need-for-bling. I hope, personally, it dies a quick death. Those jackets are UNFLATTERING.

            Just to clarify, that rule applies to countries that use red jackets for such things. While I'm not sure a Dutch, Brazilian or French rider would wear red, it wouldn't mean they represented their country if they did.
            Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

              I'm guessing the Dutch don't have the problem of riders overusing the orange jackets Some colours are wearable... and some..

                I know this thread is about jumpers, but I remember way back when (70s, 80s) when red coats were fine in the Hunter Classics. Nobody wore shadbellies unless it was a really big show (indoors, etc), but red coats were 'in' for the big hunter classes. But then again, it was more like field hunters then.

                  Red coats in a hunter classic would still be fine, if it were being worn by a hunt member who'd earned their colors.

                  I've got a red riding coat, bought as a sample sale for a ridiculous steal. I bought it with absolutely no intention of ever wearing it on my horse, except perhaps for a holiday picture. I have, however, worn it to work and to Christmas dinner.

                        I think it looks like she forgot her coat at home and all anyone had was a little kid's sweatshirt so they said "oh hell" and in she went. It is WAY too tight, way too short, and way too small. And she's a slim person. I don't understand WHO thinks this LOOKS GOOD? In what universe?!

                          I've seen so many trends come and go over the years. This one will die too. On to the next!

                            Animo jackets do not flatter fuller figured girls but, even so, those girls still like to try and stuff themselves into the jackets for some reason. I don't know about any of you but I wouldn't be caught dead in the show ring with a muffin top bulging through my riding jacket.

                              The advantage to that coat is that if it's a foggy day, the sun is setting, and visibility is poor, the judge will still be able to pick you out in the gloom.

                                    There is a girl that wears a pink jacket it the pony jumpers. She also shows in th Child/Adult sometimes. At first it was something that made you look twice but honestly, she's neat and clean and not scary to watch so I don't even think about the color anymore.

                                        They don't flatter anyone, to be honest. That girl in the pink coat is a very slim, pretty looking girl and she looks like the jacket will need to be surgically removed?!
