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!

    So many American and International riders are sponsored by Amino. I doubt the coats will be gone soon.

          GPA is still in vogue though.

            I have this one. Its lovely, I use it for dressage. They don't make it anymore. I bought mine at WEG 2010. It seems like their jackets have gotten more radical year by year. The first line they released was more traditional but glamorous. Now some of them are just way out there and don't look formal enough to compete it.

              I think the Pink coat is adorable!

              Then again, I have switched to eventing.

                I agree, in the beginning, some of their jackets were nice and normal looking, and definitely not nearly this short. I mean they were still sort of different, but not this out there.

                  I find that their "new direction" is kind of a let down. I have a really hard time finding jackets because I am short and petite so when I found the jacket at WEG I was in love. But now, I don't know if I will buy another one that isn't close to formal. I wish they still made them with pockets. I will never buy a jacket that isn't navy, grey, or black. I also do eventing but the dressage portion is very formal so why on earth anyone would wear one that looks like a sport jacket is beyond me. I think the pink is cute for a fun jacket but for a classic or formal dress code, its just not right.

                    Not the way it was in THE HEYDAY. Remember the striping and the blinging and how GPAs were THE THING. They're not that anymore. And I predict that's what will happen here too. For a year eveyone will HAVE to HAVE these and then some new thing will come out and most everyone will gravatate to that. There will still bew some Animos kicking around but it'll be just one of many options.

                      Brands evolve with new ideas and styles. I remember how ugly people thought the original GPA helmets were, but then everyone started wearing them and other manufacturers started copying the look. Same with the Speed Air helmets. Europe has always been the where new styles start and they always end up here. GPA helmets, Charles Owen helmets, French saddles, Parlanti boots, Pikeur breeches, etc. and now Animo jackets. American markets seem to like all the new and different fashions and styles especially in the jumpers.

                        I think the real hook is anything that costs 2x what its competitors cost? The A Team HAS TO HAVE IT and once the A Team has it... a lot of other people want it too.

                        If a flaming bag of horse manure cost $500, people would be standing in line to buy it

                        If those Animo coats costs $200, no one would touch them with a 12 foot pole. JMHO. A lot of it is a prestige/status thing.

                          I don't know—I don't think so. Charles Owen helmets were hardly the most expensive helmet out there for awhile, and they were (still are) very, very popular.

                            At least the normal coloured ones are pretty traditional looking! That's the whole reason I got my JR8 - I could care less that they are/were trendy!

                              I think Animo coats are here to stay. The trend may veer towards blue/black/dark colors again (remember when evvveeryyoneee had colored shirts?), but I think the younger crowd (myself included) likes the cut of the Animo. I really like the soft-shell coat. For a super petite person like myself, it is 10x more flattering than a hunt coat. I get lost in hunt coats that aren't tailored for me.

                              Like almost everything in the world, you can't judge a species by an organism.

                                I have an amimo coat and it fits me like it was custom made for me. I love the fit and how it functions.

                                Just like GPA, Grand Prix and other types of coats, not everybody will looks good in them This is why there are so many styles and cuts.

                                For the red color, if you daughter loves it then let her wear it! Who really gives a crap with other peope think or say? You go compete for the love of the sport, not for a fashion show.

                                  Not ALL trends are about prestige/cost... but I think this one is

                                  If it's allllllllllll about the sooooooooooooooffffffftshell fabric... how come the hunter princesses weren't coco for coco puffs for the Kerrits version that came out a few years ago and caused basically no splash at all? Oh that's right, it cost under $100 and didn't come from Iiiitttaalllyy!

                                        I want a disco-ball jacket, preferably with a hood. Does anybody know where I can find one? I think that will be the trend at WEF this year. I heard riders on the Bulgarian Show Jumping team are wearing them.

                                          In time there will be a hunter shad designed for the American market. They will be stretchy polyester, tight and short in the front. All the better for your belly roll to poke through. Better stretch up tall in that thing! You'll have ugly pictures!
