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!

      Romfh makes one like that. Course they're not outrageously priced so I doubt that's what you saw

        I have several of the Romfh ones (http://www.equinenow.com/store-item-124072) and saw them on a bunch of other (BNT) folks in the GP walks throughout the end of last summer.

            The new Essex talent yarn shirt is what came to my mind.

              Could it be an Éce shirt? Those are mesh and have buttons partway down... Could also be Le Fash

                  The Ece and Essex Talent Yarn shirts don't have mesh, do they? I have a Le Fash shirt and it's really nice, but the material on the sides is bamboo, not mesh. And the Ece Shirts look like they're a solid fabric as well.

                  The only ones I've seen with actual mesh are the Romfh shirts. I'm interested in hearing what the OP has to say, though, because I'd love to know if there are more than just the Romfh ones that I could be looking for (Me? A problem? Naaawwww ). The mesh panels are AWESOME in the hot weather and I wish that more companies would pick up on the trend.

                    The Essex Talent Yarn shirts are entirely a very fine, silky mesh... the whole shirt is covered in teeny-tiny holes.

                      Ahhh, the Essex Talent Yarn are awesome...I already have a few. You can find where to buy them by inputting your state below.

                      http://www.essexclassics.com/stores.php

                      However, my one issue...Has anyone else noticed that they don't seem to be as white after washing but you can't really bleach due to the colors inside the collar and cuffs? Any suggestions?

                        I'm curious, are the Essex and Ece shirts mesh or are they one of the newer/nicer technical fabrics?

                        My Romfh shirts have parts that are literally mesh (and see-through, as mesh is) along the insides of the arms and then 3/4 of the shirt is a holey technical fabric (also super light, but not what I would consider mesh). From looking at the online descriptions it looks like that's what these other shirts are. I wouldn't think you'd be able to make a whole shirt out of mesh because it would be too see-through.

                        Sorry if I sound like a broken record, but I'm really curious about whether there are even better shirts to wear under a hunt coat in hot weather. The Romfh are the best I've found because that mesh is like having nothing on under your coat, and feel about the same as my short sleeved show shirts. And they're the only ones I've seen with real mesh (i.e. completely see-through).

                          Maybe mesh wasn't quite the right word... there are small holes throughout the fabric on Éce shirts, they're made out of wicking technical fabric.

                            I believe some FITS show shirts have the mesh underarm.

                              This is a brand new shirt from Essex. We are already on our second shipment of them. It's both a technical shirt and show shirt. Runs XS-XL. They do run a bit on the smaller size. RJ Classics has them as well. You will love them! Dana Miller-Chagrin Saddlery.

                                What is the fit like with the essex talent yarn shirts? I wear a 34 in regular essex show shirts and can't decide if I would need a small or medium in the talent yarn shirt.

                                  I'm sorry but this Stretchy , techno , zippered , lowrise,machine washable , disposable world is just to much for me. Where is the tradition??? When did well fitting, beautifully tailored Show clothes become obsolete? These new fangled clingy, stretch, thin as a tissue, "Hunt Coats" sent me over the edge.. after trying to fit a legitimate size 2 rider in a GP or RJ model this last week I gave up , I protest , bring on the rust breeches, Van Teal cotton Shirts , and Dehners with no zippers. I make one concession, The newer light weight wool hunt coats , still beautifully tailored.

                                    My horse is an athlete. I manage his fitness and yes, his attire, carefully, to maintain his ability to perform at his top potential. I am an athlete. I manage my own fitness to perform. And just like my horse has a well-fitting saddle that doesn't interfere with his ability to move freely, I embrace technical fabrics that take into account that we are competing in a sport where it would not be ideal if we passed out due to heat stroke and fell off the sides of our horses.

                                    The stretchy panels in my hunt coat saved me a serious tailoring bill to accommodate my linebacker shoulders. The technical fabrics in my breeches and my ratcatcher keep me cool. And I like being able to wash my breeches and saving money- not to mention being environmentally friendly- by avoiding dry cleaning.

                                    I am not going to be the fool who rides in a wool coat and cotton shirt when it's 100 degrees in the shade. I think we can honor the traditions that we came from while still respecting the fact that we're athletes.

                                    And those Romfh shirts look like a great idea.

                                        Anyone know where other than smartpak you can order the Essex yarn shirts, they're sold out in my size.
                                        Honestly in the 90+ heat it can hit at Tennessee shows (Brownland is literally the pits of hell sometimes), I'm fully involved with the soft shell, mesh, technical trends. In the winter, bring on the warmer coats and jackets, but no thanks in the summer. Also I like to be able to machine wash my things.
