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!

    I have the Panache. I like it but don't love it. I showed in it a week or so ago. It has a molded cup and it seems like alot of material so I worry it would be hot in really warm, humid weather. It definitely is comfortable and reduces bounce but the Anita probably does a little bit better job of that for my body. I have no hope of no bounce - seems unrealistic for my big girls.

      Did you try riding in the Enell yet or just the Anita? I thought the Enell really held "the girls" in. I agree with the previous poster that recommended putting it on while laying down - that really helped me get it on!

      I like the Moving Comfort bras as far as comfort goes, but for me, they don't contain the bounce at all, at least, not for riding. I use them when I'm working out on the elliptical machine and they work great for that.

        Sorry if I missed it earlier, but what size are you?
        The best sports bras for riders are Anita 5527 and Panache! Size UP in Anita, down in Panache (UK sizing)

            I'm going to try the Enell on again tomorrow. I haven't decided whether to keep it or not yet. If I keep it I'll ride in it tomorrow. I'm going to try lying down on the bed to put it on. Funny - I think I used to do that with jeans many moons ago.

              I love my Enell bras. They get more comfortable once they break in a little and you get used to the feeling of being contained. Lol. If you want no bounce, they definitely provide that.

                This is my experience too - I am a 34 DDD or E, and NO BRA I've ever owned provided no bounce till I tried the Enell (I have not tried the Anita I scored on Ebay yet, it's waiting at my sister's to be picked up). It has improved my posture 100% to the point that my coach commented on this the first day I rode in it in a lesson, and I can do sitting trot all day if I want - it's not limited by chest comfort.

                The first time I put it on, I immediately stripped and took it off after the ride - it was fine during - but uncomfortable at rest. Now, I can and have worn it all day if I don't get a chance to change. It's stil not comfortable enough to sleep in or anything, but you shouldn't sleep in a bra anyways.

                  I have to have one that is lighter under the armpits, no particular brand. The ones with lots of thick fabric under the arms seems to hold heat and moisture more than I'd like so I look for one with webbed fabric under the arms. But it's typically quite hot & humid down here so support is good but moisture soaking fabric is not so good. Best of luck to you.

                    If you would like to give pointers to where I can find a non-custom bra for a measured 48" band and 65" bust, I'll stop wearing Enells. Until then...

                      Moving Comfort Juno. DD's don't budge and they're pretty comfortable, too.

                        Enell is a no go for me. Either its too small or it just doesn't work for my body. Can't even comfortably get the dang thing on even lying on the bed.

                          The first time, I had to get my partner to help me stretch the band and get the first two bottom hooks closed. After that, I was fine doing it by myself.

                            what size do you wear in Enell? What size do you wear in your regular bras and what brands do you like for them?

                              You are more committed than I. :-) I'm going to stick with the other brands.
