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 used to pick up Aeropostale polos when they were on sale... cheap, lots of colors, and just a tiny stitched logo (or the uniform kind, with no logo). Horze also makes several inexpensive, minimally logo'd polos. Éce Equestrian makes conservative, tasteful shirts as well if you'd like to splurge a little. I have several, and wear them for showing and schooling. They recently came out with a polo shirt as well

      I always get mine from a Tommy Hilfiger outlet. I like them as they carry long and short sleeved ones and they are shaped at the waist, and they have nice, solid colours....oh, and cheap (I can usually find them for $15 plus buy a 2nd at 50% off)

        I must be in a shopping mood. I love your picture PNWjumper..... and the shirt is purdy. It's fun being well turned out but a bit of a twist to it. I like to be a bit different but not over crazy done.

        I think at the recent horse show I was the only one not in tan Taylored Sportsman breeches... I ventured out and wore my Animos to show in...

        I went to Dick's Sporting Goods today and they had several on sale... however the one I had to have was white with flowers inside. It reminds me of the show shirts with the colors inside...

        I got this one....

        http://www.dickssportinggoods.com/pr...lickid=prod_cs

        It has hydro-dri fabric so we will see how it will handle our HOT California weather this summer.

        Good ideas on the Tommy Hilfiger outlet stores etc. Thanks so much for all the ideas....

        I plan to ride A LOT this summer - yay hoo...

          If you like more coverage (longer tails), and real sleeves that come near the elbow instead of those icky little "cap" sleeves and feeling shrinkwrapped, buy Men's. I buy my riding polo's at Brooks Bros. when they have their half-price sale in August. They're totally indestructible. They use better, heavier fabrics in Men's, too, and more riding-friendly colors.

            I swear by Riders (as in the Riders brand you get at Walmart) Ultimate Polo which is about $8.00. Great feel, moisture wicking, super comfortable, slimming, comes in a ton of different colors, and CHEAP. What more could you want? I have several super expensive polos made for riding specifically and HATE the feel/fit of them compared to Riders.

                Ditto Bean and Lands End polos. Now that I'm not going to work every day, I rarely wear anything other than a polo or a turtleneck.

                  I hate those stripes/huge logos. Not my style.

                  Whoever mentioned Tommy Hilfiger is totally right. They are the best riding polos in cotton. They are long, wear well, and have a mini logo. They also have cute details like little ribbon accents at the splits on the sides. I have an outlet near me and I stock up. They also have a bunch of colors, I think I have six shades of purple as it is my event color.

                  For technical fabric I go to Ross or TJ Maxx and I stock up on Nike or NB polos that look like gold type polos. Sports Authority near me also has quite a selection on sale in conservative styles and colors.

                    I just ordered some Aeropostale polos for under $10 a shirt. Everything on their website is 50% off, and clearance is another 30% off.

                    The regular priced polos are $9.80, and the uniform ones with no logo are $7.80. The clearance colors came out to $6.86.

                    How's that for a steal of a deal??

                      Lands End. Duluth, if you like long ones.
                      Some riders change their horse, they change their saddle, they change their teacher; they never change themselves.

                      Remember the horse does all the work, we just sit there and look pretty.

                        I get my polos for my business from the companies that supply to embroider's. These are plain, well fitting, and they have mens and womens styles, with the women's having just a little less boxy shape. One of my suppliers has a great advanced wicking fabric now available. Do you have any custom Embroiderer shops near you? They should be happy to order/sell you the shirt with out any emboirdery on it.

                          Yes, I'm 51 and finally found some

                          Look for ladies golf or tennis shirts. They're everywhere in Florida, I think the ones I got are "Nuvo" or something like that.

                          They are light weight, do up nicely and look like an adult is wearing them.

                          They are however, not cheap.

                            JC Penneys and LL Bean

                            LL Bean ones are pricier, but the material is nicer and holds up well.

                            JC Penneys, sadly, no longer makes their sleeveless version (at least, they didn't last year). They were a bargain. And meant less of a farmer's tan... ;-)

                              Yep, I was going to suggest Dick's golf or tennis sections for wicking polos. I also have the Outback Ice polo and love it! I see they've also added some different Ice options, too...

                                Great thread! I have been looking for exactly this. I don't want the highly branded polos that are all the equestrian brands seem to sell at the moment. I want something plain and neutral. IMO it looks more professional and less brand-whorey.

                                I bought one of these in green the other day and really like it. The embroidery might be a little young for you though.

                                  You beat me to it! I discovered these last year, and I'm in love! I think I have one in every color. The only down side is that it is so easy to just grab one during a Wally World trip! And they hold up great- aren't they made by Lee?

                                    Those etsy shirts are cute. My issue with all the budget brands I've bought over the years is that they are all too short. I bought one in Germany last summer for a great price, and after the first wash, it was midriff-baring. Um, not at my age.

                                    I measure the Tommy's for comparison to the etsy shirt, and it is 26 inches long from the highest point of the shoulder next to the collar down to the hem.

                                    You're lucky you live near an outlet.

                                          Ooh.. this makes me laugh!
                                          I saw the the lovely Horseware polos (with the stripe etc..) that looked great in the advertisements.

                                          They are great if you are young... I am not..

                                          I have two. Very nice, very expensive shirts. I really like them , however my fashion sense is not always spot on (to say the least) and I think that most likely, when I wear them,I look like an over aged polo, soccer, or rugby fan.

                                          I did buy them because they were not knitted fabric they are nice durable cotton. Next time I'll leave off the stripes!
