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!

  • Polo shirts w/o stuff

    I wasn't going to start another thread but my search was not working and then I googled cool weather riding polo shirts for a while and most of them have some big ole logo on them or a big stripe... I am an older rider and just cannot pull that off.... so....

    The other day I wore one shirt I have that has a big stripe down it and my hubby gave me a funny look. I asked if the shirt looked funny - he said, "NO, it just looks like you are part of Mach 5." Yes I am in my late 40's so Speed racer was something I remember.

    So do you know where I can find nice, conservative, comfortable, cool weather riding polo shirts?

    Thanks

    My suggestion would be to search for golf polos rather than riding polos.

        cool weather ones? LLBean makes a long sleeve polo, no logo.

        Otherwise, I am cheap and I buy the short sleeve ones at Old Navy...

              Old Navy - but look in the men's (or boy's if you are small enough) sections. That's where I get my solid / basic stripped polos for riding.

                There are many things I will spend lots of money on in the sport of riding, but I just can't justify spending $80+ on a horsey brand polo. Old Navy has great options that look clean and classy for a much more reasonable price.

                  Lands End and LL Bean both have good plain polos. Or Target.

                  Those horsie polos with the single diagonal stripe in the front make me think of Miss America!

                    Lacoste is another, although those are still somewhat pricey. Walmart, American Eagle...really any sort of "preppy" store should have a wide variety of plain polos!

                      Aeropostale and American Eagle. They have a very small logo in the right hand corner but it's only about the size of a nickel. They aren't to expensive either.
                      Talking to some people is like folding a fitted sheet.

                        Yep, American eagle. Cheap, long, soft stretchy plain polos. I love mind

                          No...in fact, I would say that there are a LOT more "subtle fun" designs in the golf world than horse shops. My mom went from riding to golfing full time and I'm always eyeing the new polo shirts she has And the best part is that there are a lot more designed for "real" hot weather. Old Navy and other fashion store polos are great, but they're not cool in the way that you're looking for.

                          There are also a lot of ensembles for golf (speaking top half of the body only) that would be great clinic wear or schooling show wear. Smart looking and very technical fabrics.

                          I got this one from a golf shop on eBay (IIRC), and you can't tell from the picture, but it's more like a meshy material than a true fabric. When you hold it up it looks like it would be completely transparent. We don't get real heat often up here in the PNW, but boy I can feel a difference on those 1 or 2 weeks a year where I'm showing in 90/100 degree heat!

                            I have to second the "golf" idea. I get overheated very easily. While I like the traditional look of a basic polo from somewhere like Old Navy, Polo, Izod etc and have purchased great polos and amazing prices from outlets and places like Costco and Sams club, I have found that spending a bit extra on a golf shirt makes all the difference in the world. Check Dick's sporting goods during the off season. I purchased mine in August and September and bought several nice breathable shirts for $13 each. And yes, they have great golf ensembles that work wonders for schooling shows and clinics. But then again, I love the preppy look.

                              Tommy Hilfiger at Macy's: great colors, tiny flag logo, $30 each, and they are loooong. They stay long after repeated washings, too.

                                Cabelas or Bass Pro Shops have some nice polos.

                                  I got mine from Lands End in sale section. They ended up being 5 bucks a polo. (which makes them getting covered in dirt and drool a little easier to swallow)

                                    Target! I often get the largest sized boys' one so it's not huge on me, but I like them more fitted.

                                      Kohls in the men's section I find the polos in Tall sizes so I can tuck them in. Plus throw them in the dryer & not care if they shrink some. With sales they are sometimes $11.99 (or less) plus a coupon. I just re-stocked a few new colors for this summer.

                                      I also check Old Navy for sales on polos too.

                                        Thank you! I'm going to check these out, I'm long torso'd and I'm sick of having them un-tuck.

                                        This is such an appropriate thread for me today. I'm wearing a stripey l/s Joules one (from the Dover clearance section) and it's so bright that I keep scaring/startling myself when I glance down.
