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!

      In just the first two shows this year I have been to (pretty large venues in my area) there are many colors in fashion. Of course navy, but there is lighter shades of blues, grays, greens, browns, pinstripe, etc.

      The popular coat makers have all types of fabrics, collar colors, piping, colored buttons, colored stitching.... they are beautiful. But still very conservative and classy.

      My trainer wore a brown coat with a lighter brown collar with tan piping around the collar and a tan shirt in the hunters and it was very nice....

        Oh, I miss my green coat! I remember chasing my last Medal and my trainer saw who was judging and told me I needed to go borrow a green coat because the judge was infamous for loving them (was it Carol Maloney? Can't remember, but it was --gulp--27 years ago!). I borrowed on from my barnmate, won the medal, then bought the coat. Used to love it with a pale pink show shirt.
        Life would be infinitely better if pinatas suddenly appeared throughout the day.

          Actually I have seen several people wearing rust breeches lately! I have been waiting for this trend to come back for so long! At the TB shows in Lexington, I have seen rust breeches galore, along with faded velvet caps! I absolutely LOVE it! If only I could find my old olive colored Pytchley coat that my parents had from before I showed. I used it a handful of times in the 90s and rocked it during the era of navy pinstripe jackets, olive breeches and white on white pinstripe ratcatchers.

          Then again I'm a firm believer in going against the grain. Heck, I am measuring to order brown field boots too!

            I have an older Grand Prix jacket that is a beautiful deep emerald-ish green. It's quite dark, you can't really tell it's green until you get up close. I love it.

            I used to pair it with a textured pale green shirt. Lent it to a friend who wore it with a light coral (looked great), and I've recently purchased a light yellow to go along with it too.

                I say it's time for a cross country field trip. You come over here for a show and I'll go over there for a show. Nice and economical, right? But it would be fun!
                I still think that my idea of meeting in the middle and doing the MN Harvest Show was a solid one.

                    I'm having a devil of a time finding the cream shirts. I have, however, found infinite white options *yawn* I do want to add brown field boots eventually I adore them.

                    I will also admit to being gleeful that day coats are coming back into fashion in saddle seat land, lol.

                      I love rust breeches. There is a pair hanging in my closet(waiting for me to lose a little more weight). I can pass on the faded velvet helmet)

                        When I saw this thread, my immediate response was hunter green coat, yellow shirt and rust breeches, of course. Momentarily forgot the brown field boots, but yes, those too. A classic look from the 70s!

                          You rock that green coat with some rust breeches in the show ring like it's 1986 all over again, and I will be your biggest fan.

                              In general, the dark green was always my favourite riding jacket colour. Or rather "show coat" as they are called now... somehow I missed when that happened. Kind of like how starfish are no longer starfish - they are sea stars.

                                Due to living with my head in the sand I don't think I'll ever know what the trends are However I saw this coat about 5 years ago and LOVED it it has metallic purple/ teal-ish interior and I wear it with a dark purple shirt. It makes me happy every time I see it, fashionable or not :P

                                  Hah! I agree. In my world, they are hunt coats and shirts are ratcatchers. I still hear people call a coat a hunt coat, but I RARELY hear ratcatcher anymore.

                                    Interestingly enough, I was going to use "ratcatcher" in my post, but thought people might not know what I was talking about!

                                      Same here. Except it's been in my closet since the 90's. And I had a green and burgundy pinstripe shirt with a hunter green monogram that went with it.

                                          I looked high and low for a green hunt coat about 3 years ago and finally was able to find one. It's hunter green. My mare is Chestnut and I have green eyes. I love it. I wear it with a white shirt but I have thought of pairing it with pale lavender. It was very fun to wear my green coat at my most recent show which was on St. Patrick's Day! I would also love to have a dark purple coat but I don't know that anyone makes such a thing.
