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!

  • ThinLine Products

    After becoming a recent convert to a ThinLine believer I find the need to rave about how superb their products are.

    I purchased a ThinLine pad last year and initially only used it to jump in. However, I saw such a difference in both my horse and myself that I now use the pad on a daily basis. The black pad looks brand new and it is over a year old.

    Recently I purchased their line of open-front and ankle boots. They are AMAZING! They fit terrifically (although my guy is an easy fit) and don't slide or rub. In addition, my horse's legs were tight and cool after my ride. With the neoprene lining I always worried about breathability and heat, especially in the warmer months. And to be able to just wipe them off with a damp towel or sponge afterwards and they look brand new again? Love it.

    Time to save up for the sport boots so I can pair those with the ankle boots to flat in .

      I've got the original half pad (no fleece, just the Thinline material) and love it - I use it every ride. The first one I had developed a crack after just a few months, and I had absolutely no problem exchanging it for a new one. The company wanted it back so they could investigate what the flaw was. My replacement has been in use probably 5 years and still looks new.

      I ordered the long girth at Rolex and am just waiting for it to arrive. Can't wait to try it!
      I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.

        Love my thinline pad - I also have a, new to me, original pad. Does anyone make a pad with pockets? I hate "layering" pads and would much prefer to slip the thinline into a pad - if that makes sense . . .

          None I've seen. If you find one though, let me know!

            A quick Google search turned this up:

            http://www.vrtack.com/product_info.p...FUQ6QgodNkwAIA

            Not the prettiest but if I understand what you're looking for, it seems to somewhat fit the bill. I imagine there are other nicer ones around but this was the first one I found.

            Also, if you contacted someone on Etsy that makes saddle pads, they could probably quite easily make one with pockets.

              Thanks very much! I had also done a search and didn't find much - this would be an option though.

                I love my Ultra Thinline, unfortunately, it doesn't work with my one horse (saddle too wide with it so I need to get the half pad with the Thinline on top. With the other horse I'm a bit concerned about fit. I don't care how many times the company says the Ultra Thinline doesn't change saddle fit...that statement defies logic. It absolutely does change fit...even if it's only slightly. In fact, that statement by the company really bothers me. No one in their right mind should believe it. You're adding width under the saddle, it changes fit. I can feel it when I girth up. My saddle sit differently.

                Still doesn't mean I don't think it's a great product.

                You could try a Toklat Medallion Super Quilt half pad...take out the inserts an dput your thinline inside. It would only work if your saddle will fit with a fleece pad.

                    For show or schooling? Toklat sells fleece pads and fabric square with pockets (velcro closures at the spine) so you can cut your thinline pad to fit into it.

                        Yet another BIG thumbs up for ThinLine.

                        I have the "old" correction pad, the newer Trifecta and *shoe insoles* - they made a HUGE difference for me, standing on a concrete floor many days of the week.

                          I've recently started using a Thinline pad with my guy and I can feel a huge difference. His back has gone from stiff board to trampoline!

                            Schooling or show - a thin cotton pad would be best, as RugBug mentioned, I don't want to alter saddle fit.

                              Have you seen the Saddle Fitting page on the ThinLine website?
                              http://shop.thinlineglobal.com/c/sad...g-pads_english
                              On that page they do have a Fitted and Cotton All Purpose Square with UltraThinLine sewn into the pad, so you don't have to use more than one pad. Plus they have shimmable pockets encase you need to ad more padding.

                                I sure have - but, since I already have the thinline pad separately, I don't really want to shell out mega bucks for the combo pad . . .
