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!

    There's a question.... what kind of underwear do the cowboys wear?

    Not a thong-wearer myself, although from the sounds of it, maybe I should become one -- although I still can't imagine wearing them when I ride.
    <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    I actually foxhunted in a pair of thongs one time...no problem.

    My cattle-man (can't call him a cowboy b/c he isn't in Montana rounding up cattle on the prairies or anything. Big difference b/t cowboys and cattlemen but that is a whole nother thread) wears tighty whites all the time under his Wranglers...that, mixed with the large amounts of Mt. Dew he drinks = no kids for us!!!

      VT, the tighty-whities, no kids thing makes me think of one of the funniest Seinfeld lines ever when Kramer fears a low sperm count, stops wearing briefs, doesn't like boxers and then goes without.

      He says to Jerry and Elaine, "I'm out there, I'm free and I'm lovin' it" and Elaine says with horror, "The only thing standing between him and us is a thin layer of gaberdine."

        Well, my pseudo cowboy doesn't wear them for everyday (which actually grosses me out) but I know he did when we went on our little trail ride.

        The other thing is, one time, I was in this Western wear shop and I saw these thick, practically thigh-high socks on the rack. I'm sure they are designed to keep western riders from getting jean-rubs. Therefore, I don't want to hear anything from my Wrangler-wearing friends about how western people don't get rubs. They made socks for those who do. I just had a personal giggle imagining some guy wearing them though.

          Paige, you're right and I think that has to do with the change of weather. Everyone is looking for a man to snuggle up with for the winter. Cowboys seem to have some sort of an appeal these days...

              It's funny that this particular combination of topics came up, because I remember, in my first year of college, noticing with horror that some of the "cowboys" in wranglers also had visible "panty" lines. NOT a good thing on a guy. I'm not sure I've recovered from that traumatic incident. They wear em tight, so they need to discuss underwear etiquette.

                    Please allow me to elaborate!!!!!!!

                    For all of our beautiful Schumacher (no, I don't like TS) Marigold, GP, Emerson (yes, I truly love my boots) etc., the entire picture is lost when a da*ned pantyline interferes. No matter how elegantly shaped you are, you cannot tame your butt cheeks to stay put within the confines of your undies. My quest is for the perfect pair. One which don't have a waist above my breeches and one which won't embarass the pants off me (no pun intended,) if I am in a car accident and a George Clooney lookalike ends up being my Doctor. I have had some excellent suggestions thus far, excluding of course the idea of wearing a slingshot. Sorry, I think it has been referred to as a thong.

                    Anyway, this is a serious thread! Allow it some dignity.

                    Cheers to Quinn who managed to encompass all threads of the last week in one round-up posting, George C., underwear, butt cheeks and name brands. I'm proud to be a touque wearing Canadian bagel-eating New Yorker, but even prouder to be a card carrying member of this underwear discussion group that continues to share such personal experiences with free abandon!!

                      UPDATE: I have my psuedo cowboy on the phone. First off, he said he didn't wear underwear when we went on the trail ride. And he enjoys telling me often when he isn't wearing underwear. I actually only like to hear when he does wear them.

                        Anyplace, several years ago I dated an event rider from California who looked like a cowboy -- actually he looked like the Marlboro Man -- and he didn't wear underwear very often either. He too liked to tell me about this.

                        I'm pretty open-minded, but Levi's with no underwear just seems like it wouldn't be all that comfortable for a man when he's not riding, let alone for when he's on a horse!

                                Well, I didn't see anyone wearing them...but they appeared to be worn like thigh-highs...they came up over the knee and I would assume the purpose was to keep the man's legs from getting chafed.

Well, I'm back in Virginia so put away the ascots and crank up the country music. Once again, real cowboys don't wear Levi's or underwear unless it's winter when they wear long johns.
