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!

    Duct tape?!!! Hmmmm... ya got something there, have to use the pantyliners (with wings) to cover the "sensitive spots". Can ya use it insted of a "slingshot" too? I personally can't wear those (afraid they'll come out my nose), and would rather be found in the ER w/nothing than have to deal with the "wedgies"!!!! Never had the breeches split on me, but I'd still be more embarased having a thong on, than if I was "buff"!!!JMHO

      Okay, I'll ante up with the brassiere commentary: my lingerie drawer is slowly losing its hold on anything remotely resembling Victoria's Secret. My first step to the Other Side was buying a t-back Wonder Bra, so the shoulder straps didn't end up around my elbows in an equitation class. But then, I finally succumbed and bought --- a sports bra! The first one was white. Very utilitarian. But now, I have them in all colors. Yes, ala the U.S. womens soccer team, I've been known at summer shows out here to remove my riding shirt in the barn aisle and untack/wash my horse in my colored sports bra! I am woman, hear me roar! (And if I'm particularly sweaty and gross, see everyone turn their heads away in disgust).

        Top ten reasons for always returning to underwear as a topic:
        #10 It is a subject close to every rider's ... uh, heart.

        #9 It is easy to make cracks about thongs.

        #8 A lot of people get rubbed the wrong way.

        #7 There are a lot of cheeky people on this board.

        #6 No sense mooning over other subjects.

        #5 In the horse world, Derrieres are De riguer.

        #4 The rider's rear is often prominently featured in equestrian photography.

        #3 Sooner or later everyone in this business bottoms out.

        #2 If the horse can have a "chafeless girth", then why can't the rider?

        #1 You can't help but wonder.

          Baymare... quite simply... ROTFLMAO!!!!!
          Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

            Baymare......that was classic!! I now know who really write Dave Letterman's Top 10 lists. I'm not worthy to post on the same board.

              Hmmm...Lucky YOU to have such problems. For all my TS, underwear issues, I really don't have the kind of assets that make bras of any kind a problem. Duct tape is totally out of the question. I could probly get away with bandaids in an emergency...

                  HAHAHA Story time!

                  I was grooming for my friend at a show, and she forgot to bring a white bra for her light colored shirt ;X (She was wearing a black one) So she bought 3M Vetrap in the fashionable color of white and used that. Needless to say, it WORKED!

                      Talk always turns, invariably, eventually, to underwear because that's what girls talk about - in addition to their dissatisfactory body parts, their men or lack thereof, their jobs/kids/horses (the order depends on the assembled parties), and their underwear.
                      Reality is, this board is often like a slumber party of purportedly adult women who are very reminiscent of their 13-year-old selves at a slumber party. And that, BTW, is why this board is so much fun. Long live our 13 year old selves (without the acne)!!

                        My best friend wore a thong to a show one time and made a huge deal out of telling us all that she had solved the panty line problem. After her second class though she went in the porta-potty and CUT it off with the braiding scissors [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                        Needless to say we all decided to stick with the panty lines...

                          So the inevitable question would be: what is a good way to pick up men? Waiting with bated breath on this one ... can you tell I'm still bitter over the whole trainer-snatching ordeal? LOL!!!

                          BGPS - Has Babs packed up all her training tools yet...she is due in Richmond next week to assume her new position at Sea Rider Stables.

                          I must say the best way to pick up men is to play hard to get...I love doing that!!!

                            www.rods.com - go to jeans and look for Rockies or Lawmans...they are a little pricey - $40-50 - but well worth it.

                              WHOA! Shall we tell them about my duct tape experiences at the banquet last year when I wore the strapless dress?!?!


                              • #55

                                Alas as much as I wish I could go to Richmond I can't. Many many years ago I did work in the Suburbs of Richmond. It was during my illicit youth and some of the childish things I did got me a life time ban from living in the area. I shall have to stay in Northern Va and just hope you all will come visit me....sigh.... to have to give up the Sea Rider position is devestating.

                                Well here is my sad underwear tale. I am a voluptous woman and one day decided that the lovely industrial brassiere I wore really wasn't as nice (read strong) as a sports bra. So I went out purchased the best quality item that was available. I wiggled into it and thought "oh my how perfect". When I rode I didn't really notice any difference. I then discovered the difference when I took it off....or should I say the three of us took it off! I had gotten sweaty and could not get it off without assistance. I then decided then and there not to continue wearing a sports bra. I can not afford an entourage of 3 to help me get undressed after riding. Very embarassing to ask for help to remove undergarments.


                                • #56
                                  On one memorable holiday (Valentine's of all things!) Mr. Wings got thoughtful and purchased an array of undergarments for me.

                                  He was quite devastated at the look I gave him as I pawed through the bag of slinky items and found nothing but one peice "pull on over the head" bras made of t-shirt quality material.

                                  He exchanged them all for the equivalant value in super duty elastic ( from a dozen down to two! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif[/img] ).

                                  Ever since I have received Godiva chocolates and been much happier.
