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!

  • Why do all of our topics turn to underwear?

    OK, granted, the Panty Line thread was specifically about underwear, or lack thereof, but has anyone else noticed that no matter what we start off talking about lately, turns into a discussion about jock straps or underwear?

    Is there something wrong with us? Should I bring this up in therapy the next time I go, but Kennett Square skips it? Is it because Colin is back? Is it because we're depraved? Or maybe it's just a change in the weather?

      I dont see anything wrong with undergarment discussions.

          Tin - You must've gotten the Van Teal thongs, only to find that the Serengeti thong/harness ones were the new rage. You really must keep up with these threads to know what to buy.

                Well, I can only assume that our conversations always turn to underwear or jock straps because (on the whole) we all wear them.

                Up hear in the great white north toques get the same kind of attention. It is an all encompassing obsession. Most Canucks I know have a varied and colourful(note spelling is correct) ensemble of hats and scarves.

                  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.

                    Oh my! Who knew the seriousness of the issue. From now on, I am taking every one of my slingshots very, very seriously and thanking the nice man (because I know a man had to have designed them) that invented them so that I may wake up on any given day, pull on my breeches or my python pants and not have panty lines. All the while, maintaining my dignity.

                        I wouldn't have my wonderful man if I hadn't been wearing my slingshots with my Rockies (For non-cowboy people - Rockies are a brand of jeans that make you look 2 sizes smaller than you are!). Granny panties with pocket-less pants...I think not...not a good way to pick up men!!

                          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!!!

                            Can you ride in these things like Wranglers? You know, do they have the seam? I'm nursing a recent jean-rub. Didn't have my little rider's leggings that day. INFACT I got the jean rub in Williamston!

                                We haven't even touched on brassiers or trusses so this thread is still within decent boundaries.

                                There is a reason I carriage drive and look forward to showing on the line. My undergarments must be purchased by the yard and that super duty elastic is expensive!

                                    No, if you rode Western, that would be fine, but they look dorky on Hunter riders b/c of the fact they have no rear pockets. They look bad under chaps. Plus, in order to be "in style" in aggie-world, you need to get the jeans long enough to "stack" over your boots. Most people I know, including myself, get a 36" inseam. So Rockies would be toolong to ride in. I guess Wranglers are fine for hunter people to wear. I personally leave my Rockies for cattle showing and when I go out on the town with the honey. I don't do wranglers b/c they make my hind quarters look rather large!! I love Old Navy jeans to ride in...How we get off the topic of horses so easily. I bet Erin is about to pull her hair out...

                                      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.
