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!

    Thong whilst I am riding? Talk about annoying... I just wear regular underwear... besides.. you can kinda tell who's wearing a thong or not.. panty lines are sooo normal in Canada... You can kinda tell who's wearing a thong or not...


    Bebe - please know that what I am about to write in strictly in jest...

    OK, first off, I look at it this way, who wants to see someone's nasty old granny panty lines. You know what is even worse? Is when you can see the line of the crotch of the panty..and no, someone doesn't have to be bending over or going over a jump for you to see it.

    Next, my feelings on "you can tell when someone is wearing a thong". God forbid a man should know I'm wearing a thong! It might turn him on! And what woman cares that another is wearing one? When it's all said and done, for the most part, we're all women at the shows around here, whether there are males or females. The gay guys really don't care if I'm wearing floss for Pete's sake and if it does something for a straight guy, well, point him out to me. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

      Eaton's(sigh) made fantastic(can they be) granny pants with lace and no elastic. very fine article of clothing for the riding woman.

      My hubs tried the riding thing and looked sooo good in his breeches(no panty lines) that all the ladies at our barn asked him if he would wear them whether he was interested in riding or not. He would show up with breeches on and a huge t-shirt which he would continually pull down over his bottom. All the barn girls would hide in the barn and slowly make their way to the ring to watch him ride. He still hasn't gotten over it ten years later. I think he was harrassed out of riding!

      I was laughing so hard at the thought of me in a thong that..... forget it.

        My trainer swears by ice skating tights. They "hold everything in" if you know what I mean.

          hmm, never thought about that. In theory, they would definately work though. LOL, and my mom thought she was done buying skating apparel when I switched over to riding.

            I just let my cellulite and panty lines hang out there for all to see. One thing I don't do, is wear my TS too tight. A little more room goes a long way in preventing panty lines. Let's face it, unless you're built like Kate Moss, breeches are not the most flattering apparrel. I'm 5'10" and weigh around 135 -- not fat at all -- but I cringe everytime I have to put a pair of breeches on. You have to be built like a stick for them to truly look good on you! The only people I see at shows who look good in breeches are the itty bitty kids riding the ponies!

              No underwear lines?

              Easy answer....no underwear. I guess my secret is out.

                Do any of the E-searchers remember this topic that went on on the old board? It wasn't show-specific but I was ROFLMFAO at all the replies it got.


                • #28
                  Either/or... I think people have more things to do than worry about what kind of undies I am wearing, and if they don't then I don't want to know they're thinking about what kind of undies I am wearing.

                  I wear thongs when appropriate -- I canNOT go out in my "hick clothes" with a panty line. But riding would probably be another thing and I've found a couple of pairs that hardly show under TS's.

                  There's a story that comes up at every show about one of our riders who wore a thong, and her breeches split out... How embarassing would that be...

                      Thanks everyone for the laffs. I'm still wiping the coffee out of my keyboard.

                      If someone was wearing a thong and their breeches split oh LOL!! Just so long as it wasn't me. Personally I'd be even more embarrased if my granny pants were seen by one and all flapping in the breeze.

                        MAZ + Quinn- I laughed SO hard when I read your posts that my eyes started to water and I'm sure the women in the next office thinks I'm wacky. Way TOOOOO funny!

                          Lilian - hear, hear! After a long, fruitless quest for the perfect invisible yet comfy underwear, I came to the shattering realization that they just don't exist. Or, that if they do, they're too much bloody trouble to find anyway. So, now every time I put my breeches on over my regular old undies, I cheerfully recall that one of the beautiful things about doing the jumpers is not having to worry very much about appearance if you don't really feel like it. If my little heart so desired, I could wear a clown suit, so panty lines - bah! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                              The split breeches and thong thing is what sent me over the edge too. I could so see that happening to me. I still can't stop chuckling... Thanks for the Friday laughs, all!

                              Well, while I'm here, I'll add something else. A while back, someone posted "Most Embarrassing Moments" but mine was not horse related.

                              Remember when thigh highs were the rage? Well, of course, I had to rush out and get a pair. While walking from my car to the Metro, I felt them slip a little, praying they would stay up until I got on the train, it finally came and I sat down. Got in the station, started to walk, things weren't feeling very secure. Went up the escalator at Farragut West and darted into the nearest elevator (no bathrooms nearby). Hit the top floor button, made adjustments, hit L and got back off. Made it to the corner of 19th and L (for those of you who aren't familiar, this is a MAJOR intersection in DC). Started to walk across and I'll be damned, both fell around my ankles while I was in the cross walk, right in front of these two cab drivers.

                              I decided I would try to pull it off gracefully instead of running with them around my ankles for the nearest doorway to hide. I put my foot up on the curb and inched them back up. I happened to see one was laughing sympathetically at me. Or is that with me? Anyway, I had to collect myself after that so I stepped into a bus booth. There were two other women in there. Everything was silent for like two seconds and then all of a sudden, we all burst into laughter!

                              I ended up going into a Mrs. Fields and begging the guy in there to let me use his bathroom so I could get the things off and put on a pair of dollar panty hose that I bought from the street vendor. He let me and much to my surprise, just when I was about to put the trash in the can in the bathroom, lifting the lid revealed that was where they kept the cookie dough bags.

                                Anyplace quote: "When it's all said and done, for the most part, we're all women at the shows around here, whether there are males or females. The gay guys really don't care if I'm wearing floss for Pete's sake and if it does something for a straight guy, well, point him out to me. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]"

                                Anyplace....you hit the point. Now if the gay / straight percentage would just shift, I'd plug my nose and learn to enjoy butt flossing my way through the jumpers. Afterall, that's what I do all day long in an effort to end the single NY life. And it ain't as hip as looks on TV.

                                P.S. This computer thing confounds me...how do you do the bold quotey thingy....mine didn't turn out right. I think it all the stress caused by Friday's thong, although I have Canadian roots, I do not have Canter's Strongest Butt Cheek Award yet!! I have to concentrate.

                                  Are you hitting the icon that is the little sheet of paper with the red arrow next to it? It's the Reply w/Quote key or something like that.

                                    OH, yes, I remember! It really brought out the trolls as I recall - as did the "How does a short person get onto a tall horse" topic! In fact, I was almost afraid to open this here thread. But I'm glad I did - MAZ, I rarely laugh out loud as I read this board, but your post...well, let's just say the tears were rolling down my cheeks! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                        Yeah, I hit the little button thing and it didn't work right for me. Perhaps I shall pray to the Thong God for strength ('cause you know those that can are the strongest) and try again. My new theory, perhaps all riding throng wearers can answer, do those that can wear a thong while riding (day time clothes don't count...) have boyfriends / husbands? 'Cause I think I'm determined to try again if there is a positive correlation.

                                        P.S. Canter if your answer is yes, I shall revert to my Canadian roots and streak through the barn in just a touque and thong and see what reward would await.
