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!

        You guys are killing me. Who new that underwear and unschedualed bikini waxes would cause such a stir?

          So thongs can rob you of your virginity, and granny pants are ugulee. I found some panties at Walmart that claimed to be the World's best fitting Panties. I bought several pairs and they fit great and don't give you a wedgie! The bikini brief with half your rear end hanging out looks horrible under breeches. Worse than a panty line at your leg.
          Man plans. God laughs.

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

            Who had the "Most Embarrassing Moment" when a cohort of HN's split her breeches during a clinic?

                Admit it......admit it and your life will be simpler. Okay, okay, I admit it. I don't want to go home. I want to go out and buy a bottle of wine and come back to the office and chat to my BB fiends, no, no I mean friends. Honestly!

                So, now the possibility of no underwear. No can do. Remember being told by our mothers to make sure we're wearing clean underwear in case we're in an accident and need to go the the hospital? HELLO!!!! Under certain circumstances with the tummy held in just so and draping something seductive around us, we can look quite tantalizing. But Lord, just picture being prone, on a hospital gurney and voila........no undies. I repeat, no can do.

                  Think white Tailored Sportsmans on a rainy day...this would probably be a tad more embarassing than panty lines not to mention errant panty liners.

                      Heidi, this quite simply has to stop. One quick story which semi relates to your white breeches comment.

                      Picture this. Years ago, wearing a stunning new hot pink bathing suit. I seductively climb out of the pool, walk toward my husband (now ex) and might I add, walking as though I was one hot little number. He is motioning to me and waving rather hysterically. I think I'm just driving him toward madness in his desire for me. Well no. What he is actually doing is trying to tell me my bathing suit is now completely transparent and there I am for the entire world to view. Now that I think about it, I wonder if that's why we split. No, come to think of it, he's still waiting for me to answer that question. You know the one.....what's more important to you, the horses or me?????

                        Let m,e just tell you!!!!! I would sooner go Captain than wear a THONG!!!! Honey, no matter what- its a major wedgie. You just don't go there. Especially when your horse decided to make a REALLLY big effort, and your upper body lurches forward. Its like being hung from your underwear (Ok, so its never happened to me, but i can imagine(being hung, that is)!!!!)

                        Thong is just a major no-no. You go free to the wind, or you wear TIGHT undies. But thongs? not unless....ok, never mind..

                          heidi do you remember a certain grand prix rider who used to regularily ride in her white TS's sans undies?

                          Do you remember when she got dumped into the liverpool at the original Tournament of Champions. For reference see Quinn's tranparent pink bikini story.

                          I believe she's moved to Europe (or coventry) poor dear ... too hard to live that one down!

                            Not only have we amused ourselves endlessly we have inadvertently stumbled onto a more humane form of execution - wonder if George Dubya is lurking. Forget the electric chair, hang 'em by a thong. I think the mere threat, at least for Becca, would also go a long way to deter many from a life of crime.

                            And Canter, I do remember feeling like Superman that one day with keen x-ray vision. BTW, had I experienced a similarly translucent moment, I'd leave the country too and enter the witness protection program for the underwear-challenged.

                              Heidi- You have me pegged. Threaten me with a thong-wedge, and I promise, I'll never kill another person again. Or steal. Or embezzle. Or cheat. Or Lie. Or voice my opinion.... Ok, I'll give up all my other favorite pass times, but being a bossy big-mouth is one even super thong will not end! However, thongs would be more cost efficient than the electric chair. You can buy them at walmart- 10 for 5 dollars!!!!

                                My dear new friends, the internet crashed but I'm back. Okay, in answer to the bathing suit story.....I'm in Mexico for a week off work. Swimming w/ the Dolphins. Excellent white almost two piece but attached at the side by fab. gold buckle....smokin' if I don't say so myself. I'm first in and the trick is lie face down in the water, two dolpins swim up underneath and with their noses push you up and out of the water. Standing on their noses they push you along the water for about 100ft.

                                Yes, first the bathing suit was clearer than a Ziploc bag filled w/ water and then insult to injury, the buckle thing broke from the force of the water as I was pushed out of the water. So here I am wipping along the water standing on the nose of two dolphins in front of approx. 50 Japanese tourists....handicams focusing in! I do have pictures but somehow I think Erin would throw me off the BB forever and how sad, I'd miss all my new fab. friends.

                                  How I am just cackling about being hung from your underwear! I can just about picture it.......as a dressage rider I wear white breeches and believe me, when they get wet, everything shows! I usually wear pantyhose under them to get rid of the panty lines......what does one do about slimming the gut?

                                  Those of us who have had children know regaining that lovely figure we had before pregnancy, may or may not be a reality.

                                  Anyone have any suggestions on what to do to slim the gut? Girdle maybe? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                                    Bethe, I believe there are laws in the books about attempting half passes in a girdle.

                                    My mother once told me to wear a girdle during pregnancy to prevent stretch marks (scoffed at her and now have the map of Italy on my belly) and I cannot imagine the pain and discomfort of wearing one to ride.

                                    There is a line of 'undergarments' called Body Slimmers, can't remember the manufacturer, which may work. How about control top pantyhose under your white breeches?

                                      OMG, I have to stop reading this thread because I'm laughing so hard that I'm going wet the underwear I have on!!

                                      Actually, I think I'll have my aforementioned husband read this later.... it will give him an entirely different perspective on what to watch for at the hunter ring.

                                        Oh my, my age is showing! I saw this post early today and thought - no way am I going to tell everyone that I wear thongs under my TS's. They'll think I'm not only a wanton woman, but an "over the hill wanton woman" - whose 43 yr.old. a$$ should probably be properly supported by a "foundation style" undergarment.

                                        Well, I was just about to leave for home (after a long, long meeting)and decided to check and see if anyone was brave enough to "tell all".

                                        I can't believe the stories! I probably won't stop laughing till sometime tomorrow.

                                        Just so everyone knows tho' - my rear end still has it's original suspension system in place or I WOULD wear a "foundation garment" instead of a thong.
