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!

      WHAT!! My breeches have never been split!! AARRGGHH, I can't even imagine.

      And for those of you that have had your britches give out in the worst place....it was either that they should have been retired a long time ago or YOU WERE WEARING THE WRONG SIZE.

      Good grief.

      • I was wearing a very old pair of jeans one day while riding and they split right across my hind end over a jump. I have also split a few pairs getting on horses. And no, I don't wear tight jeans....they were thread-bare


        • Becca has been known to wear jeans riding that are maybe just a LITTLE too tight. Leg up is the one thing to really avoid. That tearing sound is my greatest fear.

            But the "wrong size" can happen innocently too. Like the dryer for instance, the same one that eats socks, it seems to shrink my clothes specifically around my hips and keeps the length the same. And I definately know its the dryer.....I'm sure its not the endless hours I spend in the office, sitting my hiney, working so diligently (never posting on COTH)!


            • HN, I didn't mean you! LOL, I'm sorry!! But I do remember hearing a story from someone about a woman who DID split her breeches sans underwears during a clinic -- I'm trying to figure out who I heard it from!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

              After reading this thread, I think I will go out and by myself some granny undies just in case . . . ! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

              • VtRider, I've had the same problem with my jeans that I ride in. One pair split last week and I noticed that another is starting to wear through. Like you, I do not wear them too tight, they're just getting worn out at a rapid rate! No thongs underneath for me. All cotton, French cut briefs thank you very much -- no rubbing or chafing. No panty lines with jeans and I can live with the lines under my breeches.


                • MAZ....I can never ever look at you with a straight face again....never....scary I just learned more about you in the last 3 minutes then I did in our weeks living together...scary....

                  • LOL MAZ, members of the Canadian clique never admit to sitting about on their hineys...unless said hiney is parked at the local Hortons...and judging by the staff uniforms, they use the same make of dryer that you do.

                    • Yo Canter....Hortons (Tim Hortons right?) - just wanted to update my Canadian facts.
                      FYI: was recently at the might TH and was amazed at the soup / bagel combination (the bagel was almost as good as a NYC H&H bagel).

                      And ErinElliston - please don't think less of me my pal. In fact I'm surprised you held me in such high esteem prior to realizing from this BB that I truly have a gutter sense of humour!!

                      • Gotta story to share along the splitting pants lines...this just happened a month ago while I was at Nationals. We had just gotten there and I needed to school my mare in the big ring to get her used to it before the jumpers the next night. Heard over the PA that they were closing the ring at 4:30 and having lost track of time thought that it was almost 4:00 and she wasn't even groomed much less tacked up. Doing this sans groom didn't have time to change into different jeans. So what was I wearing? A pair of threadbare jeans I bought when I had gained my freshmen 10#'s and have since lost it. So they were WAYYY too big. So I tacked up and went to the ring and in the middle of everyone in there I go to mount up from the ground and what do I hear but RRRIIIIPPPP! Those jeans had fell down so low that the waist was drooping around my hips and the crotch was a good 2-3 inches below where it was suppose to be. and it ripped all the way across one butt cheek! There in the middle of all those professionals and big names. I was soo embarassed, but luckily I was wearing my chaps and wasn't wearing Butt floss. Then the piece de resistence, I had to go to outback with some old friends in the same trashed jeans, after realizing I had more than 1.5 hrs to get in the ring and school! Boy did I feel dumb.

                        • I cant believe that everyone here has so drasticaly underestimated the real power of a thong.

                          There is nothing like a thong to remind you to sit up straight in that Eq class; don't SLAM back into the saddle or do other harsh movement on your horses back and surely dont yank your horse down to a screeching halt at any expense. You will think twice about missing to any jump, not just a sizeable one. I think these are all good things.

                          I love thongs and at least when I dont ride so swell I have my hubby to tell me its allright cause I look pretty hot just standing there.

                          I will say that I hate wearing thongs with looser fitting pants and even skirts because the powerful, thong honed butt cheeks tend to want to pull loose clothing in too and there is nothing worse then reverse camel toe.

                          The big peeve I have that comes second only to the underwear line thing is bouncing bousoms. That must be because my front is as flat as my back.

                            Now that is one of the funnest things I've read yet. Retrophish you rock!!

                            P.S. I didn't know thongs actually honed your butt. Another side benefit...see what you can learn on this BBoard.


                            • I dont know that they hone your butt either, someone else said you need hurculean butt cheeks. I just know the cheeks get a little eager that's all - and that's enough. Think about it, someone that tolerates the butt floss -say me for example, is probably incapable of feeling the slack/skirt creepage. Now, catching a glimpse of that on yourself in the lady's room can cause quite a scream.

                              So much for thinking your some sexy thang.

                                  • Marks and Sparks:

                                    When I was in England I had some warm flannel nighties from M$S; a necessity in that environment. After I got back to the States, those nighties lasted forever.

                                    Actually. some years ago, there was an article on Marks and Spencer in of all places, Gourmet Magazine. The article described the stringent procedures that the company employed to ensured the durability of their products.

                                    Maybe they could be convinced to offer their products in a catalog. I would be first in line to buy.

                                    No thongs for me! My derriere needs to be warm!
