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!

  • Choker-less show shirts? (Found 'em!)

    Has anyone seen these? I saw a ton at a show this weekend, but none of the vendors at the show actually had them.

    They're just like a regular show shirt, except the collar snaps together (sort of at an angle) eliminating the need for a regular button-together choker.

    They look super convenient and don't look very different from a regular show shirt at all once they're snapped.

      I have seen show shirts that rather than having a choker they have an extra long bit to the collar that wraps around the front and buttons on the side. Not very noticeable at all and definitely convenient!

      Oops! Problem solved! I think those were the ones I was thinking of!

          Now that I know what they are, I'm gifting myself one from SmartPak this week. There's nothing wrong with a little self love, right?

            Finally!

            It will end the argument with my daughter..."I put my collar in this pocket, I swear...oh here it is, shoved into my helmet bag."

            One less thing to worry about.

            Love it!

              I have one and I love it! It is easy except for if you jump big (this happens to me over 3'6"+) the snap comes undone, mostly because I hit myself in the neck . It happened to me over the first jump at junior hunter finals oopsies! i have to figure out a way to fix that.

                I gotta say I'm not a huge fan... But I can see why people would like them.

                But I like my chokers

                  I have one and I absolutely love it! Mine fits smaller than my regular Essex shirts though, so I'd recommend trying one on before buying it.

                    I saw a few of them at the MHPS this past weekend. I don't care for the new fad. It looks less classy.

                      Does anyone have a photo of someone wearing one with a coat and has anyone seen these used as a casual shirt?

                      Just curious.

                          I have one of the snap collar shirts and while I like it, it does look different from a traditional choker. The collar ends a little lower than a choker does.

                          ETA: Never had the problem neigh.neigh has had...

                            Neat idea but I'd be afraid the snaps would come undone while I'm on course!

                                What I'd like to suggest to Essex is that they make the snap collar shirts WITH a choker! I know, I know, defeats the purpose for most people, right? But there have to be a few other people out there like me... I REALLY love the look of the angled fold-down collar with print inside, but I do not like the look of the angled front snapped up. I greatly prefer the classic, smooth choker look. So I would love if they had a collar you could purchase with it or something. I have always folded down my collar when I wasn't riding (ahead of that trend, lol), so now I love having it look "real", but truly miss the classic choker look...
                                ...for there are wings on these hooves, the speed and power of foam-capped waves...

                                  I found these, I didn't have the money to spend on an Essex shirt , but I purchased the tone on tone white shirt. The collar has a beautiful paisley collar. An after all tack was easy to work with.

                                    How did you find the fit? I was looking at these, also

                                      One other question, do you bother to monogram the collar on these or do you just leave it plain? I really like something on the collar, I have started using a small iron detail that matches the coat and shirt my daughter wears on her collars, we pass EVERYTHING down so intials were a bit tricky ( my kids have different names surprise surprise LOL) but I like the look of something on the collar and was wondering what would work on the wrap collar.

                                        I honestly haven't seen monogramming on collars in a few years, at least in our area.
