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!

  • Ready for new show coat-what color?

    I am not sure if I should stick with navy color or move on to another color. I am thinking about a windowpane pattern in navy but I am open to suggestion.

          If you're only going to have one coat, stick with navy. It's timeless and you'll never look out of place. Also, if you dabble in the equitation ring at all you'll want the navy.

            I want to keep the "old" one as a spare so I would technically have two. However I want to get a few more fresh show shirts. Ideas on coordinating the two would be super. If you have photos even better.

              Stick with navy. It's classic and stylish. Also, any color show shirt works with navy.

              For show shirts- you should always have a white one. I personally like white on white patterns. For the others, what color is your horse?

                As much as I like navy, I am very partial to those beautiful charcoal grey coats, especially the window pane plaids.

                  In that case, go nuts I have a light grey coat and wear lavender and light blue shirts with it. With the navy coat I wear a patterned white on white shirt. I may or may not have my eye on a tan grand prix :whistles: I'm thinking a pale yellow would look nice with it, and would also pair well with the navy.

                    The pale blue shirt would look even better than yellow with the tan GP IMO but maybe that's because I am not a fan of yellow shirts at all. I also like a very pale lavendar with tan.

                      I have a navy jacket and a dark grey one. The navy has a subtle windowpane type pattern that you can't see until you're close, and the grey(more like a charcoal) also has a subtle windowpane pattern. I think you can't go wrong with navy, but a grey coat on certain horses can look wonderful! What color is your horse?

                        I wore a brown coat and yellow shirt at a show a week and a half ago.


                        But, I also wore a navy coar with a dark purple shirt under it that weekend too.


                        Here is another coat I wear it is a Grand Prix paired with a bright mango shirt for a Halloween show


                        I have 6 hunt coats and probably 10 or 15 shirts to choose from. My coat line up includes:
                        Grand Prix lighter grey with light blue window paining,
                        RJ Classics charcoal grey with navy and maroon pinstriping,
                        RJ Classins navy (in pics) with deep purple window paining,
                        RJ Classics brown (in pics) with pinstriping.
                        Grand Prix olive/brown hard to describe color (in pics)
                        Pickeur olive/brown hard to describe color but lighter than the GP

                        For the hunters have fun with it.

                          I love Carl Hester's new tailcoat - check out the gray in the photo at the bottom here: http://horseandcountry.tv/node/21709

                          Very smart but not sure everyone could pull off that colour!

                            I'm a coat and shirt addict so usually have a lot of choices.

                            I will say that I try to wear a contrasting coat color from my horse's color in the hack so I'll stand out a bit. Both my horses are brown with minimal white so I need all the help I can get. I usually wear a light gray coat on the hack day with a lavender shirt.

                              A nice navy coat will forever be my favorite. But if you are looking for something different, I also LOVE a nice rich brown coat. Almost any shirt color can go under brown!

                                i'm going to go out on a limb and say that i LOVE the black windowpane coats that were in vogue for a brief flash of time recently. probably not the most fashionable thing at the moment, but i think they're incredibly classy looking. i want one when it comes time for me to get a new coat, i don't really care if they aren't in fashion anymore!
