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!

Yet another hunter hair question, but this one has a twist!

  • Yet another hunter hair question, but this one has a twist!

    I have not seen this one addressed in the Forums, so here goes. I am getting back into the ring, after some years off. I always had long hair, and was very competent at doing the "traditional" hunter hair. I now have short (as in over the ear short) hair, and don't quite know what to do with it. I looked at some pictures from this past weekend, and I look like a complete dork, with my ear VERY visible, and sticking out through the side harness of my GR8. Any ideas? Ear muffs? Fake hair? It would look even goofier to see a hair net stretched over my ears, and my hair is honestly short enough that there is no need.....you really couldn't see any hair at all, as the helmet covered it. Do I just have to live with my ears sticking out?
    Where am I, and what am I doing in this handbasket???

    There is a thread somewhere on here about how to do short hunter hair with some pantyhose and a hairnet, I think. But I couldn't, for the life of me, find it on the search. Maybe someone else will have more luck?

          My hair is a bit shorter than the woman in the photos posted above, but gag me with a spoon - you couldn't barely pay me to do all that. I cut my hair so I wouldn't have to cover my ears and deal with hair nets, why go through all the process to pretend that I have long hair when I don't.

          Correct me if I'm wrong, but men never wear hairnets, I don't see why women need to go through such a process if their hair is short enough.

            I agree that we shouldn't have to go through all of that, if we have short enough hair. And I was definitely excited NOT to, now that mine is short. But after looking at pictures, with my ears sticking out of the harness like two headlights, I am starting to rethink my original plan. I am going to at least try it at home, and see how it looks/feels. Of course, I may not care what my ears look like, come August in Virginia

                Ponytude you probably notice your ears much more than anyone else does.We all have ears, they are not something you need to hide or be embarrassed about. Exposing them does not make earthquakes happen ( we now know that earthquakes are caused by women in revealing clothing) if you are really upset about your ears I would forget the pantyhose process and just have them pinned back like Heidi Montag

                    So leave your hair down and get mistaken for a man.
                    Your decision.

                      I'll bet that process takes all of 45 seconds once you practice a few times and have the pantyhose-headband already tied. It makes me want to cut off my hair, actually. I've always wanted to -- especially now that I have a job with long hours -- but I wasn't sure what I'd have to do with my hair!

                        Right.
                        Because men have enough sense to realize the only appropriate time to wear pantyhose on one's head is during an armed robbery.

                                You look like a much bigger dork with pantyhose over your ears than without hunter hair. Again, the men seem to survive with their ears showing. Are women's ears more indecent? But then, I hate hunter hair in general, cannot stand having hair over my ears, and have never heard a real explanation besides "fashion" for why dressage buns (or getting all the hair up under the helmet, without the stupid ear poofs) is SO AWFUL. If you've got short enough hair you don't need a net, don't wear one!
