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!

  • Great Deal on Coats

    Tack of the day has a great deal on hunt coats today. Always good to have a spare for these rain soaked shows.

  • #2
    Does anyone know how those Wellington coats fit? Should I order 2 sizes bigger than my dress size like most hunt coats or are they truly fit to size like one of the reviews on Dover? Thanks!

      well the size chart is crazy that they posted on TOTD but I went with it, since I know they can run big. I wear a 14 in an Ariat and so i compared the measurements and come out to a 10 US in their sizing (talk about vanity sizing!), so I ordered that one, I am hoping it fits, but if not, up to sale on ebay it will go

        I took a leap of faith and ordered a 4, in a GP i would get a 12slim. If it doesn't work someone in the barn will fit in it and they will get a good deal.

          Huh - I just called Dover to see what size chart they had, and in US sizing they said they actually tend to run very small - according to their chart, an 8 is a 32.5 bust and 30 inch waist, and a ten is a 34.75 bust and 31 inch waist. It sounds like they have a very boxy fit.

            That's not at all what the size chart on TOTD says...that 8 would be a US0 according to that chart.

            I figured it was worth a try....I would hope that it's not dramatically different than the measurements they gave. I know that my daugher had a Wellington "full size" coat ordered directly from Wellington that came in the other day and she would honestly need to go down 2 sizes to get something that fit her. Meanwhile, she tried a Wellington normal show coat at Dover and fit into her "normal" size.

              "running small" for the platinum would be a huge understatement time to visit ebay...

                Haven't received mine yet but that would just suck if that's the case. i went by the meausurements, which TOTH clearly said to do. They must have been incorrect if the coats are not fitting as expected. They shoudl allow for returns for false advertising.

                  Got mine, not the Platinum but the Cloudburst. Fit isn't bad, it's a teeny tiny bit too small across the bust. According to the measurements it should have been perfect across the chest, but I did try it with a loose fitting polo and not my sports bra....

                    I got mine too (the one in "cloudburst". It is LOVELY) but I have to opposite problem. I measured according to the chart AND another chart for Wellington I found. It's HUGE. At least a size too big; more like two. I may see about having it taken in, but I'm afraid it might be too big even for that, especially in the shoulders (which, ironically, is exactly where I worried about it being too small...

                      yeah you HAD to go with the chart on TOTD, not any of the others you could find at Dover etc. What size do you have and what do you need Maybe we can organize some COTH swaps!

                        Tack of the Day? I just found the site. Gee, thanks, I really needed another place to buy tack from

                        I'm going to end up on the "tackaholics" thread because of this new one!

                          Size 2

                          The chart on TOTD indicated that I was a size 0. Used the same size measurements for everything else I've bought... ordered up a size to compensate for a "tighter" fit. Ordered a size 2, and it would be the equivalent of a 000 if there is such a thing- it would fit a 10 y/o child (maybe). Height/Sleeves were normal. I'd need a 6 or 8 before even getting close to fitting in the shoulders/bust (and saying I'm a 32 AA would be gracious).

                            I just got mine,a black, and it is too small!!!! The measurements don't come close. I really like the coat and would love to have it in an 8. The 4 is so small across the chest that my daughter can't button it. She wears a 2 in street clothes and those are roomy. What a disappointment. Anyone need to trade?

                              I bought two of these coats, the Cloudburst and the Platinum one. Both are listed as the same size. The Cloudburst fits me well. The Platinum? WAY too small across the bust, I couldn't even begin to button it.

                                I ordered the Platinum and the same thing happened to me, I measured according to fit guidelines and ordered what seemed appropriate--a size bigger actually. TOO SMALL

                                  I think it's pretty clear that the sizing chart was only for the cloudburst and the other light color and that the platinum has a diff chart. I know they said no returns but I'd call them and complain that the measurements weren't accurate.

                                    If you bought the Platnium coat and it was too small there is a reason. The manufacturer put the wrong size label in it. TOTD is having the manufacturer exchange for the proper size!!! The size chart was correct. Great customer service from TOTD.

                                      I ordered the black one in the size my measurements fit..and its at least 2 sizes too big!!
                                      I dropped it off at a tailor and they said they'd try to get it down to an alright size. I guess we'll see in two weeks!!
