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!

    That pink is garish. The green is acceptable by comparison.

      Oh, my. Well, American Apparel is making riding pants now , so maybe some hipsters could throw it all together and wear it on the street.

        Haha I have a pink herringbone fabric I'm dying to make into a hunt coat just to see the look in my trainers face. She's not a pink fan...


        • #5
          Oooo, I LOVE the pink one! Anything to break out of the "same old same old" in the horse show world. I think it's fun!

            One of our local shows has a Breast Cancer show where they donate all the proceeds to Susan B Coman... They paint all the jumps pink and encourage people to wear pink. The hunter riders generally just wear pink ratcatchers,but some of the jumper people go all out.

              What? No takers? I don't know why it is that people are conservative when it comes to the show ring. I think it would be cool to see someone do something new and different. Besides, in jumpers who would even care? I do think the pink would look best on a blonde riding a palomino or a brunette riding a black or dark bay.... Maybe a dark gray horse? Someone get it and show us the pictures!!!

                That would be the ONE time the pink coat would be a good idea.

                  I personally like the coat it's self and it would look great on my dark brown/black gelding but Im afraid he and I need a lot more work before we can wear something that will make us stand out THAT much!

                    I LOVE it! I would never wear it in the ring but can imagine wearing it out. It's gorgeous.

                      Wow they have some interesting coats on ebay!

                        For 200$? I wouldn't LOL. If it was like 100$... maybe... =D

                          i thought i'd seen it all when i saw the pink or neon green saddles. i'd never dreamed it possible that we'd really see pink hunt coats.. wow. *face falls into keyboard*

                          the green isnt too terrible, it's not my taste but dont some of the olympic teams wear coats with a similar green hue? germany, or maybe ireland or something?

                            I think it's purty :P. I would love to wear it with my light breeches and black boots. The horse I ride is dark grey.... We would be '2 Fresh' for the hunter ring.. lol


                            • #15
                              I prefer the purple one Peter Leone used to wear, but I think pink would be fun to wear in the jumper ring -- Of course, I'm one of those crazies who thinks we should all be wearing polo shirts ... even in the hunter ring --

                                I kinda like the green one. But the beige pocket would be gone! Not sure if i would wear it in the show ring though.

                                  I actually really like it haha! I think its nice with the black accents. It would definitely be a stand out.

                                    I'd totally wear it in the jumper ring...but it's a bit pricy (or I'd be bidding on it now...). But,hey, I'm the girl with the pink sparkly bridle from the tackaholic thread...and if you look at my profile pics, you'll see that I have no shame and minimal fashion sense

                                      How do trends start? Someone who is winning starts wearing /using something different. Just one person who wins regularly needs to start wearing this coat.... Soon everyone will be in pink!!!- (at which point it will be time for a new trend). I hope not me though, don't think that pink would go with my chestnut girl. Things definitely change. Just think, what were we wearing 40 years ago, 20 years ago, and what will we be wearing 20 years from now?
