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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

Cell phone holder for riding?

    Another vote for cheapo yoga pants/leggings/tights with pockets, especially now that all front pockets on all jeans are about an inch and a half deep.

    My favorites at present are some New Balance running tights I got at TJ Max for a pittance, and several found at Aldi for 12.99. One of the Aldi leggings has a back waist zipper pocket as well that would work for money, a key, ID or such.

    All are extremely comfortable to ride in and except for the absence of knee patches look exactly like pricey riding tights. There's a gazillion generic options on Amazon as well.

      I carry my phone in a stout, simple leather case on my belt. I made the case myself but they are available in kit form from Tandy Leather and made up from many sources.

          This was based off a huge topic I opened in a tack discussion group back in January. There were some great options, but this was by far the best choice.

          THANKS! I just rode with the Horse Holster the other day and HATED it. I have tights with a leg pocket for my phone, but also have a couple of other belt loop breeches with small or no pockets. I just ordered the Baker one.

              So crazy. Someone else was just asking about cell phone holders in another forum and I really wanted to share this product but could not for the life of me remember the name of the product. Hope you enjoy. I find it to be very useful anytime I don't have a vest pocket to work with.

                I recently picked up a Fusion Belt to try for riding (initially intended for trail riding, but has become my everyday ride companion); it's basically a very low profile fanny pack haha. It has 2 zippered pockets and is soft, elastic-y material that sits nicely around the waist without any discomfort while riding. During the summer it was nice to have something to hold my phone for music, etc while riding without having to shove the phone down the waist of my breeches!

                Once you have a large phone in the pocket, it's obviously not going to be as low profile anymore, but it has never been uncomfortable and I don't even notice it when I'm riding.

                  I use the Horse Holster because I’m weird about having my phone near my organs It is kind of weird on your thigh, but I prefer it to around my waist or especially near the bra area.

                    I bought a belt style phone holder for running/work out at TJ Maxx for about $8. I bought a 2nd one for riding. It has an elastic belt, and fits a big phone with room for extras like tissues I allergy season or a car key etc.

                      I was very excited to buy the Baker Govelope from Giddyup Gear on Oct 2 and received my order confirmation. It said I will receive notification when the item ships with free 2 day shipping. I have not received any further communication from the company. Emails to the owner and the general information email address for an update have gone unreturned and phone calls get sent to voicemail. The product I ordered now says Sold Out.

                      I opened a dispute with PayPal. Maybe the company will respond to me there? If not, I guess I can either get my money back by escalating to PayPal for their decision or going through my Bank to dispute the charges.

                      https://giddyupgear.com/products/govelope-pro

                      At any rate, I don't recommend anyone purchasing from Giddyup Gear. If the shipment was delayed or the item became unavailable for some reason, I would expect communication from the company about it. I would love to support a fellow horse person but their customer service is quite lacking.

                          I love my Horse Holster. Didn't at first. I think the way it was marketed at the time, I was supposed to wear it on my thigh, which didn't work well at all, The thing constantly slid down; riding or walking. So I moved it to the top of my calf and over my tall boots or half chaps it stays perfectly in place. Have used it on hundreds of trail rides and even while schooling cross country. I usually have a pair of readers in there too. Putting it at the top of my calf makes it super easy to access. Highly recommend.

                          I know some people who carry their phones in either a pommel or saddlebag and if you come off, and the horse takes off, bye-bye phone.

                            I love my riding tights that have pockets at the front, I can stick my phone in there and play music while I'm riding (has been helpful at getting my blood up to be confident enough to canter around in the big pasture since i'm a wuss now). I'll need to find something else to use as it gets cold though, I don't think the tights will be warm enough to ride in the winter. I have the horse holster but it drives me crazy. Might have to try it on my calf though.

                              Do. It drove me nuts as well when I first got it. I even reviewed it poorly on their website initially, specifically for that reason - that it was a poor fit to wear on your thigh and did nothing but slide/migrate down.

                              But then I thought huh, and put it at the top of my calf, over my my tall boots, and voila! Problem solved. I am now very happy with it and will replace it once it has worn out. I've had mine a number of years now and the velcro has held up quite well both for the cover and on the strap.

                                Do you just clip it to the top and wrap the strap around your boot?

                                  No, I don't clip it to anything. I just wrap the strap snugly around my leg, over my boot/or half chap, and let the velcro do its thing. It stays very securely put.

                                        Wow. I just realized my habit of stashing my phone in my bra is pretty ghetto (summer boob sweat/inconvenient in winter). Looks like it's time to up my game.
