Update to Forum Rules: Criminal Allegations

In our continuing effort to provide an avenue for individuals to voice their opinions and experiences, we have recently reviewed and updated our forum policies. Generally, we have allowed users to share their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, trainers, etc. within the industry, and that is not changing.

When it came to overt criminal allegations, however, those discussions have in the past needed to stem from a report by a reputable news source or action by law enforcement or the legal system.

We are now expanding our policies to allow posters to share their own first-hand experiences involving overt criminal allegations, such as animal abuse or neglect, theft, etc., but only if they publicly provide their full first and last name along with the post. We still will not allow anonymous postings alleging criminal activity.

So, a user may now make a specific claim against a named individual or company, but it must be a FIRST-HAND account, and they have to IDENTIFY THEMSELVES. Users have always been legally responsible for their posts, and nothing has changed there, but we want to loosen the reins a bit and further allow the free flow of discussion and information relevant to the horse community.

We are not providing a free-for-all of anonymous rumor-mongering. As enduring advocates for the welfare of the horse, we want to provide a forum for those willing to sign their name and shine a light on issues of concern to them in the industry.

The full revised rules are posted at the top of each forum for reference.

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!

    I love makeup, it's a hobby. I lost a pallette on ebay today that I in no way needed and I'm a little sad about it. It's not a societal expectation for me, it's a pleasure.


    but your comment is hilarious and I love you
    Let me apologize in advance.

      I just use a concealer, powder, and setting spray on the red spots/zits, when it's particularly bad.

      I've had bad acne/lots of scars for 12 years and counting. I don't wear any makeup to the barn anymore. I hate the way foundation makes my skin feel so I forced myself to be more confident. It still is hard some days - and that's when I do concealer/rarely foundation.
      I really like Revlon Colorstay foundation and NYX matte finish setting spray.

        Well I embraced my clown prostitute side, LOL

        Kidding, I just found that part of the comment funny

        What's "sad" to me is that when I was younger I would not go out of the house without makeup. I'm not sure when it started or why, but I was seeing imperfections everywhere. So I even put it on getting up at 4 AM for horse shows, or to run to the grocery store. I just felt naked without it. At the same time, I was really bad at putting it on.

        I'm turning forty soon and it really is only recently I stopped giving and fruitbats about it and the majority of the time I go without now (I get asked if I'm sick a lot, haha). At the same time I've upped my game and finally gotten decent at it and actually find it a fun outlet for creativity, since with the mini-mes I don't get much time for anything creative.

        Figures that the time in my life I was MOST self conscious was also the time I was at my most beautiful and vibrant. Live and learn I guess.

          Basically you mix setting spray with your foundation. I've never tried this hack, but it makes sense.

          Also -- depending on your skin type -- a water based foundation can last longer than an oil based foundation. For setting concealer so that it lasts all day I use IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Pores Poreless Finsh Airbrush Powder -- amazing -- even all over the face.

            For the record, I do wear make-up to the barn for two reasons: sun protection, and to cover past sun damage. Once the foundation is on, it looks funny without at least mascara or lip gloss. I didn't used to wear make-up and there is this phase in my facebook memories when I was first riding where I look like a miami grandma. My face has all sorts of damage still from that period.

            I'm a heavy sweater, but as much sunscreen as possible is my motto, with the hopes that at least a little survives. So I put on moisturizer/sunscreen (cereve), then smashbox primer (this is important for keeping the stuff on your face), then smashbox cc foundation which has 30spf, then the smashbox finishing powder (also important for keeping the stuff on). That sort of locks in the bottom layer.

            My mascara is waterproof and I can't remove the crap if I try. It's the "I can't believe they're real" mascara, by Benefit.

            Then I have sad, homely brows, so I always do my brows if any makeup hits my face - Tarte eye brow mousse.

            If I wear eyeliner, then it's always and ONLY the Stila pen liner, which will in fact stay on after 8-9 hours at work, plus sweating and riding.

            I only wear Urban Decay for shadow, which also is horrible to try to remove. Stays on all day.

            My trainer asked me to do her make-up for a flag ceremony recently because apparently I know something or another about make-up. She said my brows and eye make-up is always spot on when I come from work to the barn. Makeup brands are one of the few things that I am a complete snob about. I only purchase the best I can find.

              I'm kind of fascinated by women that wear a lot of makeup. Especially lately, with all the foundation, the eyebrows are really a thing, and the fake lashes. I can't imagine spending that much time on it and I'm pretty sure I would look ridiculous too.

              I just put on some mineral powder, a little blush, some eyeliner and lately have been using a little of the eyeliner pencil on my brows to darken them a little. It takes all of 5 minutes. But I have super oily skin and I have to touch my makeup up literally every few hours or it all just melts away. I dont know how "full face" makeup would hold up if I were ever to attempt such a thing.

                Most days (work, barn, etc.) I wear nothing but a moisturizer and sunscreen, or my 'intermediate' look. I really enjoy doing my makeup, but not as a regular part of daily life. I keep a full make-up kit in my desk in case I have to go somewhere that matters. Other than that, I do my make-up once a week when we go out for a nice dinner.

                My 'intermediate' look takes ~3 minutes - CC cream, blush stick, eyeshadow stick, brown eyeliner pencil, mascara, lip stain or sheer color/tinted chapstick.

                  Crawling out of lurker-ville to add my 2 cents because I used to be huge into makeup and have gotten decent at getting it to last!

                  I've had 10+ years of cystic acne to deal with that in the last year has disappeared entirely, but still have residual redness/splotchiness. This routine got me through morning rides/lessons (so, sweat city) and then to work for 6-8 hours, and then lots of times, dinners out with the coworkers. Only past tense because my skin has gotten so clear I only do face makeup for 'nights out' now instead of every day.

                  Primer- important before foundation. too-faced hangover primer is my go-to.
                  Foundation- depending on coverage needed, after I stopped breaking out, I've been really into the too-faced peach matte foundation. This has great coverage, and applies nicely and STAYS PUT without melting off. I put it on with a damp beauty blender.
                  Contour- I just swipe some bronzer under my cheekbones.
                  Blush- I use a soft pink on my cheek, starting outward and brushing in toward my nose.
                  Finishing powder- Important here, I much prefer translucent setting powder. Colored stuff rarely matches and always made me orange, also CAKEY. I use RCMA powder, which is super inexpensive also!

                  Finish with some kind of setting spray- The MAC spray, urban decay (if you feel like spending $$$) work well, but nowadays I use the LUSH 'breath of fresh air'

                  I never have melty face when I do this! And, it takes about 10 minutes to do! I have eyelash extensions but rarely ever did more than mascara anyway. Fill in the brows (NYX brow pomade) and voila!

                    I’d welcome a little make up assistance. All around tomboy here…I’m a redhead. I have pale skin. I don’t wear foundation or anything like that but eyeliner and mascara are a MUST or I look dead. I’d really like to find an eye liner that lasts for a long time without smudging and running down my face. I don’t understand liquid eyeliner, it doesn’t work for me, I apply it and must be doing it wrong because it is instantly gone and stings the crap out of my eyes. I’m on a limited budget so I typically buy $6-7 eyeliner.

                    I also would love to wear some type of color on my lips but they get dry and I’d like to try a lip stain if there is one that wouldn’t dry out my lips and make them look flaky. I have exfoliated them

                    So if anyone would like to help this poor 40 something out with a little guidance in the make up department I’d love to hear your suggestions.

                      Liquid eyeliner has a learning curve. But honestly, if you're minimal with makeup I wouldn't do liquid anyway - a good quality one should be fairly long lasting, but with your coloring, frankly I'd go for something a little more subtle.

                      For you I'd do the eyeshadow trick - get yourself some proper primer for your eyelids, Nyx makes a good one that's inexpensive (available at target). Put that on, let it sit a few minutes. Then use an angle brush, and use it with some charcoal or brown eyeshadow, and use that to line your eyes instead of eyeliner. Go minimal on your lower lid For mascara, I like clump crusher (I can't remember who makes it, it's available in drug stores... might be Maybelline? not sure). If you do want to try a different liquid, I'd suggest splurging on something a little better quality than what you'd find for $6. I like Lorac Pro, and find it easily lasts all day for me - but again, learning curve, especially as a 40 something, because you can't follow the tutorials online geared at 20-somethings, in most cases, LOL

                      But really, eye makeup in general really benefits from a primer first. You might find that's all you need to change.

                      For lips, burt's bees makes some nice tinted lip balms - it's not as obvious as lipstick or stain but gives a nice hint of color and has a nice balm consistency.

                        No joke, it lasts ALL DAY and while at the barn. Even in Texas weather. Takes me 15 minutes to apply.

                            I guess to each their own? We all have reasons for what we choose. So long as it makes you happy, and isn't a _chore_.

                            That said, my full routine takes me about 5 minutes. I don't have the talent for falsies.

                              Stila pen liner - it looks like a brush pen and is waterproof, and will stay on all day. Super easy to apply. This is the only eyeliner that isn't a huge pain in the butt.

                              For lip color, Urban Decay makes some really nice glosses, also Tarte has an excellent line of glosses.

                              We have a great article on my work's site that helps you figure out your undertone. I think I'm a neutral. https://www.ranker.com/list/how-to-i...jessica-defino
                              Identify your undertone, and you’ll never look blah again, seriously! Figuring out the tint beneath your skin is akin to selecting the makeup product...

                                Funny because I read through this thread and thought I might be able to find better products that do what I want...never having been much of a serious makeup wearer. I wear makeup but buy it at a regular drug store...nothing cheap but nothing really awesome either.

                                I don't know that it's really societal expectations, since I'm almost 50 and spend enough time without makeup or minimal makeup doing things like running or swimming....people often see me with absolutely no makeup. But there are times when it would be nice to up my game a little, especially evening skin tone.

                                  I swear by my local MAC store. I have one artist I work with, and that's all. Going without makeup at work was distracting, because people focused on how tired I looked, even if I felt fine. I now get compliments on looking put together, and I feel that people take me more seriously with makeup on. Without it, I look about 15 years younger and people ask me if I've graduated high school yet (I have a Masters). I have a full line of makeup and quality brushes from MAC, and I go visit my artist fairly frequently to check in, get more tutorials, and get better and faster at putting on makeup. I've found MAC to be the most helpful place to learn about makeup, hands down. I would explain to your artist what your goals are, and go from there.

                                    Skip the makeup completely! (I realize that is too commonsensical to be taken seriously....)

                                      I put on all of that for work, go ride after work, and then go out to dinner... no problems.

                                      Maybe try a different brand? I use Beautycounter, for what it's worth. But my makeup stays on through it all.

                                        I fear that the application of make up has always been something that I have found to be unnecessary. If you don't like what you see when you look at me, that is your problem, not mine. I find it amazing that females feel the need to paint their faces, and males don't (usually). If a person is an actor on the stage, or a TV newscaster/personality, they you are going to need paint to do these jobs. The previous post mentioning feeling like a painted clown/prostitute hits home with me, when, as a teenager, I was painted by a friend to "help" me conform to society's pressures. I see painted clown/prostitutes everywhere daily. Doubtless, they feel great about their look, and that is what is important, feeling good about yourself. Some of us need paint to do that, some don't. So much easier not to. Plus, after riding in the heat of summer, one can simply remove your helmet and run your head under the yard hydrant's cold water to run the sweat out of your eyes, AND fix your helmet hair all in one step. The look that one achieves with this is the "drowned rat" look, which is so much a part of my reality.
