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!

  • Update Update #9 ISO SuitAbility Hunt Coat Sewing Pattern or Dressage Coat Sewing Pattern . . .

    I've made this coat before, but gave away the pattern. Now I need a new hunt coat and found the company no longer the pattern for sale. SuitAbility is preferred, but Jean Hardy also had a pattern that seems to be more available --will go that route if necessary. Help? Will trace off what I need and return in exactly the condition I received it --or buy it outright.

    I thought I had one (Probably will find it when I hit reply) is it possible that you could go down to the thrift store, buy a semi suitable 1980s womens powersuit blazer that is sort of like a hunt coat and tear it down for a pattern? Or if you are clever with a needle insert the proper gussets to the thrift store blazer to make it into a hunt coat? They are very close and good fabric is still good fabric.
    Will keep looking for the paper pattern but it may have been gifted.

        Guilherme --first thing I did was web-search --no luck except one that was $44 --others have either been listed and sold, or listed as an illustration. I have been in contact with the listed suppliers, and finally with the original creator who no longer prints the pattern. 5 --I will pull apart an old hunt coat that I currently have and make a pattern, if necessary --last resort. But as I said, I've made these before and to get a good result, precision is the key --fabric after years of wear and the stretching as one picks out seams, interfacing, etc causes a loss of integrity (not to mention it would take twice as long if not three times to deconstruct, make a pattern, and then sew it back --but if necessary, I will.

        Meanwhile, ray of hope -turns out the Shadbelly pattern I made up two years ago had a second option of a dressage coat in the same pattern --I plan to contact the woman who has the pattern and see if she'll return it. At this point, that's my best shot.

        Would prefer the hunt coat pattern, however, if anyone can find it.

          If you can't get the Shad pattern back, ebay has it for $18.

          Unfortunately, I don't see the hunt coat pattern on there. Lots of the saddle suit and various western show clothes.

            Thanks LSMarnell! Thank you so much! I honestly didn't notice the Shad came with a second pattern --I did contact the woman I gave the pattern to --she has it and will (hopefully) remember to bring it to the next hunt. Personally, I've fox hunted in frock style coats more than hunt coats --I think they look better on an old lady than a short hunt coat--and at our hunt, I doubt anyone will notice the difference --except for buttons and length, there isn't a lot of difference --since most of us are covered with mud and crud by the end of the hunt, as long as the coat is black, it's all good.

              Found and bought a frock hunt coat on Ebay --if measured correctly, should fit over safety vest --cost was $75 but by the time I bought wool/interfacing/lining, pattern paper, and spent probably 30-40 hours making --it's a push. Question I always ask myself is, "If I saw this at GoodWill, would I buy it?" Answer in this case is yes (but I'd get my senior discount there and be able to try it on.) --- coat is actually a "coachman's frock" has an extra set of buttons, and might be too long --but I can fix both of those if necessary --I am tall though, and if that coats hits anyplace above my polished black patent leather topped formal boots, I'll leave it as it is. As I said, in our hunt club no one is terribly picky as long as the coat is black, colors are on collar (and of course I just gave away a set of collar-colors so will need to remake those or take off another hunt coat). Anyway, thank you for your help --if you do have a SuitAbility Hunt Coat pattern, cherish it. It's not being made anymore and as far as I can tell, was the only game in town except for Jean Hardy whose pattern fits oddly, I think.

                  LSMarnell --I bought the pattern! The hunting frock from eBay did arrive and does fit over the hunt vest. I have an appointment with a tailor to discuss shoulder fit --I may just have to live with wide shoulders to accommodate the safety vest. I continue to agonize over the "potato" appearance wearing the vest under my hunt coat gives. BUT --at Sunday's hunt I separated from my wonderful Will --he almost fell himself, too --terrible footing --and I landed on my back --safety vest protected me from any hurt at all. Remounted and rode the rest of the hunt. So I AM glad I wear it --just wish it looked better --I've spent years working to keep slim --still am --but the vest does add padding. I look at photos of myself wearing it and, honestly, it doesn't look THAT bad --but glad to have the pattern! Thank you so much!

                    Sorry to hear about the unfortunate parting of ways with Will- glad you are OK.
