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!

  • Monogrammed Folding Chair as Gifts/Prizes

    Anyone know where to get a folding director/deck chair with custom monogramming? I know some shows/associations give them as prizes, having seen monogrammed ones at trials.

    Like these:


    I have Googled lots but can't find a site that customizes. But I've seen them at trials! Would like to purchase a couple for personalized Christmas gifts. I admit I want one for myself, too with a solid back like the first link as they seem more supportive for my bad back than the slouchy bag chair.

    Look up Brandt Blanket Company on Facebook. They have some really nice things!

      This company has made all our halters for a few years now and they are very, very nice ones and the stitching very good.
      Here is their chairs, I have not seen them in person.
      They may have other models, if you ask them, they will get you whatever you want, or you may like some other personalized product better:

        Buy or order the chairs you like, take off the back piece of fabric and take it in to a local monagramming shop to have done. Most can make a unique design for your gift, farm or show chairs, that will be very nice looking. Then you put the fabric back on the chair again when done.

              Schneiders, or Dover or Smith Brothers if you can handle their shipping rates. I ordered about ten chairs from Smith Brothers last year for year end awards (not monogrammed - I have a friend who does that on the side for me) and I ordered them out of their sale catalog for $29.99 each but it was an additional $10 shipping each, on top of their regular shipping cost. Still came out to about the same as what other places charged, but only because I got them on sale.
              It's not about the color of the ribbon but the quality of the ride. Having said that, I'd like the blue one please!

                Thanks for the info

                I didn't realize the catalogs sold them (I put a mail-stop on them). Thanks for the info!

                Sounds like the most economical and varied choice would be to purchase the chair I want and find someone to monogram it. Would those mall kiosk places do it?

                Also, would a chair with a solid back like this be impossible to monogram?


                • #9
                  Anything that slips off can be mongrammed and I am thinking that Coleman aluminum chair has a slip off back since the seat slips off (or looks like it). But 60 is a little high PLUS monogramming and shipping.

                  You can find them local if you look, take the back off and to a good local place-most award supply and engraving places can help you find somebody if they don't so it.

                  It's just clip art downloaded to a drive or tape and loaded on the embroidery machine. NBD. BUT, they won't be able to do them while you wait, depending on your design it could take 15 to 40 minutes per item and there will be some already ahead of you. Have to leave it, usually for a week or so. Would not pick a mall kiosk over a long established business.

                  Some places dawdle a bit so calling regularly is a good idea. Prices usually are per character or can be based on the total number of stitches in the design and usually don't get a price break until you have at least a dozen of the same thing.

                  You can usally add a "name drop", adding the persons name, at a real reasonable rate since it's minimal stitches and they have the "templates" right there and use them all the time.
                  When opportunity knocks it's wearing overalls and looks like work.

                    Places that make shirts can and will do this as well since they usually have a monogram machine.

                      Yeah but...some tee shirt places do not have the heavy duty needles and maybe extra width machine to do canvas or heavy fabrics which is why alot of light weight shops don't take horse blankets either.

                        Here's a link to the ones I bought:


                        Currently $40 + $10 shipping. They may be in the closeout or coupon sections for cheaper. The back actually has a little bit of padding to it, so the girl who embroidered them for me had to cut the stitching to pull the padding out to do them and then sew the seam back together.
