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!

  • Horze finally available in U.S.!

    The Finnish company Horze is finally shipping straight to the U.S.! Yay!!! No more having to go through out-of-country middle men to buy things! And to kick things off, everything is on sale at 30% off through April and free shipping on all orders through end of March.

    Am I the only one who naturally pronounces horze as whores?

    I don't doubt they have some nice stuff, but I would not want it in big letters across my shirt.


    • #3
      Nope. I read the OP title and thought -- haven't whores always been available in the US?
      ...somewhere between the talent and the potato....

        There are some really cute clothes on the site! Anyone know how the sizes run? It seems like European sizing is always a little bit more accurate (no, American outlets, I really shouldn't be a size small ). But when you click on the sizing chart, it goes to a chart with 4 selections that do not include boots or tops.

            PNW english sizes are 4 bigger so an american 16 is a uk 20. Not sure if that helps.

                Oooh, such pretty patterned breeches. I wonder if the zips in the back pockets would chew up my saddle, though?

                I'm tempted to buy my boy some wild colored fetlock and tendon boots for schooling.

                  I have several pairs of Animo breeches with zip back pockets and haven't ever had them touch my saddle, let alone hurt it. So I think you'd be fine (not that I'm trying to enable you or anything ).

                      I have a turnout blanket from them for my stallion that I absolutely love!!! Not only does it fit him (which is hard) but it has held up for two seasons now (I have never had a blanket make it through even one winter, not because he tears them up but he is normally wintered out with the colts and they just play hard) It still looks great. Now I just have to figure out the sizing and everyone will have one for next year!!!

                        Horze stuff is available in New Zealand and I hate to be a downer but the Horze stuff I've bought and seen has been really not great quality. There's not much of a market for high end equestrian gear in NZ and Horze stuff is even at the lower end of things. Having said that I've never tried their clothes for people, I've only had experience with equine clothing such as coolers, turn-out rugs, rain sheets and brushing boots.

                        Perhaps they only bring a limited selection here, I'll be interested to know what others experiences overseas are with Horze products.

                          Ah. I was all excited with about twenty tabs open on my phone browser.... Then I looked at the sizing chart. Searching for my tape measure now but I don't think they have anything left in my size.

                          Man, bummmmmmer! I was picturing all the nice breeches... Sigh.


                          • #14
                            OK... Anyone know what sizing guide they're actually using on the breeches?? Some, most, are listed as 22-34 which are the US sizes.... I think.
                            If I get a US 34,I'm golden. If they give me some funky euro 34,one leg will fit in the waist.


                            • #15
                              Really - Horze just making it direct to USA???? I have a bit of Horze gear - some years old and not my favourite brand but they do tend to fit.

                              MArengo - Dont know where you shop in NZ but there is a huge market (for a small country ) for hiqh quality stuff. We have a lot of it available to be custom-made . If you are having trouble sourcing good stuff - well Wellington Equestrian, Spurs, Canterbury (and now Auckland) Equestrian and "The Tack Shop" usually have upper-echelon (as well as lower echelon) stuff available. And what about
                              Barry's Place in Pauatahanui?? (Now sadly not run by gay old Barry as he died recently ). That is/was an equestrienne heaven! Rock up with your horse and you and leave fully kitted out with a saddle, bridle, boots (you and pony) rugs etc - and no ordering in as he had every size immaginable readily available.
                              Still Working_on_it - one day I will get it!

                                Sizes and measurements

                                FYI, on the sizing charts for breeches, it gives waist and inseam measurements in cm's. Simply divide by 2.5 to get the equivalent in inches.

                                  Anyone know if they still have that awesome soft shell? Or am I thinking of another brand? I remember it on the affordable soft shell coat thread from a while ago but I can't actually *find* the thread...

                                  ETA: nevermind. Apparently it's still only available in Europe.

                                    I saw this stuff at the PA Horse World Expo... I wasn't impressed with the quality of it.

                                    And the spelling also made me pronounce it like "whores" ... that plus the low quality was a turnoff for me.

                                        I had two horze turnouts I got on sale at an expo - I was NOT impressed with either.

                                        One the front buckle broke off and it ripped at a couple of spots as well - in the first few months of use.

                                        the other was supposed to be a turnout and was NOT water proof at all! my poor boy was sopping wet under it.... I would not buy another one from them...

                                        I do like the fleece sheet I got from them though... but it's not something that gets heavily used either....
