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!

Until you posted -- they are on the way -- so THANKS!
    I dont get the discount codes from Horze, but rather an email from Equine Specials <newsletter@equinespecials.com>
    And honestly, I dont even know how I started getting them. But they must be affiliated with horze since they are they only offers I get.

    Whats even odder is that I get all my "horze" emails at my gmail account but got this discount email sent to my outlook work email???

    But not complaining, cuz its still awesome!

      Did you go with the same size as your other helmet(s)? I like the shape...

        Damn you all. My barn renovation is still weeks away from being done, and I wasn't planning on building the tackroom within it right away. Maybe a spring project kind of thing. But, now that I have box chock full of saddle, blanket, and helmet racks on its way to me from Horze, well, I guess that tackroom's gonna have to get built sooner rather than later. LOL

          enablers....
          y'all horrible.

          even though i can't get my saddle pads (price z or whatever they are, cheap but nice!),... and even though i've talked myself out of buying a glorified person blankey (ie fleece cooler that the horse doesn't need, which would end up in my car all winter long),... now i want more of the denim breeches. They sent me the wrong ones in my return last month (pretty sure i ordered the self knee patch, but got the full seat) and though i love them, i kinda want the self patch ones now!!

          edit...
          sigh. the blanket IS only $24 with the coupon now... http://www.horze.com/Horze-Base-Flee...,en_US,pd.html

                I was thinking about the denim breeches, but they looked like low rise...are they?

                  They aren't low rise on me. I don't have to worry about a gap between my shirt and jeans when bending over, or scaring anyone when I sit down, so they're great in my opinion lol!
                  I think I'm going to have to give my bank account a breather and skip this sale.... heavy sigh. Which means I should stop reading this thread, because I've never been known for my incredible self control.

                    I have the Silvia denim knee patch (not full seat) ones and they aren't low on me. More mid rise, I think, as they aren't as high as the reg rise Ariats I have.

                      WINTER1 isn't working for me. Is it working for anyone else? I'll FIND something to buy if it is.

                      OK. Nevermind. It's working. OK $30 helmet. Let's see what else I can find!

                        I migrate between a 7 3/8 and a 7 5/8 depending on the maker. So, I went solidly in the middle for a 7 1/2. It looks like it's a low profile helmet. I'm hoping it's more oval, as I normally wear a long oval IRH but for $30, it's worth the risk. If it doesn't fit, I can toss it in with the lesson program helmets.

                          What does the code apply to? I tried to place an order and nothing was taken off.

                            It should apply to everything. Sometimes you have to fiddle with it. But it should work. Write it in the code box and then hit enter.

                              Code might be case sensitive too. I had no problem with it.

                                  This was perfect! I needed some things for my Secret Santa and I was in desperate need for a cooler for my boy. But then I found out its free shipping over $75. So I ended up with a new saddle pad and a cheap schooling bridle.

                                  I would have much rather left with the $50 worth of stuff I needed instead of the $100 worth of stuff I bought. But I suppose if I had paid full price for the stuff I needed I would have spent $100 for full price anyway, right?!?

                                      I'm with you. Oval headed people unite! I need something that won't fall side to side.

                                      I had trouble with the code at first, but then it worked. Helmet, extra winter blanket, some of the great dressage pads I ordered before I'm going to get more of, and bits and things. JUST in case. I have my own little tack room set up in my garage.

                                        Well I broke down and ordered tonight. ordered thinsolate gloves for my daughter, a funky hat that she wanted, a quarter sheet, one of the base fleece, and a couple of headbands. REally wanted to get an avalanche rug for my boy but even at 50% off it just isn't in the budget right now. Maybe next year. Looking forward to getting package!
