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!

        You clearly need to stop twerkin' it so hard in the school ring. Disgusting. You're going to get a reputation if you keep doing that.

              There's even several people in the background walking around in breeches and collared shirts.

                  I think the gal on the cover looks great. But since I'm not buying any fun stuff from tack shops anymore (my most exciting purchase lately was "aw crap, I thought I had another tube of Equimax in my car") I use tack shop catalogs to admire other people's pretty ponies. I can admire pretty girls at the local Starbucks, though, admittedly, I'd get a much deserved talking to if I stared.

                  I would so buy a Canoe You shirt!

                      Dover just kills me, there "Models" are models, not riders, and they look skinnier all the time, At least BOB uses riders in many of the shots.
                      Plus do YOU look that good when at the barn?? I know I did not.

                        LOL so funny...

                        I saw that catalog and my first thought was - oh they are trying to copy Animo breeches with a cute detailed pocket....

                        For the younger crowd probably.....

                        Now for the real sexy riding apparel you need to see the Animo ads -

                          Those breeches have been around for years. I own 2 pairs myself. I guess that makes me a grade A slut.

                            LOL I guess Animo copied them... I have never seen the jean fancy pocket breeches..... I actually think they are cute but I don't personally need to bring attention to something that already gets too much attention on its own...

                              I was being silly with my "hooker" comment up above, of course. Not the cover so much, but a lot of the things in these tack catalogs and stores these days just gross me out--they look like a "Juicy Couture" truck collided with one from Ralph Lauren and the wreck mixed cargo.

                              Yeah, I'm an old-school fuddy-duddy who believes the barn should be a pretty sexless place except for mares in season; if only because there ARE so many impressionable young kids there. A few of the "new styles" I think are trashy:

                              FITS breeches look like a bonobo's butt. Just weird. You want to draw eyes to THAT? Low-rise with muffin-top speaks for itself. Ditto the bum-crack out the other side. While I realize these Animo jackets are comfortable over a big fence, they drape just horribly (yes, I tried one on) and that's beaucoup wampum to pay for, basically, polyester.

                              Huge, blingy "crests" like Joules et. al. look like they belong on a hip-hop star and are a self-parody of traditional dressing. Even worse are jeans/breeches with what looks like tattoo decorations embroidered in gold.

                              Who EVER got the idea of crusting up browbands, spurs, stirrup irons even with colored rhinestone crystals? Ewww . . . looks like my grandmother's reading glasses from Wal-Mart. And there is NO ONE, I mean NO ONE over the age of puberty who really enhances the landscape on horseback sporting a hurts-the-eyes print, shrunken polyester tank top.

                              You'll find a lot of this dreckomania on Dover's "Closeouts" page--for a REASON.

                              Flame me, I'm Teflon!

                                I guess I'm a fuddy duddy too. It isn't the clothes, it's the pose and the come hither and canoe me look.

                                I thought I was getting a western girlie magazine. Haha

                                Give me a cover shot of a big, bay TB jumping or galloping. That will get me to crack open the mag instead of dumping it in the trash.

                                      Some people are catching the sex vibe and others aren't. Your posted pic just looks like all the thousands of others at shows jumping their horses in english gear. Definitely no sexing it up noted.

                                        OMG, I love my Goode Riders I think pose like that in them. It doesn't LOOK like that, but it feels like it.

                                        The super wide waistband squishes the belly and the muffin tops. It makes me feel all meerrooww.
