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!

  • Keeping warm - Under Armour

    This is horse related because I don't have an indoor to ride in and it's FREEZING in MD right now.

    I need to buy more Under Armour. Who's got the best prices right now?

  • #2
    If you're not picky about colors, there's a sale/clearance section on the under armor website that you can sometimes find good deals on. I bought several of their warm-weather t-shirts over the summer for close to 50% off.

      There is an UA factory store in Curtis Bay:


      I haven't been there yet, but the instructors at my gym rave about it! You can also find much cheaper off-brands at Dick's and Target that are just as good. Just layer, layer, layer!

        Is currently having a sale on their website for their winter stuff. I just got a new pair of metal pants for 60(normally 80), a shirt for 60(normally 80), and a sweatshirt for 40 (normally 65). I swear by UA - nothing better.. and yes it's expensive but well well worth the money.

            I also check ebay. I've found a couple sellers who sell various UA items (all new with tags!) on ebay, and have picked up several cold gear mocks for $30-$35!

              Cabellas was having a sale a short while ago, I dont know if they are still, but check out their website or call them..They have the NICEST customoer service people...

                Am I the only one that things UA sucks and is overpriced? I was sucked into the marketing frenzy and tried one of their warm weather mock turtle necks for $45. It looked thick and warm, but I froze out at the farm and it was only 40 degrees out. My $10 thermal underwear from Duofold kicks butt over that. I buy all my warm weather gear from www.campmor.com

                  I think their cold gear (I guess that's what it's called... to wear in the winter) is pretty good... the only problem I've found is that when I wear it under something it bunches up.
                  However, I hate their warm gear (for summer)- I got one that I was told was better than their general heat gear because it had vents on the side. I wanted it for riding and thought it would be perfect. I found that I was actually warmer in it and that I sweat more than I normally would (I already sweat enough!).

                  I'll buy UA if I can find a decent price but can't bring myself to pay $60 for it, even if it is worth it.

                  OP- Depending where in MD you are, the Leesburg Outlet Mall has a UA store in there that has ok prices. I have found that their prices are usually much better than Dicks Sporting Goods or other places like that.

                      Sparky... cuddle duds are great too! I wore one under my show shirt and a polar fleece 1/4 zip for a show on Sunday and it kept me nice and warm.

                        SSSSHHHHH. Don't tell the mods but I'm really looking for it for skiing
                        I do wear it riding and doing barn chores too.

                        Anyhow, I just bought a mock neck cold gear top on ebay. $35.00. Not too bad with free shipping. Need to find another pair of the pants now. I prefer to buy online. I don't like shopping in the stores. Just not a shopper.

                        I also have duofold and cuddle duds. I still think the UA is best for extreme cold.

                          I get my UA knockoffs from TJ Maxx or Marshalls and can normally score some for $10-$15. I found some winter Nike running tights for $17 and they're pretty much the same material as winter riding tights. Great for wearing under full chaps or under winter tights. I have spent the money on the expensive stuff and it's great, but it's even better if it's cheap!

                            Patagonia has its Capilene long underwear on sale on its website for around $20:


                            This stuff has worn like iron for me.

                              There's also an UA outlet at the Prime Outlets in Hagerstown.

                              I've got an UA coldgear turtleneck, and a Champion one from Target that cost less than half the price of the UA. I don't notice any difference between them as far as wear and warmth.

                                Depending on your size, look in the Youth department. I'm about a size 12, but I can squeeze into a Youth XL, and the Youth sizes seem to run $10-$15 cheaper than Womens!!

                                  I just got a t-neck brand new w/tag off e-bay for 15.00. I was rather happy with that.

                                    Hi everyone, have to say, being an instructor who is outside teaching in this and riding for about 8-10 hours a day, the best stuff I ever got was called dermal wear. I wear this under my britches and i'm toasty, the shirts are incredibly warm as well. It was 20 here today and I had this under my pants, down coat and my bogs boots( another thing I couldn't live without!) and I was toasty.

                                      Personally I feel if Im just doing chores or not riding the 2 layer duofold is warmer than UA- which is nice for riding. 20 degrees would be a blessing here today.
