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!

    I will agree with the pregnancy comment. I've actually LOST weight during this pregnancy, but my boobs have gone up two sizes and show no signs of slowing down. Haven't even foaled yet. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

      Three, every time every ride. I'm a 34 DD. <HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

      HEINEKEN...You (and others here) must REALLY REALLY love to ride in order to endure so much. I can't say I know how you feel but as creseida recommended, you should check out the website: title9sports.com., without further delay.

      In their catalog, they offer one bra called "THE LAST RESORT BRA" #313801. They claim it's the first ever with a 5-barbell (support level) rating,
      said to TOTALLY eliminate bounce....no movement at all, literally! And it's recommended especially for D, DD, and DDD-cups. Comes in white or black...$55.00.

      There are several other kinds with a lower barbell ratings if that one is too much.

      Good luck.

      Though I don't speak from experience

        I need to have some extra $$$ so that I can buy one...I have the catalog here and am all ready but have no funds...Thanks though!!!

          Allright I think I should share my story here...

          Pre-children I was a 36D/DD. After two kids in 15 months and what seemed a life time in mind altering bras I finally got my body recovered from nursing the 2nd child and went to the local under-garment shop for new bras. (This is THE place to go in town to get a good fit by one of a group of lovely southern battle-axes who KNOW all about boobs.)

          The little gray hair lady asked me what size, to which I answered that it had been so long since I'd wore a normal bra I had no idea. We started with a D because that's what I was 'before.' After several trys with no success she said, "Honey I think we need to try a C." I was literally speechless. After a few of my sputtering atempts at communication she patted my hand and told me, "Darling, really it's O.K. this happens to alot of women after babies. I'm sure we can fix you up with a good push-up bra and it will be fine. There just no need to get upset!"

          To which I answered, "You don't understand. I've always WANTED to be a C! In high school I went from a B straight to a D. This is fabulous!"

          So confessions...Being a C is just great!

              Well, not that I thought I'd be posting this, but I am a 38- 40 DDD (F). I came thisclose to having the reduction surgery, but just couldn't go through w/ it. I feel like I'm playing God, there's nothing 'wrong' with them, they're just tooo big. But boy, I sure would like to be even just a 'single' D cup.

              I where two bras (underwire only) every day, all day, at work and of course during riding.

                Years ago I was in the lingerie department at Saks in NYC. I found myself wandering around in the lingerie dept., and no, not like Winona, and before you could even utter the words, "Lejaby", I was in the dressing room with an armful of bras.

                As I was trying on the first, the saleswoman, an older, chic, aggressive woman, burst into the dressing room and chastised me for not knowing how to 'place' myself in the bra; according to her, it wasn't about the size of the bra as much as it was about placement of the mammaries in the cups. Bowing from the waist, she proceeded to show me how it was to be done. Dissatisfied with my feeble attempt, she grabbed the suckers and placed them where they, apparently, should be.

                I bought three bras. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                    I can ONLY wear Wacoal for everyday. They are EXPENSIVE but worth every penny and they make my boobs look nice under clothes. Now, for going out and looking like a "hoochie", I have a few "special" bras that I brought back from France that are wonders of modern engineering...

                            Ever since the 3rd kid...I can't find a steel bra that works!

                            HELP....I hate 'em.

                            Would love to have them DOWNSIZED!

                              I WAS a 34 D. I wore two bras when I rode. I got much bigger when I was pregnant.

                              After breast reduction surgery, I now need only one bra to ride. Personally, I was disappointed that the surgeon didn't make me even smaller. (He removed three pounds of stuff.) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                              Could never figure out why anyone in their right mind would want to make them bigger. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]
                              People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually from a non-linear, non-subjective viewpoint - it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly... timey wimey... stuff.

                                  I can't agree any more, who on earth would want a LARGE chest?

                                  I know that I should be happy for what I was gifted with, but let me just vent for a second... "IT SUCKS!"

                                  Albeit, I'm young (oh okay, I'll tell 16 to be exact) and I have a :clears throat: large chest, well, pretty large, perhaps a 42D. Man oh man, it stinks.

                                  I can not wear 'regular' bras now, I fell in love with 1824's no bounce/minimal bounce bras.. never get me to trade for anything. Granted, those puppies have to be washed in hot water then stretched over to hold in place and not move..

                                  I was thinking about the surgery, going down to a medium C it would be so much nicer than to have to deal with what God gifted me with...

                                  I gave up on the sports bras.. they stretched out to much. All I can say is that thank god I am an eventer, those body protector things do a great deal of "quieting" them down.. ie: they remain stationary.

                                  I was looking into the reduction surgery, but it will not be covered by insurance and it's another $5,000+/- that I could be using to go to college with.

                                  Oh well, I've got to just learn to live with them. I wouldn't mind giving mine away at all, it would be a pleasure!

                                    I'm trying to summon up the courage to explain to Hans that it's not exactly a Cindy Crawford-esque mole that sags on my forehead. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]

                                    For all who're contemplating a reduction surgery, I know two women who've undergone the procedure and ya know, like planter warts, they grow back.
