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 used to wear a sports bra over my Victoria's Secret bra- I forget which model it is;it's a pretty lacey one, but it seems to hold the best. Anyway, I have now found Jogbras. I can wear just one of these and those puppies aren't going anywhere. My boyfriend was amazed. I told him that I had to try the bra out by jumping around, so he decided to watch- like I need someone to tell me they aren't moving.

    North Hollands are blue.

      I wear a racing back and a speedo extra support. They don't give you uniboob, because they 'seperate' and support. Amazing bra!!!!

      I hate them, because I often go to the barn right after school in my uppitdy bras, and forget, and do the sitting trot. How do you explain what you're doing to the barn owner when he walks in on you shoving them back in?

        <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>Originally posted by Heidi:
        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.

        OMG! I had that same saleswoman about 100 years ago!

        11 or 12, and still a tomboy, I literally had to be dragged by my mother for my first bra, to a place called "Betty's Corset Shop" no less, terrified that one of the boys from the neighborhood would see me, and never again ask me to be the exra player in their touch football games.

        Going into the store was bad enough, then came the "trying on" part. And then the orthopaedic shoes of THAT saleswoman who burst into the dressing room and in front of my mother, performed the exact same "lean/ grab/place routine on me. Only back then, there wasn't much to grab.

        Totally mortified, I couldn't get out of there fast enough, much less carry a Betty's Corset Shop bag in public or walk next to anyone (mom) who did. But my budding football career was saved for awhile....just until I realized boobs and footbal weren't meant for each other.

                  ok I'm a DD It is so frustrating. I have tried 2 bras, a underwire with the sportsbra over it. That worked pretty good. But I must know how to do the vet- wrap or duct tape method. I must try it. do you put a bra on first then tape over it so it isnt against your skin? [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img] Or do you just tape straight against the skin?

                  Details please [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_confused.gif[/img] I must try it!! Anything to get these puppies under control!

                    I put on a sports bra. Then someone takes the vetwrap and starts pulling it TIGHT around me. I turn all the way around and use the whole roll, then put another sports bra over top. Voila, no bounce. But you have to cut off the vet wrap after...carefully!

                        With my boobs strapped down? Not often enough but at least I look good. I used to do this alot more as a Jr. when I was showing Big Eq and it REALLY mattered. Then I usually passed out at the end of the flat portion anyway [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                          Maybe you should consider doing Jumpers, Heineken. Just think, the faster you go, the sooner you get to breathe again! Ride a REALLY fast horse, and you become a blur to everyone watching.

                                Another vote for the Title 9 Sports bras. They are the best. I have several of their "Frog Bras" which I wear all of the time. They're not the most flattering bras out there, but believe me, they eliminate any bounce.

                                Yes, they do give you the monoboob, but I don't mind since I have a problem that no one has brought up yet. Due to open heart surgery when I was a kid, I now have a mismatched set. Righty is on the high side of a C and Lefty is on the low side of a B. When I wear a bra that lifts and separates, the difference in the topography of my chest is rather alarming. Clothes that fit great on the right, sag to my waist on the left. Plus, I find that when I wear a regular bra, most men seem to only talk to my right side unless I help Lefty out with a little extra padding. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                With a bra that creates the monoboob, everything tends to even out and I don't look so bizarro. Lefty is more than happy to share her extra space with Righty. Weird, yes, but it works for me. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

                                  I realize how lucky I am now! Don't throw anything at the screen but I'm a 34A...flat as a boy practically and no kids so they never got stretched out. I'm here to tell you that mammograms when you are so small are very uncomfortable! My husband has complained a few times and hinted that I should take those herbs that supposedly cause your boobs to get bigger, but I flat refused! I think I'll stay this way...
