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!

  • Big boobs and riding

    Okay, saw the one about implants and couldn't resist.

    HOWEVER, on a truthful note, do y'all have any extra strappage goin' on up there when you ride? If I remember and am going to do a lot of arena work, I'll put the sports bra on over the regular one.

    Et vous?

      For heavy work, two sportsbras, one regular and one racingback. For lighter stuff, just the racingback. Seems to do the trick for me.

          Though sometimes I forget and wear the regular bra (like if I go riding after work). It works but it can be uncomfortable.

              I'm OK wearing a really good sports bra (there aren't too many that work well). Champion makes a really nice one. At shows, however, when I really want to look "sleek", I tape those puppies up with an Ace bandage.

              BTW, I bought one of those "Minimal Bounce" riding bras once and I HATED it. It gave me total "uni-boob" (where it looks like you have 1 big boob right in the middle of your chest), and the "one big" boob still bounced around.
              My train of thought is running off its tracks!

                Yep, the Champion high impact is the best I've found (36 D). Though on some days, it seems thre isn't anything strong enough.... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_rolleyes.gif[/img]

                      Check out Title 9 Sports. Do a web search. They have a huge selection of styles & types of sports bras. Another D+ here [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                        I use duct tape or vet wrap or both when I'm showing the Eq. It sucks. And it hurts. But at least I get the "no bounce" effect.

                        And damn can I fill out a strapless dress.

                          Ugh, so why would people want implants??

                          I'm naturally a larger-busted woman (and a popular implant size I've been told) and why any one would CHOOSE to be that size is beyond me.

                          I use a Champion something or another. I don't like it, it's uncomfortable but it works.

                          Maybe I'll try the vet rap method!

                            Haven't fund a sports bra that I care for-but never am without underwire.

                              same reason why women with straight hair get perms and women with curly hair get relaxers.

                                When I'm in shape I'm a 34DD, but right now I'm between a 36 and a 38DD; there's a lot to go in those strapless dresses, but it's hard to defy gravity when wearing one!

                                When I ride I wear one relatively new Body by Victoria full coverage bra. By relatively new, I mean it hasn't lost any of it's bracing elastic strength, the back and straps stay put, and generally nothing moves. If all the relatively news are needing to be washed, I wear a relatively worn out and just do a lot of walking, or two relatively worn outs and hope for the best. In all cases, three hooks in the back are the absolute minimum.

                                I just don't like sports bras. Well, I have a nice Champion lycra sports bra that I sleep in, but that's about it.

                                  pregnancy wreaks havoc on your bra size .. I went up 4 sizes, which moved me from ordinary to massive. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

                                  Title 9 has a good collection, including bras that have a lot of support but you don't have to pull over your head. My favorite bra is the Athena by Moving Comfort - no uniboob, and a closure so you can get in and out. Unfortunately, it's discontinued now, but I was able to search the net and find it on closeout (and stock up).

                                    Prekids I was a 36 C. Riding setup is Champion sports bra over hanes sports bra (the kind with cups to prevent the uniboob), every ride every time. They are real and I love 'em but sometimes I suffer (especially after 2 kids and all that that entailed) [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_eek.gif[/img]

                                      Oh I know, it is always greener.
                                      And I used to be one of those who got perms for like, ever!! Now, no way.

                                      What makes it even better is the I'm a 34 but one is a D and one is a C. No lie. I generally buy to fit the bigger side but it makes the other side, well, not right. You know?

                                      Ah, if only I could be a nice B. Oops, that grass is looking green again [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
