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!

  • Best Mascara for showing..

    I hate to wear waterproof mascara..but also hate it when I am sweating like crazy and mine flakes off. What do you use or recommend? I know this sounds silly - but I am one of those people who has invisible eyelashes and even when I don't wear makeup - I will almost always slap on some mascara.

        Sorry, but I point and laugh when I see dolled up faces at the barn or at a horse show. It's a HORSE SHOW. As in, poop and sweat and hair and green slime and snot. Wearing makeup is almost as silly as wearing jewellry.
        Wear nice, clean clothes, put your hair in a hairnet, yes, but for god's sake, don't bother with makeup. If you think you're too pale, pinch your cheeks lightly a bunch of times - it's nature's very own blush.

        And trust me - no judge is going to notice or care if you have "invisible eyelashes".

        Ride on!

          So. Very. Wrong.

          Showing appearance checklist for the sane:

          Horse immaculate, and braided as appropriate.

          Human hair tidily put up (hairnet, or any other successful method for confining hair neatly out of view)

          Clean neat human turnout: shirt tucked in, jacket and breeches that fit, are clean, and in good repair.

          Face clean.

          Minimal / no human jewelry.

          Boots shiny.

          Tack clean.

          I know there are folks and disciplines that go in for makeup levels that resemble figure skating more than soccer, but, geez, who can or wants to worry about makeup when you are sweating and riding and wrangling horses and shovelling poo? Isn't getting away from tedious girly appearance standards one of the golden bonuses of riding as a hobby?

            Jeez people, she asked for a brand recommendation, not whether or not one should wear makeup...Really, that's totally a personal preference thing, and it totally amazes me when people think their opionions on this have anything to do with the question at hand

            To the OP, I don't have any recommendations, but am hoping for some suggestions too - that's why I opened this thread, expecting to find some suggestions rather than posts about how makeup is unneccesary...

              The best waterproof mascara, imo, is Maybelline, with the green top. Blackest Black rocks.

              OMG. "Girly appearance standards"? So because I'm an equestrian I must eschew all femininity? I don't think so. I'll go to my grave wearing my breeches AND mascara. Thankyouverymuch.

                I love Diorshow waterproof. I have sensitive eyes and wear contacts and haven't had any issues with it.

                As far as non-waterproof, I've not found any that didn't leave me racoon-y really quickly.

                I spend HOURS dressing my horse up for a show. I spend HOURS cleaning, pressing, and preparing my tack and clothing. I think I deserve 2 minutes worth of moistureizer, sunscreen, deodorant and waterproof mascara so that I feel prepared, pretty and confident for the show, too. I'm a horsewoman who scoops the poop and cleans and all of that, but hell, I'm a woman who likes to look pretty, too. It's not a crime people.

                  I second the Maybelline waterproof.

                  I'm not 'girly' all the time, but I've been known to ride while *HORRORS!* wearing makeup.

                  FWIW, I never went to an A-rated show without wearing makeup. That would have been like not grooming the horse!
                  Homeopathy claims water can cure you since it once held medicine. That's like saying you can get sustenance from an empty plate because it once held food.

                    Ditto- I wear two things on my face for shows- SPF moisturizer and waterproof mascara. My favorites are Diorshow Iconic and Tarte - Lights, Camera, Splashes. I also tried Urban Decay Big Fatty but I didn't like it. Make Up 4 Ever stays on the fantastic, but I hate the brush.

                      Whenever I wear mascara (and I always use waterproof), I still end up with little black smudges under my eyes where my lashes hit when I blink. Anyone know of a brand that won't do that or what I can do to make it stop? It's just not a good look and I'd like to be able to wear mascara sometimes!

                        Seriously! I wear mascara, perfume and lipstick every day and shovel poop when necessary! Who says girl-girls can't be horsewomen?

                        That said, I have seen one woman at a dressage show who wore so much make-up that I thought it would melt off in the heat. Red lipstick, heavily lined black eyes. Plus, she added these big gawd awful pearl and diamond earring. In a case like that, yes, less is more.

                          There is a middle ground between bare-faced and drag queen.

                          Personally, nothing makes me feel more like me than rockin' a little eyeliner with my muck boots. But that's me

                          Brown mascara will look more subtle than black, and if you want to skip mascara entirely but look more polished, you can always curl your lashes.

                          I find I need some makeup at all times or people ask if I'm ill. That's me and my pale self though. I don't look made up, but it stops people from asking me if I need to lie down. Guess what I'm sayin' is I need makeup to look healthy. I also like to cover up some of the sun damage I've aquired from years of being outside with horses.

                          PM me for further recs...

                            L'Oreal Voluminous Waterproof - grey tube with gold lid. *two thumbs up*

                            Sweatproof, waterproof, won't run, hypo-allergenic, doesn't burn eyes, won't leave black smudges, etc. I use it while at work as well as around horses.

                            You will, however, require eye makeup remover to get it off your lashes though.

                            Costs about $5 for a tube, and you can get it anywhere.

                                Um, no one said, "Don't shower." Clean is great, and highly endorsed and recommended. But 'clean' doesn't require makeup. It really doesn't.

                                Even if I weren't morally opposed to makeup w/ riding sports, I don't understand, short of putting shellac over it, how one wears (largely water soluble) makeup while doing something that seems likely to cause sweating, while wearing white shirts, handling white saddle pads, etc. Just. Seems. Crazy. To. Me.

                                And my sense of my own femininity, ladies, does not come out of a tube of mascara.

                                  Loreal Double Extend......I swear by it!!!! I can wear it to bed and the next morning I can wake up with zero raccoon eyes. Comes off easy in the shower with warm water....nothing left under the eyes when taking it off, it flakes off like feathers!!!

                                    I've never had make-up come off on anything I've worn/handled, but, then again, I use (as I think someone else said) sunscreen (sweatproof, sport, PABA-free) and the waterproof mascara - nothing else save maybe chapstick

                                      Um, I don't know where you saw something about not bathing, but I read every post and didn't see that.

                                      I would venture that none of us think our 'sense of femininity' comes from wearing makeup, Lori. So you're not the only speshul one here.

                                      There's nothing wrong with wanting to wear makeup. You act as if it's the Debbil's Own Evilness to want to wear it, for some reason.

                                      The OP wanted recommendations on a good, waterproof mascara, not a sermon on how she's an insecure tart without a sense of her feminine self if she wears makeup.

                                        Neither does mine but the point is if you don't have something concrete to add to the actual question the OP asked, then why are you posting? Answer the question or move on, its not difficult.
