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!

  • This is why I love this BB...you guys are the greatest! Thank you!

    I did check the Fuller Fillies website, but I didn't see any meltons. I had sooooo hoped! Maybe that's something they would consider looking into making as I would think there could be a decent market for it. If I don't find one, it's definitely going on my wish list for next year. Along with brown field boots and a smart looking cubbing jacket.

    • Finally posting!! (with gratitude)

      Now that I've read thousands of posts over the past few days (my poor bleary eyes!), I wanted to say hello and thank you for so much information and insight. I feel as though I've gotten to know many of you well....like having a new group of riding buddies.
      And this evening I'm heading to a "local" tack shop to check out the Fuller Fillies line, hoping for half chaps to fit my very wide but very short legs (so glad to read I'm not unique there!). It's about an hour's drive, but worth it if I can actually try on.

      • Irideon 3 Season breeches

        Hey guys. I just bought the Irideon 3 season breeches and wanted to give you some feedback. I am typically a size 18 in pants, so I figured breeches *usually* run small - and I may want to layer, so I ordered the 2x (20-22! EEEK). Anyways. I got them yesterday and they are LOVELY. But also a little big in the waist, LOL. It appears that these pants run true to size.

        On the other hand, I also bought Tuff Rider knee patch tights in an XL (16-18) and they were smaller than that. Or else they didn't think that a gal that *BIG* would possibly be curvy, too! I could get them pulled up to the crotch but then they wouldn't go over my comparatively speaking relatively-non-existent A$$. (I am an apple shape.....)

        That's my contribution - thank you ALL for YOUR contributions!

        • SHOW CLOTHES ALERT!!

          The Collection Online store has "plush" show breeches on sale for $100 (typical retail for $224)! They are very similar to TS breeches and I really like the fabric. Sizes 36-42 in the greenish beige!

          They also have quite a selection of plush sizes in RJ hunt coats and shirts.

          I already placed my order.

          • Ladies, ladies, ladies

            Cross your fingers for me; I have a pair of size 34 Pikeur denim breeches on the way! Did a thread last week on fave denim breeches and a kind BBer PT'ed me about a pair that did not work for her, and they are on the way as we speak! My guess is that they won't work yet, size-wise, but the price was so great that they will be waiting for me until I can wodge my fat ass into them (I have been on a plateau re my diet for FOUR WEEKS so it is sure to break any day now).

            You know what would be nice? A quilted barn jacket, not too bulky, with a corduroy collar, in a plush size that actually had a waist and not just a straight line down. Anyone, anyone?

            • Corinne, what about the Horseware Ireland Victoria jacket? I think this is last year's model, if you can find it. Their XL (I have the shell and the zip-out quilted lining) fits me fairly well so it should work for you. Congrats on the Pikeurs...

              LL Bean makes barn jackets but I find most of their things are boxy.

                • Thanks, Twnkltoz!

                  I ended up getting sidetracked on my way to the Massachusetts tack shop that carries the Fuller Fillies line (had to deal with a colicky horse....don't you just love these drastic weather changes??). But I WILL get there soon, and I'll post a report!

                                  No corduroy collar, but nice waist and pockets:

                                  Also, try the regular sizes for more colour options. It sounds like you'll be out of the fluffy sizes soon!
