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!

  • Good T-Shirt for riding

    Most of you know that I can't ride in any old t-shirt. I ride in riding tops AKA t-shirts made just for riding. There is a life is good store near my house and they are having a sale. I got the Good Tech Harmony Tee for $18 orginally $35. So if you are like me and hate riding in any old t-shirt then I reccomed this (NOT trying to advertise just letting you guys know). Here is the link http://lifeisgood.com/storeplus/stor...-Tech-Tees.asp, scroll down to bottom of page.

      Well, just wait for the thread where iheart tells us that she can't afford a truly NECESSARY riding suply because she spent all of her money on fancy schmancy riding tees.

      iheart, I realize that you're young and may lack the shopping experience of us slightly older folks, but just because something is on sale does NOT mean that it's a deal. As far as I can tell, the shirt you bought is a basic 100% polyester fitted tee for girls. REI has a wicking polyester shirt for girls in the Super Clearance section for half off of $15.83, meaning it costs $7.91 once you put it in the online shopping cart. And if you pick it up at an REI store rather than have it shipped to you, you won't pay for shipping either. THAT is a deal.

      Of course, it's not a deal if you don't actually need it.

            my mom bought it for me and she and i both think it is not a bad idea to have more than 1 riding t-shirt. why i don't ride in any old t-shirt- i sweat a lot and i hate that cold clammy feeling you get from a wet cotton t-shirt, i seriously sweat a ricdulous amount when riding if it hot out so it is worth it to me to have mosture wicking fabrics. in terms of nesscary horse things i have everything i need for now.

              Why the heck not? My "riding tops" are the "baggy shirts" I wore in the 6th grade to be cool, I am 23 now and they are ugly but they aren't so baggy anymore because I obviously grew since I was 11 LOL. Most of them have an OP design on them, some a Nike swoosh.

              I wish my life was so simple that I could worry about "riding shirts" vs. 'non riding shirts". And no, not even at 17 (that's how old she says she is) was my life that simple/shallow.

                I have plenty of "riding t-shirts". They're the ones that have stains that won't come out, have gotten bleach splashed on 'em, or have gotten too old and ugly to wear in public but still have plenty of wear left in 'em.

                And I don't think anyone finds wet, clammy clothes pleasant. But then, I don't have a parent buying anything for me, either. I'm lucky that way!

                Seriously, as long as I have a decent sports bra to keep the girls from beating me about the face and neck, I couldn't care less what the t-shirt looks like! But then, I'm older, and appearances don't mean as much to me as they do to you young'uns.

                The horse however, is always dressed to the nines, and groomed to within an inch of his life!

                      Wow, I wish my parent's would buy me "riding shirts". Just today my mom said she is tired of buying fly spray...it would only be my third bottle this year. I am assuming you can drive so you are able to get a job, try using only that money and you really see what "real" "riding shirts" are. I am not able to get a job yet and I can't wait till that day so I can decide what to spend.

                      I think most people are tired of her threads because they are always about buying something new. While there are people they work there butts of just to feed there horse and would ride bareback with a halter if they had to. I am grateful that my parents help buy horse stuff for me but I only buy what is needed with a few extra things when I get a "bonus"

                          Well, if it's a case of not liking wet cotton, I'd just get exercise/jogging tops from Wal-Mart instead of spending a fortune on tops from tack shops. But that's just me.

                            My "riding" tops rarely get sweaty because they're slightly too big old T-shirts slit at the throat like a polo, cropped, and the sleeves cut off. The air just flows right thru 'em! Fashionable, well no, but damn comfy. I admit I tend not to wear the skanky things in public, for a lesson or schooling at a show I have a couple of tank tops that look nice with black jods. You couldn't pay me enough to wear a polyester shirt, moisture wicking or not- the poly jods are bad enough!

                                Those are great, aren't they? Really cool/airy and CHEAP. I love those.

                                I also love the coolmax sports bras at Old Navy. They're $5/pop and they're SO comfy, and I am never sweaty when I wear them. LOVE them!

                                Generally though, if you're interested in cooler shirts/coolmax shirts-- just check out the clearance section of Target's sportwear section or Old Navy. I don't think I've ever paid more than $5 for a top or a sports bra, and those are always the first two places I check. Also, at the end of the season (now) GAP outlet often has nice polo shirts for $6.99, I was just in there today and saw some. That's a pretty good price.

                                  Anything that is $1.99 at the Old Navy clearance section. I don't care what it says. The horses can't read and I don't feel bad when they get a permanent booger stain down the front.

                                        IHB, I believe that I'm about the same age as you, maybe younger. I'm 15. Now, when I school, I ride in my boots and half chaps and $25 cotton breeches. When I show, I ride in Ariat breeches, RJ Classics shirt, field boots, and some cheap Devon Aire jacket. Showing is a totally different world from schooling. It's totally normal to spend $100++ on a pair of breeches, upwards of $150 on a coat, etc.. As for schooling, riding in a cheap pair of cotton breeches (jeans if you prefer), half chaps and paddock boots is totally fine. Who GIVES a flying flip what shirt you're wearing? I wear a T-shirt in the spring/fall, tank top during the summer, and a jacket during the winter, all under $10 (except for the jacket, that was like $30 but whatever lol).

                                        Save your money for better things. Honestly, no one cares what brand your shirt is or what it says.
