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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums’ policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

      OK guys, just do what I do and you'll be fine Just get a bottle of cream foundation and pile as much on your face as possible, that way if it melts a little you have a back up. If you put enough on your skin REALLY evens out. Problem is that your eyes get lost a little, get a super thick shaprie and line your eyes, that won't come off anytime soon so you can wear it for 3 day shows! Oh, and don't forget the glitter, judges love GLITTER. If you wear enough you leave a trail behind you like a fairy.

      Seriously, the goal of make-up is to accentuate your natural features and even tone. I have horrible redness and acne, I'm using mineral make-up that is helping to even it out, I believe it's working nicely. Also, the make-up absorbs oil. So it's not just cosemetic, it's safety as well (I once blinded someone with the shine coming off of my face)

          I used to be all about wearing my "street" makeup in the show ring, but now I value my sleep too much.

          The cosmetic counselor at the Benefit counter introduced me to their bronzer "Hula" and it works great for showing, for me! I have dark hair, blue eyes, and very fair skin. I used to look like a ghost showing, but now, I apply the bronzer all over my face in a circular motion with a powder brush, then apply slightly heavier on eyelids with the brush it comes with in an upward slant. Two layers of Maybelline orange tube black mascara and then a light pink lip gloss (or just chapstick! Whatever is handy!) and I'm doneeee!

          I don't look like a ghost, but I don't look like a raccoon, either.
          I like to think I look work-woman-like and ready for anything!

            Another vote for mineral makeup - I use mineral powder and I love it. I also use TruBlend foundation pretty minimally. I'm very pale but I get blotchy when I exert myself (suuuper attractive) so I wear makeup when I compete. I also do a downplayed version of girly-me - instead of liner I use a very skinny brush to put a swipe of brown on my lower lashline, and then dk brown or black waterproof mascara

              I kept quiet throughout the mascara thread debacle..but I decided to chime in now. I always thought that the women's lib movement empowered us all to be who we wanted to be. If make-up makes you feel better about yourself, then go for it! If you don't like to wear make-up, then don't. But don't bash people who are simply asking for advice. To each her own.

                Check out Smashbox... I do a lot of ultra-long-haul flying and my makeup looks just as good after 30 hours of travelling as when I put it on. I've also gone to work with it on and it stands up to 8 hours of baggage handling in the summer!

                Primer - Photo Finish Foundation Primer
                Eyeliner - Jet Set Waterproof Eyeliner
                Eye Shadow - Waterproof Shadow-Liner Duo
                Eyebrows - Brow Tech
                Blush - O-Glow Intuitive Cheek Colour
                Lips - O-Gloss Intuitive Lip Gloss

                It's pricey stuff but it lasts forever and you can usually find good deals on kits at places like Sephora, QVC, Shoppers Drug Mart, the Shopping Channel etc...

                  I don't see the problem with wanting to look attractive at a horse show instead of looking like a dirty sweaty hobo. It's all part of the overall picture

                  Okay so liquid foundation and concealer. Depending on how shear it is or how your skin is, get either a translucent powder or a powder the same colour as your foundation (whatever makes your skin look best). This will settle the foundation and make it last the day. Get a dark brown mascara with a wand like the 2nd from the left http://www.splendicity.com/makeupmin...cara-wands.jpg so mascara is light. Do your top lashes so they look normal, just a bit darker and then you do your bottom - wipe the wand off a bit so you don't have too much mascara on it for the lower lash line. You can leave a faint amount on your lower lid to make a nicer liner and maybe get a dark brown pencil to clean it up (only faintly apply it to the midpoint of your eye and not on your waterline. Line your waterline with white liner to make your eyes look bigger. Get a peachy blush and apply it on your cheeks and groom/fill in your eyebrows. a simple beige eye shadow is sufficient. You pretty much want to look natural and simple. This is basically my day-to-day look it takes 5 minutes and looks awesome I wouldn't recommend lipstick/gloss nobody is going to care what colour your lips are and I find it always detracts from the whole natural thing. Just apply chapstick

                  For the stuff I use:
                  Foundation - Covergirl TruBlend Liquid make-up, Covergirl powder and concealer for translucent powder the Revelon is my favourite
                  Eye shadow - Mac or covergirl
                  Mascara - Mac, Covergirl, ancient Marks and Spencers Autograph mascara
                  Eye Liner - Mac, lavera, Maybelline
                  Blush - Maybelline and Mac
                  Eye Brow 'filler' - Revelon powder and estee lauder

                    glad the nastiness on this thread has dissapeared!

                    any suggestions for a good waterproof eyeliner? i'm using some maybelline stuff in a twist-up tube now and i hate it. wayyy too soft and the consistency makes it super hard to draw a nice thin line, and i can't sharpen the tip like a regular pencil. so it ends up going on in a huge thick streak and i end up wiping half of it off to make it look good. it's waterproof, but almost not worth the huge pain it is to put on!

                      Most of my rides were only technically correct and flowing if one was judging saddlebronc rides. Plus, I'm young, single, and only rode in the warm-up rings, I wasn't worried about judges, I was more interested in the boys there who actually knew what a hock was.

                      Another vote for mineral makeup here! Its a little pricey, but I also reccomend Mary Kay. One of my trainers is a salesperson and wears it herself, and even after riding 4 or 5 colts, she gets off and looks just like she did when she got there that morning. It looks totally natural and yet it doesn't budge.

                        Caradino, try the smashbox Jet Set liner, it comes in a pot and you apply it with a brush so you can choose how thick a line you want. I can even wash my face with soap and it will still stay on until I use makeup remover!

                          Yes as a radical feminist from way back, I have always used makeup. I marched with the women who flamed everyone for wearing makeup, and thought we should be radical everything, yet they chose to make the rules for all of us who wanted equal pay for women. Wear whatever makeup you want to, I like Bobbie Brown but mostly use self tanner which gives a nice bronze glow that fades gradually but doesn't rub off (long gone are the tanning creams that turned us yellow.) (and I was a charter member of the Georgia Hamilton beach tanning club!)

                          Wear what you want and what you like, and if that helps you feel more confident, go for it.

                            MAC fluidline is the best, but should you not want to spend $14 plus a brush (do get the MAC ladies to give you a lesson on different ways to apply if you go this route, they are awesome!) then I fall back on the Covergirl line exact. It is liquid, but you can hold it more like a pencil to put it on. Not waterproof like the MAC, but pretty long wearing.

                              thanks for the suggestion! liquid liners scare me a little, LOL. and i had to run out on lunch to CVS before i read the replies, so i picked up some Revlon colorstay liner... it was on sale so i figured i'd try it and be none the worse if i hated it! i also looove the colorstay eye shadow, nice colors and stays on through EVERYTHING. hopefully the liner goes on like my regular non-lasting pencil but is more life-proof. i'll let y'all know.

                                      Gray haired over-weight, but cute guy

                                      Lostfarmer,

                                      I love your photo of your driving horse. so I am going to venture a guess that you might actually want to know. The best advice I can give you is go to a very good department store and tell them that you would like help for an outdoors photo shoot and tell them the aproximate distances for the distance to the judge.

                                      I did make-up for TV for men as well as women, and there are things that can make a man look better, too. It is better to have an appt to have the
                                      best make-up artist work with you. Take your bowler and your coat and stock so she/he sees what the contrasts are. You can look slimmer and younger and altogether better. Illusion is everything as we use to say in the ad biz. Good Luck and enjoy yourself. Pampering is a wonderful thing!

                                      We did have to remind the beginner news anchors to wipe the "suntan" off brfore they left the studio. Too obvious for real life, great for studio cameras...
