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!

  • Super thin and tacky gloves in white

    First of all, in terms of tacky I am referring to gloves with a little stick to them
    I have peripheral neuropathy, so I lack feeling in my fingers and feet. I am contemplating having a dispensation from wearing gloves. Although gloves are not technically required in dressage, I am contemplating having it put on my dispensation certificate that I am not required to wear them. Because gloves make things look prettier, I was wondering if any of you had gloves or knew of gloves that did not really affect your feel of the reins. All ideas are welcome

    Neumann summer gloves are worth trying on. They are made in unisex sizing. They worn by football players because they are VERY tacky. They come in black and white. Your brace should fit.

      Ahhhh...Thank you very much Whicker. Excellent idea I'm going to be trying these!!

        There is a fabulous product called "Powr'Tac" that is a pressure sensitive spray... it is a lot like the $$$ Saddle-Tite products, but is made for baseball players and found in the bats/gloves etc. section of sporting goods stores. (I found mine at Dick's, $4.95 for a can that has lasted me several years.)

        It is very safe for leather of all types and shades--I dared to use it on the Ancient Passier!

        I would go for very thin deerskin gloves, like golf gloves, for the 'stretch' and feel of them, and then spray as needed.

        While the Pow'rTac will eventually collect dust, hair etc., it 'rolls' off easily when soiled, the way that rubber cement does, if you know what I mean? And otherwise cleans off nicely with Murphy's.

        It is basically what you would use to re-tackify the football gloves too.

        I used a pair of white parade dress (cotton/poly) gloves from work for my last show, no leather, no grippy pimples, nada... sprayed palm with the spray and they were fine.

        You can also spray your reins if you wanted 'extra'. The nice part about it is it's pressure sensitive. You are not STUCK, just sticky. Hard to explain without trying it, but it worked fabulously on the slick-as-glass Ancient Passier seat!

          Along the same lines as pintopiaffe's post, I find that when I condition my leather riding gloves with a little bit of beeswax, they get tacky. Not sure if it would discolor white gloves, though, I've only done it on brown and black.

            I ride every day in the Roeckl Debbie McDonald. They are reasonably tacky with leather reins but are SUPER tacky when I use rubber reins. Also thin and sensitive but durable enough to last me a few months. (I'm very tough on gloves.)

              I posted on another thread but these are my favorites.

              roeckl chester gloves

              Very thin, come in many colors. I have been useing them for years long before you could get them in USA. Found them in Germany and bought a couple of pairs. Now many places carry them.

              They have a nice grip, they do wear out reasonably fast, so when I need a new pair for show, they old pair goes into the use everyday pile. I used to hate gloves now I can't drive without them.

              Don't get them to big.

                Just found a new black Rubber Gloves a few days ago, it can protect my hands from detergents, hot water, over cleaners, ordinary household cleaners, bleaches, dyes, painting, gardening and more.

                  I wear the Roeckl Chester gloves for everyday riding and have white ones for showing. They are quite thin and have a good 'tacky' grip. These are my favourite gloves in over 30yrs of riding. The winter ones are great too!
