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!

  • Need halter--Quinlin's "small" yearling size? Also in-hand yearling quest.

    I am trying to figure out a halter for L. She has a petite head and tiny muzzle. It looks like Quinlin's offers a small, reg. and large yearling size. Anyone familiar with these? Thoughts on the sizes? She is going to be one this summer. https://quillin.com/jshop/product.ph...d=1039&xSec=30

    I am also debating about the turnout halter vs. the sale halter. Obviously, the sale halter is triple stitched and fancier, but she is a growing girl...

    -----------------------------

    Second question: I may take her and show her in-hand some this summer (dressage breeding). My understanding is that bridles are optional for yearlings? She won't even be one-year-old yet at some of them, am I ok in a halter or not?

    I only buy Quillin halters and they always seem to run quite big to me. The Quillin's people are very helpful, though, and if you call with measurements they can guide you in the right direction.
    As far as DSHB shows you are definitely fine showing a yearling in a halter.

      Quillin halters are typically sized pretty large (I have owned one for all my horses for the past 10 years). My 15.1hh Hanoverian mare and 14.1hh Connemara filly both wear a yearling/cob size, the mare a large and the filly a regular. They both wear a cob size bridle.

      I always recommend buying a bit smaller than you think you need, then getting a double crown piece and adjustable chin.
      Here is the big headed pony with her regular yearling/cob turnout

      Just want to add they ARE helpful, and will take the halter back and put the nameplate on another halter if the one you order does not fit.

        I ordered the Weanling Sale halter for my 2010 filly in September. It was way too big. Not just the size, but the 3/4 leather was too wide for her refined face.

        It fits her now and looks quite lovely.

          I do have the Quinlin's weanling halter. It fit well, except the muzzle part was too big and I had to add a hole (this was back in Sept. though).

          I really liked the halter (maybe wish it wasn't quite so oily--but no big deal).

          I think I am going to spin this off.

          Thanks for the info on the sizing!!

            We have tons of Quillins and love them, but yeah, they run big. I think the Foal or Large Foal fits ours past weaning for the most part! The leather is thinner too. The weanling size goes up in width I think. Yearling fits them finally like in May of their yearling year. LOL

              Quillin's have a lovely size chart on their website with all lengths on it to help you. I went to pull up that page, but their website appears to be down currently

                Does Quillin stamp their products with a maker's mark? I attempted to sell mine (ordered and shipped direct), at a local tack sale and had someone accuse me of attempt to pass off an inferior product because it wasn't stamped.

                    Mine are stamped on the ends of the crown piece.

                    I just remembered that my 16.2hh 3 year old TB gelding I had a million years ago wore a "small mare" and it was roomy

                      Quillin also has a "Grow with me" (or similar name) halter that is uber-adjustable. I'm not sure if they actually make it as it had nickle hardware and wasn't like my other Quillin stuff, but it was still a very nice halter. When purchased it fit a 3 1/2 - 4 month old WB with very fine little head w/ tiny muzzle and it should fit him until he's two if the tag is correct...

                      I didn't find any sort of identifying mark on the Quillin large weanling halter I have here. It's less than 4 years old if that makes any difference.
                      Y'all ain't right!
