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.

  • Where to find black leather foal halter, quickly?

    So I guess I waited too long to figure this out. On Friday evening I was searching the internet for nice black leather foal halters, and came across Quillan's. I had decided I call Monday (today), and order one. Well, it takes about two weeks to get a black on custom made. UGH. Inspection is in 7 days. I need a nice black leather halter for a 4 week old filly, and so far am having NO luck. Is it so much to ask to make foal halters in black?

    I ordered mine from Quillan's at the last minute for my last show. If you fill out the form and include the date you need it by, he may be able to do it, but you need to let him know that information asap. Try to call and talk to him. He closes by 5pm, though (maybe earlier?) so call early.

    Once he knew when I needed the halter, he rushed the order and overnighted it to me. And it's a gorgeous halter! I ordered a matching lead too.

    Too bad you're not closer; I'd be happy to lend you mine for your show.

      Mine are going in the Quillin's brown ones this year because I forgot to order their custom ones (oops).

      If it is any consolation, the Quillin's sale halters are very beautiful. I prefer the black ones they have with the rolled nosebands, but their brown sale halter with regular noseband is very traditional and looks really nice. I know they have some brown ones in stock because I just spoke to them.

        I've been taking mine in brown halters for years and I've never, ever had a judge even make a comment on the brown halters, never mind penalize me for it.

            I have a gorgeous black Quillan foal halter with a brass plate on it that says "KWPN-NA". I will be attending my first AHS inpsection to have one of my KWPN mares inspected for AHS approval, and the foal by her side, hopefully, will then be registered with AHS. Do you think it would be a major, minor, or not at all faux pas to show up with this halter on the baby at an AHS inspection? Too late for me to order another one, but maybe I could remove the plate.

              A local tack shop might be able to remove it and even replace it for you. I personally would not worry about it; I doubt they would even notice, and if they do, they probably will just think you received it as a prize.

                Nice halter

                I was in the same position before, I ended up buying a couple of beautiful "Tory" rolled black leather halters made to fit an Arab yearling. I use them on my warmblood weanlings and they work great and are very pretty. I also bought the matching rolled lead. You could probably get them in 2 days.

                  Geeze guys -- if those inspectors are looking at your halters either they aren't much in the way of horsemen or the foals aren't much in the way of horses

                  I take mine in nylon halters -- one year the only one I had that fit this black & white colt (Sempatico foal) was PURPLE!!!

                  I did the walk of shame while standing that foal for inspection, but the inspector never seemed to notice. Foal won his inspection & was graded Gold Premium...finished in the Top 20 of the nation that year.

                  Take what you've got that fits...it won't affect the foals score, I'm sure.

                    Thanks for the replies everyone!

                    This filly is actually only 3 weeks old (will be 4 weeks on Inspection day). My friend is allowing me to use her black Tory halter for the colt I'm taking, but it's weanling size (good thing he's a BIG two month old!). It just hangs off this little girl, who's got a fairly typey head too. She definately needs a suckling halter. I've actually got the Arab yearling rolled halter mentioned above, I use it for my stallion

                    I wonder if a mini halter would fit her? Anyone ever gone that route? Might be easier to find a black in a mini-halter. I just can't believe it's so diffucult to find one! I've been searching just about every tack shop on google to find one, with absolutly no luck.

                        Does the Tory Halter come in weanling size? My kids have little heads. The Quillin in size small is big for them - though I can make it work if I have to.

                          I wasn't able to find the rolled Tory halter in weanling size I don't believe they make a suckling size either, I've searched high and low for one. I even asked my local tack store if they could order one (even a non-rolled Tory, like the one my friend is lending me, in suckling size), and they said no.

                            I totally sympathize! And I had even more trouble because I was looking for a PONY foal size halter in black! Don't know if it helps, but I got mine (kind of a cheapy one, but it looked good and the fit was acceptable) from Skyline Equine - http://www.skylineequine.com/product...s_leads01.html
                            I don't know where you are, or how fast they ship, but it's worth a try!
                            Next time I'm going to go to my local tack repair shop and have them make a nice one for me in black!

                                The KWPN-NA used to market a lovely black leather foal halter, but I don't see it on their website. Maybe call and ask them?

                                  Well I broke down and bought a brown one Oh well, I guess I shouldn't stress over it too badly. I've heard that they are such great quality, that I hope it's worth it. Next year I'll definately buy in advance!

                                    I realize that this won't help out for this time, BUT for next year. I highly recommend Coopermill Harness. They make excellent custom halters for any size. You send in measurements and they make it with allowing for growing room. I have had two made and have been able to use them on several foals - they look just like new (I purchased mine five years ago).

                                    www.coopermillharness.com (I purchased the rolled leather in black - filly halter)

                                    I dress mine up with custom browbands - www.equesport.com (They will custom size a browband IF you give them the EXACT measurement - I got the measurement from Coopermill for the browband).

                                    Excellent craftsmanship on the browbands - again, I've had mine for five years and they both look like new. I had two made - one for mare and one
                                    for baby. The adult size one also works on two-years olds and up.

                                    Diva - let me know where you're going (as I believe you're not too far from me) and when, perhaps I'll meet you there and bring my halters for you to use (if they fit). Let me know.
