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!

  • help can't find a paticular dog leash

    so right now I have a regular nylon dog leash that I bought when I first got my puppy. My plan was to upgrade to leather with a leather collar with the engraved nameplate. So here is my problem. One of the features of my nylon leash is awesome but I don't see it on any of the leather leashes. It's a d-ring attached to where the handle is. It lets me take the leash and sling it across my body and clip it while I walk my dog offleash. I do walk her offleash every morning so i really want to be able to do this. Here is an example online I just can't find a leather one with a matching collar

    you can just put a carabiner through the handle of any leash and get the same effect.
    are you sure you want a leather leash? I don't like them, personally, since they tend to get slippery when wet and can break at the most inconvenient moments, plus some dogs think they are yummy.
    My favorites are the Gripper leashes- you can order these with build-in O rings in the handle ( I use it for the same purpose you do- sling it around your body when walking off leash.)

      I don't want to just put a carabiner because then it will hang loose when I'm holding the leash and annoy me. She is off leash 95% of the time so it will mostly only be used when training and shouldn't be wet. She also doesn't chew on anything she has yet to figure out how to destuff a toy lol. Do you have a link to the Gripper leashes? I can look and see if I like them

          I think of the leashes with various rings often called 'police leads.' Would this work?

            I personally don't use anything but leather leashes. And while doing protection work with my 85 lb Dobe I've never had my leather leash break...
            I can't stand nylon or cotton leashes....I have a 25ft cotton leash I use for tracking and don't like it as it soaks up water like crazy.

                I just got a lovely leather collar with nameplate from Quillins, who makes the fantastic halters. They also do leashes, with the note on them that they'll do custom lengths, etc if called, so perhaps you can call them and ask about making you something custom that's exactly what you want?

                  Oh, excellent idea. I bet their leashes are lovely. My dogs wear their collars, too.

                  I like beta for leashes, personally. Has a leather "feel" but are damned near indestructible and cheap enough where I don't care if one walks away or if the dog drags it down the street. You can also toss em in the washing machine when they get dirty.

                  I got my last pair from these guys:

                  And they do note that they'll do custom stuff, if you contact them.

                      Bridgeport equipment makes really nice stuff. I have one of their police leads that has all the rings to make it an over the shoulder lead.

                        I must be misunderstanding, because couldn't you just hook the handle of the leash to the snap, or even put it through the snap if it isn't too wide, when you sling it across your body? That's what I do -- at least I think, if I understand what you are describing. I put the leash around my neck with the two ends dangling to the front of my body; then I take the two ends and clip them behind my back at the small of my back. Either clip to the material of the handle or put the handle through the snap completely if it fits.

                        I'm not saying that a d- or o-ring isn't a snazzy feature, I'm just not understanding why you can't hook pretty much any leash around your body.

                          I have a small dog and use a thin leash with a small snap. The material of the handle of the leash can't fit in the snap which is why I like the D ring. I was just sprised when I started searching for leather that almost none of those leashes had that feature. I'm looking to buy a long lasting long term leash and collar so I want to make sure to get what is going to work best for me. I did look at the police leads but I think they have too many rings for me. I really just need the one maybe two max.

                                  I haven't bought anything from them in a while, but they used to do custom orders for a pretty reasonable price. Might be worth asking if they still do.

                                    How much does your pup weigh? I use exclusively leather leashes and collars for a very 'light in the mouth' 8lb Pap and a 'dead to the aids' 17lb mix.

                                      my dog is 15lbs and her neck measures around 12inches but she is 7 months old so I want a little room for growth. I did email bridgeport equipment to see if they would custom make her a collar. I also really like their tab's with the rings for hiking this summer and agility
