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!

  • hip huggers causing pain?

    and I am not talking about husbands

    I dug up this par of jeans I had bought in desperation when nothing would really fit, they are kinda low rise, and since I've been wearing them I got horrible backpain, very low, almost the tailbone and a tingly aching sensation in my legs, especially from the knees down. I did not do a lot of digging, it's been raining, but a lot of bending over while trying a thorough spring clean up...(the weather could be to blame, too?)

    I am in pain, not bad enough to scream, but not comfortable at all!

    I would blame the activity, not the pants.

      I've had low rise jean bruise and cause pain at my hip bones, but certainly no lower.

      I agree with dwave--it's likely the bending over that's stretching tight muscles/tendons/ligaments.

              I've had low rise jeans that made my sciatica flare up something wicked. Chaps too. I think the wiastband/ strap in the back they pressed on a nerve.

                I'm very tall, and getting riding breeches to stay up where they belong was always a problem. By the end of a long day in breeches my back/hips were killing me because of the constant downward pressure, a belt just intensified it. I'd blame the jeans!

                  I'd throw those evil pants out. I had a really cute pair of jeans that just about crippled me. I've always wanted to use the phrase "my scaitica is acting up"

                      I picked up 2 pair of the really low rise on sale and have to have belt pulled really tight to keep them from sliding off. Found out from a friend that I should have bought the size smaller but I really do hate them and think I'm gonna pitch them as well. With the belt hitched really tight, it gives me hip problems as well as gut problems. Besides, unless you are really slender, most people end up with muffin tops hanging over and that looks really bad.

                      I do admit though that I love the skinny legs on them.

                      I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people...I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem sort itself out.

                        I'm a traditionalist - low rise pants have no place in the show ring anyway. Schooling is one thing but why would you want to always be in danger of showing some crack? EWW! And what you said - unless you are skinny and 12, you probably shouldn't wear them. What shocks me is that most people who do for some reason never look at the back view, and it ain't pretty!

                          I'm befuddled by hip-huggers, too--call me old and straight (both accurate) but visible butt-crack and muffin tops are attractive on a woman?

                          My problem is trying to buy JUST PLAIN JEANS, without a low-rise, without flared bottoms, long enough, and made of honest-to-God DENIM instead of blue tissue paper. The only kind I've found that fit the bill are Wrangler cowgirl cut ones (I can only find them on the internet), and those are too nice to wear in the barn.

                          Sorry to derail. Definitely NOT missing the icky, acid-washed, skin tight and up-to-your chest styles I grew up wearing but dang--just give me some plain old barn jeans that don't have any particular STYLE to them. Then I won't feel so bad beating the snot out of them.

                            Deltawave, I just picked up 2 pr of Gloria Vanderbilt (sp) jeans at BJ's for 15.95. They are a decent fit but are on the thin side but still should hold up to the barn beatings we give them for at least one summer. They come in short, med and tall lengths but you have to get them when they are first put out or your size is gone. They fit at your waist and are stretch to boot and no muffin top is hanging over.

                            I used to always by Land's End jeans but they have been going to lower rise. I can honestly say that the GV jeans are generally a decent fit but are made very cheaply so don't expect to get more than 1 season out of them. They also have corduroy jeans which are great for winter. I've never been one to buy cheap clothes but for barn wear, who cares at this point. I'm sure not going to buy designer jeans for cleaning stalls and mowing fields.

                              I'm old enough to remember when Gloria Vanderbilts were THE thing to wear. That and Sergio Valente, Sassoon, etc. Skin tight, of course. I would've sold my soul for a pair, back then before I got my priorities straight! Now I think it would be good karma to wear them in the barn.

                                I've been wearing Gloria Vanderbilts (bought really cheap from garage sales!) to the barn because they are stuff I don't care if I wear out. They don't really fit right anyway so it's better they take the abuse than the inexpensive-bought-on-sale-for-$9.99 guy's Rustler jeans that actually fit.

                                  I was so glad to see hiphugger pants come back as they actually fasten aroudn my waist instead of Steve Urkle height. I can see where the OP is getting back pain from low rise jeans as regular rise give me a pain across mid back if I try to not look an old hiphop wannabe. My suggestion is try wearing something soft like sweats for jobs that require a lot of bending.

                                    I have low rise jeans, but not the ultra low rise. I buy low rise because I have a short waist, and they fit better (no gappiness around the waist, etc.) However, I've never had pain from them.

                                        I remember getting my first pair of Sassoons!!!! I thought I was soooooooooo cool!!!!
                                        Unfortunately, I was much more comfy in my Wranglers-- which made me decidedly uncool-- that is until the most popular girl in school won the National High School Rodeo Queen Crown, at which time Wrangler sponsored, and supplies her with a crapload of Cowgirl Cuts---pretty soon, the WHOLE FRIGGIN SCHOOL is wearin Wranglers!!!! Finally, I was cool!!
