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.

  • Romfh Breeches

    Just wondering anyone out there has tried Romfh breeches and and what you thought of their quality and durability. I am thinking of purchasing their Trifecta breech for winter wear and a pair of their new denim breech, which is very stylish!

    Thanks in advance for any feedback.

    I just bought a pair of the denim ones while I was as WEG. I LOVE them! The fabric is great, the fit great, and stylish to boot. I've worn them all week and have gotten a few comments on how nice they are...all my other breeches are Pikeur Mondega if that helps you with body type that they fit well on.

      I've always quite liked them and found them to hold up well.

        Oh - thanks to you both! I fell in LOVE with the new denim breeches when I saw them. I just had to try them - brown pair. If I like them I think I will go for a denim blue pair. Bluehof, will the fabric of the denim breech be good for fall/early winter? I live in NC and generally it doesn't get brutally cold here, at least not until January! LOL! Oh, and thanks for the Pikeur comparison. I love my Pikeur Lugana's, but right now I'm finding it hard to justify their cost. I'm not a large person, but I do have hips. Perhaps the Romfh will accommodate me.

        citydog - glad to hear that you have found them durable. Even cheap breeches are expensive, so its good to know there is someone out there who has gotten their money's worth out of this brand.

        I have only worn their show shirts, and I have always enjoyed them.

          Strictly Classic...I too live in NC now. I think the denim fabric is perfect for fall/ early winter. Thinner than real jeans but still a bit heavier than normal breeches. Not nearly as warm as my Irideon WindPro breeches that I wear Jan-Mar, but perfect for other seasons. They don't look nearly as nice on me as they do on the model on their site, but they do fit my "J-Lo" hips/ butt!!

          I have the blue denim color and like them enough to purchase an additional colored pair.

            A vendor at WEG has some of the regular breeches, retail $110, for $33. They only had up to a 28, but they did seem to fit about a size big.

              Thanks guys!

                Victory Canter has them for 89.95 with free shipping! I just ordered a pair.

                  I have loved the Romphf breeches for style and comfort but not durability. I bought some corduroy ones several years ago that did not hold up well (though they were super cute and super comfortable) and some other ones where in less than a year the whole full seat came unstitched. They may have fixed these problems, as I haven't bought for a few years after these issues
                  OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

                    I love the two pair I have, they are quite durable and comfortable.


                    • #11
                      I also have their winter breeches...I swear they look like Pikeur made them.

                        I have two pairs I bought on ebay a while back, maybe three or four years ago. They are super comfortable. I've finally worn through the full seats, had to ditch them though, I was sad. I paid maybe $30 for each pair.

                          I bought two pairs of Romfh riding tights 3 years ago, and they still hold up like a dream and withstand my 5-days-a-week, 4-horses-a-day riding. I want more, but Dover doesn't carry them!! Where are y'all buying them? Can I get more on-line? I need new breeches desperately.

                            How do they FIT? I've noticed a HUGE difference in the sizing of the stretchy cotton types (On Course, etc.) with a more woven fabric type. Is a 30, for example, the same in each? Or do you size up if the fabric is woven (which I've found to be the case)?


                            • #15
                              Couldn't answer how one fabric in Romfh would size vs another fabric.

                              I'm a 34, and the Romfhs I own feel like a true 34. I have these.

                                Hi guys! Yesterday I received my pair of Romfh Trifecta breeches. I ordered them from Adams Horse Supply (can't say enough GREAT things about those folks!!). I was really pleasantly surprised. The breech is made very similarly to my Pikeur Luganas. I would say these are a good three-season breech. The fabric is microfiber, but it is a thicker, heftier fabric. I generally wear a 30, but with full seats I like a little extra "room". I ordered these breeches in a 32 and they are a little roomy; that's ok.

                                These look like a very well-made breech. Honestly, it made me kind of sick when I think about how much I've paid for Pikeurs when this breech is the same styling and half the cost.

                                I am waiting on the Romfh denim full seats to come. I also ordered them from Adams. They are $107 (I think) with free shipping. I will report back when I get them and let you all know what I think. If they are anything like the Trifectas I'm going to love them.

                                  I thought I had ordered a pair of full seat denims, but they are the knee patch. However- I must have thought they were full seats because of the photo...the stitching makes them look full seats.

                                  I tried them on. They are the best fitting breeches EVAR!!! I luf them!

                                    I think the knee patch version does have a Euroseat.... I love kp breeches - if I like the brown full seats when they come, maybe I will order a pair of the denim blue kp's later on.
