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!

  • Ladies no-chafe underwear

    Has anyone had any experience with these "Jelly Pantz"? http://www.jellypantz.com/the-high-tech-starter-kit-9

    Are there any other anti-chafing/anti-bruising/anti-hurt-like-heck-down-there underwear to consider?

    Thanks for any input!

    I've had a ton of luck with the aerie (american eagle) hipsters with the wide cotton bands around the legs. You might also just have the wrong saddle, or your saddle doesn't sit right on your horse.

      Don't make fun of me!

      OK, don't make fun of me, but the solution we found was boy underwear! When I was a working student, last summer, in FL...obviously heat and chafing became an issue!

      We asked the trainers and they told us they were both riding in Hanes Men's ComfortSoft Briefs!!! I felt really weird buying and trying them for the first time, but let me tell you...they are AWESOME!!! And as an added bonus, they cost like $2 a pair, not 50!

      Let me find a link:

      We all ended up wearing them...and as an added bonus, they really get rid of panty lines since the leg opening is so low. I wear a size 8-10 in womens clothes and wear a M in these, so you may have to think a little about the sizes.

      Worth a shot for so cheap! Good luck!

          I don't see it on their site anymore, but about a year ago I got totally seamless underwear from Victoria's Secret. It's made of a somewhat shiny material, and unlike all the rest of the "seamless" underwear, it literally is one piece of fabric and the only seam is one four inch seam on the back. No seams along the bands, sides or anything. It's the most perfect riding underwear I've ever found, but I don't know if they make it anymore.

            Echodecker - do these Hanes, um, "bulge" in the front? Sounds like an interesting solution, and I'm all about the cost thing!

              Haha, I was right with you, but no they don't! I think that since my anatomy doesn't make them "bulge", the fabric never gets stretched out. They aren't made in a shape so I think they are just like girl briefs unless they are stretched out by a guy

                LOL, I have a pair of those, they are my show panties

                OP are you having trouble with bruising while you adjust your pelvis? I went through a phase while i went from hunter seat to dressage seat where I was bruising myself every time I posted. My bike shorts with padded chamois helped alot, and cost the same as those panties you put a link to, except that they are shorts, and go down the leg (a bonus if you are also experiencing rubs)
                Seatbone and inner thigh sores can be cured with the bike shorts, or... wearing a thong. I used to hate thongs. then I discovered they tend to run small, so if you are a M in regular panties, you are a L in thongs.

                    I used to bruise and rub from a combination of things that seemed to have a domino effect. I have since bought a new saddle which gets fitted to my horse every 6 months, and what a difference! But I'm still getting bruised and a bit of chafing every now and then when I have a particularly unbalanced ride. The new saddle gives me much more confidence to sit, so I'm still developing muscle memory. I believe in time and as my core strengthens this will become a non issue which is so much better than last year when I thought maybe I just wasn't cut out for riding.

                    I am fit - I run and do some strength training, but I've just got to master this balance thing. I'm so happy that I see it's coming! Now to find some underwear... Thanks for the posts so far. I'm looking into all the suggestions.

                      Great to hear you exercise outside of riding! I can certainly tell when i've missed a week of exercise.
                      Running and strength training are great; what are you doing for flexibility? The two things I focus on are core strength, and flexibility. I stretch my hamstrings several times a day (mine tend to get tight FAST)
                      I go through the vinyasa yoga cycle at least 3 days a week. Takes about 15 minutes and wow, makes a HUGE difference in the saddle. I also try to do the kenpo quad stretch before leaving for the barn. REALLY helps if you have a tendancy to get huntery in the saddle

                        Ditto to underarmour - I ride between 8 and 10 horses a day and I get no (really) chafing since changing over to these a couple of years ago. Before that I had tried so many different kinds, I thought "monkey butt" just was an unsightly and painful of riding!

                          I also ride in UnderArmour compression shorts...they are great..I used to have really bad chafing problems in the FL heat with full seat breeches.

                              The only thing that has worked for me after trying many different panty styles is padded bike short skins. These are whats work best for me:

                                I get that there might be circumstances where we get abnormally chafed and rubbed, but if this is happening regularly, get your saddle checked first ! Nobody should be putting up with crotch pain on a regular basis. It can be as simple as moving your balance point back half an inch - or we might need to to swap out your saddle for something with a bigger, or smaller seat size, or a narrower twist, or a smaller, or bigger thigh block, or a wider, or narrower seat.

                                I see on their home page that 'uncomfortable saddle' is cited as one reason to try fancy knickers. It's not. 'Uncomfortable saddle' is a reason to fix your saddle !

                                Girls ! Do not put up with saddles that knacker your nether-regions

                                  Try Spanx. They're better than biking shorts.

                                    Thongs in the summer. Pantihose in the winter.

                                    Both of these work because there is no elastic around the leg.

                                        Doesn't help with the bruising, but Chamois Butt'r is what all the bikers used and it works wonders and is totally safe for "down there." http://www.amazon.com/Chamois-Buttr-.../dp/B000HZGTUS

                                        Also, I second (third, fourth...) all the posts about a new saddle. I am a re-rider, and was having a really painful time with my old saddle which fit me perfectly when I was 16 (no longer!). For the longest time I thought it was my fault - out of shape, lost my seat, etc. Then I sucked it up and bought a new saddle with a wider twist - the pain vanished completely! It wasn't the cheapest solution, but TOTALLY worth the money.
