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!

  • Favorite Denim Breeches?

    I want some denim full seat schooling breeches. Any comments? Anyone have the TuffRider ones?

  • #2
    Times and traditions in the horse world shift and change, much of the old grandeur has been lost; But for one brief shining moment, there was a gigantic shocking pink d**** in the Hunterdon tack room.

      I can't recommmend them. I have the TuffRider ones. When damp with rain or perspiration, they can really rub/irritate your skin.

        Thanks Dennis!

          I like the look of the Goode Rider ones, but are they really denim or just material that looks like denim?

            Real Denim Breeches!!!


            My favorite demin breeches were by Millers (remember that company )

            After Millers closed, I found this company with the exact same jeans! Amazingly, the owner said she copied the Miller's jeans that she loved!

            I wear the tapered leg style but there are regular breeches with suede knee patches.
            No seams that rub and they are a good weight denim.

            No fullseats though!
            Could you channel your inner Hunter Princess and school in breeches with knee patches?

            If you must be a DQ and have your Full Seats

            I suggest you try Equissentials in navy (looks like denim) French Terry.

            The French Terry is like riding in your yoga pants and the leather F/S just molds to your bottom!

            AND they will custom make them at no x-tra fee. AND they will re-size/re-cycle their breeches at minimal cost.

            They also have them in moleskin and leather.
            But, I see you in the leopard print leather! Tres Chic!

              Fabulous! Love 'em! Yes, no problem with kneepatch. Would be fab if she'd had them as full seats, but I'll live. Clever of her for doing those, they are great. As for the leopard print, I will bow out gracefully. Oliver would be horrified. Bad enough that he is getting a red Mattes pad. Or already has an orange Anky one.

              I haven't seen the Goode Rider ones in person but in photos they almost look as if they have a denim-looking fabric.

              Ultimately I will indulge in some of the Pikeur denims, but right now I don't want to blow the $$. Though I do love 'em.

                  I corrected the link for the horsewomanspirit denim breeches: http://www.horsewomanspirit.com

                  Maybe you could email and suggest she add full seats to her line?

                  Just kidding. Just kidding.
                  I can imagine that Oliver would be horrified.

                  Let alone Aunt Esther.

                  And God forbid Willem looked down from horse heaven and saw such a display!

                    God forbid anyone at my barn even saw such a display - their eyes would bleed!

                      About Willem and ugly-ass clothes.

                      Every Christmas season I always remember Willem's lecture on "What NOT to get your horse for Christmas":

                      "Don't nott to buy no ugly ass things for us to wear und then say it be a present for us, it don't nott to be, it be for you."

                      Truer words were never spoken!

                      I don't think he would approve of ugly-ass leopard breeches for humans either!

                        And when he looks down and sees Ollie in his flaming orange ear net, he shakes his head and says "better you than me, dude."

                          The Pikeur ones are the most flattering... that's why they are the most expensive. The denim Gooderiders have a "pinstripe" in it... I am not in love with the look, and since they are low rise, they run a little smaller (to me anyway)
                          Doesn't Ovation make some too?

                          Willem always had a way with his words, and he had such class... maybe his Christmas list should be re-run for new people who never got to meet him?
                          There are so many new COTH'ers that have horses that will benefit from his list. Maybe Oliver can add a few of his own what not to gets on the list?
                          to err is human, to whinny, Equine.

                            Denim breeches have to be the best idea since sliced bread. I would live in jeans entirely if it weren't for having to ride in breeches. Because of cost, I got the TuffRider ones. But, ugh... they chafe. Get a little sweaty, and my bum and knees are raw. They also stretch out too much and by the end of a long day riding I have a baggy butt which is not attractive.

                            I'm holding out for the Pikeur's. Good to know they are flattering. It is after all THE most important quality. Maybe I'll win the lottery!
