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.

  • Irideon riding clothes

    hey there! I have been browsing the irideon website and was thinking of putting in a order, has any one tried this brand? Thoughts?!

  • #2
    I LOVE their shirts! I show in the Irideon short sleeve jerseys, and I have a couple of their Chinchilla shirts for Winter riding. I tried their breeches, and the fit wasn't right for me - a friend of mine who wears their shirts too said the same thing about the breeches. I can't really say WHAT was wrong -the length was good, the rise was medium (which I like), they just weren't - comfortable?

      The breeches are meh. For the price they aren't worth it and I'm not crazy about the fit. I have their wind pro winter breeches in addition to some other pair and they're not nearly as warm as Kerrits wind pro. I've never tried their tops. If you can try and return, then you don't have much to lose.

        **Slightly off topic question - how do you pronounce Irideon? I've always wondered.

          I love this brand! Their Cadence breeches are my absolute favorite.

                They are super soft - not sure if they will be warm enough for an Alberta Winter! For me, they are great for about 40 degrees - with a vest. But they are super soft and comfortable.

                  I have a couple of the Cadence breeches. For me, they are too high waisted. I also don’t love the bulkiness of the lower leg because they are full length down to my ankle and the full seat goes all the way down. That said, I find myself wearing them fairly frequently in the winter time. My jacket covers the waist so that’s not an issue. There’s something about their compression fabric that is super comfy but somehow not restricting. They also are forgiving enough to wear over another layer for warmth. So while I would change some things, I still like and wear them.

                      I have some Cadence breeches and I have has the opposite experience. The rise is rather low, they are not full length, and are very thin stretchy material at the ends. They are comfy, but not warm enough for the winter. Maybe I bought a different version?

                        I have a couple pairs of their bootcut breeches. I do like the cut because they are made for ladies with 'junk in the trunk.' Most brands of breeches I have tried end up way too low in the back and too high in the front due to my build, and these breeches definitely do not do that!

                        They do tend to run small, so I would suggest ordering a size up from what you normally wear.

                          Theirs are my favorite breeches ever. I'm a big lady, and they fit really well. Their microcords are my favorite, both in the fullseat (those are my show breeches) and the bootcuts which are my everyday go-tos. I prefer their show shirts to the very similar Kerrits Ice Fils because they seem to be a little it longer in the cut. Love!

                              I've always heard it pronounced i rid eeon (all vowels soft except the e).

                                Love the windproof fleece winter breeches. I wear them all winter long, under the Carharrt bibs for chores, under jeans, cross country skiing or around the house.

                                They act as a sort of supercharged long johns, under the jeans. It really works well if it's windy.

                                I am more apple shaped than pear, though I am not far above my ideal weight (eg, if I lost 20 pounds I would be alarmingly Too Thin). I have gut issues, and when things go wrong my abdomen swells. The breeches work well when this happens, forgiving of my increased waist/belly. I also have a pair of Kerrits fleece windblock winter breeches, they are OK but don't fit my shape as well, I prefer the feel of the Irideon cut.

                                  I say "ear-rid-eon" but the BO says "eye-ride-on."

                                  I've ridden in Irideon for a long time, and as a plus size rider I think they have the best sizing, close to "real world." Noble and Kerrits both seem to be snug. I got a couple of pairs of full seat Cadence for a friend to take off to college and she loves them.

                                  The Cadence full seat breeches are my favorite because they have a very stretchy waist which suits me well because I have a waist/hip ratio a lot like Sponge Bob. I had several pairs that lasted for years until the inside of the full seat wore out and they weren't as stretchy. I keep one old pair in the car just in case I get called to the barn for an emergency. I've also been wearing Wind Pro full seats since they came out. Not as stretchy but I ride down to about 15 degrees and they do the trick. If it's really cold they have some long johns that fit just as well.

                                  They changed Cadence and Wind Pros to have a sock-type bottom but didn't make that apparent to dealers or customers when they did it. I don't need high boots or chaps because I use wrapped leathers and they don't pinch, so I prefer the regular cut. I'm stuck with a pair of new style Cadence so I guess I'll have to get my boots repaired. The Cadence is now available in both styles. I was able to track down old-style Wind Pros last month after calling a bunch of online tack shops.

                                  The Chinchillah head band is lightweight and fits under my helmet, but keeps my ears warm without a lot of bulk. I also have a bunch of Ice Fil shirts with short and long sleeves. Very comfortable in the summer and make a good underlayer in the spring and fall.

                                  I keep an eye out for a sale at Adams Horse Supply. She keeps the popular sizes in stock but will order anything for drop shipment from Irideon, which is included on the website. Great customer service, and I like having availability of the full product line.

                                    I loved Irideon Cadence Full Seat Breeches and Wind Pro. I'm about 5'6" with long legs. Needed Long length for the inseam. Loved the stretchy feel, sort of like the Isotoner of breeches. However the long lengths are discontinued and impossible to find! Also, they went ahead and replaced the lower calf sections of the breeches with some sort of fabric...sloppy fit under tall boots. IMO, the company lost loyal customers.

                                      Merry, there are now 2 versions of the Cadence, and I think the original is called "classic." The owner of Adams told me that Irideon is one of those companies that makes a change in a product but not the name and sends it out to vendors without letting them know in advance. Kind of stupid, because you do lose loyal customers if they can't get what they want.

                                      When I was looking for an original style Wind Pro I did a lot of Googling. I found what I was looking for at the Cheshire Horse in New Hampshire and called them. She checked while I was on the phone and confirmed she had them. Sent them the same day. Well worth the search.
