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.

  • Horze Ashley breeches?

    I searched the Horze review thread and came up empty for the Ashley line. Full Seats for $28? (Yes, I know they are clarino.) And knee patch and pull-ons even less?

    I don't NEED any more breeches, but these are so cheap I am tempted. I usually believe you get what you pay for, but there are exceptions! Just wondered if anybody had tried these...

    I personally love all of the Horze products haha and i got lucky that their size 22 breeches amazingly fit me! (I'm a very petite 5ft eventer :P) Horze tends to maintain quality despite low prices, unlike many brands.

      Quite interested to hear anything on these as well... I DO need new schooling britches...

        Do you mean the Active ones? I cannot find the Ashley ones. If it is the Active you mean (in the right price range) I am very, very happy with mine. And I'm tough on them...washer AND dryer.

          No, Ashley. I found them on Horseloverz, not sure if they are sold anywhere else.

            Oh. Then those are not Horze brand. Ashley is a brand in and of itself. I have one pair, I think. Not super impressed, go with Horze instead! Same/similar price bracket, with the 50% off codes.

              OP was confused too early in the morning!

              Ya'll are right. The Ashley breeches I saw were on Horseloverz, not Horze. Guess I got confused with the Zs before having enough coffee!

              No wonder my search on the Horze thread came up empty...

              Now I want Horze instead! Found two I really liked with right size and color combo. Will go search the Horze thread for Silvia and Sofia!

                My friend bought a two pairs of those last time they were on sale & she loves them. The fabric looked nice. She got grey pinstripe and Incredible Hulk green.

                  Hated the Ashleys

                  I purchased several pair for around $10-$15 each back when Horseloverz was having one of their dollar days. I returned every single pair. Although the material was fair, considering the price, the fit was not. I found them to run extremely small both in the waist and in the legs with very little stretch. While I had initially been thrilled to get breeches at a fantastic price, I was majorly unimpressed due to the sizing and quickly returned them all. Perhaps if I had been able to try (much) larger sizes on in the store, I would have been able to find a pair that fit but it wasn't worth the hassle to keep shipping back and forth.

                  For a cheaper breech, I have been pleased with my purchase of the Active breeches from Horze. I found the sizing much more true and the pricing was great, especially with 50% off.

                    Dover sells them, or tries to anyway, at their tent sales. They are awful. Stiff, thick fabric, weird fit, ugly colours.

                      I picked up 4 pairs for $10 the last time HorseLoverz had a sale and I've been happy with them. The waist runs true to size, but they are a slimmer cut. I'm 5'4" and the length is just right for me. I'm a little bit curvier (16.5" calf), so I think I would have been more comfortable ordering a size up and having more room in the leg. For $10 I am thrilled to death with them and would happily order more.
