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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Help on shopping for new breeches! Knee patches, full seat, extended knee?

    Hello everybody, I need a new pair of breeches! I've wore knee patches all my life but I'm starting to wonder if I should/could use extended knee breeches or full seat breeches. I know in hunterland it's considered a crime and not proper attire to wear anything other than traditional knee patches but for the jumper ring the attire rules are a little looser. I do h/j so I'm wondering how full seat or extended knee breeches could affect my riding? I'm aware there's a matter of personal preference but I'd just like to hear from other people! Also, any brand recs? I still haven't found a pair of breeches that have *clicked* with my body, if that makes sense. I'm overall just really stick thin with no curves at all, average height. I feel like most breeches are too loose at the waist and start having that awful gap, which nobody likes lol. I love a good high rise too
    Edit: the breeches dont have to say high rise, just has to stay on without exposing too much xD

    TIA!

    I prefer full seat because they give me some extra butt protection especially on long rides. But if you are going to show in knee patch Id suggest schooling in them too so you don't feel slippery when you switch to show.

    I have no idea what fits stick thin young people . I sort of assumed everything would as it certainly doesn't fit thicker older people!!

    You can always get a seamstress to take in the waist. Most malls have an alteration shop and some dry cleaners do this too. Maybe also a stretchier breech?

      I love my samshield Adele breeches. They feel like leggings they're so comfortable, and they have grippy knee patches. The beige color is acceptable in all three rings, they do have a little "bedazzled" strip on top of the back pockets but judges wouldn't care. To me, these breeches are far superior to any others I've tried in terms of quality and comfort. I'm also thin and wear the 24 but if you are stick thin the 22s might fit better. Another thing to note- they're not high rise. they claim to be low rise but to me they fit more like mid rise. Pricey but worth it!

        I think the Ghodo's are made for stick thin riders! I certainly cannot squeeze my big butt into them, haha. They are more low rise, though. Have you tried any of the Romfh breeches? Maybe the Sarafinas would work for you?

          I’m pretty lean with straight type of body shape - I love the Romfh Sarafina. I rode hunters for a couple of years, and schooled in them all the time. I don’t even like to wear my knee patch breeches anymore, they feel slick to me - I think I wear my full seat Sarafinas almost exclusively now

            Ok I tried on some Sarafinas breeches and they definitely fit better than my current wardrobe of breeches. I love that they're not too pricey!! I'm definitely grabbing them in multiple colors, thank you! As for full seats, I've heard great things about pikeur. Anybody have experience with their full seat breeches?

              I wear Piikeur Laguna full seat breeches and love them. Piikeur has a number of different models and fits. I'm sure one would work for your body type.

                  Yes, I have had a few pairs of Pikeurs in the past and they are pricey but definitely worth it!

                    Once you know your Piikeur model and size you can order from sites like Equine and Country in Britain for huge savings. They have a lot of discount Pikeurs and when the British pound is tanking that lowers the price alot too!

                      I am super curvy, and no where near stick thin. I tried the Pipers by Smartpak and they didn't fit me at all in the legs ( which is where I am curvy.) So maybe you could try those, not too pricey either. They are around $70-$100 depending on the style.

                      As for the patch problem....I always ride in full seat because they fell better to me. They also help you stay in the saddle a hell of a lot more than knee patches do. Another bonus is that they do look more sophisticated on your body.

                      Good luck with your breech hunt!

                        I heard that the pipers pill really easily, but other than that I've heard amazing things about them. I might give them a try though! Yeah I'm starting to love full seats (they're so comfy, how is that possible?) but I'm sad I can't wear them for my hunter trips Thanks for the suggestion!

                          I have never worn Pipers before but all of my friends have them at the barn and say that they last forever. I wish that I could fit in them! I still have no earthly idea of how extra fabric through your crotch and butt could be comfortable! All I know is that it is and I love it. I would also recommend bVertigo full seats and Tredstep Ireland full seats as well, but if you are not going to be wearing them then they might not be worth the $$$. Good luck!!
