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!

    High waisted breeches

    I'm looking for suggestions on high waisted breeches. I'm a very petite female but I'm oddly built. I have a longer upper body that's very narrow, a very 3-D butt, a size 26/2 waist, but my hip points are very high. I tend to prefer a higher rise waist in jeans and my breeches. I used to adore tailored sportsman, but I've noticed their "mid-rise" is leaning towards the lower side these days and their cotton/material is kind of cheap. Does anyone have any suggestions for a decent brand? Please no Tuff rider, Tredstep, equine couture, etc. Thanks in advance.

    I'm the same size with the same issues. My side zip TS hit my hip bones and its really painful! I have a mid ride (older style though) and they fit me really well.

    I'm not sure where you live, but I have a pair of Elations (from Greenhawk) and they fit me really well and are super comfortable. I have a pair of Tuscany's as well and they fit like a glove.

    I havent tried the newer TS so I don't know how they compare now. Perhaps you can find a good pair of used TS on FB? That's where I got my current pair from and I'm super happy with them.

      If they are just for schooling the noble riding tights (pull ons) are my absolute FAV! So bummed they pulled out of Canada.

        I also would LOVE to find breeches (not tights) that are higher waisted than most of what I find out there. I currently use TS mid rise, but I'd love to find something structured and actually on my actual waist. Seemingly impossible!

          Go on eBay or call up Middleburg Tack Exchange or MD Tack and ask for some show quality used Tailored Sportsmans. There are a bunch still out there in the older material/fit that are in show ring condition.

            I’ve never tried them but your thread made me recall a recent article I read raving about the Caitlyn breeches by Aisling. May be worth a try.

              I also hunt for high waisties. I recently picked up a pair of Horze Daniela breeches, and although they work well for the waist, I find the fabric to be less stretchy than I'd like.

                Pikeur has several styles with a high waist. They are much cheaper if you are willing to order from the UK/EU.

                  I like the Romfh Champions and Isabellas (although the Isabellas are pretty pricey).

                      It sounds like you might do well in Ovation's Celebrity Slim Secret breeches. Annoying name, but its a true high rise that accommodates a slim waist much better than Piper's mid-rise.

                        I’m a loyal TS follower but was fed up with the metal closure cutting my stomach, so I tried Decided to look for something new. I have the corduroy Aisling’s and love them. They are well made and look expensive. In fact, I may order myself another pair right now!

                          I got some of those Annie's breeches, and they are high enough for me (I like high rise, have long hips and even mid rise seems to be too low). I got this pretty gray one from them and they are my new favorite breeches to wear.

                            Try some of the SmartPak Pipers!! They are actually my favorite - they come in all styles and they are actually super affordable.

                              And ruining so many shirts!

                              I have been wearing Smartpak Hadley breeches lately. Kind of a weird synthetic material, but they are not too long. I can't wear most breeches because I am short.

                                Another vote for the Smartpak Hadleys! (Altho my problem is the opposite--need large sizes)

                                  Have you tried B Vertigo? I love their high waisted breeches, super stretchy and comfortable.

                                    I luuurrrvvvveee my Romfh Champions! I feel that I am built similarly to you (per your description), and these fit my shape wonderfully. I have a saved search on eBay for them, and I try to scoop them up, as I see them.

                                      Just a note on the Romfh breeches - the cut for the Champion is different for the knee patch/full seat breeches. I got a pair of Isabellas that fit like a glove. I've only had the chance to wear them once but I know they'll be my go-to white breeches. I ordered a pair of Champion KP breeches to wear for xc, but they weren't nearly as high-waisted as the Isabellas. Looking at the stock photos, it appears as though the fullseats have 3 buttons on the front, where the knee patch only has 2. They are still nice breeches, but not the right fit for me.

                                      I also have a pair of Hadleys. The material is nice, but I wouldn't consider them high-waisted. They gap at the waist and are far too short for me (I can go with a regular or long length depending on the breech).

                                        I only have the fullseat Champions, and you're right, they have 3 buttons. The Sarafina fullseats only have two.

                                        I have a pair of the Hadley fullseat silicones, and I get stuck in my car when I wear them! (I also love the fit though)..
