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!

  • Who makes low-rise, knee-patch, euro seat/seam with sock-sleeve bottom breeches?

    And in colors besides beige?

    The only one I KNOW of is this one, Equine Couture:
    http://www.smartpakequine.com/equine...x?cm_vc=Search

    Is there anything else? Does Ariat have one w/ the Euro Seat/Seam? (I know they have the sock/sleeve leg bottoms)

    I'd love a navy pair, but am leery of the EC ones above due to material and fit. Anyone else?

    Ariat has several different styles, and I know FITS also has the Beka breech which matches your specifications. Also, I believe Ovation does too

      EDIT: Nevermind, found the Ariats that fit my bill:
      http://www.smartpakequine.com/ariat-...x?cm_vc=Search

      But hoping to not spend $200 on schooling breeches. Still on the hunt. May have to cave and get the ECs, at only about $70
      ==========================================

      Thanks! I figured one of the Ariats would, but just didn't know which style (there are so many of them)

      Oops, I also knew about the FITS Beka, but am staying away from FITS.

      Would be happy w/ Ariat or even Ovation. Guess I'll start searching to see which ones have the Euro Seat.....

          I was just about to write about the Ariat Olympias! I recently bought a pair with the side zip and love them! It was hard to stomach the $200 for schooling breeches, but they were the only pair that matched my specific criteria (there were a few others, but they cost even more!)

          Others that might work for you-

          Ovation breeches


          Another pair of Ovation breeches


          I am not sure what type of closure is at the bottom of the Romfh breeches, but otherwise, these might work for you.

                  Thanks guys! You are the best I've got my eye on the Ovations, and I love the Romfh, but I don't think they are sock/sleeve bottom.

                  I'll go check out the collection store.......

                  (and yes, Animo is amazing, but too $$$ for schooling "extra" breeches. I think I'd go the Ariat route if I want to go a touch higher)

                    For schooling I ride in the TuffRider low-rise ribbed euroseats (I guess we have the same taste haha) And I LOVE them. They were only $50-$60 and for schooling, they are great. I also wore them in a show and got many compliments. People were surprised when I said they were TuffRiders. Here is a picture of me wearing them at a show:

                      LGC - I have those exact same breeches and they are my favorite, but mine have velcro tab bottoms, and I really want the sock sleeve type bottoms.

                      If TuffRider just made those exact ones with the bottoms I like (and they DO have that bottom on other types of their breeches), I'd get it in a heartbeat.

                      Someone mentioned that they've taken their velcro closures and converted them with elastic, so they are more like the sock sleeve type. I'm tempted to just do that since there are so many more breeches that have everything else I want (low-rise, wide waist band, euro-seat, extended knee patch) but with velcro closures.

                      At this point, these Ovations have everything I'm looking for, though I honestly wish I could find something at $80 or less (and I don't want EC) for schooling.

                        Total Hijack, but I always find it interesting that people are reluctant to spend money on schooling breeches.

                        My schooling breeches are Animo and I adore them. I think it makes way more sense to spend the money on schooling rather than show breeches. I typically school 5-6 days/week year round.
                        If I were to do winter circuit (hardly ever) I show 10-12 weeks/year, otherwise I might do 4-8 weeks in summer plus 4 weekend schooling shows in winter. That leaves 38-42 weeks in schooling breeches..... I want to be as comfortable as possible for the majority of time I spend in the saddle.
                        Just got me thinking that's all.....

                          Baker breeches are low rise (not sure about euro seam), and have a sock sleeve bottom.

                          Jeffries also makes sock sleeve breeches...very popular at my barn (but a little pricey for me, personally)

                            Thanks Cadance. Yep, alot of them have either the sock sleeve bottoms, or the Euro Seat, and I've found some that have both, but don't have Low Rise Waist

                            Heee - I'm picky. I'll probably just have to shell out alot more to get exactly what I want.

                            If anyone else knows of any others, chime in. Here's the list of requirements again:

                            - Available in colors other than beige/tan
                            - Euro Seat
                            - Knee Patch
                            - Low Rise (ideally with wider waistband too)
                            - Sock/Sleeve type bottoms

                            I know Ariat, Ovation, Animo and EC have these with all the specs listed above. Anyone else?

                              Kingslands are beautiful and match your description to a T!

                              Also though, the Baker breeches (made by Equine Couture I believe) are a less expensive alternative. I have a pair for home use and they are very comfortable.

                                Thanks. The Kingsland breeches are gorgeous, but the ones I saw were velcro-tab bottoms......

                                I don't like the fit (for me) of anything EC (including Baker) Good for stick-figures, not girls with curves

                                  The RJ classics are nice at first - I bought them for work breeches and they totally fell apart. The fabric broke down really fast.

                                  I have yet to find any breeches that hold up better than the old Taylored Sportsmans.

                                  For sock legs the Tuff Riders make a pair that the fabric is really nice so far. They sit a bit too low for me so I just don't tuck a shirt in when I ride in those.

                                      Not much of a Tuff Rider fan but these are the ones that I really like...

                                      They are reasonably priced for work, good fabric, low rise, sock bottom and do come in euro seat...

                                        EDIT: NEVERMIND, just contacted Victory and indeed they are NOT Euro Seat bummer....
                                        =================
                                        DS - OMG, you are a savior if this is true. I always knew about these breeches but it doesn't say it is Euro Seat, so I passed.

                                        Are they??? I've never seen pics of the backside and it doesn't say in the description:

                                        "Super soft and luxurious, these low rise wide waist band breeches with CS2 bottom and 2 side pockets offer a very comfortable and flattering fit. Made with our popular new and improved EcoGreen bamboo fabric.60% Cotton, 32% Bamboo, 8% Lycra."

                                        Have you seen this in person? Do they have the Euro Seat? Crossing Fingers! (and I'm a Tuff Rider fan)
