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.

  • Lowrise Tailored Sportmans...

    I cannot stand the feel or look of the lowrise breeches that everyone is wearing. Half the kid's shirt tails are hanging out because of it. I absolutely refuse to allow my students to show in low rise, just doesn't appear as "tidy". Anyone else feel this way?

    The difference for my daughter (who is now an adult) is that she is short-waisted and the low rise fit her like regular sizes should fit. The regulars come up above her waist, way to high to be comfortable to ride in. I do agree that the tall thin girls you see with the low rise in my opinion does not look professional. Depends on the body fit. Not everyone can wear low rise but not everyone is comfortable with the pants up to their arm pits.

      I'm with Roomfor2 - previous incarnations of "regular" waisted breeches are like a second bra on me. Not cute.

        I feel the same way, I especially hate when they wear low rise with shads and all that shirt is falling out in between, low rise just looks so messy IMO.

        Some people wear low rise because they are long waisted naturally, and regular rise has the waist sitting up around their chest, I can understand wearing them under those circumstances.

        Being long waisted has never been an especially attractive feature, and these breeches accentuate that look, whereas a regular rise, or more normal waisted appearance helps to give a longer legged look, which is especially attractive on a horse. Long waists make the legs look stumpy.

          Agree. I bought a pair of regular traditional rise breeches and they come up past my belly button. I have a short torso. My show shirt literally tucks in around my entire butt. I bought a pair of low-rise Ariats and they fit around my natural waist. I do not have a pair of TS's but will be purchasing low-rise breeches in the future in whatever brand I order. I don't think it looks untidy, I think it's more comfortable. At least for people with my build.

            Just the opposite, if you're short waisted then low rise would sit too low on the body. When you're short waisted the distance between neck and waist is less than "normal."

              Not in my case...I am definitely short waisted/short upper body in general and the low rise sits a little higher and more comfortably. The regular waist sits up higher than my natural wait because there's not as much room between my hips and natural waist.

                My DD is very petite and the regular and mid rise look ridiculous on her! I was so happy when the low rise came out, so she could have breeches that looked good

                  Yea I'm 5'1'' and the 26R low rise are DEFINITELY not low rise on me. I do have a pair of 26S low rise which are pretty low and are just schooling breeches now.

                    People come in all shapes and sizes, as noted below. You may want to require a standard that your students present themselves neatly and appropriately, rather than "banning" low rise breeches. There are a lot of people, myself included, who would not take kindly to being dictated to in that fashion.

                      I have regular rise, mid rise, and low rise TS. I have shown in all of them and each looks tidy and appropriate. Everyone's body is different and so banning low rise across the board really makes no sense. Requiring students' shirts to be properly tucked in before entering the show ring? Absolutely. If the pants are so poorly fitting that the shirt comes untucked during the round, then yes, it is appropriate to suggest investing in pants with a better fit. I do agree that low rise often doesn't look right with a shad.

                        I have regular rise ones. Can't stand the feeling of low rise! They look terrible with shads, too. It's pretty tough to get the regular rise ones, in my experience (although I have to special order my breeches anyway just to get the right size, so...).

                          Personally I think the show shirts need to have longer tails.

                          Even with my regular rise breeches my tails are flapping out under my hunt coat. And I think I am built fairly even...no monkey arms or extra long torso here.

                          I tuck in my shirt, get on horse, re-tuck in shirt (sometimes crank my belt tighter too), warm up, tuck in shirt again, go in show ring & still come out looking like a mess. What gives???

                          I have contemplated cutting my show shirts short so under my show coat you wouldn't see anything flapping about untucked, but I can't really get into the idea of hacking 4-6" off a show shirt I just paid $100 for.

                            As mentioned by others above...i have a short torso, and regular rise on me is pretty much at my boobs. Some brands' low rises are too short, but most fit me like a regular rise would.

                              I don't know if I'm long waisted or short hipped or what have you... I personally think the traditional breeches look the best however if I put a pair on, they come up so high they could double as a tube top LOL. Sorry for the visual! I personally fit better in the low rise, but I think one should wear whatever fits their body type the best and looks most professional.

                                Me too, some regular rise breeches look ridiculous on me, they come up SOOO high. The low rise TS breeches fit me in a very normal way. Also, different brands fit differently as well. So, I agree that you ought to consider this on a case by case basis. Now, with a shad I do think it is better to err on the slightly higher waist side.

                                Show shirts are always a huge PITA IMO. Too tight in the shoulders, always coming untucked. Maybe someone does already make one and someone can point me in the right direction, but we need a slim fitting athletic type show shirt in a moisture wicking fabric that has the right collar and cuffs.

                                  This is exactly what I was thinking read when I read the original post, actually.

                                    I agree with you.

                                    But I wish companies would recognize this and offer both options more frequently. As someone who cannot wear low rise, I am disheartened when I see very little regular rise options available...that I would actually want to wear. In a way I feel dictated to by the equine fashion industry

                                        I'm with Crown Royal and Roomfor2 on this one... I'm short-waisted, and regular rise breeches come up far too high for comfort on me. Low rise on me looks like regular rise on most people and is definitely at my waist when I'm on my horse. (As evidenced in my profile pic - those are low-rise breeches... at my waist). But as was mentioned, people come in all shapes and sizes, so I am definitely on board with having options available to accomodate different shapes.

                                        Two other thoughts:
                                        1) My shirt tails have never come untucked while wearing low-rise breeches
                                        2) Even as someone for whom regular rise is uncomfortable, I will not wear low-rise with a shadbelly, and I don't think anyone else should, either (unless they can *truly* pull it off without the white shirt showing at the waist. I've yet to see this).

                                        I agree with Lucassb that insisting on a neat, tidy appearance with shirt tails properly tucked in is a perfectly acceptable approach. Outright banning of low-rise is not.
                                        If we have to nail on talent, it's not talent.
