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!

    Has anyone who ordered these on the 11th received them yet? I haven't received mine yet and was wondering how long average shipping time is? UPS ground usually gets to us pretty quickly...

      Have you read the initial sale ad carefully? Frequently people start complaining about not having received their stuff, only to go back and see that it states that the items will not be shipped for two weeks or something like that. I don't know if that is the case here, but it most likely is. I wouldn't get upset over it.

        Has Tack of the Day sent you an e-mail that they've shipped? I always get an e-mail from them when they actually pack and ship the item, so if you haven't heard from them, they haven't sent them yet. It can be awhile between ordering and shipping with them, I have found.

          The initial ad said they would not ship for 14 days.

            I ordered on 5-12 & figured they wouldn't ship until after Memorial Day (they did state 2 weeks to ship). If I get them before June 1st it will be a mailbox surprise.

              I only ride in Pro Circuits! I love the way they fit and feel. My first pair, (the only pair I actually paid full retail for), is over 5 years old and still going strong. I just wash them inside out and hang them up to dry, and they look brand new! I personally prefer the low rise, as I find the regular rise a bit high, but I have both.

                In my excitement I must have totally missed this part! Thanks for setting me straight, Cothers.

                    I was so happy to see these on sale and snatched up three pairs. I've been rotating 2 pair that were purchased the last time TOTD had them on sale (well, not the paisley ones...just the fawn ones). That was about 2.5 years ago..and I've been riding between 5-11 times per week during that time span. I wear them for every day, toss 'em in the wash and then show in them as well: They always looks great. Within the last month, however, I realized they both have sprung very fixable holes in the crotch seam, 'Cept I'm too lazy to fix them. TOTD has saved me some sewing. Yeah!

                      Likewise RugBug -

                      Mine two pairs are 4-5 years old. I ride 3-4 times/week and show in them. The butt seams are starting to pull and they are looking a little threadbare in the inner thigh...

                      SO due for replacements!

                        I bought a couple pair as well, and remember TPTD did say they wouldn't be shipping for 14 days.

                        Anyone who has any they dislike and want to part with - feel free to PM me I love them. Perhaps we can all be happy

                            This has been my 1st experience with TOD & I am quite impressed with their customer service thus far! I will definitely shop with them again.

                                Just got my blue paisley pair from HorseLoverz yesterday and the tan pair form TOTD today.

                                Surprisingly, the longs are not really long. They go down to my ankle, but are not long enough to cuff.

                                The regulars seem a tad short - and I'm only 5'4.

                                I got the low rises in both pairs - definitely true that the waists are smaller than most other Ariats. I'd say these fit more like TS Trophy Hunters (where I'm a 26). I'm glad I got side zips because there's a good inch gap with them down on my hips and I find side zips easier to zip up with a bit of a gap. Other than that, they fit great and look great!

                                Are they water resistant? They feel like a liquid would bead and roll off - but I wasn't about to pour something on my brand new breeches! Figured the Pro-Circuit veterans would know.

                                  I wore my Pro Circuits in a down pour 2 summers ago. Totally soaked. While I finished my lesson, got off, cared for my horse, kept doing things...they dried. The knee patch area may have been a bit damp still, but the pants themselves dried while I was wearing them.

                                    I must be missing something on these breeches. I have a pair of Ariat All-Circuits which I LOVE the fit of and material but they are starting to wear a little on the insides of the legs. I tried on some Pro-Circuits today at the local tack store and I HATED them. I felt like the material showed every.little.thing. The knee patch wasn't as nice and flexible as my All-Circuits and normally I am a 26 in Ariats (ahhh vanity sizing!) and the pro-circuit 30's were still too tight. Ugh for that vain reason alone I disliked them haha. What am I missing? I am kicking myself that I didn't buy more pairs of the tan All-Circuits when Dover had them bc they are sold out now and I can't find them anywhere else

                                      Well then I just have no idea what happened with mine. I received my pair today, and they fit me like those breeches circus performers wear. And it's everywhere, not just the seat area. I've never had a pair of breeches big on my KNEES!

                                      I wear a 26 in Tuffriders and On Course and just about every other breech I've tried on, and small in Kerrits. I have a pair of Heritage breeches from 9 or 10 years ago in a 28, and they're a bit large on me, so it's really baffling me how these are supposed to fit!

                                        I just got my first pair of Pro Curcuits today. In fact, I'm hanging out in then right now. I'm in love. I actually wished I would have bought the beige ones too for schooling and showing. I'm just the type that would stain them with something you can't wash out so I just got a pair for schooling only.

                                        I picked up a 30R in a regular rise. I have a long torso and prefer how the front lays on me with a higher rise. I wear a 30 in pretty much every breech I've tried on with exception to a pair of Ariat All Around's that were a 32. Granted I don't try on a lot of breeches because I have I rule to never try on something I won't buy. Unbelievable how much money you spend making that mistake! Anyhow, I found the fit is awesome! They are a little baggy around the crotch but not enough to look too weird. The fabric feels awesome. I can't wait to ride in these!

                                          I just got mine in an tried them on. They're very comfortable, but slightly too baggy on me in the crotch/butt area. Still, they don't look bad so I don't really mind. Plus, I prefer baggy too cameltoe.
