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!

    I purchased 2 pairs of Pro Circuits off ebay and they are 24's in the low rise and they are WAY too big! The waist measures a few inches too big. I tried on a pair of 22's at the local tack store thinking if the others were a few inches too big then the 22 should probably be just about right on. Nope. Also quite big. My only other option is to try the kids sizes! The couple of pairs of TS breeches I've tried were too big in the 26, but slightly too snug in the 24. I don't know what model those were and they were regular rise. If they were front zip I may have liked them better too. Side zip looks good on some people but I just don't think it does on me. Maybe I will try the breeches on again tomorrow. I haven't even worn them! I guess I can just take them to the used tack consignment store if they aren't going to fit right!

      Just received my white ones from TOTD and am not impressed : (

      The fabric feels very thin and rough compared to my other Pro Circuits, and they are incredibly see-through. Anyone else having this problem? I love all my other Pro Circuits, but these are a disappointment.

        How do they fit compared to the Olympia?

          Ariat Pro-Circuits are my favorite breeches of any. I've found them for fantastic prices at sales that local tack stores offer and I always have to pick up another pair of them. They're so comfortable and cool in the summer. I don't mind wearing them all day at shows, they're perfect for working around the barn as well. The only thing I don't like is the price, so when sales come up I buy another pair or two.

            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!
            It's just a completely different cut. If Tuff Riders fit you well, then Ariats (especially older ones) will likely not fit you well at all. Tuff Rider is generally cut with about a 6" difference between waist and hip, whereas Ariat is cut with about a 10" difference.

              Do you have other white pairs to compare to?

              I can't comment on the white pairs, but I compared my new beige to my old beige & grey pair. I read the material contents (same) & felt the pants. The grey pair has been washed quite a bit more so the material does feel slightly different on the inside, but the exteriors felt similar.

                I just got mine yesterday. The material does feel a bit thinner, IMO. I had a my old pair on (just got home from the barn) and took them off to try the new ones on.

                I was surprised because TOTD was out of my size so I went up a size. My current ones are a bit loose, not hugely so, but there's a bit of wiggle room. The news ones, while bigger in the waist, are much tighter in the legs. Sigh. Not sure if Ariat has altered their cut again, but it seems so. My other pairs are just fine (I have a total of 9 pairs of them).

                  Giddy-up: I do have others that I compared them to, in all of the other colors they make the pro circuits in and the whites are definately thinner and lower quality .

                  Hopefully I can at least make my money back on eBay.

                    I tried mine on yesterday, and I agree with you, RugBug, that the material feels thinner than the older ProCircuits.

                    Still a bargain at $97, though

                      I ordered some of these too and HATE them.

                      They are to tight and I even went up a size from what I normally wear in the Ariat breeches.

                      I was so stoked on the deal i thought i was getting but am not stuck with two pairs that I don't like at all- boo

                        So I finally received my Ariats in beige, regular rise from TOTD.

                        They are too high waisted and tighter in the waist than the other brands of breeches I own of the same size.

                        They fit pretty good everywhere else maybe a tad baggy in the hip area, but then again I have no shape. I especially like the fabric.

                        Question - since this is my first pair of Ariats. Do other styles of Ariats have the same fuzzyness inside? These kept me nice and cool on an 80 degree day.

                        Thanks.
                        Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happended and continue living.

                          I finally got mine too, in beige and the fit is a little wierd. I'll definitely be sticking to TS's unless I can try on a pair next time. TIGHT in the waist band only, pretty loose everywhere else. They seem a little extra-high, but I think it will be fine with a coat over it.

                            All my pro circuits are fuzzy inside. As they wear, the fuzz tends to pill off a bit.

                            I'm cracking up a bit at all the different fits for people. I'm pear-shaped and Ariats Pro-Circuits were one of the only breeches that I could find that would fit me in the legs and not be hugely baggy in the waist. The ones I purchased have not lived up to that experience. They are huge in the waist and tight in the legs and fit nothing like the other 6 pairs I have. I've never NEEDED to wear a belt with these breeches and I do now because of how badly they gap at the waist. It's a good thing that I didn't get my actual size because while the fit would've been better in the waist, they would've been obscene in the thighs.

                            I wore the new ones for the first time last night and the fabric is definitely thinner. I was actually worried that you might be able to see my tell of my undergarmets.

                            None of the other Ariat breeches have ever fit me and it seems Ariat is changing the cut of the Pro-Circuits to match the other styles. It's a shame when a company can't leave a good thing alone and not try to be all things to all people.

                                  TOTD is Tack of the Day.

                                  www.tackoftheday.com

                                  They have one item for sale every day, usually at a steep discount. But it's kind of a "you take what you get" situation and sometimes the things are sized weird or are otherwise different from the normal item. Sometimes it's the same item or there is something off with the labeling. No returns. However, since it's usually way cheaper, many of us roll the dice and take our chances with it.
