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!

  • Ariat Pro-Circuit Breeches

    TOTD has a good price on the Pro-Circuit Breeches today so I grabbed a pair of the regular rise. Usually the Ariats are out of my budget so I'm hoping these are a good fit.

    How do these hold up and how high is the rise?
    Moving on doesn't mean you forget about things. It just means you have to accept what happended and continue living.

    I have a pair that I am going to get rid of because I never actually have worn them. The regular rise goes up to the middle of my ribcage! Also, they are not built like other Ariat breeches and work for someone who has wider hips and smaller waist. I am built more straight from waist to hips.

      I have and love these breeches. I had to physically restrain myself from buying more. As in, they were in my shopping cart and I was *this* close to getting my credit card number when I said NO! and had to close the internet window

      They wear like absolute IRON and I love them.

      I think that I have a pair of regular rise and a pair of low. I actually like the regular rise because my shirts don't get untucked. They don't come up to my armpits like some of my older breeches. I think I'm pretty average in torso length...

      I don't think the low rise is a super low as some breeches these days.

      I would highly recommend them to anyone!!

      ETA: i posted the same time as madkat and apparently we have very different views on the rise! I do particularly like these breeches because they fit my hourglass shape. Maybe the fact that I have hips makes the ride a little lower on me? I don't know... for $100 I'd get a pair and sell them on ebay if you don't like the fit.

        Just ordered a pair of the mid-rise. From the description, it sounds as if they will fit me well. Keeping my fingers crossed. I have a pair of show breeches I like, but I couldn't pass up this deal!

          I love these breeches, mine are the regular rise, which comes to my natural waist. I dislike low rise.

            I LOVE these. I've got the low rise ones and they've lasted great. Ordering another pair (the blue paisley ones) from Horseloverz today... hey, why not?

                UGHH -- I went to the site and had a pair in the cart. Then realized, I DO NOT NEED ANY MORE BREECHES! I am a breeches junkie, and I must stop!!!!!!

                So, I exercised some self control and exited the page. But I don't know if I have the will power to not go back!

                  Hahaha...I did the same thing. Had a pair in the shopping cart, forced myself to delete it, then went back later and read the comments about how nicely they fit. I ended up getting a pair.

                  I now have two pairs of nice show breeches and about 8 pairs of schooling breeches. I ride 3X/week and show once a month.

                    Well, if it makes you feel any better, I have been coveting them since I borrowed a friends pair a few months ago. I bought them, and I currently don't have a horse, ride maybe once a month when someone lends me some saddle time, and can't forsee showing in the relative future at all. But since I don't have any show breeches that fit, and when I did get an opportunity to catch ride a few months ago, and I had to borrow some... well I thought I better get some new show ones anyway. Just in case!
                    It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

                      Thank you, thank you, thank YOU for posting!

                      Just ordered 2 of the Low-Rise Khakis with shipping for less than the cost of 1 pair with tax at the store!

                      I live in the Low Rises. Accidentally bought a pair of regular rise from SmartPak last year, didn't realize it until horse show morning 2 months later and didn't have anything else clean, so had to wear them ... Now I have a pair of 1x use breeches =\

                      But replacements are on the way! Hip hip hooray!

                          Pro-Circuits typically are not euroseat.

                            Gah I just bought a pair of these literally yesterday for $140. I wish I would have waited one more day to buy these! To buy another pair or not...any enablers out there?

                            I have these in every color except white (green paisley, blue paisley, khaki, tan, fawn) but I have never even tried them on in white. Does anyone know if they have good coverage in white or if they are a little see-through? Not like I need another pair of white...but if I bought them I could say I have the pro circuits in every color ; )

                              Errr...I am an ariat pro-circuit hoarder. I wore girls 16Rs FOREVER until they literally stretched with me. I have a pair of beige, fawn, and grey. The grey pair are my favorite. I just ordered myself a low rise pair in beige...I need another pair that fit me well I find the high rise a little too high for me but they fit my shape well (small waist and wider through the hips).

                                These are my favorite show breeches, and the only tan show breeches I'll wear. They're amazing, last through show day after show day and still look incredible. I bought a new pair for this coming show season and hung them up in my closet next to my old pairs that have been through the wash 700 times, and the only way to tell a difference between them are the tags! I cannot believe how well they hold up.

                                I will agree they fit differently than your average Ariat; they are rather smaller in the waist and seem more generously apportioned through the lower thigh. This causes some fit problems for me, but it's not enough that I'll switch breeches to something unknown.

                                All mine are low rise because I have the shortest waist ever, and they still come up to my belly button.

                                  Just caved and bought a pair in white. When looking through my show breeches I remembered that I have a pair in grey too. Oi vey, I need to block TOTD from my internet access.

                                    I love these breeches--thank you for posting!!! I am going to order another beige pair to keep just for showing & use my current beige at the barn. I love my gray pair too!

                                    Does anybody have a coupon code?

                                    I have never ordered from TOTD before, but I like the way they handle shipping charges.

                                      Does anyone know how the sizing runs compared to Equine Couture or Dover Competitors? I don't like anything skin tight or too tight! Would these work for me?

                                        I got them in regular rise, but I'm not sure if they're going to be to high. If so, I guess they're under my jacket anyway. Do you think it's worth it to order some low-rises and sell the extras online?
