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!

  • Underwear?

    I am 110% done with panty lines with breeches, but all the thongs I own are either too expensive to buy more of or else super uncomfortable, any recomendations on comfy, cheap(ish) undies?

    I don't find thongs comfortable to ride in anymore (I did as a teen), I usually ride in VS microfibre hiphuggers and they are super comfortable and don't show lines.

      VS lacey thongs. Only thongs I find comfy, not too expensive (usually are buy 3 for 25 or something from what I can remember)

        I live for boyshorts, especially the ones that have lace around the edges. I've never had any VPL issues with those, and they don't ride up. Granted, I also have the flattest butt in history, so maybe that's why they work for me.

          Just got 2 of these, then spent two hours on my horse both Saturday and Sunday with lots of trot/canter/gallop, and they are amazing. I usually get rubbed, but not with these. A little pricey, but SO worth it.

              If I don't want to show lines, I just wear the same type of underwear that I used when I was doing competitive cycling. They were more of compression shorts that were similar length to the bike shorts, and also designed so there were no seams that would cause chafing. Nice because they also help hold things in, not just get rid of lines.

                I think Victoria secret makes underwear (and bras) that have non elastic sides that are supposed to lay flat and not create lines. Otherwise I'd try target or somewhere cheap for lace edged thongs or boy shorts. Boy shorts may not create as noticeable lines since they sit further down the leg/butt.

                  I think you'd have hot competition from me for who wins the Flat Butt award.

                  Victoria's Secret should have a range of seamless underwear in various styles, and they usually have deals.

                      I like those VS "no-line" underthings as well, as I do NOT do thongs.

                            La Senza makes pretty much the same thing as VS but they can be wayyy cheaper - I think I've sales for up to 7 for $25!! Finding them 5 for $25 is easy!

                            American Eagle also makes similar ones but I've found they don't hold up as well. Not too bad for the price really but as a student I want the best possible bang for my buck so La Senza all the way!!

                                Gap makes very stretchy underwear with very flat seams specifically to avoid dreaded VPL. I prefer these to VS.

                                In any brand, you'll want stretch, very flat seams, and a good fit (not tight, not loose). Pure cotton can get baggy.

                                Tanga is a nice alternative to a thong - they're cut higher on the butt to avoid VPL but there's more coverage otherwise.

                                  Ever since I was a junior and one of my barnmates fell off at WEF, splitting her pants while wearing a thong, I vowed I would never be the person trotting after her horse with my pants split and my butt out - hence, no thongs for riding.

                                  I agree that the Gap's underwear seems to keep a flatter seamline than VS - after washing a few times, the VS die. When in doubt, I totally love my SmartPak granny panties. Pretty much the least sexy/most comfortable ever, and with no lines. And if I split my pants, full coverage

                                    The number of "commando" votes is reminding me to definitely wash the used TS breeches I just won off of eBay as soon as they arrive...

                                    I like boyshorts, but it's hard to find pairs that are really and truly flat enough. Oddly enough, the absolute best ones I've found were from the Dollar Tree. Sometimes, if you go to the gourmet fancy Dollar Trees (y'know, the ones that are megasized), they have an aisle of underwear/clothing, and there are these really super-thin nylon boyshorts that are totally invisible under breeches. Also a great place for really thin knee socks. (:
