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!

  • Best Denim Breeches?

    I want to buy a pair of denim breeches and wanted to know what everyone thought. Quality and fit are important and I don't want the low rise ones.
    Any suggestions? Thanks.

    I bought some of the Horze Silvia denim breeches when they were doing the 50% off discount codes. I really like them, especially for <$50, but not sure I'd pay full price. The fabric is one of my favorites, sturdy but stretchy, and they are not low rise (nor too high). They do run quite long and only come in one length, but I can just turn them up and it works ok. Others might not like that.

    I also have some Trainer's Choice Champion denim breeches that I adore. The fabric is lighter weight, so I do worry they may not last that long, but I find them to be really comfortable and I think they were around $100 or so, probably on sale (knowing me!). They have the Euro seamed seat that is popular now. Sizing is a bit odd as they run really big, like you might go one or two sizes down from normal. Don't seem low rise to me, just medium. Great breeches.

      I buy skinny jeans at Forever 21 for $10.80 and use them as riding pants. I have the low rise version but it may be worth looking for regular rise there. Not sure if they have them. I have had mine for over 4 years and they are still holding up. They are super comfy and you can switch out of boots and wear them somewhere after riding if you need to.

        I also bought the Horze Silvia breeches during a half-price sale. The are sort of between low-rise and mid-rise. They are also a bit long as horsepoor reported above. Other than that they are very comfortable and good-looking, and I like them.

          I have a pair of denim breeches from Equine Couture and I really like them. I don't think they're low-rise and they're pretty comfortable. I believe that they're under $100.

            I have a pair of Goode Rider demin breeches. I LOVE them! They are low rise but with a thicker waistband so no muffin top. They are a beauitful color, fabric, etc. I snagged them off a clearance rack for $70 but I would total pay retail (and I am a total sale junkie, I never pay retail )

            I am impossible to fit for jeans... Seriously, I need new jeans and I have been to every large retailer in town and tried every style and nothing fits. I almost cried when I put these on and they FIT.

            I wear them to work with fashion boots occasionally for casual day and everyone is always like ohhhhh prreeettyyy.

              I love the Goode breeches, but was worried they were too low a rise.
              Do they fit true to size?

                Another vote for the Horze breeches. I even paid full price.

                  Another vote for Horze Silvia! I've even worn mine to work (casual days) and out and gotten compliments I bought a dark grey pair for $69 during the clearance sale, but full price is a bit high on some of the colors- $100+ I think.

                    "Back in the day" I used to wear riding jeans (denim breeches) all the time (Millers back then). But I had a harder leather saddle. I'm afraid now of marring the seat of my soft leather saddle with the back seam of jeans. Anyone have this problem? Otherwise, I love the look of riding jeans, at least for non-summer riding.

                      The seam in the back of the Horze denim breeches is not a raised seam, and there is no seam at all on the inside of the thigh, so they wouldn't be harder on a saddle than any other breeches.

                      The fabric is a stretchy denim, not too heavy.

                                These are the softest most comfortable jean breeches. Depending on you body type they come up to my belly button. The Animos are pricey but look for sales. The hold up very well too.

                                  I totally agree, jeans ruin the leather on the seat of the saddle. I don't let people ride in my saddle in jeans.

                                    The Goode Rider denim breeches are really nice...fit well, nice fabric, comfortable. They look good enough that if you take your boots off no one will look askance at you on the street, they'll just look like skinny jeans . Don't put them in the dryer, though, they shrink.

                                      The demin breeches all have flat seams and a soft fabric. I don't want to ride in regular jeans, the seams chafe and it's rough on the saddle.

                                        They are horrible. I looked at a pair and they look like sweat pants.
