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.

  • Breeches that run small(ish) in the waist

    Hi Everyone,

    I am searching for breeches (like everyone else - lol I think half the posts on this forum are about breeches) that run a little bit smaller in the waist. My current favorites are the TS trophy hunters low rise, but the waist is a little big for me, and since I have a really long torso I can never get my show shirts to stay tucked in. Also, I've noticed that the rise doesn't make much difference for me - I can't keep my shirt tucked in to even my oldish TS non-euroseat, non flattering/stretchy fabric breeches. I've tried the FITS breeches also, but I'm between sizes (I have a pair of smalls which are pretty snug, but medium is too baggy).

    Anyways, if you have any suggestions, let me know! thanks!

    If you can still find them, Custom riding apparel regular rise .. They have a inner band on the waist that holds shirts in place

      If just the waist is the problem, just bring them to a tailor. I did this with a few pairs, it was pretty cheap and now they fit great!

        This.

        I always say, that's why they're called 'Tailored' Sportsman. Look inside the waistband - they are designed to be easily taken in or let out. Voila - custom breeches!

            Apparently the new Tredstep breeches are designed to be smaller in the waist, and higher in the back. Haven't tried them on myself so can't say for sure! The older Pikeur style (the Winner model, I believe) are higher rise and quite small in the waist I found. Only downside is the teeeeeeny tiny belt loops.

              I'm going to have to try those.... I don't have a small waist, I just have a large bottom.... works out the same way only in a larger size. ;-)

                I have the same problem, except that I 'm not long-waisted. I just got a pair of Ovation DX front zips on closeout ($105) from The Equestrian Corner, and I really like them -- no waist gapping whatsoever (even though I have, ahem, solid thighs), plus a nice substantial stain-repelling fabric, Euro seat, and sock bottoms. I wore them to show this weekend. The fit in the thighs and butt is similar to that of the Trophy Hunters -- I wear a 28 in regular TS schoolies but take a 26 in the Trophy Hunters and the DXs.

                I'm eager to hear more about the Tredstep breeches -- they look lovely, but I'm always leery because I can't count the times I've ordered a new pair of breeches, discovered that the waist was enormous, and ended up having to pay to ship 'em back.

                  I have the Tredstep breeches (the #3, the lowest price one) and I would say that they're a bit smaller in the waist than other breeches I own. I love how these breeches fit, I haven't worn any of my other pairs since I got these because I like the fit so much.

                    Pikeur Ciara's - go down one size from what you wear in TS Trophys. They will still flit in the thigh/butt and will be smaller in the waist.

                        If you can still find these... they are amazing. Wearing a pair right now, and they have lasted at least twice as long as the rest of my breeches. I have the same problem, everything is huge in the waist on me and I always have to wear a belt and crank it in. So, don't buy the Smartpak ones, they are the worst! Great fabric, great ideas as far as stretchy calf, euroseat, etc. but not great if you have curvy hips and a small waist.
                        Ovations are pretty good, TS are pretty good, and the expensive Ariats are good.

                          Don't get the All Circuits though, they run HUGE, I have a pair of 26 that fit in the calf and are a bit tight in the knee, but HUGE in the thigh and unless I strap them on with a belt they fall right off!

                            I just got the Ariat Pro Circuits used from ebay, and I found the fit to be almost bizarre. While my usual experience is that breeches that fit in the hips and thighs will gap at the waist and fall down, these fit in the waist and over my skinny legs but are huge through the hip and thigh. They look almost like the old style 1950s flared type, with room for an early pregnancy thrown in. So you might try these!
