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.

  • Underwear - In other words, "panty lines"

    This has always been my nemesis! What do you wear, especially to show in?

    Does anyone still wear "underalls?" I would love to have some input.

      I just do the "granny panty" thing. You still get a line under the butt, but at least it looks better than the bikini line I would have otherwise.

        Quinn I found some no-line panties at Bakers Saddlery...I think they were designed for DQ's but they're pretty neat. Double lined but really comfortable...only drawback is they look like Granny pants.

        Are you too old for a thong? lol*

          Been a thong-wearer since they were invented. Those who are uncomfortable wearing them are wearing ones that are too small.

            Thong whilst I am riding? Talk about annoying... I just wear regular underwear... besides.. you can kinda tell who's wearing a thong or not.. panty lines are sooo normal in Canada... You can kinda tell who's wearing a thong or not...



            • #7
              I do have the solution. I actually found them on the internet. Everyone at the barn was "agast", that I found them on the internet. I can't remember but I will try to find the right link.
              They are like 6 pr. for $8.00 or something, but they are all cotton with no elastic at the leg like granny pants (we all know how that rubs in the heat)instead these have a band that sits on your leg kind of like "hot pants". The end result no panty lines.

                I don't think I'd be comfy in a thong anytime much less while riding and after seeing a friend get rubbed raw!! (could see the blood stains thru the back of her buff jeans between the pockets) would not be anxious to try it. Ouch!


                • #9
                  Thongs really aren't that hard to ride in.

                  A friend of mine wears panty horse under her breeches to solve the panty line problem.

                    Too funny... the "panty line" under breeches thing makes me nuts too! Several years ago, I discovered the solution for me was to wear "compression" shorts underneath my breeches. My local workout/athletic gear store carries them. They are knee length, and made of a light weight lycra/cotton/coolmax blend. They are snug enough not to ride up my thigh but not so tight as to feel like I'm in a girdle. They have no center seam, and are designed to be worn in place of underwear. I find them really comfortable, and as an additional benefit, they give my thighs and lower back a little extra support. I started wearing them for the "look" and find that my legs and back are a lot less tired at the end of a horse show.

                    So how do they look?? Well, my husband made one of his rare appearance at the hunter ring (which he calls the watching-paint-dry competition) this year to watch me horse show. At one point he cornered me with this bemused and hopeful look on his face and actually asked me if I was wearing anything under my breeches! "What would possibly give you that idea?", I asked. "Well, you're the only one here who doesn't have any underwear lines" came his response. Rolling my eyes, I explained about the compression shorts and watched as the hope slowly ebbed from his expression.....

                      Way to funny Alida!!!! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

                      I prefer the thong way myself, If you get the really comfortable soft cotton ones, (not to small) they're really comfortable. And you don't have that self concious feeling and underwear picking.
                      As for People will "know", who cares....life must be pretty boring to care what the competition has under their jods. hee,hee As long as your comfortable and happy.
                      Live what you love, Love what you do.

                        Oooh, what to do with a husband with pantylines? I so hated the panty lines under my husband's breeches that I ended up buying him many, many pairs of cotton knit boxers from Joe Boxer. I also bought him a thong He wears the boxers.

                            I did the underall thing for horseshow no problem, but then I wore them a couple of times foxhunting, and , well, never again!!! The seam up the back of the panty-hose, from crotch to waiste, rubbed me raw! I guess it was a combination of persperation and friction and time-in-the-saddle that wasn't a problem for horse shows with breaks between rounds, but with 4-plus non-stop hours foxhunting it was an entirely different story! I'd rather have pantylines than be rubbed raw any day.
                            Hindsight bad, foresight good.

                              Yes, you occasionally need to wear thongs in a larger size than you would normal undies. I'll have to try the compression shorts thing if they really help your back. I have been having lower back problems lately.

                              My husband's legs are so skinny that the bike shorts he wears under his soccer shorts are almost baggy.
                              Man plans. God laughs.

                                VTrider: What the hay are panty horse? Sorry, couldn't resist.

                                Alida, "compression" shorts sound like just the thing. I will call around today. Do you not get a line though just above the knee?

                                I too have tried a thong but really didn't like that experience. And, I have tried the granny undies. I wore a new pair for my lesson last week and started to laugh when I looked down and saw a bunched up mass of underwear ABOVE my breeches waistband! Oh yeah, that's a pretty picture. Thanks for the suggestions, this has always made me crazy and hopefully now I can say I have solved one of my major issues.

                                    A most excellent topic! I too tried the thong thing (being a devout user during office hours) under TS. By the end of the lesson, I'm pretty sure with a bit of extra effort I could have blown those things out of my nose! It almost took minor surgery to remove and I consider myself lucky to have survived to tell my fellow BBers.

                                    Congrats to anyone that can consistently ride in them.....you should receive the Strongest Butt Cheeks award [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img] Many receipients appear to be Canadian too...perhaps I need to revisit my roots and I too could declare "I HAVE NO PANTYLINES, MY THONG RULES". Until then my friends, its granny pants for me.

                                      That's because many of us used to buy them at Marks & Spencers; alas they are no more.

                                        Okay Maz, I don't know about blowing thongs out through the nose but I know I just blew coffee out mine when I read your post. Too funny. I only rode in a thong once but I can certainly "mirror" your experience.
