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.

  • ok ladies this one's for you...question on the panty line!

    Ooooook........thanks to The Potato's Mom for reminding me to post this question....what is the choice of panties for showing in breeches???

    I HATE the panty line...it drives me CRAZY. I feel like it draws attention to my booty....I don't want people walking around thinking "oh look I can see that girl's panty line!" noooo!!!

    What do you guys prefer?? Regular undies (but they ride up), thong (just don't go there, its not pretty), boxer breifs (ok but they can get bunched up around thighs). I will be the first to admit I have ridden panty-less (thanks to the recommendation from a previous trainer).....please tell me I'm not the only one!

    Under Armour Thong.... very comfy! I think it's like $18, but the best I've found so far!

        I wear pantyhose under my breeches and I find it really helps with VPL.

          I call them my "Big girl riding underwear". Full coverage breif, preferrably not cotton, as they tend to stick to my breech & ride up with it.
          My trainer rides in the new Silver riding underwear & loves them - says she won't ride in anything else.

            Thongs of course - they show nothing.


            • #7
              Thong. I don't even own a pair of full seat unders. As soon as the thong came out (I was like 16), my ass went in them. I HATE panty lines.

              One day, I'm going to be an old, shriveled up woman, still wearing a thong. Wait -- I think that's already me!

                I wear a lot of Victoria's secret low rise boy cut briefs - I haven't had a problem with panty lines in them.

                Then again I have a wide waist and narrow hips and a small ass, so my breeches tend to be tight at the waist and looser below ;-)

                  Thong- I own nothing else.

                  I make sure it is beige. One time I was getting on a horse and my breeches split down the back. At first, it was just a tiny tear, so I went in anyway- figured I'd change between trips. Needless to say, the first fence- rrrrrrrRRRRRRIIIIIPPPPPPPP! Everyone, I say everyone, knew I was wearing a hot pink lacey number from VS. I did my hunter circle and as I rode by the judge, she was laughing her arse off- she quietly said "beige next time please"...

                  I still got 2nd out of 36... won my division, but I was refered to as "the pink thong lady" for the remainder of the show....

                    I wear Target and GAP underwear, low rise "no show" briefs. They have tapered elastic legs so I get minimal lines under my breeches.

                        I wouldn't be ashamed of doing it but found the center seam very uncomfortable the only time I tried it. And when they stay in place thongs can be the best solution. My problem is that sometimes they end up "out of position." I think I'll try the Silver panties next.

                          "seamless" or "invisible" thong or boyshort/hipsters... look at Victoria's Secret.

                            VS Thong... all the way. I usually wear the cotton ones because they come in fun colors, but for my white breeches I stick with a silky beige pair.

                              I wear panty hose over my regular bikini briefs. I can't wear a thong and the hose keep those pesky lines away.

                                Thong - keeps the lines away.

                                  I found some no show boy shorts that are great for riding. The only time I wear them is when showing because they are big and ugly, but they do the trick. I think I picked them up at Costco. They are made of microfiber and are tapered so they don't show.

                                  In daily life thongs are great, as is going commando if need be, but I will NEVER do that again at a horse show after I took a bad fall and the first thing they wanted to do was pull my belt off and undo my pants.

                                    Although I found some underwear at Target the other day made of some material I've never seen used on undies before- VERY thin, and no seams along the edges. They feel like wearing nothing, don't seem to show (haven't tried them under breeches yet though), and cost a whopping $3.

                                      When schooling at home, I don't care so I wear my regular underwear. VS cotton bikini style.

                                      But for shows, I wear the Silver underwear in beige or white. Can't see a panty line but maybe because my TS' are a little baggy in the rear area. And they are very comfy.

                                      I will wear a thong on occasion when wearing light colored fitted pants when I go out as the panty line is much more visible.

                                        There is NOTHING about my a$$ that says it should be in a thong. Also, I noticed this summer the sweat patterns of people wearing thongs was very visisble. <shudder>
