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!

  • RJ Classics Sterling side zip breeches?

    I just snagged a pair of RJ Classics side zip breeches on Ebay from EquusNow (I love Rose!) They are the Sterling collection, in a color called aubergine (looks like a brownish with purple undertones to me) I think they look similar to Tailored Sportsman's mocha color. The price was right, so I couldn't turn 'em down.

    Anyone have a pair of these? How do they fit in comparison to TS breeches? I'm not worried about the color, since they'll be for schooling anyway. They retail for $109, and I got them for less than half of that. I've had a couple of RJ's coats and really loved them, but this will be my first pair of their breeches.

    I dont have these (yet) but I have a few pairs from Rolex. I wear the same size in these as I do in 4ways.

    I just bought a pair too from Equus Now and Im interested in seeing how they fit in comparison to the others. I love the 3 pairs I have now and was excited to see them on there! Sorry I wasnt much help =)

      I got a pair of RJ's a few years ago and really liked them. I can't remember what collection they were from though. I showed in mine almost every weekend from spring to November I think 2 seasons ago and I still wore them every now and then after that. Still have them and they are in ok condition. I liked them overall A little bit longer than I like pants but that was the only thing I didn't really like. Maybe I should go buy another pair if they are that cheap on ebay!

        They're good breeches. I think they're very well made, they just didn't fit me. TS fits me like a glove. I have a few pairs of ariat all-circuits for schooling that do fit but just not as perfectly as my TS schoolies do. the RJ breeches never really fit me (and it's too bad! they have a pretty shade of dark purple for one of their schooling breeches!! id snag them if i fit in them) so it could be hit or miss as far as fit goes--if you can fit perfect in TS and sort-of fit comfortably in ariat, the RJ's *might* not fit you. Or theyll fit you perfect! Youll find out whenever they arrive at the doorstep for you to try on

          Oooh, I may have to check eBay! I've been coveting some of the colored breeches.

          I LOVE my RJs! The pairs I've had wear very well, and come out of the washer looking like new. One pair I snagged a seam on some velcro on boots and it's pulled out, but the breeches have held up very well in spite of this.

          TS fit me funny--I find them too short and disporportionate on me. Ariats fit me better, but neither fit me as well as the RJs do. Don't think I'll ever wear anything else for showing.

            This right here is the biggest bonus of RJs! They say dry clean only, but i toss them in the washer (on regular even) and they come out just fine! I snagged some nice ones at Rolex for $65 a pair and kept one clean to show in. Im not sure what line those are but they have super cute paisley on the knee patches and small trim on the pockets. I love them!

            And def check ebay-I paid less than $30 for mine (though I bet this thread will drive the prices up if they list them again) =)

              Thanks for the replies. Hopefully they will arrive today, looking forward to getting them. Not sure if there are any more listed on Ebay at the moment, but they were a fantastic deal.

                It was Equusnow who had them on eBay, you might try contacting them directly if you're interested in buying more. Though maybe those were overstock/discontinued colors/odds and ends?

                  I find that they fit very similar to the TS, but the rise on the RJs is lower than either my TS or my TS trophy hunters.

                    They came in yesterday and fit nicely! They are low rise, but not too bad, sit just below my hips. The color is very pretty~ think TS mocha with just a slight purple undertone and shouldn't show dirt at all. For the money, I'm pleased with them, they'll be perfect for schooling!

                      i went to ride in mine today and they are defective! Im super bummed and emailed Rose at Equus Now. The velcro on the bottom of one leg has two of the same sides, so its impossible to close up. I asked if I could swap them out and hope they are willing to do so! I was excited since they are a really pretty color and I love RJ breeches =)

                        Once I'm breech huntin' again I think I might be going after a pair of these! I'd like something I don't revere enough to fear wearing them hard like I do my TSs.
