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!

  • Britches without the saggy butt

    ok so i have a pair of Ariat Brittany ( i think?) and my i get the baggy butt when i wear them..so i've been borrowing my trainer's and they're better for sure, but what brand is better about that??

    sorry if that came across as really pervy, honest question here ha.

  • #2
    My Ariats have the saggy butt dilemma as well. I am so angry about it. Great looking breeches until the material across the butt got all stretched out. Happened with Sport side and front zips ($100) but luckily I bought them for only $30 so no major loss. The All Circuits (a different material, $140) don't seem to have this problem.


    • #3
      I think the solution is usually just to buy them pretty fitted. Obviously not show-every-bump-and-ripple tight, but you don't want to buy them already fitting baggy.


      • #4
        Mine fit very tight when I bought them, size 22. The still fit nice and tight through the waist, thigh and calf. The material near the seam in the seat is just all misshapen for some reason, I could post a picture but I'm not sure I want to post a picture of that.

          Being a male, I haven't seen too many ladies butts that look good in breeches. No fault of your own, ladies! Just the way they are cut. Ya'll should unite and demand something better from breech makers.


          • #6
            I love my Ariat Brittanys. They fit great. It's the Ariat Calvary that I hate.

              It's funny that you say that. A non horsey guy friend of mine was looking at some pics of riders that I had taken down in Florida and he said "damn do those pants just make every girl's butt look awesome or what?"

              I'm inclined to think I look terrible in breeches. Especially white ones. Yuck.

              I don't think any of my TS breeches suffer from this saggy butt phenomenon. I have royal hunters, side zip trophy hunter and the low rise TS. No saggy butts (at least not the pants!). I've worn all for 12+ hour days a million times.

                For me, its not the britches. I have a saggy butt...


                • #9
                  There is just so many rounds you can watch at a horse show. Sometimes, being a male, you have to do some good old fashion girl watching. Too bad they can't make breech seats as good as jean seats. If they did that, I probably end up forgetting my courses I was memorizing...:-(


                  • #10
                    It's just those dang Ariat Sports with the saggy butt! Oh and anything ribbed, oh boy does that make you look 10 lbs heavier. My Ariat All-Circuits are extremely flattering, IMO.


                    • #11
                      I've found that the breeches with the Euro seat are not as saggy. I have a pair of the Tailored Sportsman low rise trophy hunters that seem to be holding up well.

                      I think that this type of seat is most flattering for the butt. Traditional tailored sportsmans, on the other hand, have the seam that runs at an angle across the side of the hip to the knee, which I think is most flattering for the thigh.

                        I was riding for Tim Stockdale last November and he even commented about how unflattering American breeches were on women (I was wearing Tailoreds at the time). I shall have to ask him what he recommends. I was mortified!

                          I have not bought breeches since 1998 so I cant comment on newer brands like Ariat. I have always worn Harry Hall and Kentucky and they are skin tight on my booty. I know you can find tons of Harry Hall breeches on eBay if you know what size you are. They are like a second skin and so are the Kentucky's.

                            i show in an old pair of pytchley's that suffer from the sad affliction of saggy butt. none of my other britches are nice enough to step foot in the show ring, unfortunately! they fit nicely when i first put them on, but after a couple hours my butt is lost in them. dear bf is NOT happy about this. (he's a butt man ) i tell him he can buy me a new pair of show britches if it makes him that upset. hehe.

                                LOL! the conversation went something like, "babe... don't you have any tighter pants? those ones are so... baggy. i mean you have an awesome butt but those just look... weird. i think you should get some tighter ones."

                                "well i'd be happy to if you would like to fund the $100+ it would take to make that happen!"

                                    I almost got him to buy my low rise ones months ago too. He kept making fun of how goofy I looked in the regular granny rise royal hunters. I'm five foot nothing and extremely short waisted so they end up just under my chest and I do in fact look ridiculous with a show shirt tucked into them.

                                    I want to try Pikeurs but I don't want to pay for them. I have no problem with the $130-220 that I spend on various TS breeches, but the Pikeurs are over $300 and that just seems like too much.

                                      I don't notice saggy butt in my TS's. But then again, I have a lot of butt to fill the breeches with anyway, so they don't have much chance to sag.
