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!

          You might want to post your question on the dressage or eventing sections.

          Most h/j riders do not generally wear full seats and they are not acceptable to show in in a hunter or eq ring. Every once in a while you will see a jumper rider wearing them but it is unusual... most wear the standard knee patch variety.

            I do h/j and I wear nothing but f/s breeches. I didn't know it wasn't acceptable for show cuz I've seen it before.

              Are you showing a local circuit or USEF A rated shows? I don't show that many As right now but I haven't full seats outside of jumpers. Haven't seen them on the local level either.

                I haven't seen any full seat leather lined breeches...even over in jumper land which is where they do pop up time to time.

                Now I do see a lot of those Euro seat style breeches...is that what you are seeing?

                  I agree, I love the fabric Ovation uses and they come in knee patch versions as well.

                      OVATION ULTRA DX

                      I do not ride dressage but my sister does. She keeps telling me that her Ovation full seats actually keep her seat dry in the summer. No sweat encrusted full seats. Seems like that is really a big issue.
                      The fabric is very euro but the DRILEX [sp?] inner skin keeps her dry.. very cool..{.oops sorry}

                      Anyway here is a link

                        The Ovation Dri-lex are great. You don't realize how much your legs sweat until you wear these. Wore them on show jump day at a very hot, humid, event this summer and they worked amazing. I have both the leather seat and the suede seat. The leather seat gives you lots of grip, the suede seat just a little more but I actually like the suede seat more. I own like 7 or so pairs of these now because I wear them on a daily basis. The original ones I had I was using just to go XC and show jump in, after the 40th or so wash they started to pill a little bit but nothing drastic. I've gotten great use out of mine and will continue to wear and buy these pants. The price is very reasonable and the fabric really does wick away moisture.

                        I have the Kerrits Sit Tights too...they are okay nothing special. The first time I wore them they made a horrible squeaking noise when I would post from the full seat rubbing against the leather saddle. Of course I was on a straight green bean who was petrified of me being up there with this noise. It sounded like duct tape ripping every time I posted! I can't say these are my favorites but after a wash or so that squeaking hasn't happened again.

                        Good luck in your search. I event and do the jumpers. I wear full seats in all phases of eventing as well as when I show in the jumpers. I love them.

                          I just realized your beginning post said the Ovation Microweave breeches. I have those too, they are pretty good however the best from the ovation line is the Ovation Euroweave. Both breeches have the drilex in the fullseat which is useful however the Euroweave fabric is 4 way stretch and wicks away moisture. I prefer the Euroweaves to the Microweaves.

                              Well the ones I meant were the Ultra DX ones I'm not sure bout them though cuz I can't find a tack shop that carries them I like my kerrits cuz they are durable and my other Ovations the stiching is coming apart after only a few rides..

                              Are the Ultra DX water resistant also? I'd love to find something I won't mind wearing to bathe and when it rains. Any other thoughts on the Ovations as far as fit etc?

                                Do the Ovation Ultra DX fit like the nicer, more expensive breeches? I tried a bunch of breeches on recently and, man, the cheaper ones are not very flattering! Of course the ones that fit perfectly were the $300+ Pikeurs (gorgeous!) that were this very hi-tech kind of material. ..Okay it's been a while since I've tried on breeches. I'm sure these cool fabrics are not a news flash for most.

                                Are the Ovation's a similar hi-tech fabric?

                                  IIRC, they are not expressly forbidden, but in hunters, you don't want to draw attention to the fact that your horse isn't smooth and therefore you need extra stick - most judges will look twice and wonder why you're wearing them. In eq, you DEFINITELY don't want to draw attention to the fact that you need extra stick. In jumpers or for schooling, no one cares.

                                    I HATE the griptek fabric that Kerrits uses. It's like rubber and it really sticks, so much that I find it impossible to use my leg effectively. It also makes a squeaky noise against the saddle. I got a pair from TOTD and wore them only once, waste of money.

                                      I LOVE Irideon Cadence full seats, super comfortable. I also have a pair of the Kerritts sit tight full seats. After some wear time they're not so sticky but at first they will just stop short of gluing you down. After some wear now I actually really like them. Great for greenies.
