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!

      They call them thongs, but they aren't really. They don't "go there", they stay where you put them.

        Try microfiber boy shorts. The leg lines are below your butt so you don't see them. A slick-ish material will slide against the breeches, too, and reduce rubbing. Try to avoid the tacky-ish material; it's not comfy [shudder] on hot, damp skin...

          For me, I can wear regular cotton undies and not get panty lines as long as the fit is just right. Even a little too small or too large, and that's when the panty lines seem to show.

            Hm, I am guilty of riding in thongs before I found this specific piece of VS underwear

            They are the best and do not show even under my thin white dressage show breeches. There are no lines whatsoever.

              There was an article about this in COTH just the other day:


              I wear any brand that says "seamless" but if it's not too hot, pantyhose work best.

                honestly, I wear nothing. Its just too much of a pain in the ***.

                  STOP the madness!!!! Just wear some nice bikini underwear. I've never understood the panty line drama. Personally, I if your underwear fit properly (i.e. not too tight) panty lines shouldn't be a big problem with nice, thin underwear. Everyone wears it. (well, not anymore, but it's NORMAL to wear underwear)

                  As a volleyball player and horseback rider (you've all seen volleyball players, right? Spandex? a.k.a. butt cheeks hanging out for some of the classier ladies)

                  If you wear a thong, we can tell. I would much rather know that you're wearing nice, conservative, normal underwear than have to watch your butt jiggle as you trot away. You can tell if you're wearing a thong, and no matter how skinny you are, it is NOT a good look. A bunch of girls on my volleyball team wear thongs, and YOU CAN TELL.

                  Wear bikini underwear made from thin fabric. I wear normal, bikini underwear, and I have never felt the need to do anything other than that.

                  NORMAL UNDERWEAR.

                  ETA: my trainer formally banned thongs. Not a good look ladies.

                    UnderArmor underwear is the best. It's like $20 a pair but no chafing, no bunching up and no panty lines even under my super thin schooling tights. Of course I personally have trouble spending $20 for a pair of underwear so I only have 2 pairs that were gifts. Riding at home I don't care about panty lines, though, so it's not too bad.

                    Otherwise, just making sure your breeches and underwear both fit properly is best IME.

                      Underarmour (the bike style) and they are 39.00 per pair here but alas, they are worth it I guess and do last for a long time.


                      • #12
                        How about not wearing a pair of breeches that are skin tight! Panty lines don't show if your underwear and breeches (and pants for that matter) fit properly!

                            It looks like these are the same as the VS "Lacie" underwear:

                              Boy shorts. Microfibers that slide and the leg line hides in the folds at the hip bend anyway.

                              Plus if you get cut out of your britches by an EMT you're wearing something.

                                I used to ride in a thong to avoid VPL, but gave up on that one in favor of bikini cut underwear -- to avoid the VPL with the non-thong underwear, I wear Spanx or a thicker nylon pantyhose under my breeches. The extra layer between the underwear and my breeches does the trick!

                                    Boxer-briefs! They're practically like Spanx (without the tummy tucking powers), no?

                                      yea, depends on the kind though. some are snugger than others, the looser ones are no better than boxers.

                                      i like underarmor, or other tightfitting compression shorts...

                                        Thongs.. I only wear thongs for every day, showing, riding whatever - that's all I wear. I don;t even own a pair of granny pannys! I don't even notice it!
