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.

  • Fit of various Tailored Sportsman breeches

    Hi all - I am trying to find new breeches for schooling and would love some guidance on sizing for them. ie. which fit larger, which run small etc. I have the TS schooling breeches which don't fit me, seemed like they run small. How about the Trophy Hunter, Royal Hunter or Supreme Hunter? also, what is the difference between the 2 way and 4 way stretch from a sizing perspective? I'm going to be ordering online so I just want to have some idea of which tend to fit smaller and which are closer to size etc.

    DD has the Royal Hunter, 2 way stretch with the regular rise and they fit great. She tried the 4 way stretch on because they were on sale but they were way too big in the seat (which in her case isn't very padded)

      A couple of years ago when I was a 28 my Royal Hunters were a perfect fit but the Supremes (4-way) were always too full, no matter what size I tried. But for some reason the TS schooling breeches always fit me well, regardless of what size I am currently at. Its too bad because I really love the fabric of the Supremes best. I recently tried on the Trophy Hunter style and they fit me well too.

        I find the Trophy Hunters are perhaps a bit looser in the waist than either my Supremes or my TS pro's. Maybe it's the wider waistband? But their low rise is LOW - lower than either my TS Pros or Supremes. (This works for me since I am fairly short waisted; regular rise breeches end up coming half way up my chest, LOL.)

        I agree with BAC that the Supremes are cut fuller throughout. The Royal Hunters I think suit thin figures very well; on people like me with hips, they are not quite so flattering. And personally I find the 2 way stretch confining; they do hold their shape better (no sagging in the seat) but I don't find them quite as comfortable to ride in. Overall I'd say the Trophy Hunters were the most comfortable of my TS breeches, but the Pros are a very close second.
        We move pretty fast for some rabid garden snails.

          expect failure if youre buying online! well maybe thats extreme, but i would have probably failed at buying them online if i'd never tried them on!!

          if the schoolies do not fit you, then the supremes will not fit you--the schoolies are cut the same way the supremes are, just that they're made of cotton and run a tiny bit tighter probably because of that. (i go up one size for the schoolies but they are cut to the same shape and proportions)

          NO other ts breeches fit me comfortably. i don't remember what the trophy hunters fit like, but i know that the royals are NOT as stretchy as the supremes, and the leg runs a lot smaller. it was very very tight in the calf, and it seemed like if you had any kind of butt at all, they would be tight in the area. however, i remember the hips being very wide--but then not having enough room. thisis hard to explain. okay, so if a person is standing facing you, the space from hip to hip or what have you is going to be their width. from their front to their back is going to be depth. it seems like these pants are very wide but do not have much of any depth, if that makes sense. i am short and curvy, and my hips just werent nearly wide enough yet at the same time, i felt like i was trying to be squeezed into sometihng way too small, it had no room or stretch in the leg or the butt going depth wise.

          hope that helps, sorry its confusing

          so more simply: if you're curvy--even if youre skinny but have curves or fuller figured, or if you have bigger muscular legs, or a 'ghetto' booty, you will fit into the supremes or the schoolies. if you've got a board for a bum, your best bet is the royals

            As others have said, the two-way will definitely fit slimmer than the four way. The Royals don't stretch hardly at all and definitely run on the slim side. The Trophys are very stretchy, but they hold their shape nice. I would say they are in between. The Supremes are very stretchy too and seem to run a little bigger than the others. The Professionals are in the middle too.

            If you don't like how the schooling breechs fits, you probably won't like the Royals.

            I personally prefer the Royals, Professionals, and the Trophy low rise. They all hold their shape nicely and flatter my body type. You really need to try them all on though, as everyone is different.

              In my experience, the Supremes and Trophy Hunter are roomier than the rest. I like the 4 way stretch best.
