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!

  • Equine Couture breeches...

    Can anyone comment on how these breeches run? I won a gift card to an online store that carries them and I've always wanted to try a pair but have never seen them in stores. I'm a 26 (loose) or kids 16 in TS Trophy, and a 24/kids 16 in Ariat All Circuits. I'm just not sure whether to go 26 or 24. And if anyone is familiar with them, do you have opinions on the quality between the Heritage, Nottingham, and F3 models? Thanks so much! I never win anything so I'm pretty excited!

    My DD has a pair but I can't think of the style - I ordered a 24 for her, she's a 26 in TS and a 24 in Ariat. Pbly same size as you

      Okay thanks. How does she like them?

        She likes them a lot - they're very comfortable and just happen to be her "lucky" breeches, so worn A LOT during the show season. Unfortunately, they have a little pucker on the leg, so I fear they are not much longer for the show ring.

          They fit like TS breeches but the material is different. I really enjoy the quality and I wear them to show. As an added bonus I got a pair that have pink plaid on the inside of my lower legs, it's covered by my boots when I'm dressed but it's a cute touch otherwise.

            I have a pair of the original F3 breeches and I love them. They run a little larger in the waist than my TS breeches, and I much prefer the elastic panel at the bottom of the leg to the velcro closures you find on other breeches. The ones I have are piped in blue on the pockets, kind of a nice touch I think. They have been my one of my favorite breeches for a while. I noticed they changed the styling recently (last year?) and haven't been able to find the piped ones again, but if you come across them, they're lovely.

              I bought a different style from the ones you listed that was on closeout ("Geneva Schooling Breech) and while I liked that they were fun and fashionable for schooling, I did notice two drawbacks:

              - Cut not right for me, waist was proper for size 30 but the butt was a little roomy. And I don't have a teeny butt

              - They did shrink and now unfortunately the velcro doesn't meet around my leg. It hits me below the calf and I'm going to have to sew in an extra piece - wish I had option to buy 30L.

              I think JPC makes EC? They also make TuffRider and a host of other labels. Sorry I can't tell you more about the exact breeches you are looking at

                Are these the ones you have: http://www.theequestriancorner.com/p...0-1002-110070? I like the look of those and these: http://www.theequestriancorner.com/p...20-1002-110121. It looks like they have brown piping on the pockets.

                Thanks for all the input everyone!

                    The first ones you list (with either the blue or pink plaid panels) are the ones that I like. I bought a pair with brown piping after the others were disco'd... to be honest I didn't like them nearly as much.

                      I have the Tuscany breeches, which I like and don't like.

                      Pros:
                      -Love the rise...I prefer low rise breeches and these are a nice flattering cut.
                      -Durable. Not sure what the fabric is, but they are pretty hardy. I have a few pairs of breeches with pulls from hitting the corners of track trunks and stuff, and that definitely wouldn't harm these breeches.
                      -Nice enough to show in, subtle piping on the front pockets (another plus!).

                      Cons:
                      -Color. Online, they brownish, but this particular pair is definitely more of that greenish beige color. If you're not a fan of that hue I'd stay away from the Tuscany model.
                      -Material. While the durability is a plus, this stuff almost feels like nylon. It could be a little slippery on the wrong saddle. It's kinda thick and might deter those looking for a closer-contact material. The inside is almost abrasive, but not so much so that it's uncomfortable. This could also just be this particular "model" of pants.

                      Overall, quality stuff, but I'd try on a pair before buying!

                        Yes, yes, and yes to everything *jumper* has just said! I have a pair of the Tuscanys and the ones with the pink piping/plaid on the lower leg. Love them both. Showed in both last week and this week. The biggest thing i DON"T like is that the bottoms have this kind of hard scratchy elastic on the bottom instead of a velcro (which I prefer). They dug into my ankles for quite a while.

                        As far as fit goes, I'm exactly an 28 in Ariats and my ECs are both 28s. They are a touch roomier in the hips but fit pretty similarly. I cannot for the life of me wear TS (i can't button the waist and it looks like i'm carrying a load in my pants).
