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!

  • low rise breeches with pockets...

    I am looking for some new breeches to buy that are inexpensive, lowrise, and have pockets. Any suggestions?

    I'm considering the Tuff Rider™ Low-Rise Pull-On Riding Breeches, but I'm not sure if they have pockets.

    I like the Riding Sport Competitor breeches. They fit rather big though, so buy a size smaller than normal.

        Ariat Brittanys low rise, they have pockets and are super super comfy - my fav breeches! Not super cheap at 99 bucks but worth it - they last.

          I second the grand prix, but I like the Hamptons...just plain knee patch, side zip, slash pockets. They come in lots of colors, I have pretty much all of them (they are my favorite breeches by far!) Plus they have a wide waist band so they are really comfy. The grey and the french blue (ocean) are my favorites!

            I don't think the pull ons have pockets but I'm not sure. I have a couple pairs of the Tuff Rider Low Rise front zips and they do have a zip pocket. They are ribbed, super comfy, pretty durable, and are my favorite breeches. They are also around $40 and you can find them even cheaper on sale sometimes (sorry but $99 for a pair of schooling breeches is not what I consider cheap! ) . They come in a nice variety of colors also.
            It's not having what you want, it's wanting what you've got.

              They have the little inside pocket on the right side but thats it, not 'real' pockets. With that being said they're comfy and worth the $26 I spent on them, lol.

                  second the Tuff Riders and the Ariat Brittany's. The Brittany's have real pockets, but they don't have zippers so anything you put in there could fall out. The Tuff Riders do have the one zip pocket over the right hip. You could also check out the Ariat Cavalry's, I just got a pair of those for $50. Just like the Brittany's except the material is a little different and the belt loops and pockets have a edge lining that is a different color.

                    RJ Sterling Breeches. Expensive, but worth it. Low rise, HUGE (but not balloony) pockets, stretchy!

                      Oy, I tried the Ariat Brittanys...low-rise was an understatement; I squatted slightly in the fitting room and my butt came out .

                      If you want some pull-ons, I rather like the Kerrits. They have pockets that lay flat when not in use, and are stretchy and fit plenty of cookies, cell phone, gloves, etc. They offer the F-low rise, which is higher in the back but low in the front.

                        Thanks for the suggestions guys!

                        I think I'm gonna go for these. They come in nice colors, are low rise, have zips, and are cheap:

                        Anyone have the Tuff Rider Ribb low rise breeches? (not pull-ons) Should I go for a size down, up, or right size?

                          those are the ones I have, they fit true to size for me. They are pretty stretchy though, so if you do go a little smaller they are forgiving.

                              I have a pair that I love for summer because they aren't too heavy and after four years, they've held up very well. Anyway, I bought the same size as I wear in low rise TS and Ariat breeches (which run a tad bigger than both). Hope this helps....

                                  I love the Tuff Rider Ribb low rise breeches (WITH zippers). They do size "normal" - being waist size. However, I always have to buy the "short" ones. I'm 5'2" with a regular leg length for my height & if I don't get the short then the legs are too long & the velcro at the foot is below my ankle (uncomfortable inside paddock boots!).

                                  They last a long time (yay!) and you can usually find good pricing for them online (lots of sales). The <ahem!> crotch area wears out first, but I can keep a pair for a couple years (riding in them multiple days a week) without them wearing out.

                                  They seem to keep their shape/size with washing, but I usually run them through the delicate cycle anyway (unless they are horribly dirty, then the occasional "normal" cycle).

                                  They aren't show-quality, but are WONDERFUL for daily schooling (and it's nice to have a few different colors - I have khaki, tan, black, that redish one, & blue/grey)

                                    I do. They are definitely comfy, but the knee patches are kind of weird.. perfectly sticky, but weird! I didn't find them to be very low rise, but I have no waist to speak of (the Ariat Brittanys sit ABOVE my waist, for example, and they are "low rise"). They are also pretty big on me... relative to my other breeches, anyway. I wear a 32 in most breeches but could very easily have gotten these in a 30 and been properly sized.
