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!

  • Speaking of panty lines....

    During my adult ammy lesson yesterday the women and I got to speaking of our preferences. One woman goes commando, another thongs when showing, another full coverage. Arguments were that the full coverage prevents too much, um... stimulation. Thongs gave coverage where it's needed but no lines (seemed like a world's worst wedgie to me).
    My argument for not going commando was that you couldn't wear breeches more than one day ;-)
    So what are your thoughts ;-) just thought this would be a fun topic. We were all rolling!

    I'm totally pro thongs when showing because I HATE panty lines. I can't imagine going commando! I promise that thongs aren't like the world's worst wedgie Wear it for a while and you'll never even know it's there!

      I always try to wear full panties, or boy shorts. I do get some panty lines, but I feel like my breeches are dark colored, and I wear a bright shirt to draw the eyes up. One day I wore light colored breeches I didn't quite fit into... They were a little baggy. For whatever reason, I didn't put on full coverage undies that day and had a thong on (a very small one).

      Wouldn't you know that I fell off that day, and apparently ripped out the entire crotch of my pants. To this day I have no idea if my trainer let me climb on knowing about this gaping hole, or if she was just as shocked when her and the rest of my lesson saw pale cheek and hoo haa that was ready for a wax hanging out as I jumped the line that gave me trouble... To this day, nobody has said a word. I was rather mortified when I got home and discovered this.

        One of my friends wears thongs... I cannot for the life of me be comforable in those things.

        Her comment is - "thats were regular panties end up anyway".. OUCH.

        Sorry but in the search for nice panties I found when I was pregnant I bought some really nice maternity undies... from Motherhood Maternity..

        They are THE BEST... and I will wear NOTHING else.... So yeah - I still shop at the Maternity store....

        I wear them for riding - Heres a pix of my fanny over a jump -

        No pantie lines!!!

        Heres a light color breech w/ my maternity undies.. no lines: (warning - it's a big fanny shot)

          I usually wear a thong, breeches are so thin, and i am super opposed to lines!


          • #6
            I used to wear control top nylons, but of course those get a little toasty in the hot weather (I still wear them for warmth when it is colder), but I have now discovered "Spanx" from Nordstroms. They are like a girdle I guess for lack of a better word, but they are light, stay in place and give you no panty lines, plus smooth out any lumps and bumps if needed ;-).


            • #7
              I wear a thong. That said I ALWAYS wear one. I started a good 15 years ago and they are comfy to me as it is now my norm. I teach skiing in one and many people at work think it sounds horrible too.. but when it's what you are used to.. it's normal. Riding in something else would likely be weird to me and I don't have much else to chose from.

              Riding in one to prevent panty lines and not have it be your usual would likely feel awful though. Can't say it's the reason I do it though.


              • #8
                FWIW I wear a thong virtually all the time when I am not on a horse. I have been paranoid about my situation happening, and my fears turned to reality the one day I wore one to the barn!

                  Who would show with no undies on, that's just not right.

                    I got new for all you thong wearers... you still have panty lines. They're just higher up.

                      your far better if working all day with a horse to wear girls boxers

                        Commando? That would be the one day I fall off and end up in the hospital and they have to cut off my clothing to fix me....
                        Are panty lines THAT embarrassing?


                        • #13
                          I just wear bikini style or boy shorts. If people are busy studying my bum to see if I have panty lines, that's not my problem -- I'd rather focus on my riding.

                            Has anyone ever tried the "panties" from Dover that boast no pantie lines? I'm dubious. Haha.

                              I only ride in thongs when I'm showing. At home it's either boy shorts or bikinis. I started wearing thongs to show in back when I was in high school and it's now just become a habit. I'm not THAT opposed to VPL.

                                Hanes Perfect Panty boyshorts. i think they renamed them recently - (ETA: yep. Hanes Tagless Opaque Boyshorts) they are almost the texture of pantyhose or some thin nylon material, yet they're really breathable too.

                                ZERO panty lines.
                                ZERO crotch seams/bunching
                                ZERO issue, period.

                                i get mine at target, packs are like $10 for 3 i think....on horseback, they are vastly superior to even my most expensive and comfortable thongs - it is literally like these underwear don't exist. they are even thinner than they appear on the site. the white look thicker for some reason - it's a bit misleading.

                                buy them now, thank me later.

                                  I also like Spanx - if it isn't sweltering hot. Otherwise, I just go with the VPL. At least my heavier breeches don't show as badly.

                                    I always show in thongs and usually school in them as well. I have found if you wear them consistently, you will get used to them. Type of material is very important.. the softer the better. They also have sports thongs which are often soft, breathable, and usually have an antimicrobial lining.

                                      Any thong wearer will tell you there are thongs, and then there are thongs....
                                      Make sure you wear a newish pair whose elastic still have some snap, or it WILL be the world's worst wedgie, and not just in the back

                                        That's what I was going to say. If you have a figure, you're going to have panty lines no matter what panty/thong or breech you wear. They may not show all the time if your breeches are way loose, but they will show sometimes! The worst look for some with thongs is the strap showing ABOVE the waistband!
