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!

    Your favorite jeans for riding?

    The bigger and stretchier, the better.

    Levis, hands down.

      Tx. Which style?


      • #4
        Wrangler Auras, no question. Pretty much the only jeans I will ride in.

            (they run large so buy a size smaller)

              I second the Wrangler Aura. A little bit of stretch for comfort, they come up higher in the back so you don't have to worry about plumber's crack but they're a little lower in the front so you don't feel like the waist is up around your boobs. You have your choice of three different rises and and a few different leg lengths so you can get what feels best for you. At least they did the last time I bought them, which was a few years ago - hopefully they haven't changed around the fit. And they're "vanity sized", so you're supposed to buy one size smaller than your normal size.

              I haven't tried the Wrangler Cash or Q-Baby yet, they're supposedly designed specifically for comfort in the saddle.
              It's not about the color of the ribbon but the quality of the ride. Having said that, I'd like the blue one please!


              • #8
                Either old Levis or Tommy Hilfiger boyfriend jeans (the nonstretch). I cannot stand anything that stretches. I like straight up cotton jeans and I prefer them a little big.

                  Same here. The flat-felled inseams are MADE for riding. Rode a lot of miles in Levis, with no sore legs.

                    I like the wrangler q-baby's. The darkest wash is the most comfortable to me, because it has the most stretch. I don't understand why they did this, but each color has a different percentage of Lycra and a different fabric weight. I have the darkest wash which is most comfortable but the dark color makes them hot in the sun, and I have the medium color which tends to stretch out really quick. Within 30 minutes they are baggy like most jeans get after a day or 2. They're also shorter than my dark pair even though the inseam is supposed to be the same. They're okay to ride in though. It seems like the crotch is wider so you don't get bunching up. I just wish all the colors were actually the same jeans. You have to try them all because they fit differently.


                    • #11
                      I ride in the Q-Baby jeans, too. I buy a size that's a little too small, and by the time I've worn them 1/2 hour they fit great. Otherwise they're too stretchy and look like clown pants at the end of the day. I buy the medium wash, forget the exact name, and the 38 inch inseam so I get the stack I like. Used to only wear the traditional Wranglers, but I prefer these now.


                      • #12
                        I like my Cruel Girls, both the traditional styles and the new prettier ones. Although my current favorite pair for riding are Rock 47s and for showing are Rock 'n Roll Cowgirls.


                        • #13
                          I love my Wranglers and happen to be wearing them right now at work. Unfortunately, without taking my pants off at work I cannot find out what kind of Wranglers I'm wearing... I'm pretty sure that would be frowned upon around here


                          • #14
                            I've got a pair of Wrangler Cash jeans for riding. I bought them because they're 100% cotton (i.e. no stretch) and I was sick of my jeans stretching out.

                            Turns out I actually prefer to have a bit of stretch while riding, so next time I'll buy the Q-Baby jeans (same fit, just with stretch).

                            For my "going out" jeans I love my Wrangler Rock 47. I was hesitant to try them on since they're labeled "ultra low rise" jeans, as most of those don't cover my a$$ crack. But ultra low rise to Wranger is very different than Rock N Roll or Cruel Girl!

                              WRANGLER Q-BABYS

                              They have stretch so they don't feel like a straight jacket

                              The waist has elastic, so they feel fitted but not restrictive; this also prevents the gap in the back when in the saddle

                              The inside seam is flat = NO RUBBING!

                              These are the ONLY jeans I will ride in!

                                Equissentials has a stretch denim that I LOVE. You can add whatever amount of deerskin patch, etc that you want. You can even do fringe. The website is currently under revision, so no access right now. Bummer!

                                    Rode in Wrangler Aura jeans for years until they came out with Q-Baby...won't ever look back, they are the most comfortable riding jeans ever! Mine haven't ended up looking saggy at the end of the day. Looser yes, but not saggy nor baggy.

                                    I love the amount of stretch, the waist band, that inside seam, and the colors offered. Can't wait for Congress to pick up more on sale.

                                      I love Wrangler Cash, I haven't tried the Qbaby. My mom had both, and loved the Cash so much she bought 2 pair for me. I may have to try the Qbaby, seems like a lot of people like those.
