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!

  • Favorite Riding Jeans?

    My go-to barn jeans are about to kick the bucket, and I'm looking for something made for riding to replace them, and maybe to wear to some (very) local shows.

    What are your favorite brands/styles of riding jeans? Do Wranglers exist that don't look like "mom jeans"?

    Suggestions appreciated.

    I like the Aura line by Wrangler. There are several different styles and cuts. I can only find them online though, they are $40 on amazon.com

      I second the Wrangler Auras. The lower cut ones fit me well and are high enough waisted to ride in without them riding down, but not so high cut I feel like I'm wearing "old man" pants. Mine have held up pretty well to the daily abuse and washing of being barn jeans as well.

        For shows and nice occasions I like the Wrangler Shilos, they are low cut but have a little elastic in the waistband so that they don't gap. For everyday I like the bootcut Old Navy jeans, they last about a year for everyday use, and I'm very hard on jeans!

                I like the Wranglers (wearing a pair now) but depending on your build / style I've found that I like the Adiktd, Rock n Roll Cowgirl, and Cruel Girl styles. Same comfort / stretch as the Wrangler Aura / Rock 47 but a little more stylish. I've got all 4 brands in my show wardrobe, depending on what shirt I'm wearing and what mood I'm in.

                The key seems to be to find a shop(s) that carry a number of brands and styles and be willing to put the time in to trying on as many pairs and styles as it takes to find what you like / what looks good on you.

                    Finding a store that carries a ton of western jeans is going to be a challenge in my area, it's a h/j dominated community. But I know a couple hours of jeans-trying-on is in my future! I have a small waist, bigger hips, and a curvy butt, so finding pants is always a challenge. :-P Thanks for the recommendations.

                        Wrangler Q-Baby. Bought them from Amazon--not more than $35 a pair and the most AWESOME comfortable jeans ever.

                              Maybe I'm weird...well, I know I'm weird.
                              I LIKE the old-style Wranglers. And the Big R store almost always has some in the slightly irregular, $10 per pair pile. They are comfortable for me, though I'm sure they do come across as a mom-jeans look.
                              However, they are made out of heavier denim, which is necessary if you aren't just riding, but working/vaccinating/AI breeding cows/fencing with barbed wire. The lighter, stretchy jeans are comfy but they just get torn up too easily for me.
                              Yeah, the waist is way up high but that is really comfortable on me, especially when I'm riding.
                              And in my neck of the woods, the Wranglers like this will never, ever get you a strange look. They're sort of an official uniform.

                                I like Q-baby better than Aura. A bit more stretch and I like the leg better. The Aura does have a heavier weight, which is nice in winter. Aura thigh seems bigger than the Q.
                                Inseam also seems less thick with the Q. Important for my comfort.

                                  I've had a bear of a time finding riding jeans. I have long legs (37in inseam) and I guess thin legs for my size. I've tried all Wranglers and Cruel Girls, and none seem to fit right because if I get ones that fit my hips, they're way too baggy around the knee and chafe

                                  It's also extremely hard to find jeans with 37in inseam. I've found that Miss Me jeans, while expensive, are the most comfortable for me to ride in. I wish I could make a pair of jeans that fit like Miss Me's with the elastic waistband of the wrangler q-babys haha

                                  Despite the bagginess around the knees for me, the q-baby's are pretty dang comfortable!
                                  After some rocky health issues, I am back in the saddle and getting fitter everyday!

                                    I would suggest the Wrangler Jet jean for everyday riding...they are the boot it mid-rise style of the Cash combined with the stretch fabric and no gab waist band of the Q-baby--without the Mom jean high waist..lol.

                                    For something a bit fancier try the newer Rock Baby...several are made for gals with smaller waists and curvier hips.

                                    And it sounds like you are familiar with Wrangler, but I will remind you that their sizing is very forgiving. Check the size charts, they are correct, but be ready to order a size down from most other pants.

                                    Good luck in your search.

                                      I wear the Old Navy bootcut for everyday, too. They last me about a year and are comfy on me. I'm 5' on a good hair day, short waisted and curvy. They have just enough stretch and the low waists don't ride too high but still cover my bits. DH and I also ride motorcycles and if it's chilly I wear my bike chaps over my jeans to ride.

                                      I'm going to check my local TS for the Wrangler Auras, tho...a riding girl can't have too many jeans!

                                        I ride in Qbaby, plus they have awesome size options for the super tall, in case anyone needs that.
