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 may be better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts, though are not legally obligated to do so, regardless of content.

Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting. Moderators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts unless they have been alerted and have determined that a post, thread or user has violated the Forums� policies. Moderators do not regularly independently monitor the Forums for such violations.

Profanity, outright vulgarity, blatant personal insults or otherwise inappropriate statements will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

Users may provide their positive or negative experiences with or opinions of companies, products, individuals, etc.; however, accounts involving allegations of criminal behavior against named individuals or companies MUST be first-hand accounts and may NOT be made anonymously.

If a situation has been reported upon by a reputable news source or addressed by law enforcement or the legal system it is open for discussion, but if an individual wants to make their own claims of criminal behavior against a named party in the course of that discussion, they too must identify themselves by first and last name and the account must be first-person.

Criminal allegations that do not satisfy these requirements, when brought to our attention, may be removed pending satisfaction of these criteria, and we reserve the right to err on the side of caution when making these determinations.

Credible threats of suicide will be reported to the police along with identifying user information at our disposal, in addition to referring the user to suicide helpline resources such as 1-800-SUICIDE or 1-800-273-TALK.

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!

  • Tips for keeping a horse fit with in-hand work?

    I'm 15 years old and am currently on a medication called Accutane for the treatment of acne, as a side effect my joint fluid has been "dried up" leading to pain and inflammation. It's also caused inflammation around nerves in my lower back/sacrum. I won't be able to ride for another 4-5 months but I'm so worried about my gelding losing all of his fitness that I spent so long building. Are there any in hand exercises I can do for now? I can be out there every day If necessary. I thought about just paying my trainer to exercise him, but he's only available once a week as is and I'd perfer if the other boarders didn't ride him. Unfortunately as of right now I can't even Jog alongside him. Give me your opinions, should I just go ahead and hire someone or give him a few months to rest and start fresh?

      I've still got 3 months left out of my 6 month treatment, if I stop now it's a guarantee that my acne will come back but I don't think its really worth not being able to do what i love. Trying to choose.

        Quit the accutane now. Those side effects are insane. You can use a topical antibiotic for acne. It's crazy to mess up your entire body for the sake of your skin. Quit now.

          Where are you? Apparently accutane has been discontinued in the USA and you are experiencing severe side effects that are a sign to stop now. What you are going through in insane.https://www.rxlist.com/accutane-side...consumermultum

          Yeah, googled some more and the joint pain is a rare and serious side effect and could cause permanent damage.

            Scribbler One doesn’t just get put on accutane (or more accurately, one of the generic formulations) for regular old acne. Believe me, I’ve had noticeable acne since I was seven and even with that, and going through OTC topicals, prescription topicals, birth control, and even oral antibiotics with no lasting success, no dermatologist would sign off on it. You need to be suffering from painful and often disfiguring cystic acne to get a dermatologist to sign off on it. And assuming OP is a woman, they’re under strict care from their doctor. Women can’t get refills without both the patient and doctor signing off on a negative pregnancy test. I have had one family member take it, and it was the only product that worked. And his skin has stayed within normal levels of clear for two decades since since. Accutane is not a drug handed out willy nilly, and frankly it’s probably a couple dozen times easier to get a prescription for opiates in the States than it is accutane.
            Pinto.powerhouse, if your medication is causing this much of an impact in your daily life, call your healthcare provider (or have a parent or guardian call) and chat with them about your risks and options. But don’t take medical advice from complete strangers on the internet. That’s just stupid.

              Ok maybe I overstated. But I still think the side effects the OP is describing are really scary and are definitely rated rare and serious on the medical websites. At the least a serious conversation with the doctor about whether there is lasting damage.

                I do not suffer from cystic acne, but I did have tons of whiteheads/blackheads that didn't respond to any topical or antibiotic treatments. My bloodwork is normal so my derm has kept me on it, mum took me to an orthopedic surgeon and they took imaging of my knees/hips, didn't find any arthritic changes but definitely inflammation causing pain. I told the derm I could wait out the 3 months but I will not be going into another treatment of accutane.

                  Yes, it's been banned here. I live in the US, the medication I'm on is called Roaccutane which is basically just a generic that works the exact same way. As long as I don't suffer from any permanent damage I don't mind. If it gets any worse I'll have to either lower my dose or be pulled off of it.

                    You could try long reining,the best thing to do would be to buy a book with photographs to help you along.
                    Jennie Loriston Clark wrote a good one several years ago so I am sure you can find a used one online.
                    Check out YouTube there are several trainers that work in hand, and have instructional videos.
                    Of course longing with side reins , ideally if you have not done any of theses things it would be best to have a trainer come and work with you.
