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!

  • The product of lightning bolt, Pentosan or weekly lesson w/Hilda Gerny-Robert Dover?

    Super duper Cow Pony (APHAwesomeness) has been a super duper dressage and jumping pony as if late...

    could be this:
    Last year, he asked that for his next clip I give him either a L-bolt or a Nike sign.
    http://i128.photobucket.com/albums/p...htningbolt.jpg

    or this:
    (finished 4 doses every 7 days and went to 2 doses every 14 days, just now starting maintenance)
    http://www.heartlandvetsupply.com/p-...ie-equine.aspx

    or my weekly RFDTV lessons with:
    *Robert Dover
    *Jessica Ransehousen
    *Hilda Gurney
    *Michael Poulin

    Cow Pony has been unbelievable. I'd like to say that it's because I'm such an awesome rider now that I've caught the last 3 months of Dressage Symposiums but I'm willing to bet it's the PentAussie.

    Therefore, I give a HUGE shout out for Pentosan.
    He was on Legend and Previcox. We took him off those and now he only gets Pentosan.

    Also, he's bulked up big time just in the last two months.
    We now call him Beef Cake.
    I'm having to use my 38cm saddle too and I just recently had to stop using my home made gusset with the dressage saddle.
    He's an 11 year old so it's not like he's just now "filling out" due to age.
    ~and it's not feed related because we don't feed him.
    (Just alfalfa hay and a multi vitamin)

    weird

    Maybe it's the lightning bolt. Must be...the power of Zeus.

    That's awesome! He is such a cutey, though I still love my horse for having minimal white to keep clean.

    I just started my guy on Adequan in the fall and he's doing soo much better, I feel slightly guilty I didn't have the $$ before(stupid college...)! So is Pentosan legal in the US now? It's certainly cheaper than Adequan!! And what regimine do you have the Tobe-ster on for maintenance?

      Pentosan is great! Glad you're seeing results! I bet at least half of it is from the lighting bolt though

        Love Pentosan! Switched my guy from Adequan to Pentosan in the fall. And noticed a big difference!


        Cute horse!

            Pentosan!!!!! Have every horse in our barn on it. Just started Thunder the Wonder Pony on it again (my vet recommends taking breaks from time to time) in prep for our spring driving season and had the most fabulous breakthrough dressage lesson yesterday with him. Seems to take mine about 21-23 days into the initial loading dose and then WHAM. New horse.

                This is where I get it from. Those prices are steep even with the discount.

                  Could Cost my arm and leg

                  If I may ask a question, I read through the Pentosan page and looked at dosage. I have a @1200 lb horse (544Kg). According to the dosage

                  3mg/1Kg or .003/1kg = .003*544 = 1.6g of product. Now, is that 1.6g every 5-7 days for 4 injections? If so, a bottle costs $168 for 250mg or .25g. For my horse I need 1.6 grams which equates to 6.4 bottles at $168 - @ $1075 * 4 =

                  Now I'm a programmer, not a scientist so maybe I got something wrong here, but that is a poop load of money. Every 6 months?

                  Currently I have my mare get hock injections (@$400) and I do see benefit, but we repeat every 6 months. I'd love love love to find something that helps her 22yo joints and given the praise y'all have this seemed the ticket, but show me where my math is wrong.

                  If this was a one and done thing I could gulp through my budget. I try to do everything I can to keep my girl feeling comfortable (joint supps, long warmups, hock injections, etc) so I am open to perhaps other (re lower cost) options.

                    It's $168 for 50 ml of 250mg/ml = 12500 mg of product.

                    ETA: JP60--I used to live in Clemson, and I knew Mercedes--do you use Poagie or Stafford? I'd LOVE to hear Stafford's opinion on this stuff.

                      So you are still going to make me do the math Your as bad as my old math teacher:

                      12500mg = 12.5g
                      Horse needs 1.6g product per shot.
                      1.6g*4 shots = 6.4g

                      This means I get two rounds (12.5/6.4) of total (4 shots) injections from one bottle at $168? Now THAT I can handle.

                      I work with Keith for he's taken care of Mercedes since the beginning. I will ask him for if my new math is right, and this is good stuff, I will try this approach. Remind me how you knew my girl (or PM) Were you at SHF. I am curious. She is due for her injections so this thread is timely.

                        ehhh, I don't know what the deal is with Pentosan. Those theads are a train wreck of arguments over the issue and I never come out of them feeling like I have a handle on what's really going on.

                        All I know is that my vet will supply PentAussie (Pentosan with Glucosamine) so that is what I use.
                        I do get a nice discount on it though and pay between $55 and $65 dollars per dose.
                        Not as cheap as regular Pentosan but it is what it is. And the results are GREAT!

                        I did do a 4 dose loader for a month and then instead of going straight to once a month dosage I dished out 2 doses every 14 days.
                        Now I'll go to once a month.
