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!

Hemp Oil or CBD?

  • Hemp Oil or CBD?

    Has anyone tried hemp oil/pellets or CBD for their horses? I am considering trying it on one of my OTTBs for general wellness and anti-inflammatory purposes, along with hopefully alleviating some of his post-track life anxiety. Google provides lots of information for smaller animals, but only a few resources for equines. I realize that hemp oil and CBD are not equivalent but would like to hear from anyone who has tried it. Thanks!

        A lot of horses don't like "eating" meds. If using CBD exact any med that your horse won't eat with its feed, use an oral dosing syringe.

          I tried CBD oil on my horse with arthritis. I found it made him sleepy after breakfast so I stopped. I would like to try the CBD pellets though.

            I use hemp oil and all three of mine will eat it in their food.

            I also feed hemp hulls. https://elitethree.ca/products/e5-evolve-hemp-hulls I think it's helpful.

              I started feeding my anxious chronic colic (perhaps due to unknown pain source) horse the CBD pellets about 3 weeks ago. No episodes since then, but I don't see any change in his overall anxiousness. That's still normal. LOL

                I use and am a distributor for Elite Three. Can't say enough good things about it. All 3 of my horses love it and so does my dog.

                I have struggled with weight and gastric health with one of my geldings for 3 years. This horse has had ulcers, hind gut acidosis and runny poop pretty much the whole time I've owned him. A few months on Elite Three hemp products have been life changing for him. I will probably never to back to traditional commercial horse feed.

                  Waste of money. Training will help with the anxiety.

                    I have to differ from the above opinion. I have a gelding who is very spooky and reactive, and prone to ulcers. I had tried every supplement known to man with him, had an eventer ride him for an hour on trail once a week for a year, had a natural horseman work with him for 5 months on desensitization, and nothing helped. About 2 months ago, I started him on CBD pellets once a day and there has been such a huge change that even my husband noticed. He is now more mellow, seems to focus on his work better, and generally seems happier. He isn't sleepy, nor blunted. He just seems mellower. He's had a few minor spooks while on the CBD, but nothing like the craziness he manifest in earlier years.

                      What product are you using? I think the idea is interesting but have trouble sorting out good brands.

                        I used the Sat-A-Vet CBD on my generally pissy, reluctant to work at home, herdbound mare and saw no change in her attitude. I did 90 days so I feel like it was a good long test.

                          Where do you get your CBD pellets and how much do you feed?

                              Does anyone know how CBD/Hemp is viewed by USEF and/or FEI (in terms of legality in show horses)? Have there been any studies released regarding the effects of CBD/Hemp in horses?

                                  I sell CBD pellets for horses. It has made a huge difference in my horse's rideability while off property.

                                  He's always been a tough horse but after moving him home I started having a really hard time trailering out for lessons. He was so distracted by the other horses coming and especially going. Lots of outburst and tantrums. And he gets worse if he's too tired so lunging him before doesn't work.

                                  CBD made all the difference. He's totally focused in on my and no longer bothered by what the other horses are doing. I thought maybe he was just finally growing up and one day went to a lesson without using CBD and it was back to his old naughty self. It definitely works for us. And he eats the pellets right out of my hand.

                                  Its really important to find the right dose for your horse. Too little and you won't see an effect but too much can also be bad as CBD is actually a stimulant. Each horse is different so you just have to play around with the dose.

                                    I’m interested if anybody is feeding hemp pellets for arthritis in older horse to control pain and inflammation? I’m not sure what the difference is between hemp pellets and CBD oil. If anybody knows please share. Thank you

                                      Can someone actually tell me *what hemp oil does*? Please don't be general. HOW does it "help" or "control" inflammation, and how has that helped your horse? HOW does it "balance" a horse or other pet? I have heard a thousand generalizations but nothing but anecdotal evidence that "it works". I wonder how much owner placebo effect has to do with the popularity.

                                      Please prove me wrong!

                                      Also, those who are giving it to your horses, how much do you pay per horse per month?

                                      Thanks!

                                        Hemp oil is “extra” anti inflammatory because it has gamma linolenic acid, a super anti inflammatory. Better than flax oil but also more expensive.

                                        More information from somone more qualified than I:

                                        The seeds themselves have slightly less than three times more omega-6 than omega-3 fatty acid. While this fatty acid profile of hemp seeds doesn’t match the higher omega-3 content of flaxseeds, the hemp provides an omega-6 fatty acid called gamma linolenic acid (GLA). GLA is somewhat unique among omega-6 fatty acids in that, unlike most omega-6 fats, research shows it supports anti-inflammatory processes in other animals. It’s not found in flaxseed or other oils commonly fed to horses, whereas in hemp oil GLA makes up about 3% of the fat composition. Fat from hemp oil is about 76% polyunsaturated fatty acid (PUFA) as compared to flax oil, which is about 66% PUFA. Reports suggest horses find hemp oil very palatable.
