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!

  • Question about Sore No More Gelatin

    Hi there! So I won a while ago a give away, and I got a B.O.T saddle pad, some horse treats, and the Sore No More Gelatin. I've been scouring the Internet for how to use it exactly, but I can fin much other than the obvious "rub it on legs and use with or without wraps". So basically I'm wondering, do you rinse it off after you put it on? Won't it stain boots and what not if used under them?

    Evy and Me

    I love the gelatin. I use it mostly at/after horse shows under wraps (if my horses aren't being poulticed) or in the rare case that we do more jumping than usual at home. Sometimes, I will use it without wraps, mainly just to satisfy my own neuroses. In neither instance do I wash it off. I haven't known it to stain the pillow wraps.
    Congrats on winning the give a way!! Those are fun gifts!!

      use it just like a liquid linament. It just doesn't run out of your hand as you apply it!


      • #4
        It is 'gel' not 'gelatin'. Gel refers to the form of it as being not as liquid as most liniments, meaning it is easier to get all of it onto the leg, not some dripping off of your hands into the bedding or onto the floor. The reference to using with or without wraps meaning no wraps are needed, but that it will not blister or harm the legs if heat is applied via wraps. IMO, who gives a rat's patoot whether it stains the wraps!?!? If you are more worried about the wraps than your horse's legs, then I recommend a readjustment of priorities.

          I read that the OP is concerned it may stain boots (as in possibly white, expensive boots). And I can totally understand being concerned about keeping nice equipment nice, especially when using a new product that you might not even know if it works.

          No worries OP, it won't stain your horse's boots.

          Use it just like any other liniment. It can be used under any wraps because unlike some brands, it will not irritate or burn the horse's skin.

            It won't stain your boots (it's too watered down)
            Be sure to shake it up though..

                Yikes haha. The reason I was asking was because the horse I ride is on lease with me, and therefore I don't have to provide any tack for her. So therefore if this product would stain boots/wraps/etc, I'd invest in my own instead of ruining he owners niiiice boots/wraps.

                But thanks for your input and answering the question!

                  It's actually called "gelotion." On the container. I'm guessing it got autocorrected.

                    I LOVE the stuff and I find it works even BETTER with BOT items!! I have a horse with SI issues and on really stiff days or hard lessons Ill take a glove and just massage it into my horses topline, lower back and hips. If we are at a show I do this then add his BOT summer sheet for a couple hours to really help the area and it gives amazing results!!

                    But basically I massage it into the area and leave it on and basically brush it off the next day.

                      Thanks for explaining the wraps question. It really helps to know the backgrounder/context. One other suggestion though, is since the horse is leased, it is a good idea to ask the owner what liniment(s) he or she prefers that you use, and to ask that person whether any effect upon the wraps is an issue or not. If I were the owner, I would not give a hoot what the liniment did to the wraps; I would be more interested in making sure it would not be either a substance to which the horse might be allergic, or whether it might be a substance that would 'test' at a competition. IIRC, there is or was an ingredient in Sore No More that was causing drug test related disqualifications, but I cannot remember which ingredient it is.
