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!

  • Sore No More Linament

    Hi All

    Just looking for opinions of using Sore No More versus all the other linaments. Is it worth the price? thanks

  • #2
    I think so. I have a bottle at the barn for the horse and one at home for me. I use the gel.


    • Original Poster

      hey there ddb

      thanks for the reply! I guess since you use it on yourself you can testify to its working well!


      • #4
        Honestly, haven't tried it myself. But hear it's very good. Plus it has arnica in it, which is very good for stiffness and soreness. I use arnica gel on my own aches and bruises and it's great!


        • #5
          I love it too.... Highly recommend...


          • #6
            I have the gelotion for myself too and it's great. It contains arnica.

              I LOVE the stuff. I use it for post and pre workout massage, I can wrap over it without burning the legs..

                Love it!

                  It's the best I have come across- Their poultice is fantastic too.


                  • #10
                    I love Sore No More products. I use the gel liniment and have also used their poultice. Really great stuff. I really like that you can wrap over their liniments unlike other brands which will burn if you do that.

                    It's worth the price. Well worth the price.


                    • #11
                      Really love the gel and have just started using the linament. Have to say, though, I'm addicted to the smell of Tuttle's and Vetrolin.


                      • #12
                        I love it, it certainly doesn't blister, which Absorbine or Vetroline supposedly can. We use it with the Back on Track products as suggested and have had great results.

                          love it, it goes on mild but it's effective, not burning like Absorbine is.

                          I love Vetrolin and Bigeloil, too. They are all good.

                            I love Sore No More. Only problem is you can't use it at events as your horse can test positive for something (can't remember what it is) and it is on the list of things not to use. Shame. Works great.


                            • #15
                              I love it and use it on myself, so I know it works. Gave a bottle to my mother for her own personal use, and now she is raving about it to all her friends at the Senior Center. Too Funny!

                                ditto this. I use it on me and my horses. I also recommend it to my clients on a regular basis and they seem to love it.
                                Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
                                Sam: A job? Does it pay?
                                Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
                                Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

                                  Well, I got a bottle of the gel and lotion, tried both on me and don't feel anything. Do you feel any heat or tingling or anything when you use it? Maybe I got a bad batch? Please let me know!!


                                  • #18
                                    No, you won't feel anything when you put it on. Understand, traditional liniments are based on various plant oils that never really get deeper than the skin but "burn" and tingle your skin (and the horse's) so you think WOW this is some strong liniment, while it really does nearly nothing.

                                    SNM's arnica will actually penetrate inward and work to reduce edema and bruising. I've used it in a home trial, comparing it to Surpass on a hot and filled leg that had a fresh, green splint. The Surpass did nothing for the heat and filling and the SNM drew the leg down tight and cool. Surpass for one week, no change, SNM for one week, cool and tight. Nothing for one week, filling and heat came back, Surpass for one week, no change, SNM for one week, leg cool and tight and stayed that way after treatment stopped. I just used the SNM poultice on a fresh tendon injury and was amazed at how quickly the heat and filling cleared.

                                    Both good products. I have seen a horse really blistered by Absorbine liniment when an owner rubbed in onto the leg vigorously and wrapped over it. Picture four black legs spotted with white splotches of hair!

                                    I've had no indication that SNM will blister a horse's skin after years of using it but never say never.

                                      I've used SNM on a leg that was blistered before I got the horse - obviously I didn't put it on the raw skin, but used it on and around the irritated skin, and the leg continued to heal.

                                      Arnica is amazing stuff - I use it on myself all the time.

                                        I swear by the Gelotion. There is always a bottle a the barn, a bottle in the trailer and a bottle at the house!
