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!

Sore No More ingredients?

  • Sore No More ingredients?

    I was wondering if anyone knows what's in the Sore no More liniment. I read on their website that it has some arnica, witch hazel and comfrey.
    Not that I want to duplicate it but, since I live in Argentina, I can't find anyone who imports it here. I wanted to see if I can find an equivalent match (similar at least) of the ingredients in some product here. I bought two full sets of Back on Track wraps last year and I've read that they work even better if combined with Sore No More.
    I could try to ship some for myself but I can't bring in 20 gallons on a plane (well, I can, but I think it is a major hassle and not very cost effective) since I would like to use it at least three times a week on two horses. I wish they had a super duper concentrated formula so I could bring enough of their magic in a small bottle to make loads of it here...
    TIA.
    Over what hill? Where? When? I don\'t remember any hill....

    I know you can buy arnica gel at some pharmacies (in the homeopathic section), as well as witch hazel!
    Maybe see if your local pharmacy can get it in for you.

      If I remember correctly it is lobelia, lavender, rosemary, arnica, and witch hazel.

        Just use rubbing alcohol or witch hazel. It's the same thing and cheaper

          You might try contacting the company & explaining your dilemma - though they will not share their propriety blend, they may be able to direct you to an alternate blend

          Publically listed ingredients:
          proprietary blend of Witch Hazel, Arnica, Rosemary, Lobelia, and Lavender
          (there may be others that are not listed )

          The particular ingredients are chosen for specific medicinal properties (some claimed, some scientifically proven) & are likely combined in specific proportions to contribute synergy of action.

          Rubbing alcohol should be used with caution as it is drying & reactive to sensitive skin & may have neurologic effects (why it's no longer used as a "bath" for fever patients) - it may contain a significant amount of unnamed compounds, is of variable degrees of purity depending on the country of sale/orgin, may be isopropanol or ethanol based, contains "denaturants" which are of variable toxicity etc.
          (if you intend to use it regularly, contact the manufacturer & request a MSDS etc)

            I use rubbing alcohol as a "green spot" remover on a grey horse. Based on what you just wrote I would be happy to switch but do you have any suggestions for a replacement? I mean for something to spray on and wipe off with a towel; not a bath situation.

              Ethanol with a liquor seal? Or high-end vodka? IIRC, people use Witch Hazel, tho that contains some sort of alcohol (ethanol, I think).

              But I really don't think that spraying it on the hair of the horse and wiping it off is going to cause disaster. YMMV.

                I really like the rubbing alcohol method. I've never had a horse have a bad reaction to it. It's not like you're dousing his entire body with it. Another trick I've found is to mix a small amount of bluing shampoo with water in a spray bottle. I think the Golden Nugget stuff works way better than Quick Silver. I've found the key to spot removing is to spray it on, then massage it in with your finger tips. Make sure your hands are clean though! (I know clean hands at the barn?? Whaaaa???) Then scrub it with a towel, making sure your towel is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN and dry! Replace it as often as needed. If you use the shampoo/water mix and you do have one with an extra sensitive coat, you could always take another clean, this time wet, towel to get rid of any soap residue that might remain.

                  SNM to Argentina

                  Hello,
                  Unfortunately, Arenus cannot ship Sore No More products to Argentina at this time. However, Big Dee’s (one of our larger dealers) IS able to ship there for us. If you send your product request to Dagmar at DAGMAR@BIGDWEB.COM or Phone: 330 626.5000 I’m sure they will be able to fulfill your order. Thank you very much for your support of Sore No-More!

                    Listerine!!

                    I figure if they think you should swish it around in your mouth it should be fairly safe!

                    Of course you can clean the floor and the toilet with it.
