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!

  • Back on Track products for the human

    Have you tried the Back on Track products on yourself? I am looking at their knee brace for my bad knee. Does it work better than other knee braces you have tried? I am wanting to get back into running and I'm hoping it would help my knee from breaking down again.

    I haven't tried the knee brace, but I bought a Back on Track t-shirt hoping that it would help my back. I didn't feel any difference when I wore that shirt compared to any other.

      I have used the gloves in my practice for various patients with arthritic issues. Have had great results with those who suffer from Reynaud's syndrome. Sorry but I don't have any experience with the knee wrap. Would love to know

        I sleep in a Back on Track tshirt and I do feel the difference. My back feels less tight in the morning than if I'd slept in a regular tshirt. Kind of like how it feels better after a hot shower.

          I have a bunch of products made for humans and they all work fabulously. I like the knee brace better than most other knee braces. If you have the ones with the metal on the side to keep your knee track in place, it is not as supportive as one of those. BUT if you are dealing with old achy soft tissue injuries then it is perfect. If you want to see if they work, get a set of the polo wraps first (cheaper I believe). I use them as like an ace bandage when I do something stupid. I've slowly acquired much more BOT stuff because it is so fabulous!

            I have one that has the padding to support my knee cap since we believe I dislocated it when the injury happened. unfortunately that one rubs and just hurts after exercising and using it a lot.

              I've used the T shirt and also my horse's pillow wraps on my back with a noticeable difference, haven't tried their other products.

                I have the back brace and I definitely feel a difference when I wear it. Bought the knee brace for my DH with a bad knee. He loves it.

                  When I slept with my horses bot therapy pad under my sheet I felt a HUUUUUUGE difference. So I bought the tshirt. The shirt didn't do a thing.

                    I bought the elbow brace for tendinitis in my elbow, followed the directions and, after 2 weeks, the inflammation and pain was gone for good.

                      I have the back brace. Works great. You do need to wear them for extended periods of time though. And they do take a week or so to start feeling effects. I also have the wrist brace for when I spend long hours working at the computer.


                      • Original Poster

                        Would I be able to feel a difference if I just wear it working out?


                        • #13
                          I have the back brace, wrist brace. and the socks. I believe the back brace worked pretty good. One morning after waking up on a hard as a rock bed, my back hurt so bad I amost could not move. Put the brace on, take a pill, and layed back down for an hour and then wore it to the barn. My back felt fine after a few hours of wearing it.

                          I got the socks for my broken foot and not to sure how well they worked. I bought the wrist brace a few weeks ago for a broken wrist. I wear it while I sleep (I did work up in hours like the instructions say too). Usually my wrist is sore before bed and feels fine in the morning. Could be the brace or the fact that it's not being moved for 8 hours.

                            I bought the socks, multiple pairs actually. I have a long history of foot and joint pain. I wear the socks at night and I can literally jump out of bed and down the stairs in the morning. I wore them for about 2 months straight, and now I don't need to wear them every night.

                            If you're looking just to wear it during a workout, I would make sure to put it on at least a half hour before you start. And wear it long past your cool down. For best results, I would try wearing it over-night for a couple weeks and see how that feels.
