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!

    This is too funny. I just came over to this forum for the first time to see if anyone has ordered from Horseprerace.com. Well, I just did. I ordered Pentosan and it should arrive tomorrow. I did not do my homework enough before I ordered from them. I was so delighted to see that they shipped Fed-x and they were cheaper than Horsemedsonline. Now I am very skeptical of this company, but I have no data to back up my feelings. I have emailed them and asked a lot of questions, and they did not answer any of them. They just said they have been in business for 3 years. I have spent the last few days trying to get info on them, and I am coming up empty. I would just like to know where the product I am getting is made so that I can ensure the safety of it.

    I don't really care if they are doing some illegal. All I care about is the safety of the products they sell.

      I have used them for the omeprazole and so have others on the forum. My order arrived quickly, and the communication was great. I am waiting for them to restock the omeprazole again. I like using them and will continue to do so.

        Thanks 2horseowner, I'm glad you're experience with them was good!

        TF- I came over here (because of one of your posts ) and asked because I too cannot find anything on them and am interested in ordering Pentosan from them. It seems they are a fairly new company but I've searched the forums and cannot find anyone that's posted about them. Please let us know if you get your order and what you think!

          I just received an email from them inquiring they noticed I put the Pentosan in my shopping cart but then didn't order it. I replied with a couple of questions. I will let you know how they respond!

            I ordered omeprazole paste from them, as have a number of others on the Horse Care Forum.

            Stuff seemed to work, delivery was fast. Product was as stated.

            FWIW, there are a bunch of us on the Horse Care Forum planning on putting together a large order of omep. to get the prices even lower. PM that thread for more info or just PM me if you want to be on the list.

              Just because you received the product and your horse didn't get sick from it does not make me feel any better. This company is providing a phone number that doesn't work, and the address they provide in Florida is listed on real estate sites for sale.

              My order will be arriving today according to Fed-x. I have 8 vials of pentosan. I am not going to use it. Anyone that wants it, make me an offer.


              • Original Poster

                I have repeatedly asked them where they get the Pentosan and whoever answers my emails just says that "Our pentosan is compounded exactly the same as everyone else. All pentosan is compounded." another response was "It is 99% usp grade" They won't tell me where they get it from. Ugh...WTF??

                  Hello, i specially subscribed to this forum to warn you about horseprerace.com

                  i ordered from them 1 year ago. it was a relative bigg order of a few hundred dollars. First they answered emails, but only shortly. Then they said the order was sent....but it never was. i contacted the Florida police about it and it turned out the person behind the company doesnt exist, and neither the adress. The other adress i had is a abbandoned building of soms sort and has been for years according to the officer. At the end of the story i lost my money and horseprerace never responded again. People who do "bussiness" in this way should not be trusted. After my long search on the internet i got into contact with some fellow unsatisfied customers. 1 man lost two perfectly healthy dogs from a moderate injected dose of supershot injection manufactered by themselves. He had it analysed by a laberatorium and it turned out the supplement was contaminated with an invasive streptococcus virus. (uncarefull manufacturing) unfortunately he cant prove it was in the unopened vial. let it be a warning to you

                    I thought I would try ordering Omeprazole from this company Horseprerace but every tube I got was almost empty and was completely liquid. What a rip off! When I emailed them for a replacement they claimed that that had never happened before although they did sent the replacement tubes they were exactly like the first batch, completely unusable. Lesson learned!

                      Weird. I have ordered from them several times shipping was always fast and communication okay and I can't remember exactly where but I'm pretty sure it came from NSW Australia. I too w as skeptical so I had a chemist friend test one vial of pentosan and it came up legit.

                        I see this is an old thread, but I have ordered from them numerous times with great success. Their omeprazole has been a gift from the gods for my horse on very long term stall rest.

                        Their omeprazole paste is more liquid in consistency than say, Gastrogard, but it works. And their shipping has been nothing short of phenomenal-- I've received every single order I've ever placed in 2 days.
