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!

  • Where to Find PONY Sized Things?

    Where on earth are all of you with adorable bitty ponies finding their teeny tiny accoutrements? This summer we're hoping to take my tiny pony to her first event, and she needs a few things first! I'm talking pony pads, boots for XC, and we might as well get her some new polos for schooling while we're at it- please, feel free to add to the list

    Where does everyone get their ~12hh sized things? We have tack and a couple of pads (though nothing in bright aqua!), but it's time to outfit this pony to the max!

      I second justforponies. Love them. I usually check there first when I'm looking for something.

        They have a good selection of pony items, and it usually seems to be priced less than the horse sized stuff. It's worth an order just for the bell boots, 7$ a pair for double velcro ribbed bell boots...

          I triple-recommend Just for Ponies. Great selection and awesome customer service.


          • #6
            Just for ponies is awesome!


            • #7
              Just For Ponies is excellent.

              I've also had some luck with Bit of Britain for small xc boots.

                If you're looking for something like the Premier boots, if you order directly from the UK distributer you can get the smalls, AND for cheaper (including shipping) than you can in the US

                I have a tiny pony, so we look all OVER. I've started just ordering from the UK honestly, or finding custom stuff on eBay now! Also, size small Nunn Finer boots fit a TINY leg, as well as the Roma molded boots in a small!


                • #9
                  I have a tiny pony too. Actually my tiny pony is much tinier than her tiny pony. Ner ner nah ner ner. I never had much luck with JustForPonies, I just keep a sharp eye on ebay. And a couple of weeks ago Custom Saddlery had a closeout on jumping boots and one of the few pairs they had left were in Tiny Pony size in Lilac. Squeee ! She wears black Woof XC boots XC because she looks hardcore in them.

                    Just For Ponies. Best customer service I have ever received In. My. Life. Not just in the horsey industry, but EVER.

                    I had placed an order for our little 10.2h Shetland - needed to completely outfit him for my then 6 year old daughter. Even though I measured 3 times I still would have gotten it wrong had the owner not CALLED me personally to check sizes. He ended up selling me a bridle that actually cost less than the one I would have purchased, but everything was spot on and fit perfectly. Thus he bought himself a devoted customer for life.
                    where are we going, and why am I in this hand basket?


                    • #11
                      Love Just For Ponies, and Warren provides terrific service! I've been using their website for 10 years for various ponies, and have always been very pleased. I also buy a lot of things in England since they have a much better selection for ponies.

                      An FYI about the Premier boots. Have them and love them, but the smalls would be much too big for a 12hh pony. We use them on a 14.2hh pony.

                        I like the Eskadron brand for pony products, particularly boots. My daughter is out of ponies now, but I ordered quite a few things from Calevo http://www.calevo.com/cgi-bin/calevo..._arg=gamaschen It seems like almost everything comes in pony and horse sizes. You have to calculate the total cost to be sure that it makes sense to buy there. When I bought items the delivery was quick and the cost less than a purchase here at a tack shop. YMMV.

                          I have liked the cruppers I've gotten from Justforponies, but I need something they don't carry: rope halters. Even for a medium, the regulars don't shorten up well without leaving a looonng loop under the fiajador not and it's causing problems for my medium, let alone the three smalls I need to help train. Anyone have a particularly good mail-order source they like for those? I'm googling but references are appreciated.

                            If Jo McCracken is still around with Mobile Horse Supply I think? She can find pony stuff at a good price.

                              Look at the pony or small pony size. My 14hh Arab, with a pretty refined face, takes the pony size.

                                justforponies is awesome! Great customer service and very helpful when I had to swap dressage bridles for my "pony in one place/cob in another" Arab mare. They even sent me a free pink hoof pick with my last order of pink pony gear. It made my day.

                                  I just bought a yearling sized rope halter at the local western tack shop. Fits the small great, easy-peasy.

                                  Just For Ponies was extremely helpful with a blanket purchase for the small. And I love their "everything pink" and "everything purple" catalog pages.

                                  I also got very lucky on eBay and found a 20" custom made dressage girth for my large pony at a great price.

                                    email Sunset Halters (google them). they custom make all of their rope products and I'm sure they can make one to fit! They are a very nice company to deal with!
