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!

    Kylie Jenner buys $200k pony hunter for toddler

    Maybe I'm out of touch but this story made my eyes pop out of my head. $200k for a 17 year old pony from The Netherlands? Does the pony have a record in pony hunters? What will a 2 year old toddler do with this pony?

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...er-Stormi.html

    Kylie Jenner splashes out $200,000 on a pony from the Netherlands named Frozen for her two-year-old daughter Stormi
    • Kylie Jenner, 22, bought her two-year-old daughter Stormi her dream pony named Frozen
    • The grey pony hunter cost $200,000 plus an extra $7,000 to $10,000 to fly out to Los Angeles from the Netherlands
    • The 17-year-old pony is currently in the middle of a 14-day quarantine after her flight before moving closer to Jenner's home
    • The deal was confirmed on Instagram by breeder Stal Wilten
    • He called Frozen the 'most famous pony of them all'

    That's what I call "stupid rich".
    I don't see the point of wasting money like that, but it's their problem, not mine. 🤷🏽‍♀️

      More money than sense. That pony's sellers are having a real party tonight, I'm sure.

        Why is there a 14-day quarantine on a gelding? The Stal Wilten post refers to the pony as he. Assuming the “he” isn’t a typo of some sort that makes me wonder about the accuracy of some of the other details.

          I thought a 2 week quarantine was the norm for imports? (Longer for mares and stallions?) Either way cute pony, Stal Wilten always has nice horses and marketing to go with.

            Could any pony ask for a softer landing & probable Forever Home?

            & Yes, I started a thread about Kim K's alleged 17 Friesians.
            But 1 pony for 1 toddler seems hella less ostentatious.
            And $200K probably came from KJ's change purse or the coinholder in whatever she drives 😏

                Why do you care, really?

                17year old is not that old for a pony anyway, and sure it’s been well maintained.

                Keep your eyes in their sockets, horses are bought and sold everyday at those prices.

                What will a 2 year old toddler do with this pony?
                Get on, do leadline lessons and have fun?
                What else?

                    Three days for a gelding from Europe. Mares are longer and stallions longer still. And I’m pretty sure mares and stallions that come into LAX have to go to Davis or a facility in Oregon.

                      Nice pony and cute. He's 17-years old and proven so he sounds like pretty much the perfect starter for the tiny tot whenever she's ready to really ride and show. The kid is 2-years old now. She's still too young to ride anything at all herself. Any patient equine could give her leadline pony rides for now. But they will figure it out and the kid will get started on something as her resources are endless. And eventually Frozen will be there to ready to go. He's surely being managed by professionals that will keep him going and ready. He's a small pony and they are usually durable and long-lived. While anything could happen, he should be good for her entire small pony career even as he ages into his early 20's. He might even have a long career after this kid ages out and moves on.

                      Does she need a 200K imported pony? Of course not. No one does. But people spend absurd amounts of money, even more than this,on stupid things all the time. Who cares. I don't find his price tag unreasonable. And the family has so much money it literally doesn't matter. Why not spend it on a nice pony?

                        And a whole bunch of American horse traders are bummed.

                        I can't believe anyone had to go all the way to Holland to find that....and the pony was named for a Disney movie 17 years ago? The movie was made in 2013.

                          I am very confused, and perhaps it's because I'm completely out of touch with the import pony market.

                          But....from what I can tell, this is a 17 year old small pony with no pony hunter show record.

                          I maybe could see paying that price for a 17 year old small pony that had won everything everywhere and had won it with several different kids on board.

                          I maybe could see paying that price for an 8 year old that was pretty clearly going to step out of quarantine and start winning everything.

                          But....for this pony? Even if it has a solid show record in Europe, that would be in the pony jumpers, which wouldn't have much value in the US.

                          And even if it's a saint? I can't believe one couldn't find a saintly aged small pony in California for much less.

                          They got completely ripped off, right?

                            Well, the kid is only two, so it will probably by five years before she really does anything resembling pony hunters (never mind jumpers). Assuming she even wants to ride/ show. So by then the pony will be 22, which is not as old for a pony as a horse. But still, old. So yes, it was a terrible deal all around. But for them it's probably the equivalent of me spending $1 on a horse. And only the best for little Stormi!

                              If their goal was to buy a show pony, yes you would be correct.

                              But they bought this pony only because he is the most instagram famous creature they could find. The money is entirely for likes and clout online.

                                Frozen is adorable, what billionaire wouldn't want him?! I had to laugh at "unusually advanced for a beginner's ride" - said with true British understatement!

                                    I’m 99.9% positive Frozen sold years ago and has been competing in the Smalls here in the US.. Not to mention Wiltens post made it seem like that he horse we purchased from a private buyer not Wilten himself.


                                    Also.. who the hell cares. When you got stupid money, you buy whatever you want for your kid. The horse is in a great home. We don’t know how much she bought it for, and we probably shouldn’t know or care (lets be real, the daily mail isn’t a great source for anything - especially when it comes to Celebs and horse facts). Let her do her thing.

                                      Since her daughter is only 2 yrs old, maybe a better gift pony would have been to rescue one, since her daughter is far to young to appreciate a show horse yet, and donate the $200,000+ to rescuing other horses. I hope it is well loved and cared for; however considering how they travel etc. I wonder how much time the 2 yr old will actually spend with the pony.

                                        Who cares?

                                        She spent a million bucks on the kid's birthday party. $200k is pocket change. What would be the point in someone with zero horse knowledge buying a $500 rescue to not spend time with?

                                        At least this pony likely comes with connections who know how to care for a top caliber pony. She'll probably lease it out for $50k a year while her kid pets it.

                                        And again, who cares?
