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!

    I thought were were supposed to be trying to bring people into the industry. If this gets some new people interested, what's the harm?

    I'm jealous I can't spend that on a pony to love on.
    Only two emotions belong in the saddle: One is a sense of humor. The other is patience.

      The kid looks completely delighted in the photo. I can only imagine how fun it would be to buy your child a pony. Awfully cute, it doesn't matter who it is, let's hope she can be horse crazy like the rest of us.

          When it comes to horses I have a flashing neon sign saying FOOL, a lot of us do, the only thing that is different is the amount of money we are being parted from.

          I don’t know, nor do I care how much money they have, but I’m betting that my latest purchase at $2200 is a far bigger percentage of my available funds, than their purchase was.

            Pass the "FOOL" sign, I'm sure I deserve to wear it on rotation. Same with KBC, I'm saying compared to available funds.

              Best laugh I've had all week. Entry forms, halter plates, stall cards, etc., should specify "Fool" instead of "Owner."

                I'm next in line. Spent good money to buy back one of our old retired racehorses. He was in PA, we are in Ontario. Have him shipped to NY. Of course he developes strangles about a week later...keep him in quarantine until he and his travelling companions all test clear. I always wanted this horse to ride, and now the horse that wouldn't place a lick without hopples will under saddle, and no it's not comfortable. Oh well, we'll work on it.

                Total costs a heck of a lot more to me than $200k is to KJ. I hope her little girl totally falls in love with the pony and riding and has a blast!

                    True that! My daughter says it's smooth, I think she's full of it. Supposedly you can push him forward and he'll go into a trot for her. I need to work on my balance a bit more after a couple years of no riding before I feel comfortable doing that! 🙃

                      Ugh. Yes. So true. I just did some mental math. My very modest pony purchase was wildly more fiscally irresponsible than this adorable six figure pony.

                        No, no, no! Doing the mental math is a terrible idea for horse people. Especially when you have already made the purchase.

                          I'm sure the amount of money I spend on my (leased so not even MY) pony is a significantly higher proportion of our household income than the Jenners. My eyes might pop out at the price tag, but let's face it: if I could, I would, too.

                            We can get a provincial grant if we show, you submit all your showing costs, training for horse and rider, a whole bunch of stuff, and you get money back..

                            I actually filled it all in one year, but the stress of knowing how much I had spent wasn’t worth the $50 I got back...

                              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.
                              I was under the impression that Frozen was sold way back as well. I follow Mel, one of Stal Wilten's junior riders on Insta and Frozen was one of his ponies. Super, super cute.

                                THIS! I spend more monthly on my horses's "rent" than my own living expenses. I think some might consider horse people even more insane than the Kardashian/Jenner crew lol

                                  I would be horrified to sit down and truly figure out what percentage of my household income we spend on our two horses, I'm sure it would be much higher than the purchase of this pony for Kylie in the grand scheme of things. And I don't show, and do my best to keep my horses affordable. Well cared for, but probably not the same kind of care this very lucky pony is going to get!

                                          No one questions a pony that sells for that (or more!) and goes on to show career.

                                          This pony will likely just be a pampered pet. I am sure all the parties involved are happy so what is the big deal?

                                          And as seen in some other comments, some of us, me included spend a huge amount of what we earn on our horses and ponies. The math can be very scary for sure...we have only ourselves to answer for that!
