Our Terms of Service


Be honest

Welcome to Epona Exchange! Epona Exchange, LLC offers online classified listings for horses for sale, stud, and lease, subject to these Terms of Service. We are not an agent, broker, or dealer in horses and we do not receive any commission.

By using this service, all users, sellers, and buyers agree to the terms below entirely. We retain the right to update our Terms of Service without notifying our users.

Release of Liability

We are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers. Because we are not involved in the actual transaction between buyers and sellers, in the event you have a dispute with one or more users, you release Epona Exchange and its owners, agents, subsidiaries and employees from claims, demands and damages of every kind and nature, known and unknown, suspected or unsuspected, disclosed or undisclosed, arising out of or in any way connected with disputes or transactions.

No Guarantee

Epona Exchange does not guarantee the sale of any horses listed on the site nor any horse's soundness, performance, training, etc. We do not guarantee the owner/seller's services, representations, or any horse's performance or fitness for a particular purpose. We do not guarantee or warrant the performance of any person or entity advertising on its site. Because our content is user generated, we do not control the content posted on the site and, as such, do not guarantee the accuracy, integrity or quality of such content.

Conditions of Service

You are responsible for your own content. This means, you are responsible for proofreading ads and confirming that correct photos are appearing on ads. You are also responsible for marking horses as sold or deleting ads before their expiration date.

You agree to pay for all fees owed to Epona exchange for the placement of your ad. If you choose to pay for an ad with photo and video privileges, you accept full responsibility for uploading your own photos and video at anytime until your ad expires. If you do not do not upload images or video, for any reason whatsoever, your ad's expiration date will not be altered. If you need assistance, you accept responsibility for reaching out to our team for help.

Service interruptions are rare but possible. Epona Exchange cannot guarantee uninterrupted service due to circumstances beyond our control.

We do not offer refunds, unless our team at Epona Exchange deems otherwise in special situations.

No Archives

Listings on Epona Exchange are dynamic and we do not save variations, or changes to listings. We sill save the latest version after the ad is purchased for at least 30 days after your ad expires or is unpublished.

Copyright Policy

Epona Exchange cannot be held responsible for violations created by its users and/or customers. These violations include, but are not limited to: copyright violation, trademark violations, trade names or patents, or other content which is in violation of any local, state or federal laws.

Our customers are solely responsible for obtaining express permission from professional photographers, subjects, etc. to display images on our site. We will not accept any images labelled "PROOF" for use on our web site. If there is a visible photographer's signature or label on the face of a photo, we will not remove this information from the digital image that we display. If we are informed of copyright violations created by our customers, we will remove disputed images from the site without refund or prior notice to the offender. Epona Exchange may, in appropriate circumstances and at its own discretion, disable and/or terminate the accounts of users who have infringed on the copyrights of others. If you are a photographer, please be sure to contact your customer directly about their inappropriate use of your photo.

Recommendations

While Epona Exchange cannot give legal advice, we do have general recommendations for buying and selling horses to reduce your risk. We strongly recommend that you pay for a Vet-Check or Pre-Purchase Exam for any horse being considered for purchase by the buyer's Equine Veterinarian of choice. Also, be sure to specifically ask the seller if the horse has any vices, soundness issues, or other problems. We do not recommend purchasing a horse sight-unseen for any reason.

You should never complete a transaction without an agreement in writing that both the seller and buyer (or lessee and lessor) sign. We recommend that you have an attorney compose this contract. Any buyer or seller that hesitates or resists signing a contract, should be cause for concern. Further protect yourself by keeping a copy of any ad used to buy or sell a horse on our site.
