Rules of Conduct
 1. Equus Unlimited (Hereafter known as "EU")  is created and maintained for entertainment purposes only. All contents found are completely fictional unless specifically stated otherwise, and any resemblance to actual persons, horses, events, companies, stables, barns, properties, breeding operations, farms or any other type of related business is purely coincidental. 

2. No hotlinking to images that are hosted by someone else or another site. Image will immediately be removed. If you would like to post pictures, its suggested that you upload them to photobucket.com or a similar hosting service. Additionally, any pictures of any real life horses can be used ONLY with the website/horse owner's WRITTEN permission. If you cannot obtain WRITTEN permission to use the picture(s), don't put it on your website or use it for your sim horse. We'll ask  you to remove it or remove it ourselves and not allow the use of it again. The only exclusions to this would be pictures released under common use type licences, copyright free photo sites, pictures YOU take yourself, or in some cases, classified equine ad sites, such as dreamhorse.com.

3. No double playing. One account per person. We check IP's without publically announcing it.

4. The EU Administrative Staff has the right to disallow anyone from joining EU and ban/prevent members who violate the rules from playing for however long duration deemed appropriate. We also reserve the right to impose a permanent ban on any member that repeatedly breaks these rules.

5. All parts of this game are offered to all participants free of charge. Nor does the owner of EU profit in any way shape or form from any of EU's websites, forums, or placed advertising. She does this solely because she wants to.

6. All participants are expected to act in a manner which is acceptable to young children and the general public at all times. This includes, but is not limited to, obeying language restrictions, conducting oneself in a manner that is respectful to the Owner and Staff and other members, and not disturbing the general well being of the "club" atmosphere. As stated above, we expect a "G-Rated" atmosphere at all times.

This means topics of conversation that would generally NOT be allowed in a public school elementary level (K-8) classroom are not allowed here. These topics include but are not limited to: Drugs (street / illegal and prescription both), Sex or Sexual Matters, Violence, Threatening others on the board with  in any manner whatsoever, Threatening others in Real Life in any manner whatsoever, or any other topics that the staff and/or other members find to violate the "G-Rated" atmosphere. Staff members have the final decision on any controversial topics such as religion, politics, and current affairs.

Also, "trolling", "flaming" and any other type of similar behavior is expressly forbidden on the EU game forums.

7.EU operates on a time frame that ages its horses. One sim year is equal to one real life year. EU's horses age one year older on January 1st. For more information, please read the Aging Section of the Rules.

8. EU does allow its members to breed horses. NO FORCE BREEDING, NO GRAPHIC  or  SUGGESTIVE language allowed! Keep it clean for minors. Any questions? Email staff please. 

Force Breeding is when "player A" uses a horse owned by "player B" as a parent to a foal they wish to create without "player B's" permission or knowledge. This is the sim game equivalent to stealing the horse in real life, breeding the stolen horse in secret, and returning the horse without the owners knowledge. This is prosecutable in most states as theft, and the resulting foal often is NOT allowed to be registered with most breed registries. 

9. EU allows kids 14 - 17 to join. We do not allow 13 and younger please. Under and Including 14 - Parental permission is required to play.  15 - 17 - not unless we feel that you are not representing your age truthfully. Over 18? Come on in. Please read the Privacy Policy for further information.
10. All other rules (no matter where they are listed) must be respected and followed.

Privacy Policy

Equus Unlimited (hereafter known as “EU”) is committed to protecting and safeguarding consumer privacy on the Internet, especially for minors. This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes how we handle the personal information provided to us on this website and collected through the in-game play of the EU environment (collectively “Site”), accessible from www.EquusUnlimited.yolasite.com. The EU environment includes, but is not limited to, its websites, community message boards, and chat rooms.

Please be sure to read this Privacy Policy before using this Site or submitting information to us. Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time and your continued use of this Site constitutes acceptance of such changes, so please check this area periodically for updates to this Privacy Policy. 

EU is very sensitive to privacy issues with respect to minors, especially those under the age of 13. Please see below for more information on how EU addresses minor’s privacy issues generally and under the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”). We encourage parents to regularly monitor and supervise their child’s on-line activities. 


EU collects information through your active submission of information only. Please note: see the Section below titled “Special Notes about Information from Minors” for the process we use to limit information collected from minors under the age of the 13. 

Active Information Collection 

Much of the personally identifiable information we collect from our visitors is submitted by visitors in response to our requests, such as during the registration process, or in response to polls, forums, or other interactivity incorporated into the site. From time-to-time, visitors may also submit personally identifiable information directly to us via e-mail. The information we actively collect includes some or all of the following: 

-- Name 
-- Date of Birth 
-- E-Mail Address 
-- Username 
-- Password 
-- Gender 

During the registration process, we will also collect a parent’s or guardian’s e-mail address from potential members if they are 14 years of age or younger, or if their parent(s) elect to set up a parental account. Establishment of a parental account may also require submission of the information described in this Section with respect to the parent(s) or guardian(s). 

We will never ask for the following information: addresses, phone numbers, school information, parent’s personal information (with the exception of the information listed above), social security numbers, or any other personally identifiable info such as race, or background.

We will also never ask for a player's password for the forum. We do not need it as the admin can reset a player's password from the admin controls, or the player can request a password reset to whatever email address they provided upon registration.  If the admin is required to reset the member's password from the control panel, that member will immediately be instructed to log in, and then change the password again so as that the admin will not have members' password. This is in accordance and compliance with federal PCI laws.

Passive Information Collection 

As you navigate through the Site and participate in the EU environment, other information may be collected through use of technologies which are common among websites and online environments. For example, the message board or forum we currently use tracks IP addresses, uses session cookies, and evaluates access time and navigational data in connection with the Site. This is not EU’s choice, but part of the TOS of the forum we choose to use for game purposes. “Cookies” are small pieces of information or files that a website puts on your computer which allow the forum to accumulate data on your navigation of the forum and ease such navigation (e.g., by allowing your computer to save your Username and Password). Within the EU environment, we may also collect information on your in-game activities, such as game development and character interaction. 

In addition, we do not use technology to passively gather operational information about the technology you use, such as your browser, type of computer, operating systems and Internet service providers. EU does not need it, nor do we care.


EU uses your personal information to enable you to register for the Site. We also use this information to manage your use of the Site and support operation of the Site generally. We may also use your personal information to send you general updates and information about the Site and EU’s game updates and services. 

We do not give, provide, or sell your personal information to third parties, for any reason what so ever, and never have.

We reserve the right to disclose information if required to do so by law or by a regulatory authority. We may also disclose your information as part of an investigation or enforcement action relating to improper or illegal conduct in connection with our Site. 

If a third party acquires the assets of EU related to the Site and its products and services (whether by sale, merger, change of control, bankruptcy or otherwise), your information may be transferred to the new owner(s). In such case, your information would remain subject to the provisions of the privacy policy that was applicable to your information immediately prior to the transfer. 

EU may maintain aggregate data or other non-personally identifiable information about our users, such as usage statistics, online traffic patterns and user feedback. In addition to using this information to support operation of the Site, EU may disclose this information to third parties without restriction. 


On our Site, we offer many features, such as the ability to view or download game content or images, news, or participate in forums, which do not require a minor to provide any personal information other than the registration information required by the forum. EU will not condition a minor’s participation in any online activity on the minor’s disclosure of more personal information than is reasonably necessary to participate in that activity. We also may enable users to chat online through our Site, but we take measures to limit users’ ability to communicate personal information through this chat function. 

Minors Under the Age of 13                                             

EU does not allow minors under the age of 13 to join or play. The youngest we allow to join is 14. Any minors 14  years old (or younger)  MUST have parental permission to play EU. 

During the registration process, we collect only limited personal information from minors identified as 14 years of age (such as username and password) as well as an e-mail address or other contact information for a parent or guardian, when required. We obtain this information so that we can notify the parent or guardian and obtain his or her electronic consent prior to completing the registration process. We will not knowingly accept registration from a minor younger than 13. 

Parental Review of Personally Identifiable Information 

If, at their request, the parent(s) will have the ability to set up parental accounts to monitor their minors accounts and review the personally identifiable information maintained by EU from such accounts. If a minor is under the age of 14, the minor will be required to submit an e-mail address for a parent or guardian and such individual will have the opportunity to set up a parental account. Alternatively, parents or guardians may establish a parental account during the initial registration process for the minor’s account or, subsequently, through the account management features applicable to the minor’s account. Although a minor over the age of 15 may register without the electronic consent of a parent or guardian, a parent or guardian of any aged minor may also submit a request to EU at the contact information below to review any personally identifiable information from such minor. However, such requests may be subject to the parent or guardian demonstrating proper identification to EU’s satisfaction after reasonable investigation. 


You have the following choices regarding the personally identifiable information you provide for EU to use: 

You may send us an e-mail message at admin.equus@gmail.com to request access to review, correct or delete any personally identifiable information maintained on our systems that you or your minor has provided to us through the Site registration process or other request. To protect your privacy, we will respond only to e-mail messages sent from the e-mail account that you specified (or was given by your minor) during the account registration process. 

You may also opt out of receiving newsletters and other promotional materials from EU by notifying us at admin.equus@gmail.com. 

If you do not wish us to collect cookies, you may set your browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you do so, please note that some parts of this Site may then be inaccessible or not function properly. 


We work hard to protect your personal information. We use both technical and procedural methods to maintain the integrity and security of our databases, including giving users a unique user name and password for access to the Site, SSL encryption for data transfer, firewalls, and restricted access to data. 

However, the safety and security of your information also depends on you. You should never share your password with anyone else and you should always logoff before leaving your computer. If you believe someone has unauthorized access to your password or account, please contact us promptly. 

This Site may contain links to other websites operated by third parties that may be of interest to you. When you follow a link and leave this Site, you do so at your own risk because we do not control such third party websites. 


If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this Privacy Policy, please contact the owner / head administrator of EU at:

This Privacy Policy is effective as of January 1, 2010, was last updated on 10/02/2012, and applies to all information previously obtained by EU. EU reserves the right to change its privacy policy in its sole discretion. In such case, EU will post the new privacy policy on the Site and the effective date of the new privacy policy will be clearly marked. With respect to minors under the age of 14, EU will not use personally identifiable information from such minors in ways that are materially different from this version of the Privacy Policy unless the parent(s) or guardian(s) are notified of, and consent to, the new changes to the privacy policy. 


Your use of the Site is subject to this Privacy Policy as well as our Terms of Use. (See above). Among other things, the Terms of Use establishes disclaimers of warranties, limitations on EU’s liability, choice of law and venue, and restrictions on your use of the Site. Please review this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use carefully, because if you do not agree with our practices, your ultimate choice is not to use this Site.


You understand and agree Equus Unlimited (EU) is completely and wholly fake, operating under the 

category of simulation gaming. EU, its forums, websites, and any other websites that claim to be a part of 

EU as a whole entity, is based off of the imaginations of its members in that all horses, barns, stables, farms, 

and member websites are totally and completely 100% fake. EU’s Members create, show, buy and sell, 

make believe horses in a gaming scenario. EU nor its owner / staff does not currently, has not in the past,

game, or advertising contained within its collective websites and forums.

Further more, EU is not responsible for and does not condone the use of any unauthorized pictures of real 

life horses used to represent fake/made up horses. EU asks that its members ask for permission to use any 

pictures from the owner of the website or owner of the horse in question BEFORE using said pictures on 

any websites. EU attempts to control the usage of and disallow any pictures used in an unauthorized fashion

 but EU cannot be responsible for the actions of its members and is not responsible for the actions of its 

members. Any  pictures, images, or graphics other than the the ones included with the website html used on
