The NFED is intended to cover all aspects of equestrianism and to act as a unique independent central resource or noticeboard for equestrian enthusiasts from all disciplines in the New Forest, Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, Isle of Wight and surrounding areas and in such will remain unbiased on all issues. Articles published are not necessarily the views or opinions of the editor or assistants.
NFED - CK Art can accept no responsibility for mistakes or omissions on these pages. All submissions are published in good faith as received. NFED - CK Art cannot vouch for the quality, authenticity or accuracy of any articles, images, information, claims or services advertised or displayed on these pages.
Any opinions, advertisements, advice, statements or other information expressed or made available by users of the NFED message boards, notice boards, classifieds, services directory, event diary or other interactive sections are those and therefore the sole responsibility of the respective author(s), advertiser(s) or distributor(s) and not of NFED - CK Art. NFED - CK Art can accept no responsibility and neither endorses nor guarantees the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of any such information, advertisements, claims or descriptions. Approval of an advert only confirms that the rules and guideline requirements have been met; it is not endorsing the advert any way whatsoever.
The NFED acts as a point of contact only, any contact, arrangements or contracts between buyer and vendor/advertiser are the sole responsibility of the parties concerned. We do not receive copies of enquiries and cannot provide personal information due to the data protection act, so please ensure that any important information or records are kept securely.
In the event of a dispute between users, the editor will not act as referee. We are not in a position to judge or take sides. Our main concern is to provide a comprehensive and safe service to our users whilst protecting the interests of our sponsors and the good name of the NFED. We reserve the right to reject or remove any post or advert that causes problems or threatens the good reputation of the NFED. The editors decision is final, no explanations or reasons have to be given.
Sharing is now common on the internet. It is impossible to block a web page or advert from being copied and shared on various forums or groups. Although great for advertising, it can cause problems if the page, post or photo is or can be considered controversial. Please bare this in mind when posting information or photos, not everyone may be of the same mind set and some are quite happy to let you know. Enquiries are sent directly to advertisers, we do not receive copies so it is up to the advertiser to deal with or ignore any abusive replies accordingly.
For your own protection we strongly advise you to make copies of any adverts and to get any arrangements, further information or answers to your questions in writing before preceding. If leaving a deposit, ensure that you have in writing the full terms of the agreement, whether subject to vetting, etc.
Buyer Beware: Under the principle of caveat emptor, the buyer could not recover from the seller for defects on the property that rendered the property unfit for ordinary purposes. The only exception was if the seller actively concealed latent defects or otherwise made material misrepresentations amounting to fraud.
It is an offence to own or keep a horse without a passport, therefore it is an offence to sell or purchase a horse without a passport. For further details see Horse Owners – Do you know the Law? If you are loaning or taking a horse on loan, for the protection of both parties, please make sure that you have legally binding loan agreement. Sample BHS agreements can be see here
We would advise anyone buying tack or goods that cannot be collect in person from an unknown seller, to consider using Paypal as a method of payment. If the goods do not arrive, you can then raise a dispute through Paypal, it is then the sellers responsibility to provide Paypal with proof of postage. Although bank transfer is an easy payment method, unlike Paypal, payments cannot be reversed. If goods are lost in the post or do not arrive for any reason, it is the sellers responsibility unless alternative arrangements have been previously agreed upon between the two parties. Anyone found or suspected of acting dishonestly may be blocked from posting further free ads.
To help provide visitors with the most comprehensive information service possible, the NFED provides contact details and or descriptions of services or links to various individuals or companies offering their services. By providing contact details and or descriptions of services offered, the NFED/CK Art are not endorsing any individual, companies or the services offered. It is the responsibility of all advertisers to ensure that their services are accurately and honestly described and comply with all current legislation or legal requirements. Before using any services, it is your responsibility to check claims, statements or qualifications with the relevant authorities or governing bodies.
Several interactive sections allow the user to upload or show photographs or images. In all cases it is the posters responsibility to ensure that they hold copyright or have permission to use the photo. In most cases the photographer owns the copyright under UK copyright laws. Using any photograph without permission or the photographers consent is breaking the law. In the event of a dispute, the image will be removed until proof can be provided, any copyright disputes are between the copyright owner and the poster. NFED/CK Art is not responsible for the actions of its users.
The NFED works in conjunction with and hosts sections for many outside organisations. Although each of these individual sections will be managed in full agreement with the respective organisations, the NFED will remain independent.
We WILL NOT allow links or promotion of any companies or websites including Facebook or other social media pages or groups that:
To promote your company or website, you must have a current listing in the Services Directory, this will class you as an NFED sponsor. Please Click Here for further details on how to use the NFED to promote your company or business.

To help fight fraud/crime and to provide a safer environment for both buyers and sellers, we DO NOT permit anonymous advertising on the NFED and require the full name and postal address of the person responsible for the advert. Only the town and county are shown in all classified adverts. Street address (house name/number and road) and post code are hidden from the public in all adverts, your name and phone number will be hidden from the public by default, but you can choose to show these details if you wish.
Your details will be kept in strictest confidence in line with the Data Protection Act. They will not used for advertising purposes or divulged unless requested by a legitimate investigating authority such as the Police or Trading Standards.
NEVER give your payment details to anyone calling to say there has been a problem with your payment or requesting payment for a free advert, this is a common Internet scam.
For safety reasons, anyone under the age of 16 must have their parent or guardians permission to post an advert and we ask you not to show your age, phone number, street address or personal details in the advert. Your Email address will be hidden unless you add it to the main text of your advert or reply to an enquiry. We fully endorse and support the work of the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre www.ceop.gov.uk. We abide to the Good Practice Guidance for the Moderation of Interactive Services for Children. Any advert or post that the administrator considers may put the advertiser at risk, will be rejected.
