CPP site is completely safe, review is incorrect

This is a great horse site, small but growing. Commonsense media got it wrong about language and bad words. Club Pony Pals has a100% zero tolerance policy for profanity, all swear words in usernames are filtered out by a site-wide bad word filter. All content on the site is 100% moderated -- an adult, human moderation team removes any inappropriate text before it is ever visible to other members. If a member enters any profane text, their account and all messages they have ever created are deleted. All messages --100%-- entered on CPP's site are reviewed and approved by moderators before they appear to members. Even if a bad word is entered, it never gets through.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (9 ):

Since launching, the site has added extra directions -- such as a video that illustrates the horse grooming instructions more clearly -- and extra activities and destinations to explore. There's much more to do now on the Club Pony Pals site, and it's easier to navigate your way around; visiting the bus stop will allow you to travel to and from locations like the site's downtown area, where you can shop for food, riding clothes and other items in stores. Users also can take their horse for rides along the site’s trails and can post messages for the book characters on the site’s active message board.

Online interaction: Users can friend other users by sending a request.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
