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 are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

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 have the largest brenderup and I tow with a Ford Expedition. That won't help you, though! I used to live in Europe and folks routinely towed these type trailers with sedans/wagons/small suvs. I believe there was a max speed limit for them, also they didn't usually have to tow far for a show or lessons.

      the speed limit for towing vehicles in Europe is generally around the average speed limit for all traffic in the US, or higher. 80km/h to 100 km/h with the top quality tires in Germany. France has very strict speed limits....so that is not the argument.
      and while people generally do not haul far, traffic is much denser, topography more taxing than some places in the US.

      The trailer is made to be hauled with the smaller vehicle.

        2010 Ford Explorer. Used to use an E150 van (passenger-configured van built on a F-150 chassis.) We have a two-horse ramp B'up that is probably twenty years old now. I am not the driver, my father is, but he's hauled a lot of short-and long-distances, mostly with the van, and says he's never had problems with swaying or wind, even hauling a load of furniture in it over the Blue Ridge and down the east coast to Florida. Did a long haul of a horse and hay here with the Explorer with me riding shotgun, and no problems (it even turns on a dime, relatively speaking, making pulling it up at the barn a snap even with a relatively narrow area to turn around in.)

          I have a Brenderup 2 horse Baron and tow with my Toyota V8 Land Cruiser. The trailer pulls great and you sometimes can forget it is attached.

          Never had any problems yet with trailer, it is a 1996 version and I hope to keep it for several years to come.

I'm planning on purchasing a Brenderup Baron this year and would love to hear how it is working with your Q7 and if you added anything on to it for towing.
              TuxWink, The Q7 has been great with my Baron TC. It came with the tow package and I had to add nothing more than the hitch and a $25 part for the light connector. It rides beautifully up and down the hills of Virginia. I think you will be very happy and safe with the combination of of your Touareg and Brenderup!

                The Toureg should have plenty of capacity. I haul with my Acura MDX and whether I'm on the freeway or going up the Santa Monica or San Gabriel mountains, it always hauls beautifully.

                  I own a 2h Titan, but I've towed my friend's brenderup a good number of times. Like you, I had a 328i and I wasn't a truck girl, so I went on a "nice looking mid-sized SUV that hauls" mission that wasn't too much $$.

                  Happily found my 2007 GMC Envoy Denali- they don't make it anymore, but it's a v8 and tows 6600 I believe. It tows like a dream and I pulled quite a few before buying mine (and still fits in the garage). Love love love it!

                    My neighbor and I were having a towing discussion the other day & it got me thinking...

                    What sorts of elevation changes do Europeans who pull Brenderups (or the like) with sedans have to deal with? (I've been to Europe, but did no car travelling: just trains between countries/cities.)

                    To get from here to Flagstaff, I'd have two significant climbs to get from about 1000' here in the valley to approximately 7000' up north.

                    Would I really fry a V6 SUV's transmission pulling a brenderup with a 1k lb horse once or twice a year?


                    Totally unrelated question, but I can'r remember...was there ever a Solo with the InstaTack?

                      Daydreambeliever saw them in Switzerland. Does that answer your question?

                      The road up to my Uncle's house is STEEP. That means of course you need a car with the giddy-up to make it up that hill. But sedans - at least the European one () certainly have that.

                        The Baron One is a single horse Brenderup with Instatack dressing room.

                        It has the same stall dimensions as the Solo - it is a few hundred pounds heavier than the original Solo trailer.

                          I don't believe it would be a problem, but neighbor does. I would hazard to guess, so do many people who read CotH.

                            I will keep an eye out.

                            I'm trying to not make a hand in the blender decision, as my horse van is supposed to come home this summer and then I won't want/need a trailer.

                            And, I swore I wouldn't buy anything but a GN in the future, should I get another trailer.

                            But...

                                  I tow with a 6 cyl. Chevy Trailblazer. I did upgrade with a HUGE transmission cooler. It tows well and I've hauled through the mountains with it. I LOVE my rig.

                                    Brenderup Baron TC owner. Towed 1st with an Infiniti QX4 (added aux transmission cooler), F250 7.3l diesel, then an 04 Land Rover Disco (my fave combo) & currently a GMC Yukon.

                                    Not a problem with any though the QX4 was under powered in the mts. when the trailer was fully loaded.

                                      I'm looking at a Brenderup trailer right now. I drive a Chevy Suburban 1500 Z71 4X4. This combo would work, right?

                                          janiemerle - I pulled a Featherlite aluminum two horse with a 1500 Suburban, then a Moritz steel 3 horse slant stock combo. Not more than 2 horses with the 1500 Suburban though. Upgraded to a 2500 Suburban with that steel trailer. Now I tow a Rice (similar European trailer to Brenderup) with my 2500 and can't even tell the trailer is back there. You should be fine with a 1500 Suburban. I wouldn't hesitate to tow a regular 2 horse trailer with that vehicle, properly equipped.
