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!

    Huh, who knew! Doesn't look like they're available in North America, however, although their smaller models are: http://boeckmann-northamerica.com/

      One of these days, I'd like to get a tow rig and trailer again. I've been looking around some at prices to get an idea of what I'd need to save for. I have been lusting after the Kingston 2+1.

        Shadow makes a very nice insulated 2+1. My horses love it. My huge Danish WB fits easily. It is quite similar to the Jamco but costs a bit less. It's becoming a popular model so inspect them carefully. Some are not made very well.

          I looked at their website. Do they make GN? or just BP?

                Yes they will custom make it with whatever options you want really. We had ours done that way. We didn't want rear tack so all that went in our front dressing area which btw was large, much larger than our old trailer. 3 saddle racks, blanket racks, hooks and still room to get dressed and move around nicely. we got fans plus the padded dividers with the see through panels. Also did the rumber flooring in it. Custom paint job with the merhow horse down the side also. There was so much more we could have added also. Love the dividers stay open own their own and are spring loaded. That has been great. We also added the ramp with the Dutch doors on ours.

                    I have a Shadow 2+1 with full living quarters with slide out. LOVE IT! Pulls beautifully. I bought it after a friend has pulled her 2+1 with tackroom to at that time 3 HOY awards so she has put tons of miles on hers & hasn't had any problems at all. I bet she's got over 200,000 miles on hers now since buying it new in 2009. Great trailers. Super insulation, even the ceilings, large windows, standard. Also standard are full rear doors with cam locks & ramp over the doors. I thought that the fold away box stall doors were going to be weak but I've had super huge mares & foals on both sides & no problems with the divider. I love that it folds totally away when unloading out the front. My trailer went to the NAJYRC right after I bought it & it rained cats & dogs every afternoon. Absolutely no leaks anywhere. Tight as a drum. They are not as expensive as the 4-stars but the quality is very good.

                            Interesting! I saw them at my local Hawk dealer too and was impressed, came home to research, but have not been able to find much info or reviews on them. It's good to hear yours is working out.

                              I think this is their GN version:

                              ETA: Though I thought I recalled seeing a version with a full divider up front. Maybe I am mixing them up with another brand. Anyway, I don't think I'd really ever use it as a 3H but mostly like the idea of a side ramp for unloading and for transporting extra stuff (hay, shavings, etc., tied down of course) that I wouldn't want to put in the tack room. So, the full box stall divider isn't a necessity for me and creates a lot more length on the trailer when you consider space for escape doors between the 2H part and the box stall.

                                I have seen the Sundownder, Hawk, and 4 Star 2+1 trailers in person. I really like the Hawk's with the 4 Stars as a close second. I really just like Hawk trailers in general, which is part of it. I would love love love to trade in my 2 horse for a 2+1 but it's not in the cards. *sigh*

                                    I'm not seeing a 2+1 on this site. And since the longest trailer is less than 15 feet long in the box, I don't think I'm mistaken. If you have a photo of the inside of one that is not a 3-horse slant load, I'd love to see it.
                                    That's fine, many of us have slid down this slippery slope and became very happy (and broke) doing it. We may not have a retirement, but we have memories ...

                                        Yes, Hawk will fully custom and very easy to work with. Ordered ours from Reesa in SC after COTH referral and it was dropped off at our door in Michigan. Downsized from a Pegasus 6/7 horse air ride and have been very happy with the Hawk.

                                          We have a Kiefer 2+1 extended (2' extra in the box, 60" ramp). I highly recommend it. It hauls great, and the horses love it.
