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!

  • 2007 Exiss Nightmare

    Does anyone out there own an exiss trailer that they are having problems with (structural or otherwise)? This is the second trailer I have owned (they had to replace the first one) and I am having all kinds of problems with the second one as well. Would appreciate any comments. Thanks

  • #2
    Both my trainer and i have Exiss trailers and we both wouldn't trade them for any other brand. I have not had a SINGLE problem with my trailer since buying it almost two years ago. My trailer is used..........built in 2000.

    Sorry to hear that you haven't had the same luck with yours!

      This is part of Jumphigh83's long struggle with Exiss. It would seem you are not the only one to be dissatisfied with this company.

        2007 Exiss Nightmare

        Mine is the sport model. I have talked to a few other people in my area who are also having trouble with them and was wondering if anyone else out there was. My trailer is flexing which is causing all kinds of problems.

          Don from Dixie Horse and Mule Trailer Company ended up helping me with Exiss when my 02 fell apart. Exiss took it back to the factory and rebuilt it after he intervened for me. So far, so good....but it was a nightmare getting them to eventuallt do the right thing.

            Exiss Sport

            This is the second Exiss trailer that I have had; The first one they replaced because I proved to them that the frame was flexing on it and this trailer is now doing the same thing. My 2nd trailer already spent 3 months in Oklahoma and I live in Canada. The walls are warped and it is missing crossmembers underneath. It was missing 2 and they put one back on it and you can see where the other one was cut off. They remove them when they put the living quarters on the Sport trailers. The trailer is flexing so much that evrything else on it is breaking and I am so frusterated with dealing with this company. I am wondering about a class action law suit? There are three other people that live in the same town as me that are having the same problems. Doors and windows won't shut and are falling off ect. I am making payments on a trailer that probably won't make it for another year without falling apart on the road with my horses in it. I need a really good lawyer I think....

              Please feel free to contact me personally. I would be VERY happy to help you. I HATE my Exiss. Piece of junk. The saga continues. One of my clients said I should hire him (he is an attorney) I have a four page (back and front) litany of headaches with mine...and I too have a second trailer to replace the first POS.
              In fact just contacted them today to fix some MORE structural issues. Please just make it (and the 48K price tag) GO AWAY.

                  I find it hard to understand how they could fail a second time. Sorry y'all are having so much trouble with them. I know of another Exiss, a mid 90's model, that leaked and had door problems and was eventually sold by the owner almost new at a loss just to move on.

                    Go to horsetrailerworld.com and post there about your issues. They will call you everything from a troublemaker to a troll BUT it does get their attention. I tried to trade out of my albatross but no one would touch it with a ten foot pole. (all dealers in Ocala except for Nelsons which has the misfortune of being an Exiss dealer!) The dealer that sold it to me DOESN'T EVEN CARRY Exiss anymore! (and coincidentally they wont help me out of the POS either) I wish I COULD get out of it! I actually have Universal trailers (TJ/Rodney) on speed dial that's how much I have to call them! Usually from the side of the road.

                      I believe they keep failing because they aren't built to be used very much. 2 of the people at Exiss actually told me that they are a "Pony Club" trailer and are comparable to a "tent" rather than a Caddilac and that they are not meant to be used every weekend or on a regular basis.

                                  I bought a used 4 horse straight load Exiss a few yrs ago...it came from a dealer up north, and I did not inspect it first, instead I relied on pictures and the description from the "honest" salesperson.

                                  After about a month, we were at the races, and a guy walked up to me and said "Oh, I see you bought ________'s trailer... (he saw the dealers sticker on the back of the trailer)... "He had a lot of trouble with that trailer"!

                                  Well _______ happened to me my ex husbands cousin, so I asked the guy for his number, and promptly gave him a call...(he hauled horses for a living)...he informed me that yes, that had been his trailer, and he had returned it to the dealer (he bought it new) because it had been welded about 5 times. The dealer took the trailer back and gave him a full refund, after he had used if for over a year!

                                  I argued with them a bit... took it to my welder and had him make some repairs, called back the dealer and told them I still didnt feel comfortable hauling my horses in that trailer... then I let them know that I knew the history on the trailer and that they had misrepresented it to me.


                                  Rather then get into a legal mess, they delivered a brand new Hawk, and picked up the hunk of junk Exiss they sold me. Plus I got a check for the difference.

                                    Horse Trailer World is owned by Dave and, probably, Gail Mattern. I think he is the sole owner. UTC has no proprietary interest in HTW to our knowledge. We met Dave years ago when he was just starting the site and have been with him ever since.

                                      I wish they would give me back my money. I have given them til the end of the week and then I am reporting them to the BBB, Consumer Report, Lemon Law and whatever else I can come up with.

                                        I am all for the class action thing! I WISH they would give me my money back on that POS...make it go away!!! I cannot emphasize how much I have lost faith in that trailer. I cringe every time I have to use it. It invariably will cost me time or money or both.
