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!

  • CL alert: Brenderup trailer in Charleston SC

    Not posting the link to the ad, but I just spotted an older model Brenderup trailer on the Charleston CL for $2k! I know these are hard to come by used, so if anyone's looking, it might be worth checking out.

    Good find! Note that the ad doesn't say it's a Brenderup. You have to search under "horse trailer".


    • Original Poster

      Yeah, I forgot to include that! It may be completely ragged out, or it may be a great find, I'm not really familiar with the brand, other than the basics & the fact that they're pretty sought after. Hopefully it will be a good find for someone!

        I saw one posted yesterday on the Norfolk/Hampton Roads, VA Craigslist. 2005 model; ad states it's only been used 6 times.

          Ugh, you guys are killing me. I've been trying to downsize from my current Brenderup (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE but is really too big for my needs), but these are all too far from me to consider!

            jn4jenny - I have two friends that would love to find a used one and we're just over in MN. I'm not sure if they're saving up for new ones in particular or would be happy with a used. PM me if you have info you want me to pass on.

              I shipped mine 1/2 way across the country through UShip. The winning bidder did a great job, delivered on schedule despite a snowstorm, and regularly communicated his status during the whole trip.

              Jn4Jenny: FYI I've seen a couple of dealer listings where older frames have been re-built with new factory SPC walls and floors. Their construction looks pretty simple. Maybe buying an old one in reasonable condition for a great price would be a good first step to downsize. Then down-the-line have it re-built to like-new condition? Just a thought!

                Thanks, but like most Brenderup owners, I do my homework too. Your advice won't work for my situation. I'm looking for a Brenderup Solo, which AFAIK only started being made within the last decade or so, and they're a very rare bird on the used market. Until then, my current Brenderup is fantastic and is more than getting the job done (and I'd never recover the investment if I put in SPC walls--I already had it priced out). I just covet the Solo and I'm a one-horse woman.

                  That's actually a bad thing rather than a good thing.
                  It means that trailer just sits.
                  It means the tires don't move and therefore could be rotting out on the bottom.
                  Would also be willing to bet that the mats are down, water is getting trapped underneath and the floor may need to be replaced.

                  Ask me how I know.

                    Jn4Jenny - I know you're a smart one. Was thinking that you could make money now on your current trailer (I think I remember you saying once that you bought it for a REALLY good price) and then make money later on a re-built model. It was more of an entrepreneurial suggestion than anything else. Heck, do that enough times and you'll pay for a new tricked-out Baron One!

                    Invested1...I'll take the bait...how do you know?

                    (And BTW I have yet to see a Brenderup trailer that wasn't advertised as "used only a few times". Looked at one of those myself, and after the owner got talking, they raved about how reliable the trailer had been for their daughter's several years of showing, and how much they loved using the trailer to go to WEEKLY lessons and how many looks comments they got on the trailer throughout the summer show circuit, I realized that "a few times" wasn't really accurate! )


                    • Original Poster

                      Just curious, did anyone happen to call about the Brenderup on CL? I'd like to see someone potentially get a good deal (if it's not completely ragged out)

                        haha--oh, that was kind of a tongue-in-cheek statement.

                        I know because I bought one that had only been used (I think he said) 5 times in 7 years.
                        Had to replace the tires and the floor.

                          There was also one on the Dallas CL about a week ago for 4K

                            I think there is still a lightly used 2004 Solo for sale in North Carolina; reported to be in excellent condition. The owner got back to me immediately after I emailed her and seemed very nice and forthcoming about the trailer's use. Didn't take it because the shipping costs to me brought the price too close to just getting a new model, but for someone closer.....

                              Umm...why did this thread get bumped?

                              B'up prices have really come down in the recession. I just picked up a 2000 Solo for a very good price and there's been ample interest in my 2-horse (although nobody has bitten yet). Try searchtempest.com if you're looking to search a multitude of Craigslists at once.
