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.

AQHA-USEF program?

  • AQHA-USEF program?

    I just bought a new horse that is an Appendix QH. I have no plans to show under the AQHA, but I was wondering if there are any "cross-over"/incentive programs that reward horses that do well in USEF/USHJA competitions.

    Thank you!

    Nope.

    Even if they did, wouldn't they need permanent papers to be recognized, not Appendix?

    I believe they do have something for Dressage? And they have a very nice recreational Trail Riding recognition program when riders can log and track their miles.

    But both of these are because they are not offered via exsisting AQHA shows as are the routine H/J classes.

      AQHA offers papers to Appendix Quarter Horses. Most horses in the registry have a significant amount of Thoroughbred blood these days. As a side note, AQHA also has a policy that an Appendix can receive "full" papers once they earn x amount of points. So, you can end up with horses that are 7/8 Thoroughbred registered as full Quarter Horse. There percentages vary pretty widely.

      I also don't know of any specific programs to recognize AQHA registered Hunters or Jumpers. But, if you're ever interested, some of the top AQHA competitions have some great horses showing in the open Working Hunter divisions.

        Yeah, I know that they have alot of TB, comes up on here alot and I did show QHs years back.

        Can an Appendix earn regular points for life? They used to have to go ROM in something before a certain age or they stayed Appendix and could not earn points past that age. Has that changed?

          Once an appendix earns 10 points (or their performance ROM) in open competition they can receive regular papers.

          If the horse is incentive fund they will earn money for their points. An appendix can be incentive fund as can a regular registry horse.

          All points a horse accumulates through out its life in AQHA competition will stay with that horse, regardless if it went from appendix papers to regular papers.

          Currently there are no AQHA/USEF programs other than dressage. Which there the horse's score is converted into points. The dressage show must have an AQHA sanction for the horses to be able to receive points.

          You can also do the AQHA horseback riding program where you log hours and it goes on your horse's record and you earn awards.

          Upper level AQHA shows (world, congress, other larger circuits like redbud, gold coast, etc.) have several USEF hunters and trainers showing there. There is pretty deep competition at some of the shows.

            Last I checked, it was OPEN competition only. Unless the rule was changed this year, which I do not believe it was.

              Again, my question was is there any time limit on earning that ROM???

              In other words, can I buy a 9 year old Appendix with no AQHA points from track or show ring and show him AQHA in an Amateur Hunter Under Saddle class?

              Used to be no. That was a good long time ago though.

                  AQHA has "special recognition" events which allow you to earn points at non-AQHA shows in the hunter division. A few of our local schooling shows are "aqha special events" and offer aqha working hunter, eq o/f, hunter hack, and hunter u/s. They have similar opportunities for dressage as well (just started last year I believe).

                      Like Eventer80 said, yes. There is no separation in competition between those with Appendix papers and those with regular papers. The only differences involve breeding (you can't breed a horse with Appendix papers to another Appendix or TB and have the foal registered with AQHA). Of course, once the Appendix "advances" to the regular registry, so do all of their offspring.

                      PS. bugsynskeeter, I believe you are correct. I thought it had to be an Open ROM (or Racing), as well.

                        You can show an appendix in AQHA competition forever and earn points. The only "restriction" is that an appendix can ONLY be bred to a regular numbered QH, not another appendix numbered horse or TB. However, once they earn 10 open points you can upgrade them to regular registry and then they CAN be bred back to appendix or TB's. Other than the breeding restriction an appendix horse is no different for showing purposes than any other REGISTERED QH. Many people errorneously call a TB/QH an "appendix" but that term is ONLY correct if the horse is registered with AQHA as an appendix horse.

                          Thank you all for the replies. FYI: my horse's dam is 100 percent TB, and the sire is 50 percent TB (but has full QH, not appendix, papers).

                            About 10-15 years ago Miller Harness sponsored a very nice year end award for the top placing AQHA horse in USEF classes in the rated divisions. That ended when Miller's ended, and is the only one I know besides the Dressage and Special Event Classes. You can qualify a horse for the AQHA World Shows at those AQHA Special Events at hunter shows, which is a nice thing.

                            " Thank you all for the replies. FYI: my horse's dam is 100 percent TB, and the sire is 50 percent TB (but has full QH, not appendix, papers). " This means his sire earned his ROM and his regular registry papers, and so could be bred to a full TB and the foal could be registered Appx.
