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!

Quarter horses and "A" shows?

  • Anthem, I remember your story about not being asked for his papers at the show, and I was shocked. Cardinal rule # 1 at a breed show is to see at least a copy of the entry's registration papers. So instead of having your entry politely refused, you became an instant professional--that stinks. BUT---keep trying to track everything down--I was just going through my files and found the papers of a horse I had that died in '98--sometimes stuff just ends up at the back of a file folder! If someone can find them, or will sign an affidavit that they have been lost, you can get duplicate papers--it's worth a try.

      Yeah, was kind of unfortunate. I have no business being a pro! haha!

      And I am definitely moving forward with this process!!! I would REALLY like to be able to show in both worlds...As much as I love the USEF world, the QH folks are AWFULLY nice..and seems like they have A LOT of fun!!!
      That would be nice if I could have an affadavit cover me, in case we are notable totrack down the original...The woman at AQHA basically said I was outta luck if we can't find them...made no mention on duplicate papers.....which doesnt seem like an unreasonable rewuest....

      • I've had duplicates issued for papers that were lost in a fire. It's a bit of an ordeal but definitely do-able. Be persistant! Maybe there's something on the AQHA website or in the rulebook addressing that.

                • Just finished up the first approved Quarter Horse H-J classes at a big open H-J show (more on this later), and the well known show manager at this show, Tommy McIntyre said he intends to incorporate AQHA H-J classes into his numerous A Circuit shows in the near future.

                  Sparky, Big News! - Tommy McIntyre (through a client) has High Prairie all but bought, and will continue to run big shows there, and make many improvements.

                  Anthem35, I would get a DNA test kit from AQHA (involves a wisp of mane hair sent in) and get that going right away, in case you need it to prove your horse is who you say he is - you might ask AQHA if he was DNA typed (on his papers) -he may be old enough to pre-date that. Luckily AQHA was (hopefully still is) running a Big Sale on transfers, whereas you can get all former ownerships transferred for one $15. fee. Remember, I sat down with a biggie from AQHA in January about something else, but ran your case by him as an anonymous 'for instance', and he said there was a good chance you could retain your amateur status, if you can prove you owned the horse on the day you showed him. Show did not advise you as they should have.

                      Wow, that's wonderful--Tommy does a great job. Sounds like your "baby" got off the ground in a big way!

                      • I have my appendix gelding by Coats N Tails up at HITS showing in the baby greens. He tromped around in the mud this past week without batting an eye. No ribbons, but its his first show over fences, and hes up against some tough competition. Aside from some baby mistakes (he eats up the lines and is still learning that there are different speeds of the canter, and just learned about lead changes 3 weeks ago), he would be right up there in the ribbons. His jump is lovely and his attitude is great. I even hacked him around in the GP stadium and he cantered around in there like he had grown up with all of those big jumps and flowers around him. Now that is what I love about a QH!

                        After HITS he will get a couple weeks of chill time, maybe a couple local shows after that, and then I figure I'll give the congress a try. He really seems to love being a hunter.

                        • I have a quarter pony and she is a large pony, but does not look overly "QH."
                          She has placed well at some of the A shows I have taken her to in the pony divisions, and she's brave to boot. She is quiet enough for the hunters, has beautiful form over fences and points those little toes on the flat, but is also a dynamite jumper and can turn on a dime.
                          I really think it just depends on the quarter horse. I have seen quite a few that have been succesful in both the hunter and jumper ring.

                            Thanks for the idea of DNA testing!!! I WILL do that!!! I really cant imagine that its going to be hard to prove I owned him...Lord knows I have the bills to prove it!!

                                  Ya know? I have no idea!!!

                                  He's with one of the trainers from MVHC...As she's a pro, I can only guess at the divisions he'd be in the hunters...I try to not be an over-bearing Mother, more try to keep a loose rein, so to speak..As long as he's in good care, which he is, and they dont show over 3', which they don't, I'm happy.

                                  Any news from your camp this weekend? Did you get the tapes?

                                      • fancy horse?

                                        I finally got around to scanning a couple of pictures from my last show and figuring out where to post them. At least I think this will work; it's my first time trying it. My boy is all QH, not Appendix, and is by a Superior Halter Horse sire no less. The judge had this to say about him: "a beautiful horse, great quality and ideal, clean movement, incredible stride, and a perfect canter." Granted this wasn't a rated show, but really, if I could ride worth a crap, I wouldn't hesitate to take him to the A's. He easily jumps 4'. Getting a piece of the action is always the issue, but I think HE could figure it out. And for what it's worth, we did come out on top in Green Hunters.
