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!

  • USEF method for Calculating points for Champion and Reserve at an A show

    Hi, I have looked for info. on USEF for calculating points for champ and reserve at an A show. I found the form for Points for A, B and C shows for national (and perhaps state points) but couldn't find the individual horse show one. I believe it is 10, 6, 4, and 2 but would love to be able to have document on hand at shows.

    Thanks!!

    Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

      Points at horse shows only for champ and reserve calculation

      1st place -10 pts
      2-6
      3-4
      4-2
      5-1
      6- 0.5

      If there is a tie - the horse with higher points over fences wins

          HU147:
          The Champion and Reserve Champion titles are awarded to the top two of the four horses
          that acquired the most points performing over a regulation course with obstacles at the full
          height required in the section in which shown, except under the provisions of HU112. In addition
          to these points, only these four horses, receive half points for ribbons won in Model
          classes and full points for ribbons won in one Under Saddle class. Exception: High Performance
          and Performance Working Hunter sections with three classes receive half points for
          the under saddle class, see HU106.

              So A and AA shows use the C rating to calculate champ and reserve. I am not seeing anything that specifically mentions champ and reserve?


              Thanks for the replies so far!

                copied from USEF site

                Championship and Reserve Championship:
                 Division champions will be awarded 2.0 times the total 1st place point value of the first class in that section. The first place point value is the number of entries added to the base points on the chart. For example, in an “AA” section with nine entries in the first class, the Championship for that section would earn 98 points. This is calculated by adding 9 (#of entries) to 40 (1st place base points for “AA”) and then multiplying the outcome by 2.
                 Division reserve champions will be awarded 1.2 times the total 1st place value of the first class in that section. This is calculated the same way as the Championship except you multiply by 1.2.

                  no - that's for determining how many national or zone points are awarded for a ch/rch.

                  see GR808
                  6. In Hunter sections only the first six ribbons in each class are counted regardless of the number offered. Ribbons have the same value even if less than the specified six places are awarded due to lack of entries. First Place...10 points, Second Place...6 points, Third Place...4 points, Fourth Place...2 points, Fifth Place...1 point, Sixth Place...1/2 point.
                  Your crazy is showing. You might want to tuck that back in.

                      Amazingly enough it was almost exactly where you would expect it (if you expected it to be under general rules, which would be your first hurdle):

                      GR808 - Awarding Championships

                      Even more interestingly (and this is where we get back to the fun that is AHSA/USEF rules, it does not say anything about points o/f breaking the tie, even though (as the long time owner of a good jumping horse that was the hack loser) I know it to be a rule. That little clarification is probably buried in some other section like Paso Fino sounding board measurement requirements.

                        The tie breaking rule comes right after the rule that I had posted.

                            10 6 4 2 1 1/2. Top four over fences only earn points for the hack. If a tie, entry with most points over fences gets the ribbon. If you have somehow managed to get a tie with equivalent points over fences, the poor soul handing out the ribbons buries her face in her hands.

                              Excellent clarification on the top four being "up for" champ or reserve

                                Unless you have TWO hack classes, or a tie IN the hack class, that can't (mathematically) happen.

                                If they are tied in the "over fences" classes, one of them HAS to get more than the other in the hack, so they would NOT be tied overall.

                                  Unless neither one gets a hack ribbon.

                                      As a starter, I've been the poor soul with head in hands with this situation more than once. I also had it happen between my sister and me when we were riding in some schooling division or other. We ended up tied with 20 points each over fences and then the judge took a solid look at how badly both our horses trot and found other horses to use in the flat.

                                        Section B of the Local Hunters at Devon ended in a tie today and they had a hack-off between the top two to determine champion and reserve.
