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.

  • HU 105 Green Status Reinstatement? Zone 10

    I am wondering about how this particular rule might be used. Could this rule be applicable say for a horse that did one year of the Pre-Green hunter division (3') and then showed early the following year in two or three First Year Green division (3'6")? Assuming the FYG division shows were all prior to the May 15th rule deadline, what hunter divisions would this horse be eligible for in the third show year? Could it be eligible for doing a second year of the 3' Pre-Greens using rule #105 or is this ONLY applicable for the First and Second Years divisions?

    Is Pre-green a recognized division or is it something some shows just add? I was under the impression it just applied to 1st and 2nd yrs. I guess I'll have to go look.

    From what I understand of the rule (and I could have read wrong) you would be eligible 1 st year still (and I thought it was a one show type thing not three, again could be wrong) but you have to file with USEF to have your green status reinstated. I'm going to find and copy the rule....

      ok it says that you are eligible for reinstatement if you did not show in more then 3 shows of regulation height (3'6" or higher) and you must submit a letter requesting to have your horses green status reinstated (with a fee).

      It says nothing about pre-green so I don't think it's a recognized divisions so that would have to be directed to the show steward.

      Good luck

        I suspect the reinstatement only applies to the green divisions which are recognized by USEF. Nothing about pre-greens in my version of the USEF rulebook, nor in the PCHA one (2007 version) that's online. Moving down to the county level the LA county rule book says "PRE-GREEN - A horse that, at the closing date of entries, was not a 1st Year Green, 2nd Year Green, or Regular Hunter under USEF Rules." So, under that, you could be pre-green forever until you showed 3'6" or higher. However, I've seen some associations that have a time limit on pre-greenness, generally two years.

        But this made me think of something else. What about a horse that gets reinstated as first-year green. Does it wipe out their first-year green year completely, making them eligible to do pre-green if otherwise eligible? Or can they only go back as far as first-year green?

          I think they can only go back as far as a first year green Peggy, I dont think that they become eligible to do a pre-green.

            I do not know about zone 10, however, most zones I am familiar with determine pre-green status by the number years jumping 3' and/or 3'3". They are not at all dependant on green status. A horse can be ineligible for pre-green and if it does not jump 3'6" it will continue to be first year eligible. I have never heard of a do-over for the pre-greens.

              No, cannot go back and do Pre Green if it did show at 3'6" in the First Years. Least most places. Because that is for horses in their first year of showing fences 3'.

              It just helps those that started the show year in the First or Second Years and suffered illness, injury, divorce, death of owner or some other catastrophy and had to step out very early in the year after only 3 shows max.

              Horse has still shown over 3' and still not in it's first year of showing.

                Horsezee - Based on the replies that I got to my question, it would seem as if a horse that did an "aborted" first-year green could only go back as far as first-year green, not all the way to pre-green. But I can see a place for interpretation as the zone 10 rule says that they are not a first- or second-year or regular hunter. I'd call USEF and ask. And let me know--now I'm curious too.

                Text of zone 10 rule: A Pre-Green Hunter is a horse that is not a First Year, Second Year or Regular Hunter under USEF rules. A horse may show as a pre-Green Hunter for no more than two years once it has reached five years of age.

                  Pre-green eligibility is determined by Zone rules. (All of the Zone specifications are available on the USHJA site.)

                  For Zone 10, the pre-green specification is:

                  "Pre-Green Hunter:
                  A Pre-Green Hunter is a horse that is not a First Year, Second Year or Regular Hunter under USEF rules. A horse may show as a pre-Green Hunter for no more than two years once it has reached five years of age. The Pre-Green section will receive C-rated points. Pre-Green Classics will be awarded points equal to those given in USEF “B” Hunter Classics. Fence Heights 3’. Horses may not cross-enter into 3'6" divisions. Horses not to jog."

                  So the horse would have to meet all these requirements regardless of being reinstated under HU105. Since a first year green horse is not eligible for pre-green in Zone 10, the question is whether the HU105 reinstatement puts the horse back at 1st year or erases the 1st year status entirely.

                  Here are the Zone 10 specifications for 2009:
                  http://www.ushja.org/committees/zone...ifications.pdf

                  (oops, I see that while I had my response half done and then got interrupted, and then posted, Peggy already gave the specifications and answer.)

                    Well, yeah it's fair. If you reinstate First Year it's only giving back that year's eligibility after an aborted start and very few shows. Pre Green would be going back 2 steps in the horse's development when it already completed the Pre Green step getting to the First Years. Actually 3 steps if you take the "second year" Pre Greeens at 3'3" into consideration.

                          The Zone 10 specification is interesting because, unlike many of the others, it does not limit the pre-greens to horses that have never shown at 3'6" or above in a rated show. The Zone 7 specs, for example, say: "A Pre-Green horse is a horse of any age that has never shown in a recognized USEF Regular Member or Local Member show over fences 3'6" or higher. A horse may show in the Pre-Green Hunter Section of a USEF Zone VII Recognized Competition for no more than two years." Under the Zone 7 specs, if a horse had done three shows at 1st YG and then had its green status reinstated -- or if the horse had done even one jumper class at 3'6" -- you could still see pretty clearly that the horse had jumped 3'6" in a rated show, and so it is no longer eligible for pre-green status.

                          Instead, the Zone 10 specifications say: A Pre-Green Hunter is a horse that is not a First Year, Second Year, or Regular Hunter under USEF Rules." Under that formulation, you could take an ex-GP jumper and make it a pre-green hunter. After all, if the horse never showed in the 1st YG, 2nd YG, or Regulars, it's not one of those, is it?

                          HU105 says: "A horse's or pony's green status may be reinstated for a future competition year if it was not shown at the regulation height at more than three (3) competitions prior to May 15th and if it was not shown at that height after May 15th in the same year. ..." I would argue that by reinstatement, the USEF has essentially erased those competitions from the horse's history, so the horse would not be a 1st YG horse and could go back to the pre-greens for the rest of the year.

                          But to be safe the best thing to do would be to contact the USHJA Zone 10 Committee and see how they interpret their specs.

                            Here's my real life experience with this: I am in Zone 1 which has the same pre-green specs as Zone 10. If you apply and have your First year status rescinded by the USEF, yes you may go back and be a pre-green horse, but only if it will not be your third pre-green year.

                            I have had a horse do this because of injury, and a friend's horse had this happen because the professional determined after two shows the horse was not mentally ready for 3'6". In both cases, neither horse had done more than three shows at 3'6" and none of these shows was after May 15th. Both horses continued to show as pre-greens the rest of the year, and both were in their second pre-green year. At that time, the 3'3" pre-greens didn't exist, but if they had, I imagine we would have shown at 3'3" to give the horse more mileage.

                            If we had done two pre-green years, then tried the first years and bombed, we would have had to finish as a low hunter (or something else in the 3') and then (if we were still crazy enough to think this was a good idea) come back the following year as a second year.

                              Portia - I think the GP jumper as pre-green hunter would have limited applicability. IIRC, once a horse jumps 3'6", no matter the division, they are then in their first green year and thus no longer eligible pre-green. So yes, those 1.3-m jumpers imported from Europe mostly are not eligible first-year, let alone pre-green.

                                I my experience, if you apply to have a horse's 1st status reinstated and it is granted, you basically lose all the 3'6" issues of the pre-green's. USEF treats it like you never did those classes. Zone 3 specifically states that HU 105 will be used if applying for reinstatement of pre-green status.

                                And it sounds like Keeper has already been through this in regards to real life practice and not just how the rules read.

                                  I understand that's what they mean, but that's not what it says.

                                  You're right that HU103 says a "Green Hunter is a horse of any age in its first or second year of showing in any classes in which the national specifications require horses to jump 3'6" or higher" etc., but that only applies to a horse's eligibility to show in 1st or 2nd YG classes. Rule HU106.4 defines the qualifications for a pre-green hunter as being "a horse of any age in his first year of showing over 3' fences ...," but that only applies if the Zone Committee has not submitted its own specifications. So under the Zone 10 specification, so long as a horse does not qualify as a 1st YG, 2d YG, or Regular, it can be a pre-green.

                                  It's just sloppy drafting.

                                    Well since the Regular's are not a restricted division all horses technically would qualify. So there must not be any pre-greens in zone 10

In both cases, neither horse had done more than three shows at 3'6" and none of these shows was after May 15th. Both horses continued to show as pre-greens the rest of the year, and both were in their second pre-green year. At that time, the 3'3" pre-greens didn't exist, but if they had, I imagine we would have shown at 3'3" to give the horse more mileage.
                                      If we had done two pre-green years, then tried the first years and bombed, we would have had to finish as a low hunter (or something else in the 3') and then (if we were still crazy enough to think this was a good idea) come back the following year as a second year.
                                      THANK YOU, Keeper! This answers my question!
