Terms of Use




This Terms of Use Agreement (“Agreement”) constitutes a legally binding agreement made between you, whether personally or on behalf of an entity and the American Paint Horse Association (“APHA”) and its affiliated company concerning your access to and use of the HorseIQ (www.horseiq.com) website as well as any other media form, media channel, mobile website or mobile application related or connected thereto.  The HorseIQ website is an online educational judging tool.  Supplemental terms and conditions or documents that may be posted on HorseIQ from time to time, are hereby expressly incorporated into this Agreement by reference.

HorseIQ makes no representation that the website is appropriate or available in other locations other than where it is operated by the APHA.  The information provided on HorseIQ is not intended for distribution to or use by any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation or which would subject HorseIQ to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.  Accordingly, those persons who choose to access HorseIQ from other locations do so on their own initiative and are solely responsible for compliance with local laws, if and to the extent local laws are applicable.

All users who are minors in the jurisdiction in which they reside (generally under the age of 18) must have the permission of, and be directly supervised by, their parent or guardian to use HorseIQ.  If you are a minor, you must have your parent or guardian read and agree to this Agreement prior to using HorseIQ.  



HorseIQ bills you through an online billing account for purchases of its subscription.  You agree to pay HorseIQ all charges at the price then in effect for the subscription or other persons using your billing account may purchase, and you authorize HorseIQ to charge your chosen payment provider for any such purchases.  You agree to make payment using that selected payment method.  You consent to our charging your payment method on a recurring basis, without requiring your prior approval from you for each recurring charge until such time as you cancel the applicable product or service.  HorseIQ reserves the right to correct any errors or mistakes in pricing that it makes even if it has already requested or received payment.  All payments shall be made in U.S. dollars.



All sales are final and no refunds shall be issued. Student seats purchased with the Horse Judging Team Package must be used within one (1) year of the purchase date. Unused student seats are not subject to refund.



By using HorseIQ, you represent and warrant that:

  1. All registration information you submit is truthful and accurate; 
  2. You will maintain the accuracy of such information;
  3. You will keep your password confidential and will be responsible for all use of your password and account; 
  4. You are not a minor in the jurisdiction in which you reside, or if a minor, you have received parental permission to use HorseIQ; and
  5. Your use of HorseIQ does not violate any applicable law or regulation.

We reserve the right to remove or reclaim or change a username you select if we determine appropriate in our discretion, such as when the username is obscene or otherwise objectionable or when a trademark owner complains about a username that does not closely relate to a user’s actual name.
