About Us

Andy Ide - Owner
Andy Ide is the Owner and Lead Developer of HorseRecords.

Andy has been developing websites since 1999. Over those years he has run his own website business as well as working as a Senior Software Engineer for State and National companies within Australia.

Some years ago his wife Kim asked for an online system to record events for her horse stud, Chalani Australian Stock Horses.

Andy wrote a system for Chalani which was used for some years. He was encouraged to rewrite the system and provide it to other horse lovers.

And thus HorseRecords was born!
