HorseRecords partners with Northern Territory Off the Track

16 May 2022
HorseRecords is now proudly partnering with TRNT Off The Track to help Northern Territory retired racehorses have a good and productive life outside racing.

It is great to have them aboard!

Training Log

16 May 2022
It is now much easier to record the training, work, education or rehabilitation you provide to your horse.

You can now mark events as "training" type events that appear in their own tab.

This provides you with transparency on the work being done with the horse. Printing out is easy - so you can give to your vet, chiropractor or rehabilitation expert!

Another great feature making it easy to manage your horses records!

Pony and Horse Care Seminar a Success!

15 May 2022
The Pony and Horse Care seminar we held yesterday was a huge success!

We had a full room and everyone enjoyed themselves.

Dr Melissa Newell's and Jeanette Gower's presentations were very, very well received - and there were some really insightful questions on things like colic, worming and breeding.

We even had an artist attend as he wanted to learn more about conformation to help in illustrating horses!

There were many horse owners from a range of disciplines (including Equine Assisted Learning) present and there were plenty of pony club people there too!

The fairy bread was very popular and every one had a good afternoon.

My personal thanks to Strathalbyn Racing Club for hosting us and ensuring everything ran smoothly!

Thank you all for coming! We'll see you next time!

HorseRecords is helping Retired Racehorses

10 May 2022
In this week's edition of The Southern Argus, HorseRecords was featured on the front page of the sporting section discussing our collaboration with Racing SA.

Every retired racehorse that goes through RaceingSA's ThoroughCareSA program is also entered into HorseRecords. This ensures the ongoing care of the animal and helps all concerned.

Here we have River the horse making sure that Melissa's recently won prize is up to snuff.

He strongly suspects there is food in there somewhere and if there isn't, well there should be!

Congratulations to Melissa once again for winning our 1st birthday competition!

Ballarat Export Ready Incubator Grant day 2

07 May 2022
Another awesome day at the Ballarat Export Ready Incubator grant.

Today we covered giving your customer what they want as well as a comprehensive overview of world economics and market growth patterns.

Here I am with Tina, my business and marketing coach for the program.

HorseRecords is One year old!

01 May 2022
One year ago I hit 'Launch' on HorseRecords!

Then a phone call with my very first customer, Dion, where I walked him through joining.

That weekend I spent the two days working out the launch kinks and obvious bugs and after that we've been running pretty smoothly!

In the last few months HorseRecords has really hit its straps. It is starting to get known in the horse world and I am making some excellent connections with people who see the value and potential of HorseRecords.

I have been really excited to hear customers asking for features and being able to implement them (the most recent ones being the Gear and the Feed pages and being able to customise the events on the home page).

Also retired racehorses from RacingSA all get entered into HorseRecords so that they can ensure the retired racehorses are being cared for and they can offer help to any retired racehorse owner.

In short it's been a ripper of a year and we are just getting started!

Of course I haven't done it alone, I have had help and support from so many people and I thank them all. From people who have suggested features, to folks who have found bugs, to people who have given me mentoring and support - I thank you all.

So pat your horse tonight for me - and give them a bit of extra lucerne or the like to help them celebrate HorseRecords turning one year old!

Happy Birthday!

Andy Ide
Owner and Programmer of HorseRecords

Gear and Tack Management now available!

30 Apr 2022
You can now manage the gear and tack for each horse in HorseRecords.

You can break it down per discipline, print it out and put it on your stable wall! Use it to get your show gear ready for the next day.

No more whiteboards or memory lapses!

Give the list to your strapper/groom or partner so they put the right tack on!

Racing stables can use this list to hand to the Steward on racing day!

HorseRecords now gives you the ability to record the feed each horse is getting.

You can also print out all the feeds for each horse in your stable - perfect for when you are going away for a bit and someone else needs to feed out!

Customise HorseRecords how you want!

15 Apr 2022
Did you know you can customise HorseRecords to what you want?

Everyone manages their horses slightly differently. A breeder will be focussed on slightly different things to a show rider who will be looking at different things than a trainer for example.

HorseRecords respects this by allowing you to hide the events you won't need and allowing you to add custom events of your own design.

You can get right down to the nitty gritty and have HorseRecords manage your horse how YOU want.

Saving you time!

So check it out! Custom Events Types for the win!

Mobile Phones get some Love!

12 Apr 2022
I've added a quality of life fix for folks using HorseRecords on their mobile phones.

I noticed the other day that if you have a lot of event types you need to scroll too much to select events THEN select horses. So I've tightened the screen up a little by putting the event list into two columns.

Desktop / Laptop / Tablet still look the same but using HorseRecords on mobile is a little easier to use now.

Hope that is a nice way to start your day!

I just spent day 1 of 6 at the Ballarat Export-ready Incubator Program.

This program aims to teach how to export HorseRecords (and other companies) to countries outside Australia.

Today we covered Business Plans, Export Plans and general overviews of cultural differences.

I'm exhausted but I'm so full of new ideas and how to help more horse people!
