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!

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.

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

New Feature: Feeds!

23 Apr 2022
It turns out that horses need to be fed - who knew?!

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!

When you login - each horse will now have a "Feeds" tab - click or tap on that and you will be able to record your horses dietary requirements.
