Horse Weight Record

A point of interest on this screen; if you update the weight of the horse on this screen, the update is saved as a Horse Weight Record entry too, in the same way as if you record the horse’s weight directly using the Record Horse Weight function shown below, as a result it will be available for Horse Weight Record reports:

How do I add a horse to my yard on Stable Manage?

Adding a horse to Stable Manage takes a matter of seconds and it’s up to you how much information you decide to provide.

The 10 second option

First click the action menu button:

00-ActionMenu

Then select “Add Horse” from the “What do you want to do?” list.

Selecting "Add Horse" from the "What do you want to do?" menu

05-a-MinimumFormComplete

The “Save” button is enabled after entering a Stable Name. At this point, you could click “Save” and the horse will be added to the system, however many users will want to record more information.

Optional Information (5 seconds more)

Most often users wish to record a horse’s owner, residential status (i.e. is it livery, on training, a yard horse etc) and/or its gender.

Owner

If the horse is owned by the yard, you can leave this field blank. If the owner is not owned by the yard or perhaps is owned by a member of staff at the yard, ensure you have added a Contact for the owner using the “Add Contact” option on the action menu (the same menu we chose Add Horse from).

Type the name, email address or phone number of the owner and the system will display a pick list of contacts, choose the owner contact.

Residential Status

If the horse is owned by the yard, you don’t have to touch this field. The horse will be recorded as a yard horse by default. There are other options here, such as livery, training or on loan, which can be useful to record here – this information is included on the Horse Schedule History Report.

05-b-ResidentialStatus

Gender

The gender type of a horse can be relevant to record for many different reasons; including turn out timing / paddock allocation.

05-c-GenderType
