Overview of Allocations

What is Allocation?

Allocation is simply allocating or assigning a horse to a Schedule Entry.

How is it done?

There are two ways of allocating a horse to a Schedule Entry.

  1. “Unassigned” allocation (also called a “free” allocation) is a horse allocated to an Entry without being assigned to a specific person.
  2. “Attendee” allocation is a horse allocated to an Entry and assigned to a specific person. For example;
    • riding school pupil for a lesson
    • jockey on a gallops entry
    • staff member leading a trek/rideout
    • schooling rider for a schooling session

How do I Allocate Horses to Schedule Entries on Stable Manage?

For yards across the whole equestrian industry; allocation of horses to schedule entries and maintaining the current – correct – list can be the biggest headache of all!

There are many reasons why an allocation might need to change, at any moment during the day and getting that information to others on the yard can be a nightmare. Phone calls, stickies, random pieces of paper and often just yelling across the yard are used as the means of having the “up to date” list known!

Stable Manage makes this process simple; really simple. In fact it was one of my main goals when I came up with the idea of Stable Manage over 10 years ago because it represents a problem I have seen first hand at many yards. For detailed information take a look at the “how-to” guide:
