Why Stable Manage?
We want to make life better for anyone running or working at an equestrian yard and we care about horses.
What does Stable Manage do for my yard?
We describe Stable Manage as “online yard management for equestrian yards of all sizes” but what does that mean and what does it include?
What is Stable Manage?
Stable Manage is an online web application designed to reduce costs for equestrians by enabling them to run their yards more easily and to automatically record reporting data while doing so. Stable Manage can be accessed by smartphone, tablets and computers.
What does Stable Manage include?
Below is an overview of the features currently available in Stable Manage.
Horses are the core of any business or personal equestrian activities. Stable Manage allows you to add and manage your horses. We can bulk import horses. You can track each horse’s work, exercise, feeding and health.
A Schedule Entry can be anything happening at a particular time on a particular day. Your schedule is a calendar presented as a list of what is happening at your yard for a given day. For example; when your horses are going to be fed, when the yard should be swept, exercise regimes, a visit from your accountant, feed being delivered, a riding lesson and so on.
Stable Manage includes a comprehensive booking system, which can be useful for yards of many types, including those that are not public facing. For example riding school and equestrian centre bookings are a common use but the booking system is just as useful for assigning jockeys to string for a recurring scheduled session on the gallops.
For any entry on your schedule you might have – but don’t have to have – horses allocated. The Allocations view of the schedule allows rapid allocation of horse(s) to schedule entries. Allocations can be changed as each day unfolds at your yard.Some examples:
• A ride out or trek might have several people attending needing horses allocated based on physique and/or experience.
• The farrier comes to visit a certain set of horses
• You want to perform a regular health check for a particular horse
• You have daily walker sessions for a set number of horses at a time.
Stable Manage surfaces information about all of the schedule entries, allocations, horse health records and bookings through various reports, giving users the power to see and interpret historical information about the running of their yards.
Your contacts are all the people, who are involved with entries on your schedule. These could be staff, clients, helpers, external service providers like a trainer, farrier or instructor.For example a member of staff mucking out or teaching riding lessons, your accountant visiting to help with your finances, the dentist coming to check some horses or perhaps a contractor coming to do building work – these are all potential contacts who can be saved in the system to be used repeatedly without having to be re-entered.
Your facilities are the infrastructure of your yard and its environs; the places where your schedule plays out each day.For example, the farrier might be shoeing horses in a particular yard. A schedule entry might see a horse at a certain walker for a particular period of time and a trek could be booked for a particular trail, and so on..
Your users are general staff contacts who are given permissions to log in to Stable Manage directly.
General staff users can view the schedule, allocations and facilities at your yard but have limited ability to edit the schedule.
