Horse Show Software ?

Post by Rich Nevi » Sat, 07 May 1994 06:53:08


Can someone recommend a software package (low cost) for managing small horse
shows.  Prefer Windoze 3.1.  Should be able to take input typed from entries
and produce class lists and exhibitor program list.

Thanks to all.

surprised this isn't a FAQ, but I couldn't find anything at the ftp site that
applied.)

I lost the origional post but someone (Johnny King ?) was
saying that there is some type of federal law that says
any public trail can be used by anybody (horribly paraphrased).
Anyway, the upshot was that even if the Army Corp of Engineers
says "No Bikes", that you can ride your bike there anyway and
win in court.  My question is: Do Motorized bikes count?  Are
there 2 kinds of public trails?  One for non-motorized and one
for both motorized and non-motorized??  What is to keep motorized
dirt bike riders from going to court and using the same law to
ride on equestrian trails?  Does anyone know the exact law we
are talking about?  

I don't have a problem with bicycles, usually
the people on bicycles are out on the trail for the same reason
I am - to get away from concrete and buildings and to smell
grass and flowers instead of gas fumes and get some peace and quiet.
If they can ride that bicycle through the deep sand and carry it
across the stream that is body deep on my horse, they really
want and need to be out there.  They are mostly polite and they
respect the wildlife.  They are not the ones out there with unleashed
dogs that chase the resident animals, those are the hikers and
mostly the horse people.  I realize that most of the people on this
group who ride with unleashed dogs have well trained dogs who don't
run amok and bark and chase squirrels under someone else's horse's
legs and generally disrupt the peace, but some horse people do.
I don't have a particular problem with dogs and I don't want to
start a debate about them, I'm just saying that some horse people
can be rude on the trail, too.  I really just want to find out how
to keep the motor-driven vehicles out.

I've received a number of inquiries on this subject.  The answers are not
simple, and require a considerable amount of "background information" to
understand.  Sometime in the near future when I have the time (I'm
swamped right now) I'll post an "essay" in rec.equestrian on what I've
learned about this subject.

I always try to avoid using the word "bikes" in these discussions because
of the confusion it causes, and I use the words "bicycle" and
"motorcycle" instead, and I recommend that others do the same.

No, there are not "2 kinds of public trails", and prohibitions against
the use of motor vehicles on trails are entirely enforceable, in contrast
to many restrictions on the use of horses and bicycles on trails, in my
opinion.

I may be able to help you.  I am currently finishing two programs which I
intend to sell one for stable management and one for show entries, etc.  
very low cost and I could use someone to try it out for free and let me
know on problems they encounter.

My name is Ami and I will be more than happy to have to take my program
for free and test it and of course use forever and spread the word around
to futher prospests.
