Why did I create Stable Secretary?

I created Stable Secretary because I wanted the best of all worlds: to work in the most elite parts of the Show Horse industry; to have a little bit more free time; and to have a little bit less frustration and stress… It seems like a lot of trainers and barn managers don’t have efficient systems in place to help them run their horse businesses which means that they lose time and money, and gain stress.  Most other industries have helpful software tools, so I asked myself:  why wasn’t there a GOOD barn management software for the Show horse industry?  I created Stable Secretary, a barn management software application, to make it easier to run an equine business.

At the end of the day, When the horses are fed, the barn is swept, and the work list for the next day is organized, it is a bummer to leave the barn with paperwork, phone calls, or other organizational logistics hanging over your head.  During the day, it can be pretty frustrating to waste time and energy looking for information that should be easy to find:  phone numbers, coggins files, entry due dates;  or working hard to answer questions like:  “When were Banjo’s last vaccines?”, or “Is Barney’s Coggins up to date?”, or “Rosie’s feet look horrible – when did she get shod?”, or “Lulu’s late on her left to right lead change.  I wonder when we last did her hocks?”  As I interviewed more and more barn managers and trainers, I learned that many equine businesses lose $100s – $1,000s per month because they (or their staff) forget to write down services. TIME is valuable, MONEY is hard-earned, and we should be doing our best to safeguard them both.

Since I couldn’t find any software solutions that would really help me in my horse business, I made my own!
