What's new in Horse Show Assistant 5
- Changed Exhibitor Number to Entry Number.
The terms 'Exhibitor' and 'Entry' are more clearly defined. The Entry number follows the horse and this change is intended to disambiguate the difference.
- Added pre-register function.
Riders can be entered into a show without an Entry number or selecting classes. Grounds fees and All Day Fees can also be entered and paid for. Rider receives a pre-registration number which can be used at the show to assign an Entry number and select classes.
- Added class sponsorship to several reports.
A class sponsor area was added to the Classes table. It can be toggled On or Off on several of the reports including Score Sheet. The Class List report serves as a Sponsor list indicating which class they sponsored.
Reports include End of Show, Class List, Horse Entry, Horse Owner, Show Callout, Score Sheet.
- Restore an 'Ended' Class
Option to restore an Ended class for editing.
- Championship Classes
Set up qualifying classes for Championship classes. Winners can be automatically entered.
- Two tier Membership.
Membership can be entered as Family or Single at different rates.

- Changed 'Member Discount' to 'Fee Adjustment'.

- Single Checkout receipt reworked.
Receipt was reconfigured to make it more condensed.
- Added Owner checkout.
An Owner Checkout function was added so an owner can have one checkout and receipt for all horses at the show including all Grounds fees and All Day Fees.
- Added Skip Print Preview to Checkout.
This skips the preview window and sends receipt to the printer.
- Added Multiple checkout.
To checkout a series of riders, right click on the Checkout icon to open a selection dialog window. Drag and drop Entry numbers into a listbox to check them out and jump to the receipt preview. Selecting "skip print preview" will sequentially send selected receipts to the printer.
- Report dialog remains open.
The Report dialog will remain open until Done is selected. This saves from reopening the Print dialog when several reports are needed.

Most textbox entry fields with length limitations will display red text if the limit is exceeded.
