ShowPro is available on an Annual Subscription or By The Show Day
Sport Data, Inc. is a leading software provider to the horse show industry. Our ShowPro
horse show management software product has support for USEF and Western breeds/disciplines
including Hunter Jumper,
National Show Horse,
Tennessee Walking Horse,
and Open Show. There are some disciplines and breeds we are still
working on, we intend to provide genuine support for all USEF and Western breeds and other miscellaneous breeds as well.
ShowPro is designed in a modular manner that allows it to be a pure Hunter/Jumper software, a pure breed
software, or a combination as is needed for many state fairs. At many fairs horse show secretaries were
using several programs, sometimes on several different computers, to handle the many requirements. Now
there is one software that can do it all and do it better than it has ever been done before.
There are two kinds of horse show software. Those that make things as easy as possible for the
user at all times and those that don't. We create horse show software that is easy
to learn, which means you're up and running quickly, and easy to use, which
means the effort you expend from now on is dramatically reduced.
We do the extra work... when you have to perform a
task the effort is reduced to the absolute minimum.
End result... you work half as hard as you would otherwise. Lines at check out are reduced
and the chaos and mayhem are eliminated.
Our products are scaleable, both in terms of price and performance. This means if you're running
the largest horse show in the country the software features you need are there and are affordable. If you're running a
smaller horse show, you don't pay for the software features you don't need.
ShowPro is the most advanced,
most reliable, best supported, and easiest to use horse show management software product available.
OrgPro is our sanctioning organization and points
management software product. It has everything you need to manage your organization's members, horses, points, mailing lists,
horse show results, and even your web site.
ShowPro started out as a pure Hunter Jumper software and handles all aspects of a Hunter Jumper show properly and automatically according to USEF rules. You can combine sections or individual classes with a few mouse clicks and uncombine them if you need to just as easily. ShowPro calculates the championship standings automatically and prints sheets either partially or fully completed. These championship sheets are also available on the free exhibitors terminal.
ShowPro submits results electronically to USEF with the section code set on an individual place basis. This means that when sections or classes are combined the results are reported correctly for each placing and you don't have to use the "Combined" section codes.
ShowPro has all the AHA class templates built-in and pre-configured. Electronic results are available for USEF and AHA in the Standard Edition and above. An AHA Results People/Horses report is included. Membership expiration dates are handled properly.
ShowPro has all the ASHA class templates built-in and pre-configured. Electronic results are available for USEF in the Standard Edition and above.

There is a demo show included with ShowPro that includes the above four breeds/disciplines that demonstrates how multiple breeds and disciplines are handled seamlessly in the same show. ShowPro is the choice of many state fairs, including the NY State Fair because it can handle many breeds and disciplines in a single show. It does this transparently by managing the context, if you're doing a show that is only Hunter Jumper you would never know that ShowPro was anything other than a dedicated Hunter Jumper software.
ShowPro has all the PFHA class templates built-in and pre-configured. Electronic results are available for USEF and PFHA in the Standard Edition and above. There is a PFHA Class Counts by Account report that automates a cumbersome close out requirement. Membership expiration dates are handled properly. The majority of the Paso Fino shows around the country are done with ShowPro.

Welsh Pony/Cob shows are handled using a combination of the Hunter Jumper and Open Show disciplines. Hunter Jumper is used for the performance classes with the USEF organization, Open Show is used for the Halter classes with the WPCSA organization. This gives you the support for Hunter Jumper championships that you need for the performance classes and it gives you the multiple judge support that you need in the halter classes. All classes must have a WPCSA prefix. ShowPro sorts this all out and exports proper USEF and WPCSA results. A Welsh Entries report is included, as is a Junior Birth Dates report. All reports required for WPCSA are available as are electronic results for USEF and WPCSA. It doesn't get any better than this for Welsh/Cob.
The Open Show module gives you a blank slate and lets you configure exactly what you need. You create your own divisions and class templates to suit your requirements. The Open Show is used on its own or often it's useful as an adjunct to one or more other modules.
A horse show has much repetition. Most operations are of a nature that they
must be performed again, again, and again. How many adds and scratches are
there in a large horse show? How many judges cards will have to be processed?
How many sections will have to be combined or split? How many people will have
to be checked out? Things that have to be done to manage a horse show have to
be done many times, there's no getting around it. So one of the primary
requirements of a great horse show management software product is that the user
only be asked to expend the minimum amount of effort to perform any task.
It's not easy to write software that always puts the user first. The
programmer has to make a decision this is what they want to do, knowing
that it will require perhaps five fold the time and effort to do so. At every
step in the design they must make choices that will make the users job easier
and their job tougher. The programmer is constantly tempted to save some of
their time and effort at the expense of the user. In some kinds of software
they might be able to get away with this but not in a horse show management
But those that have been using an inferior software for a period of time get
accustomed to it. They don't realize that they're expending extra effort or
that the lines at check out don't need to be there. These are the people
that are most appreciative when they try a software that has been written to
truly minimize the amount of effort they must expend. Once they experience
this, they see the other software for what it is, something that was written
for the benefit of someone else, and they are no longer so willing to expend
extra unnecessary effort. They realize that the tools they have been using
have been preventing them from offering the best possible services to the
exhibitors and to horse show management.
Given the nature of horse show management a software is required that truly minimizes
the work required to perform each task. It really comes down to how well
and easily does the software perform each of the myriad tasks that make up a
horse show. From the perspective of the horse show office, those tasks are the
