Sections / Individual Classes

Sections are a Hunter/Jumper concept. If you are not using the Hunter Jumper Discipline you won't have sections and you should look at Class Templates.

Sections are set up one time in ShowPro and are reused each time you create a horse show. Many people use the word "Division" for what the USEF and ShowPro refer to as a section. A section (or division if you prefer) is a set of classes for which a championship will be awarded at your horse show. A Hunter section for example usually has 3 or maybe 4 over fences classes and one under saddle class.

When we say individual classes we are not talking about any given class in your horse show but rather are talking about individual class types that you will create once and reuse in your horse shows. These are stand alone classes that are not part of a section and thus have no championship. Warm-ups and Medal classes are good examples of individual classes.

One of the beautiful things about ShowPro is that you only need to set your sections and classes up one time and you will resuse them for every show you. You can add sections and classes as you go along as needed.

Note: If you're doing USEF rated shows you will have the opportunity to load USEF Zone Configurations that we have pre-configured for you. You won't have to create them manually. You can however create them for local Organizations. Also check if your local organization is using OrgPro, our organization and points management product, you may be able to import not only all the organizations sections but also their members and horses.

When you click the Sections / Individual Classes button on the Edit Organizations screen the Sections / Individual Classes Dialog will appear:

Note: Whether you're evaluating ShowPro or are already a registered user please do not hesitate to contact our technical support department at (734) 667-3390 for help setting up the software. We are available seven days a week during the day and evening. We can advise you in the technical and strategic aspects of setting up your organization.

Hunter Division Sections Dialog

Notice a few things...

  1. Currently sections are selected but you can select classes.
  2. A show type that you created is selected.
  3. The Hunter Division is selected.
  4. There is a New button.

New Hunter Section Dialog

When you click the New button a "New Hunter Section" is added.

Edit the name of the section and if you are configuring the USEF organization enter the appropriate USEF section code. If you are not configuring the USEF organization or this is an unrated section you can leave the section code blank.

Hunter Division Sections 1YG Dialog

Here the name has been edited and a section code is being entered. USEF section codes are required for submission of USEF electronic results as of December 1, 2004.

 

Note: A list of USEF section codes is at the end of this topic.

You will repeat this process for every section in your horse show. Don't add anything here that won't have a championship at your show, that means no warm-ups, no classics, no medals, etc.

Once you complete your Hunter sections switch the Divisons drop down to Jumper and configure your Jumper sections. Then switch the Divisons drop down to Equitation and configure your Equitation sections. Then if you have any Hunter Breeding sections select Breeding and setup those sections.

If you have multiple show types repeat the above process for each of them.

Hunter Division Classes Dialog

Once you complete your Sections select Classes and configure your classes. Remember, these are class types that you will use in all your horse shows not specific classes in any show, don't start entering your prize list here! Once you create a show then you will create your class list using the sections you created above and the class types that you create here. You will do this on the Show Screen.

Hunter Division Classes Medal Dialog

Here an Equitation individual class type has been added that is a recognized USEF Medal class and the section code is being entered.

Note that Classes is slected, not Sections.

Note: You will notice in the table below that the USEF provides section codes for "(COMBINED)" sections. We do not recommend you create a Green Working Hunter (Combined) section for example. The reason is that when you combine sections in ShowPro the original sections code will be output in the results on an individual place basis, this saves a considerable amount of work in processing the results.

If you are only offering the combined section in your prize list it is good to create classes with numbers outside of the range of used class numbers for the other section and then combine the section.

For example, you're offering Green Working Hunter with class numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Make classes 1-5 First Year Green and then add classes 601,602,603,604,605 as Second Year Working Hunter. Then combine the 1st and 2nd Year Green sections, which is only a mouse click or two. End result, classes 1-5 are a combined Green Working Hunter Section, and results will be reported correctly on an individual place basis. This will make USEF or your local organization extremely happy with you!
