Live Online Scoring, Up to the Minute Leaderboard
Scores entered in the software are immediately posted on the web! The Leaderboard dynamically updates as placings change within a division. Draw Lists, Wait Lists, and Ride Times are also available online.

The online Results and Leaderboard are hosted by StartBox so you don't have to provide any of the technology. The Leaderboard can also be enabled on your event's own website. The USEA homepage will feature a link to your event's results, driving more attention and traffic to your competition.

Scoring

Dressage, Cross-Country and Stadium all at the same time? Piece of cake. Send a scorer with a laptop down to the stadium ring while others enter dressage and cross-country scores as they come in.

Entering Horse and Rider

Entry Management

Drastically reduce the drudgery of entering horse and rider data by tapping into online databases and dividing the workload among multiple people simultaneously.

Scheduling

Say goodbye to the frustration of scheduling hundreds of riders, many with multiple horses in multiple divisions! The software helps you sort it all out.

Reporting

The event may be over, but your work isn't done. There's all those reports to be filed! With the click of a button, you can generate USEA, USEF, FEI results and many other useful reports.

Background

AEC Results
2007 AEC Online Results

How did this software come to be? The StartBox team has provided website services as well as secretarial and scoring support to Cosequin Stuart Horse Trials and CIC** since 2001. We know first-hand the frustrations and challenges of running such a complex sport. Since 2003 we have been developing this software to make our jobs easier, adding more features and smoothing out the edges each year.

We decided it was time to share our creation with other horse trials around the country, beginning with Live Online Scoring at the American Eventing Championships in 2007. Public response to the online scoring system has been overwhelming and we are thrilled to be able to provide this service to the entire eventing community.

Key Features

Web-based Software

  • No software to install on your computer. All you need is an Internet connection - even dial-up will work and there are wireless options for those located in the middle of nowhere. StartBox provides and maintains the servers on which the software is running.
  • Access from any computer, anywhere, anytime.
  • Multiple people can work on entering data or scoring at the same time.
  • All data entered is immediately available on the web.
  • Safe and secure - all data is securely stored on the web server and backed up daily.

Easy to Use

We've spent years developing and field-testing this software to ensure that Organizers and other event personnel are able to dive right in and start using the software. A live, online "playground" version of the software is available so you can get a feel for it before your own event.

Flexible

The software allows you to run any number of different levels or types of competition, including USEA and FEI CIC levels, Young Event Horse, and Combined Tests. In addition, you can choose to run a division in either Dressage/Cross-Country/Stadium order or Dressage/Stadium/Cross-Country order and switch between the two on the fly if needed.

Use any or all of the 4 software modules - Entries, Scheduling, Scoring, and Reporting. Only need Online Scoring? No problem. Only use the modules needed for your competition.

Divide and Conquer

The amount of work doesn't seem so overwhelming when you can split it up! With multiple people simultaneously entering data or scores, stuff gets done in a hurry.

Communicate with your audience

Riders, owners, and spectators want information and they want it now! Give them what they want with draw and wait lists, ride time, and scores posted directly to the web.

Future Integration with USEA Online Entry System

Horse and Rider data will flow effortlessly from the USEA Entry database to your show if you are using the StartBox Online Scoring System. Keep your eyes peeled for more information about this forthcoming service from the USEA!
