The developer of an equine management platform says he was honored to be named as a finalist for a prestigious Australian award.

HorseRecords, created by Andy Ide, reached the South Australia/Northern Territory state finals of the iAwards, Australia’s longest-running and most broadly scoped innovation recognition program, managed by the Australian Information Industry Association.

HorseRecords helps those managing horses record performance, veterinary, farrier, feeding, dentistry, chiropractic, breeding, and more.

“To be celebrated on the same shortlist as the best in this category has been a tremendous boost for me – and industry confirmation the work I have done, and am still evolving, is going in the right direction and meeting a market demand,” Ide said.

It is thought to be the first time an equine industry SaaS (software as a service) product has received such an accolade.

“We owe a huge thanks to the 2022 iAwards judges, who vetted HorseRecords as a comprehensive horse husbandry application enabling owners and horse businesses to customise information and gain insights while promoting ethical ownership and investment in the animal.”

Ide built HorseRecords in consultation with industry specialists including breeders, vets, trainers, farriers, and rehabilitation specialists to capture and document key information needed to make critical decisions. He also worked with Racing SA and Thoroughbred Racing NT to develop the app for the management of retired racehorses.

Programs in those states are now using the tool to monitor the welfare of their horses, and provide new owners with a resource to improve stable management.

HorseRecords supports the proactive and ethical care of racehorses moving to other forms of equitation and those retirees can be tracked and monitored at every stage of their post-racing careers.
