New Year Advancement
Say goodbye to re-doing all of your entries every year! The ASSA now features auto advancement for most classes. What does that mean? Any time an administrator runs the advancement function, horses are bumped out of classes they are too old for and into the next appropriate class (if one is identified).
In-Hand Classes: Horses that are age 31+ when the script runs will be bumped out of all of their in-hand classes. Geldings that have aged above 3 will no longer be entered in a "Halter" class, as there are no "Halter" classes for older geldings, but will still advance through liberty, etc.
Prospect Classes: Discipline prospect classes, including the 0-2 in-hand and the 3-4 under saddle classes, will be dropped if the horse is too old.
Ridden Classes: Horses that have turned 31+ will be dropped from their classes. All other horses will be moved into the correct class for their age if it is an age-specific class, or stay where they are if it is a rider-specific class.
So, what do I need to do in the new year?
After a staff member has announced that advancement was run, you will need to:
- Make all entries for new horses
- Make ridden class entries for horses that have aged out of prospect classes
I age my horses more than once per year. Can I get my horses advanced at other times?
Absolutely! Just ask a staff member to run advancement on your herd only.
