In order for an entry's total points to include Under saddle and Model
points, the entry must rank within the "Top N" (typically 4) over fences
points within the division.
A setting is provided so that you can change the Top N value for unique
situations. For example, for California split divisions, you may want to
change the TopN value to 8.
A setting is provided for California Split champ / reserve placing.
When this is enabled, HSS will compute a minimum of 2 champions and 2
reserves in the division.
When there are ties for champ / reserve, HSS will attempt to break the
tie based on the entry's Over fences points.
Champ and Reserve are determined based on total points.
When a tie occurs, HSS will look at the separate subtotal of just Over
fences classes for the tied entries to break the tie if possible.

entry in the show. A comparison is provided with exports to Excel and
It is important to understand that a person may be related to multiple
entries, but you should only charge the fee(s) once per person, and NOT
for each entry. The tool should be used only for comparing USEF against

Your mission is to ensure the TOTAL overall fees you have charged equal
what USEF expects.

truly reached end of life.
HSS is compatible with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.

4 GB of memory - 8GB or more is recommended, especially for your server. The cost of additional
memory is minimal and has a huge impact on performance of the computer in
general as well as HSS.

Oct 7, 2003 Version 3.2.63
Support added for "Sibling classes":
Sibling classes let you have a "master" class and one or more classes with
the same properties that are related to the master class - in other words a
"group" of classes. When a horse is entered into the master class it is
also entered into ALL the sibling classes that are related to the master
With this feature you can easily manage double judged classes as well as
triple and quadruple judged classes with total flexibility on a class by
class basis. HSS numbers the sibling classes using the same class number as
the master class with a .1, .2, .3 etc. appended to the end of the class
EG: Master class=200, then sibling classes would be 200.1, 200.2, 200.3 ...
Considerations with sibling classes:
- HSS will attempt to add / scratch an entry from all siblings when an
entry is entered into / scratched from a class. Under some
circumstances HSS will not scratch an entry from a sibling class. EG: if
results have been posted to the sibling class
- Class entry fees are used for each sibling. Therefore the total
amount billed will be the entry fee multiplied by the number of siblings
(including the base class). So if you have the base class and one
sibling, and the Base class entry fee is $25.00, then the amount billed
will be 2 x $25.00 = $50.00.
- Prizes are computed and awarded in the normal way for EACH of the
siblings (and master) in the group.
- Results are entered for each sibling.
- When entering into a group of sibling classes, simply enter the base
class number. There is NO need to specify the sibling class numbers. HSS
will enter the entry into all the related classes.
- The invoice will list each sibling in the group.
- Results and points will be computed on EACH of the siblings in the
group. In other words, the sibling classes are treated just like regular

each division in descending order of total points

are listed in each division in descending order of total points
Added new global report:

Horses are listed in each division in descending order of total points
Prize money can be
printed on invoices – modify show properties accordingly
Prize money can be
applied to invoices as a credit amount – modify show properties
display class results
Invoices will either say
“Please Pay:” or “Refund Due:” depending on net amount due on invoice.
A problem with the
“Change show properties screen” taking a long time to open has been
Cheques display the type
of cheque: either “PRIZE” or “REFUND”.
You can NOT create CASH
cheque if running in “Apply prize money to invoices” mode.
Fixed bug with bulk
class closing function that may have prevented classes from closing.
Invoices grid now correctly filters out
invoices with a $0.00 balance.
A warning is now issued if you attempt to
change the sort order of cheques in the cheque printing form. This is to
help avoid problems when printing and auto-numbering cheques.
Added and scratching classes via the + and
– keys in the classes tab in the entry editor will now warn you if the
class specified doesn’t exist or if (when scratching) the entry was not
entered in the class you are attempting to scratch them in.
A new button “Save and Prompt for Entry”
on entry editor allows you to save the current entry and immediately
input the next entry number you want to edit. You can also immediately
jump to this button with a CTRL-ENTER keystroke. This makes it very easy
to jump from entry to entry without going back to show manager.
Notes on prize money applied to invoices
Prize money / results
will only be shown and applied to invoices after a class is CLOSED. Do
not expect to see results on invoices until you close the classes the
entry is entered into.
A new field is used with
cheques to indicate the actual cheque amount versus the prize amount
When applying prizes
against invoices the cheque amount paid will be the net winnings AFTER
the winnings have been first used to credit the invoice.
You will notice that in
“Apply prizes to invoices” mode, you will still see “PRIZE” type cheque
records in the cheques grid, however the “Chk Amount” field will be
$0.00. The “Prize” field will still reflect the prize amount the entry
has won. 1099 / Tax reporting still uses this amount regardless of
refund cheques issued.
When a show is running
in “Apply prized to invoices” mode:
the cheque printing
system will create “REFUND” cheques and update the “Cheque amount”
payable when you open the cheque printing manager. ONLY cheques that
are NOT already marked as “printed” will be updated. Existing REFUND
cheques (if any) that are marked as printed but have an incorrect
amount will be marked as VOID.
You can only access
the check printing manager if ALL classes are closed. This also
implies therefore that you must close all classes before any refund
cheques can be created and issued. This is fair since you really don’t
know what the refunded amount will be until all prizes are awarded and
therefore applied to invoices.
You should avoid
issuing refund cheques until you are absolutely sure you will not be
editing any fees, payments or other things that might modify invoices.
Refund cheques are based on credit balances on invoices. Change any
invoice amounts and you will have sent the wrong refund amount.
Cheques now have a
“Type” field to indicate if the amount is a refund or a prize payout.
Refund cheques are created when you have configure the show to “Apply
prize money to invoices”. The refund amount is the net refund due after
applying payments and prize money to invoices. Their may or may not be a
check depending on how much money an entry has won and their payments and
Changing the prize money
award scheme after starting a show is not recommended for obvious
