Running your sorting & penning events

Choose your event from the events list

Choose the class from the event’s classes list

ShowRunner software supports 2 and 3-rider sorting, 3-rider team penning, as well as mixed classes, gate/sort (ranch hand) classes, round robins, multigroup round robins, and more.

You can easily see the status of each class in your event. Someone can be checking riders into an upcoming class on one computer, another can be printing reports and invoices, and another can be running and announcing the sorting class in progress. Do it all on one system or across several laptops—whatever works best for you.

Register your riders

Registration is simple. Speed and accuracy are the focus here. Rider lookup that pops up as you type makes finding a rider fast and eliminates typo errors. Entering a rider’s picked partner automatically creates a new registration for the picked partner (if they aren’t already registered), or adds the current rider to the picked rider’s existing registration. Saves lots of typing and prevents entry error. Simple, not confusing. Registration slips conform to the class type and the Ride Rules you set when you created the class for your event.

Create your teams

One-click smart teaming logic creates best possible ride order for your team rosters. Getting the most possible team rides while also minimizing individual rider back-to-back rides, even when running multiple arenas. Unmatched partners can happen, but resolving them is easy by adding a rider or changing a draw. Once your teams are set, Team Rosters and Projected Payout reports can be printed from any show computer. All reports are generated and saved to .PDF format and can be viewed on screen, saved, and printed.

Print team rosters

Team rosters come in two easy-to-read, organized formats. The Roster by Team report is a simple format listing teams in class ride order. The Roster by Rider report makes it much easier for riders to ride up, find their name in one place, and see all their partners in ride order.

Print your Class Worksheet

The Class Worksheet is similar to the Roster by Team, but adds some handy fields to keep a handwritten audit of class sort results. The anticipated cattle changes are also shown in the left margin which can also be useful for your cattle change crew. Although this report is not required to run the show, it can be handy.

Rider invoice & checkout

You can check out a single rider or several in a group, at any time, and from any of your show computers. On-screen detail for classes, teams, and sorts are shown for each rider being checked out. Ride credits and other preset charges or miscellaneous charges can be entered before a final invoice is produced. 

Rider invoices are chock full of useful information about how each rider placed in each class—winnings, scores, and timing results of each sort. Summary performance statistics are presented so riders can check their own performance. Producers have gotten rider compliments on the invoice look and detail. 

Show sponsors also get a prominent position on the printed invoice for your riders.
