Groups allows you to manage your stable easier by being able to put your horses into groups (categories).
You can put your own horses into various groups of your choice, to easily help organise your stable. For example: you may wish to group your horses by the various grades available eg 'Grade 1', 'Grade 2' and 'Grade3'.
Or you may wish to group your horses by 'Age', 'Sex' or 'Colour' if required, for example: ‘Brown’, 'Black', 'White' or 'Chestnut'.
You can filter for your horses to find them easier (particularly if you are running a big stable) by using the various filters on the page.
If you wish to find all the 'brown' labled horses in your stable (provided you have assigned all the brown horses into the 'Brown' stable group), simply select the brown group under the 'Horse Group' dropdown filter. Click > 'Filter'. All your horses assigned to the 'Brown' group will now be displayed.
If you would simply like to find your horses assigned to groups with a specific Age or Grade for example, simply select the age under the 'Age', or 'Grade' in the 'Grade' filter respectively. Click > 'Filter'. All your horses of the matching age or Grade will now display.
You can also search for a horse by use of the various options under the 'Status' filter. Eg. Active, Retired , In Auction, In Claimer.
Under the 'Show' filter you will be able to find your horse or other member's horses you have assigned to various groups. By simply selecting 'All' from the dropdown menu under the 'Status' filter and all your assigned and other member's horses assigned to groups will display.

If you would like to find other member's horses which you have assigned to groups, simply select 'Other Horses' from the dropdown menu under the 'Show' filter and click > filter. All other horses assigned to groups by you will display.
