World Horse Ranking System
 By Ponybox   •   15th Jun 2010   •   8,083 views   •   28 comments
Back in April we broke the news in the article Ponybox LLC Creates World Horse Ranking System about Ponybox LLC developing a website that will allow you to enter your real show results and see how your horse ranks in the world. This world ranking system will be a 1st and it is set for release in the coming weeks.

How will it work? The new equestrian ranking website we are developing will allow you to create a profile and enter show stats for your horse. Your horse will then be ranked with all horses throughout the world. As you compete throughout the year you can monitor your performance against others worldwide. The algorithm we have developed will rank all horses as a group no matter what discipline you ride.

World Horse Ranking System

We have received a lot of questions concerning this new ranking system and how we are able to rank Barrel Racing against Dressage or Jumping. The system we developed uses a complex algorithm that allows us to perform this ranking in a fair way with validity checks to limit cheating or false information. The result is a simple world rank for your horse and the ability to track your horses rank as you compete throughout the year.

We originally set a release date of late May, but due to extended coding requirements we have pushed the release date a few weeks to the right. We are now looking at a late July launch.

If you show your horse or just have questions about this exciting new website please leave a comment here and I will do my best to answer your questions.

What would you do if you sold your horse in real life? Would you still "own" that horse on the website?

@Pervelski - At this time the world ranking system is for real horses only.

@Fantasy Farms - You will still own the page with the stats you entered for the horse unless you transfer it to the new owner or the new owner can create a new page for the horse.

Will there be a setting where you can compare yourself to people in your own age group? :]

So you have to own a horse in real life to be able to do this??

@Kiwi - At this time we are not filtering results by age or other criteria, but in the future this may be an option.

@holls - We have included features to limit cheating. In fact if you look at the image above it has a validity score for the event. If you get caught entering false information it will have sever effects on your rank.

@Polo the Weirdo - It was fairly complicated, but we are excited to get this easy to use ranking system online. We hope this will become a gold standard for getting an idea of how your horse ranks with others around the world. We also began programming a value estimate that would give you a rough estimate of the value of your horse, but this proved to difficult since a large portion of the horses value is determined by its lineage.

I like the value estimate idea! It would be useful for a lot of performance horses!

It sounds like a fantastic idea don't get me wrong, however im still curious how your going to rank different competitions and levels against eachother. " system we developed uses a complex algorithm that allows us to perform this ranking in a fair way with validity checks to limit cheating or false information." Doesn't really explain it. You have mentioned "a complex algorithm" but what does that algorithm actually do?

@Miss Paradox - We are going to keep the algorithm a secret so that we use to rank horses. If we published the formula for ranking horses then it would be easier for owners to cheat.
