Simple steps to set up your account and make a booking
Step 1 - Registering
To register your account go to:
All riders must have an individual account in Hopoti, including minors. This enables staff to view the riders’ information and assign horses to them effortlessly.
Under the Riders tab in the blue boxes - click "Join Hopoti"
Step 2 - Individual or family account
If you are registering for a minor, please create a family account. You will need to enter your details in this page as the parent of guardian. The family account feature allows you to create a single guardian account that can be linked to several child accounts without the need for individual email accounts and the usual registration process. This makes the management, booking and cancellations of lessons very simple. Child accounts can also be used without accessing the guardian account first, so children can log in to see which horse they have been assigned to and browse a variety of other information. If you are only registering for yourself continue with this process, you do not need to create a family account.
Step 3 - Add us to your favourite stable
Please ensure you add The Equine Club under the tab "Add farourite stables" otherwise we will not be able to see your profile when booking. Also ensure you fill out all the required fields (except in the case of a guardian account where you will not be riding, there we do not need weight and height only contact details. All rider accounts must have weight and height entered. We have a weight cap of 90kg on all riders for the benefit of our horses.
Step 4 - Read service terms
Please read and accept service terms.

Step 7 - Add minors and other riders
To now enter your profile, go to the icon top right of your tool bar where your name is. If you click on your name, the screen here will appear and you can access many functions which we will explain at step 10.

Alternatively you can use the drop down box at your name on the main tool bar and go straight into account settings.
Step 8 - Add family member
From the account settings tab, check that all your details are entered and correct and "Save changes". Under the Rider details tab, you can confirm you have entered your ICE (In Case of Emergency) details. Do not worry about Skill Level, we do not use this function. If there is something you can tell us about your riding and any past experience, any medical issues or other issues we should be aware of please enter it under rider notes. The more information you can tell us about the rider in this space the easier it is for staff to assign the correct horse.
Step 9 - Family account
To add or link family members to a Family accounts box is fairly straight forward. Depending on the account you are signed in as, you can enter a parent account to be linked to the account or if you are logged in as a parent, you can either link an existing child account or create a new child account. Follow the tabs for which ever choice is necessary and link or create that new account. If you have any questions regarding this process please contact us and we can talk you through it.
