      Any shapes

      You can draw your plans in any shape and size you want. Rectangles, polygons, ovals... or any irregular shape you choose.


      Measuring, time limit, time allowed

      A built in measuring tool makes it easy to precisely estimate the distance between any two points on the course.

      The distances can be measured and time allowed and time limit will be calculated.

      Scale can be adjusted to get an overview of the entire course, or to zoom into a specific detail.

      Standard setting for measuring is meters, if you want you can change this to feet and inches.


      Exact scale

      Everything that you place on the course will be according to scale, with the correct length and width of the obstacles.

      You can even state the desired length of the poles for each obstacle.

      Prepared models and plans

      You will find ready made oxers, verticals, walls, water jumps...
      The program also includes a set of prepared models. Choose bars, planks, gates etc. You decide the height and length by clicking or by simply typing in your figures.

      Also for driving

      For driving you have the corresponding features. You can find what you need for obstacle driving as well as for marathon.  Some ready made obstacles and also parts to design exactly the obstacles you want.

      Save and use again

      You save all your drawings in a file.

      When it is time to create a new class, you can use the previous one as a starting point. Just by drag and drop you can easily move the obstacles in to new positions, finding the right lines.

      Next time you start you have all the obstacles and details ready for new designs.

      Draw and print at the show

      With Acuro on your laptop you can make your last changes and even make new course plans during the show. Save pdf-files to a memory stick and let the show office make the copies required.

      You can have different prints for your assistants, for judges, speakers or media.

      You can have 3d-images showing the obstacles and the arena. Acuro is the only program in the world with those features. It is a complete program for equestrian course planning.


      You can have your course plans with text and information in any language.

      Before printing you can edit the headlines, subheads etc. and choose any text you want to appear on the course plan. 

      The working language for Acuro is English, but you can translate the prints to whatever you want.

      List of obstacles with specification

      For jumping. This is a plan for the obstacles that you are using. You will also find a picture of each obstacle and its measurements. Just type in the information needed when creating the 3d jumps and you can have a specification printed.
