The smart organiser
As an organiser (the instructor, trainer, clinician, horse centre and riding school), you probably want to save time and efficiently manage your bookings? Pluvinel.com gives you a full overview of who has booked and paid you for your clinics, courses, seminars or group lessons. You never have to send out invoices again, miss a payment or have to remind someone to pay for your services. The booking and paying takes only two clicks for the rider. All you do is schedule your events on Pluvinel and send the URL to your riders or Add student so they receive an invitation via Pluvinel. It is no hassle. Just fun!
Other benefits worth mentioning is avoiding double bookings, the system is counting the booked spots for you. The riders can see how many places are left instead of asking you. Then your riders can pay you online in their own time, but before, not after your event. This way you will never miss a payment again.
Nifty options like "open", "invitation only" and "reserve"
By choosing Open you operate with a first come, first served principle. This functionality allows the rider to book and pay for your event with two clicks. Any rider who wants to attend can sign up for your event. It is of course only possible to book as long as there are available spots left in the event. So, make sure you set the right number of spots/places.
When choosing Invitation only riders will have to ask to attend. You have more control over who are allowed to attend. When riders click Ask for invite you will receive a notification in your PADDOCK (the newsfeed on Pluvinel.com). In this notification you can choose the option to Accept or Politely decline. Depending on your action, the system will automatically send a notice back to the rider. When you Accept they will be receive a notification that asks them to book and pay for their spot. You will be notified when the process is completed.
When you already know some riders who are attending you group lesson, clinic, seminar or course you can add them to your event when you schedule the event. A spot will be reserve for them, and they will receive a notification in the system. They can book and pay you for their place with two clicks. In EVENTS overview, you will know that the riders have paid, and you will get a notification as well.
You can also add the riders easily after you have published the event.
Benefits for the rider; your student and client
By offering riders to book your group lessons, courses, clinics or seminar via Pluvinel, you save your time as well as their time. You will introduce a proactive habit of upfront commitment. Get into the habit of listing your events for for some times ahead. After one or two bookings your riders will prefer this simple approach, and it will become predictable. They will, like you, have a full overview of their bookings with you as well as their payments.
Any rider can easily find relevant information about organiser, instructors, trainers, the horse centres and ridings schools in addition to finding upcoming events.
"It is much better to have a page on pluvinel.com. It works great as a go-to online web-hub, much better than a page on Wordpress or something similar." Lin, Manager Stall-H

Here are some tips on how to write a useful text for your event?
Right now you are probably using several different channels for communication. Wouldn't it be preferable to have everything in one place? When people ask you, send them the URL to your Pluvinel profile where they can find your upcoming events, your services, your education, your location. On horse centre profiles they can also find see facilities and learn about your team when you connect your instructor and trainers to your horse centre profile.
Link your team members to your horse centre profile. The link has to be approved by the instructor/trainer of course. This is our favourite feature, we love it so much!! And hope you will too.
