iPad App for NRHA / Markel Insurance Futurity Sales

Buyers and spectators for the National Reining Horse Association (NRHA) / Markel Insurance Futurity Sales (November 29 – December 1) can now download all NRHA / Markel Insurance Sale Horse Videos directly to their iPads. The Digital Horse Services (DHS) app allows potential buyers to preview sale horses before and during the sale simply and conveniently from their iPads. Thanks to the DHS iPad app, users can view available sale videos while on the road to the sale, in their hotels or while in the sale arena. Users can download videos and watch them later – even without an internet connection!


Videos will be available for download around the middle of November and will be neatly organized according to the NRHA / Markel Insurance Futurity Sale: Prospect, Breeders Showcase, and Marketplace.


The sales start at 9:30 a.m. November 29 through December 1 in Oklahoma City, Okla. during the NRHA Futurity & Adequan® North American Affiliate Championship Show.


How the App Works
The app must be downloaded from the App Store by searching for “Digital Horse Services.” The icon is black and white icon and says “DHS.” The app will ask for a User Number and a Password. The User Number is 66 the Password is nrha2012.


The user will want to be sure they have plenty of space available on his or her iPad to download videos. DHS suggests connecting to WiFi for the best results.


Once the videos are downloaded to the iPad, there is no need for an internet connection. This means no waiting for videos to stream, and each video can be instantly rewound and fast-forwarded.


From the Settings menu users can synchronize the videos and download the new videos as they are added to the DHS website. Be sure and check back regularly for new sale horse videos.
