▲ Upon joining, you'll receive a PM from one of the staff members. That will be a good person to go to if you have any questions, even if you think they're silly! We've all been there.
▲ Pop onto the Discord chat! That's where we hang out, and we'd love to get to know you.
▲ Read the information in this board. I know there's a lot of it, and it won't all make sense all at once, but there's a lot of really great information in there!
▲ Once you have a basic grasp of how we work, it's time to make a stable site and horses! Most of us use Weebly for our stable sites. You can check out the Stable Directory for inspiration! Horses are created in the Horse Creation board. Anywhere from 2-5 racing age horses are recommended at first so you can get your feet wet without feeling bored! Try to vary their ages and surface/distance preferences so they don't overlap for you.
▲ Once your horses are accepted, your stable site is functional, and your horses have a workout, it's time to look at races! Check out the area of the Handbook again that talks about entering races, because you want to set your horses up for success as much as possible! This is a great time to double-check with a staff member or in the Discord if the races you've chosen are good ones, or just hit them up if you're not sure where to start! Entering the right races isn't all that confusing once you get the hang of it, but there are a few nuances to it that you'll get used to. The calendar info at the top should give you an idea of which week to enter (as in, the next race week to run), but if you're not sure then definitely ask!
▲ When you start racing, chatting, and getting to know us total horse geeks, the rest will come naturally. You can get involved with creating breeding horses (incredibly fun), buying or leasing horses from other members, and getting involved in the sales. You'll find that our entire community is willing to welcome you and help you out, because that's how we all got started!
Welcome to Final Furlong, we hope you'll stick around for a long time to come!
