Aquilo facilitates many of the office tasks during a student riding competition: It maintains the data of riders and teams, generates drawing lots, starting lists, and differences for each round. Final results can be calculated for different competition types and displayed in various ways. Many of the rules for CHIU/SRNC, WUEC, and German CHUs are supported.
Given an arbitrary number of teams, the program generates an "empty" competition with typical settings for all rounds. These round settings may be adapted to the organizers' needs before the round is started. Using Drag&Drop, riders can be assigned to their horses easily. During a round, all affected differences are automatically updated whenever a new result is entered.
