I felt that it needed more interest. All of the fonts are the same but different sizes. Seemed like a site that might sell chemicals. Sorry but I have to be honest. I would like it to be more interesting and not so blocky looking.

I have to say I agree. It almost looks as tho it's a computer sales web page or something along those lines. You have some absolutely fantastic content to put in there, its all ready to go, but I would change the way the set up is. It's a really weird style for a horse web site. I would change the font, maybe move the text around, add more various riding pictures perhaps or horse photos instead of that circular logo. Add some color perhaps??

As posted above, it's to blocky and plain. I would lose interest. I'm in the process of building my site together so I know it's hard to find the right balance.

It'll be a REAL critique from me, so please don't be offended. While I like the overall website and amount of information you put on (pics are absolutely nice) there are still some changes I'd do.

1) The top part (header) should be smaller (like 2-3 times more narrow). It takes just too much of space. Also those HUGE letters don't do it any good. Make "Arabella..." smaller and "Quality Sport Horses..." really small and may be "italian". Then you'll be able to stuck them all in just 2 line and decrease the size of the header.

2) Capital letters are really hard to read and work through your brain generally.

3) Huge titles in capital letters make my eye hurt , also they cover good part of the page, so the picture is way down. Underlying the title and "." in the end of the title is also something you don't want on professional page. Make the letters like 30% smaller, better different style (italian, may be comic (not sure it's the best one but you can try)), and place on top of the middle part (I'm talking about Home page).

4) You want to be consistent with the background: if most pages are light blue (I LIKE the color, BTW), the "About Us", "Stallions" and whatever else should be blue as well.

5) That flashing number on main page is actually something you don't really need. It attracts attention more than your horses. If you REALLY want to display number of visitors place it all way down, smaller, and not fancy. Also people generally don't care when the website was updated (if at all). Especially in big letters. Frankly I'd just get rid of both - "updated" and flashing number, or make it much smaller in courier or times type of style and place all way on bottom.
