On the front page "provide highly personal services such as:" is slightly blocked by the picture, and it overlaps the top of the text on the next line.

On the Boarding page, "Barn Rules and Guidelines" overlaps the next line. Once you decide on boarding price are you going to list it on your site? Or a price range, depending on amenities chosen by your boarders?

On Training, there is some text near the bottom (it starts with "You can view other") that overlaps some other text and makes it impossible to read. And the last line at the bottom of the page is cut in half by the black border.

On Lessons, the picture obscures some of the text. The link at the bottom is covering some text.

On Local Hauling, the large text "Local hauling" is overlapping some of the text.

That's enough to leave you with for now . I haven't looked the other pages yet.

By the way, you have some gorgeous horses on your site . Good luck working out the bugs.

I went through every page and I must say, the website looks WONDERFUL!

Personally, that's something that I look at when judging a barn or any place of business for that matter.

I'm checking on a Mac running Firefox. :)

I couldn't find any overlapping or anything gone wrong.

I'm on a PC running firefox, and there is definitely overlapping, hmmmm.....interesting. I'm not a programmer/computer type, so I don't know how you get both types of machines to "see" things the same way.

The overall look is beautiful though.

It's true that I also saw some overlap on various spots. I am at work and using Explorer from a PC.
The site looked great! Tho I wouldn't mind seeing prices for the various options for board, unless you want to try to grab the possible client and get them to call you to get prices(tho I know a lot of people me included, where if I don't see the info I want, which would be the price of board, I would keep looking somewhere else).

The information on the cost of lessons wasn't very clear either. What does "$35/40" mean? Are you unsure of the exact lesson charge you want to give people?

Also, I like to see pictures and information about the people running the barn, giving lessons. Having a page where you give information about yourself, the achievements you've made, shows, your level of experience. Have some pictures of yourself etc. A lot of people will want to know who they are dealing with.

Great site otherwise, very classy and catches the eye.

Now, I could access the downloadable files for the prices, too. Huh. I wonder why that is?

I think that's where the "About Us" section comes in. They have info and photos. :)

On your "About Us" section, the link to Prince doesn't work. -

It goes nowhere. :/

ETA: Checked it out on Safari with a Mac and it all looked good, too. :)

I had my hubby check on his PC since he has the latest version of firefox (3.5.5) on his computer, and everything looks clean.

He did suggest, however, that you should make words links not pictures. For example, on your services page: Boarding should link to the boarding page, not the picture below it.

He also thinks you have too many pictures on your main page so people might get impatient waiting for it to load and go look at other stables instead.
