I found my most recent coach at a show, she was riding a basket case of a stallion that was trying his best to not do anything but leap around and she was really quiet with him and just got him working without resorting to beating the crap out of him or getting mad.
My new coach I decided to ride with because of all the great things I had heard, and I went and watched a clinic of hers and really liked it. I also love the way she rides, and the fact that she has ridden at the Olympics. She's turned out to be fabulous and I've learned a lot! Again she is really sympathetic to the horses and never uses un-due force.

The background made it hard to read some of the stuff. I personally dont like how much black is on the side of it.

There were a few times that the text was overlapping.
I clicked on the boarding and could barely read it. (because of all the overlapping)

On the boarding page I would rather see pictures of the barn than a horse grazing. Nevermind saw them on the facility page.
I would suggest taking pictures that didn't have Christmas decorations up. And maybe have a forward, reverse, or play/pause buttons, so someone could go through the pictures at the pace they wanted.

Overall its a nice site, with just a few things changed, i think it would look even better (but i'm a bit of a picky person)

I looked at the site on a 19" wide screen at home. At the office, I have a 19" screen and the form page is not overlapping. I'm also using Google Chrome at the office and Firefox at home. I'm not sure how it works for IE

It could just be the different screen resolutions, and I believe with that you need to redo the whole thing. I'm not sure, only going off memory when my fiance had to fix a website.

There is a local recreation magazine that we get monthly, and in it, there was an ad for horse riding lessons. We found out that it was only five minutes away, and signed up! Now, I am proud to say that I have been riding there for about three years, and it is a lovely barn with fantastic people and horses! A year or two ago, they made a web page for the barn as well.
