Definately gives me a sense that it's a nice, caring facility and I would certainly email for more info after looking at the website! Only suggestions is more bigger and better pics. Lots of good quality pictures make a HUGE difference. Might even be worth it to hire a photographer to come in for a day and get some shots of all the amenities for boarders, a few of lessons, horses around the farm, etc.
I would definitely contact you to ask about it. I really love your re-riders part and the way you talk about the horses and the care that your partner deserves. It gives a sense that you will be willing to work with the people and horses to suite everyone's needs in the best way possible. Good luck
The font used for most of the wording is kind of small to quick reading.
The training link takes to the lesson page with no separate header for the training information. I see it there under the lesson header but maybe it should be separate if it is going to have its own link?
I agree, more photos of the facility would be good.
I would like to see larger pictures and more of them. Do you have an arena and/or round pen? If you have an arena I would like to see it and the jumps or letters. If you don't, that may be a consideration in whether I would board there or not (if I wanted to do more then just trail ride - and even then).
First of all, I love the website! You really get the sense that it is not a big stable in it for the money and that you guys really care about the horses and how satisfied the people will be. I agree with adding more pictures, and also- this coming from a lesson-taker point of view- I would like to see a bit of information on the instructors. I like to see who would be giving me lessons, their accomplishments, how long they have been riding, their specialties, etc. It looks like a gorgeous, caring barn! Good luck for when you open it to boarders .
Thanks! There are two more barns already on the property, a 12 horse barn and a much larger barn with 40 stalls that's attached to the indoor (but closed off). Between us we already have five horses lol.
The owners will be boarding horses out of the 12 horse, so it won't be just ours. But we got extremely lucky. We found it by putting an ad in craigslist of all places LOL!
I really like your barn! So jealous of the indoor! However, I've seen about 20 other barn websites with that layout. Whose your host? Yahoo? Yahoo has a site builder that is pretty easy to use. All you have to do is find a back ground.. get one of these lovely art work ladies to make you a banner and presto! I did mine with the site builder... it isn't the best but I didn't want a cookie cutter website. Beware though! Before you know it you've spent two days in your pajamas designing it. )
