How Horse Council BC started their wordpress theme design journey
Who are you known as?
Horse Council BC
Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We're Horse Council BC, a member driven service organization. The website we propose to build is for a new initiative, one designed to bring new people into the world of equestrian sport. Our target audience is women aged 16 and up from British Columbia, Canada. Our target ideally would be someone who was always interested in horseback riding, but never got the chance to try or someone who is coming back to it after years away. We seek to provide this audience with an easy, user-friendly portal to begin their horseback riding journey - discoverriding.ca
What industry do you think your business is most related to?
What do you have in mind for the style and theme of the WordPress theme?
We envision a site that is welcoming, visually rich, bright and colourful. Some image keywords (which need to strictly pertain to our core offering), would include: camaraderie, men and women, multicultural, western/cowboy lifestyle, barns, riding arenas, riding gear i.e. saddles, hay bales, barn wood. There need be no visual or stylistic cues taken from Horse Council BC's website - this project should be branded separately and stands alone.
Home: visual feast with button clicks to program 1 (Ticket to Ride) or program 2 (First Gait (coming soon; not live)). Page 2: Ticket to Ride, description and next step button. Page 3: First Gait (dormant) Page 4 Ticket to Ride sign-up form. Page 5: Ticket to Ride coach selection based on participant input from previous page (4) . Page 6: Thank you and acknowledgement of receipt of info. Page 7: About Page - about Horse Council BC and Discover Riding programs. Page 8: Contact us page
What to avoid
Distracting animations, Flash or anything that would take away from the overall user experience and ease of use. Not cute or corny, overly sentimental or whimsical.
Any images of people riding horses, must include the person wearing a hardhat or helmet. The page has to feel professional, yet welcoming, and easy to use above all. I know we've outlined the site as we want it to appear in the final version page wise, but we shouldn't need more than a few different page templates to cover exactly what we need for the Wordpress theme. The potential of this site to be expanded to more pages in the future is entirely possible - so we need to be able to have that function built into the Wordpress theme as well.
