About The Designer...
Sara Love Spinler grew up in Colorado and had her first riding lesson at age 4 and she instantly fell in love and has been riding on a regular basis ever since. Sara began her show career in the hunter/jumper world, and garnered Year-end State Championships and Reserve Championships in both Pony Hunters and Equitation and Junior (youth) Hunters and Equitation.
In her last year of AQHA Youth competition, Sara was introduced to the AQHA show world, and became a member of the Rocky Mountain Quarter Horse Association. At her first ever show she won the Novice Youth Hunt Seat Equitation class, and had the quarter horse bug. That year she qualified her mare for Youth Worlds in Hunter Hack, Working Hunter, Equitation Over Fences and Jumping. Soon, as she went to college, she garnered an interest in the all around events. Showing her home bred horses, she had multiple circuit championships at all the major Colorado quarter horse events. In 2003, her last year of competition, Sara took her horse to major wins including the Reserve All-Around Novice at the National Western Stock Show, All-Around Novice Amateur at the Bellringer Circuit, All-Around English Horse at the Bellringer Circuit, and Circuit Championships at every show attended in 2003 including the Colorado Super Circuit. After selling this horse mid-season, Sara still was far enough ahead in points, that she was the Year-End Champion in both Novice Amateur Hunter Under Saddle and Hunt Seat Equitation, Top Ten in Showmanship and Top Five in the All-Around. In early 2004, she married and moved out of state. Currently she owns one mare, Whata Cool Breeze, that is on a breeding lease with Oak Hill Farms.
During this time Sara also dabbled in Appaloosa competition, winning Top Ten in the Nation in Non-Pro Halter Stallions with Love Performance Horses' then stallion, G I Love To Win in 1998. Sara then earned Top Ten in the Nation with Love Maid Me Move in Hunter In Hand Geldings, and World Show Top Ten in English Equitation in 2002 with the fancy homebred gelding. In 2003, Sara and Zipped So Lightly were World Show Top Ten in both Hunt SeatEquitation and Western Horsemanship.
Sara started designing equine websites in 1998. She took her first classes in college in website design (while majoring in Equine Science at Colorado State University with an Equine Industry concentration). Sara has since also completed an wide-ranging Website Design and Management Degree Program in the spring of 2006. This program included extensive work designing graphics.
In 2001, Sara decided to get serious with her own personal equestrian website to market her families horses and the results were amazing. She sold approximately 95% of her family’s 30-40 horses in 3 years just off her website design and marketing talents. While in Colorado, Sara was breeding, raising, showing and selling horses through her family farm, Love Performance Horses. At some point along the way, she had people not only inquiring on the horses for sale on the site, but also asking Sara who designed her website, and when she advised them she had designed and maintained the sites herself, they asked her to prepare and maintain sites for them. Thus, the beginning of Sara Love Spinler Website Design.
Sara has always maintained providing the highest quality of design and maintenance for a reasonable fee for the small breeders and website clients she maintains. She has also branched out into doing other types of websites besides just equestrian (although horses are so easy for Sara with her vast knowledge and great design sense for what information and visual graphic best portrays what information needs to be imparted to the reader).
Sara is proud to say the select customers she has prepared and maintained websites for over the last several years speak very highly of her and regularly refer her services to other persons in the equestrian field (see the Website References quotes from clients). Sara has never advertised, all of her clientele have been brought together by word of mouth from current clients to future clients- and for that she is very grateful and thankful.
Sara has also had several of its clients relocate their websites to her for a multitude of reasons including: reasonable pricing for updating and maintaining of existing sites, her knowledge of the industry (having both hands on experience and a college education in equine management) and the true value received for the dollar paid. For example, if a website client has a foal born today or sells a horse tomorrow, within 24- to 48-hours the foal’s color photo and genetic information will be on the website or in the case of selling a horse, the sold horses information will be marked on the site. Sara Love Spinler Website Design was formed out of the frustration of other website designers not maintaining their clients changing needs and for servicing its clientele with up to date information on their site in a timely fashion.
Updates are a very necessary part of a website design and maintenance service because users check a good website often and you want your clients and visitors to have a great experience at your site and be able to obtain the current information they are seeking. Sites that are not updated regularly, often web surfers just quit going to those sites - because they get bored of the same old thing, and lack of new information.
In 2006, at the urging of a new client, Sara has now officially expanded into graphic design work. She offers logo, business card, flyers & brochures and advertisement design to her clientele. Sara is open to designing other elements as well, so don’t hesitate to inquire if there is an advertising, marketing, informational piece you require and Sara will let you know if she can design it for you. For examples of Sara’s work please see her Website Portfolio or request more samples via email.
Sara is a "little guy" in the business of website design and maintenance but this in no way infers an inferior product. Quite the contrary, because Sara does all of the work herself she becomes very familiar with the clients needs and is a highly skilled expert in the design and long term maintenance of equestrian (and other business) websites. Sara has no plans for growing into a large website design company as she knows the key to customer satisfaction is keeping your workload at a level where every client gets quality personal service in a timely fashion for a reasonable fee.
