Blackburn’s Tour Announcement

Click on this link to check out John’s full tour list. Today the first private event kicks off in Illinois!

“Pegaso Farm’s owner challenged Blackburn to design the barn in the Prairie style of Frank Lloyd Wright. The goal was to design the farm with the owner’s preferences in mind, while creating a healthy environment for horses with their sensitive respiratory systems. The result balanced the needs of the owner, the demands of the site and the health of the horse.

In addition to his visit to Pegaso Farm, Blackburn will make public appearances at bookshops, museums, equestrian venues and major horse shows across the country. All author profits from the book will be donated to various equine charities.”

Healthy Stables by Design at the Washington International Horse Show

I hope some of you saw the mention of River Farm (designed by Blackburn Architects) in Washington Life Magazine, as well as the information on the Washington International Horse Show. I plan to exhibit my new book, Healthy Stables by Design, at the Washington International Horse Show from Oct. 22-27. I will be on the concourse every night (except Friday) from 7 pm to 9 pm selling and signing books. On Friday, there will be a formal book launch party in the Acela club for skybox level ticket holders and invited guests. Ten percent of book sales throughout the entire event will be donated to PATH International’s Wounded Warrior Project. If you are planning to attend the show, please feel free to stop by and say hello!
