Wellington, FL – September 13, 2013 – Award-winning equestrian architect John Blackburn’s beautiful new book, Healthy Stables by Design, is already proving to be a hot ticket item. Even before its publication date of Sept. 16, the book is nearly out of stock and the distributor has sent for more copies. 

Healthy Stables by Design, a museum-quality coffee table book, illustrates Blackburn’s approach to equestrian architecture. Exquisite photography and insightful commentary make the book an enjoyable and educational read. The book details Blackburn’s key concepts and strategies for providing horses with a healthy, safe living environment. 

Blackburn will be making a series of appearances over the next year to celebrate the launch of Healthy Stables by Design. Along with stops at many of the private barns featured in the book, he will hold signings and events at bookshops, museums, equestrian venues and major horse shows, including the Alltech National Horse Show and the Washington International Horse Show.

Healthy Stables by Design serves as a perfect addition to your library or a thoughtful holiday gift for equestrian friends and family members. All author profits from sales of the book will go to support the important work of equine charities. Healthy Stables by Design will be available for purchase Sept. 16, and you may preorder now to secure your copy.
