    There is more to building a stable than meets the eye. In this modern age where horses are more the equine athlete rather than the workhorse of old, their housing and welfare needs have changed and evolved. Equine athletes need to not only be housed in the best facilities that allow for good training and fitness, they need housing that keeps them in touch with their natural environment. The man who is expert in attaining these requirements and transforming the environment that horses and humans need into an aesthetically pleasing architectural structure is John Blackburn. - Oct/Nov 2013
