Bob Blackwell Gaited Horse Shoeing Clinics

Bob Blackwell teaching farrier shoeing information to veterinarians at a University of Missouri at Columbia, MO,  USDA veterinary medical officer (VMO) training clinic.  Bob is a highly trained and skilled farrier (accredited by Cal Poly and the CRC) and lacking only 1 year of  veterinary school.
Blackwell  has assisted and  worked with noted veterinarians in various aspects of corrective shoeing from California, to the Mid West to the Univerisity of PA . 
Blackwell has done work with all legitimate forms of corrective shoeing and has worked with veterinarians for over 30 years helping to combine the knowledge of veterinarians and farriers helping to produce effective treatments and cures for many race track injuries, stifle problems, laminitis, etc. Outside of equine problems, Bob has also worked with small animal veterinarians in areas unrelated to horses which includes working with veterinarians to correct sports dog injuries, etc. 
Bob Blackwell has also trained others to shoe horses and has conducted clinics for those interested in various aspects of shoeing throughout the US, and in Australia and England where he toured with a wild west show and rode for the Queen of England. Among famous horses which the now "old cowboy" has shod are the Knotts Berry Farm horses, "She Kitty", Shriner's Rose Parade horses, "Joll Bars", to name a few of the "celebrity" horses. 
Today Blackwell is semi retired but does gaited horse shoeing clinics for the general public. His
clinics are informative and entertaining and are often done in conjunction with his round pen and problem solving clinics aimed at teaching the rider to incorporate gentle, practical, and supportive training techniques in their riding and training program.
