She is a frequent speaker at the National Equine Law Conference in Kentucky, the equine law conference in California, and is regularly published on this subject.

Ms Bloomquist was the chair of the Animal Law Section of the Minnesota State Bar, for two consecutive years 2005-2007, and chaired the first ever Animal Law Conference sponsored by the Minnesota State Bar Association in April 2006.
