I’m so grateful to have had this experience! Being in this environment allowed me to open up and drop my guard.Everyone here was so welcoming and brought me to a better place (horses and the people), an amazing combination.
Blue Star Ranch is just where I needed to be. It became my “safe space.” It gave me a chance to focus on myself, to realize that it was okay to unplug from the everyday grind.
The peaceful, remote environment provided a safe space to let go and truly process the things I kept suppressed, and having Nancy, Katie and Jack for support is more than I could ever hope for.
The experience I had with the horses was a really helpful coping skill. By interacting with the horses I was able to relax and most importantly, I learned to look at the horses as some of our soldiers.
