From Hell To Home, In His Own Words

Through His Eyes

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.
