Dedicated to assisting Veterans through Equine Therapy to reduce suicide, divorce and PTSD.

Blue Star Ranch is an all-volunteer non-profit organization in Santa Clarita, CA, dedicated to assisting Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).

Simply put, we help Veterans cope with a myriad of issues, from re-engaging in civilian life to coping with problems that overwhelm systems like the VA.

With horses, love, understanding, sympathy, empathy and hard work. Our volunteers are veterans as well, and we make a difference to those who proudly served.

The mission at Blue Star Ranch is to provide equine assisted therapy to our nation’s Veterans with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and to reduce the suicide rate and divorce rate of their families. It’s our goal to help these veterans and families heal and prosper.


Our GOAL at Blue Star Ranch (BSR), is to help our veterans make a successful transition back to civilian life . We serve men and women veterans who have served in any capacity in any of our Military Branches. Therapy sessions are provided FREE to veterans.


Get involved and truly make a difference by adopting a horse, a stall, a client, a session or even care of the animals. Every ounce of effort helps us, so that we may help our veterans in need.


Blue Star Ranch is always looking for volunteers. Whether you assist with therapy at the highest level, or simply help us maintain the facility, you’re doing your part so that we can assist our Veterans with Equine Therapy.
