Offering therapy for war veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is the mission of Blue Star Ranch. After years of research by medical experts, the general public has come to realize the gravity of PTSD and the need for therapy and recovery solutions, particularly for war veterans and their families.
Blue Star Ranch is a charity that utilizes horses to rehabilitate suffering war veterans. The purpose is to provide a mechanism which is unique, distinct and effective and heals the pains and wounds of the soldiers. It is meant to help individuals and their families and get back into a normal civilian lifestyle as smoothly as possible.
The use of horses for PTSD is a method to engage the veterans outside of the clinic and medical environment. Under the supervision of a counselor or other mental health professional, combined with an equine specialist, the veteran and his/her spouse are paired with a horse. This is a lively method of treating the soldiers by engaging them in a healthy activity, while not always giving the impression they are in a form of therapy.
