Polo for a Cause A Blue Star Ranch Event
The relationship between a human and a horse is rewarding and unique. Horses are real and present beings. They live in the here and now. They constantly build and maintain positive relationships with each other and their environment. This is what makes them such incredible therapy animals.
Therapy sessions at the ranch involve the Blue Star Ranch (BSR) Team of therapy horse(s), Licensed Mental Health Specialist who is also certified in this therapy, and Certified Equine Specialist. This team works one-on-one with the veteran. The focus is on-the-ground, there is no horseback riding involved. It is solution-oriented. And, our services are free to veterans and their families. We must heal the whole family.
Horses sense emotions in humans and react accordingly. This is the atmosphere needed to bring emotional problems to the surface for examination.
On Saturday, May 18, the California Polo Club will be presenting “Polo Expo For Veterans”, a fun event that will allow attendees to see a real working relationship between horse and rider, while supporting Blue Star Ranch.
We would like to invite you one and all to this exciting event. And there is even a half time show being put on by the Blue Shadow Riders Competition Drill Team Champions. You won’t want to miss this unique opportunity either. Dinner is included (no rubber chicken). Tickets are available for all pocketbooks. $25, $40, and VIP Seating for four with perks for $250.
