Live in Step with Nature

Blue Star Ranch is a private horse ranch on a 170-acre expanse in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, right between downtown Cashiers and downtown Highlands. At Blue Star Ranch we focus on getting back to nature to live a life in step. Read more about it in our upcoming lifestyle book, A Blue Star Life: Living in Step!

The Owners

Blue Star Ranch is the brainchild of Trish and Carl Ring who, after a series of life-changing events, were inspired to restore and unite disparate plots of land to create a haven for people seeking a return to nature and a renewed sense of purpose in their lives.
