about us

Love Your Life Again

Blue Star Ranch is a private horse ranch and event facility on a 140-acre expanse in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina, right between downtown Cashiers and downtown Highlands. The Ranch hosts private events for leaders, teachers, groups, and individuals of various disciplines to retreat and collaborate. Our cornerstone program is RingLeader Equine Coaching, which is offered as a part of our events or through private appointment with Dr. Trish Ring.

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 disparate land plots to create a haven for people seeking a return to nature and a renewed sense of purpose in their lives.
