"In 2013, just two days after her 22nd birthday, Erin suffered a stroke and was diagnosed with an extremely rare brain disease called Moyamoya. At the time, we had visited Blue Sky a couple of times but hadn't participated in anything. They were quick to send her a get well fruit basket and card and it really brightened her day. I knew this was a place that I wanted Erin to be; these were people I wanted in her life. Fast forward several months after Erin had recovered from her stroke and two brain surgeries, she was welcomed with open arms at Blue Sky. She began other therapies to help her recover, but the therapeutic horseback riding had the most profound impact. There is something miraculous about the bond between a horse and rider and it is a beautiful thing to behold. I owe Blue Sky everything for what they did to help my daughter heal and what they continue to do in giving her a very special place where she belongs, where she is free to be who she is, and yet is challenged to be more, where she has friendships and a sense of purpose." - Danyelle Keller.
"Paige began riding at Blue Sky in 2013. After aging out of school Paige began riding to find extra things to do with her days. What she found was a new passion and love. Blue Sky gives her the ability to learn new things, set goals, compete with others, meet amazing friends and ride and care for the horses. All this which builds her confidence and gives her the ability to share her new passions with amazing friends." -Casey Southard.
"E. B. wanted to ride a horse. We took him to Blue Sky to ride. He rode and he also made the best of friends during the Purpose Project. He loves to go there and, oh, by the way, is doing great riding horses! Thank you Blue Sky Team!" -Nancy Brunk.
