The "Camp" in BaseCamp
Throughout the week-long program BCI’s participants (veterans and family members) are housed at White Stallion Ranch (“WSR”), an award-winning family owned and operated dude ranch. WSR affords BCI’s participants the opportunity to utilize the communication skills they cultivate from their time training mustangs in an environment that is fun, engaging, and community oriented. From trail rides and lessons, to team penning and BCI tailored horsemanship clinics, WSR ensures that the week-long program is truly immersive.
Head Wrangler "Herd Mare"
Carol is BCI’s WSR program coordinator affectionately referred to by participants as the “herd mare”. Carol’s horsemanship skills are matched only by her ability to teach others how to develop a healthy bond with their horses - and to have fun while doing it!
