Since 1977, Halleck Creek Ranch has helped people live a life without barriers through therapeutic horseback riding. Our facility sits on a beautiful 60 acre ranch in West Marin. We are always looking for handy people who can assist us in caring for our herd and property, doing anything from gardening and paddock maintenance, to tree trimming and construction projects. We are primarily in need of people available on Monday and Friday mornings. If you are interested, please contact Mary Beth at (415) 662-2488 or volunteercoordinator@halleckcreekranch.org.

Mission Statement

We believe that providing challenging experiences in a supportive environment will make a lasting, positive change in the attitudes and abilities of children and adults with disabilities, and in the people who care for them. Through the beneficial activity of therapeutic horseback riding, our participants learn new skills and expand their self-perception, enjoying a sense of freedom from their disabilities. We believe the families benefit from the relaxed atmosphere of the ranch and a valuable chance to network with other families and caregivers. We are committed to providing our program at low or no cost to our participants, so that the therapeutic benefits available through connections with people, animals, and nature are never denied a single individual in need.

Description

Halleck Creek Ranch invites people with disabilities, and their families, to live a "Life without barriers" through the beneficial activity of therapeutic horseback riding. Horseback riding promotes a unique sense of freedom and mobility, allowing riders to imagine the future, and to enjoy the present, in a way they never thought possible. For volunteers, their interactions with the riders teaches them that people with disabilities can do anything they want to, they just have to do it a little differently. The relationships between riders, volunteers, and horses establish connections that benefit our entire community.
