ORGANIZATION: Halleck Creek Ranch

  • 1 person is interested



In operation since 1977, Halleck Creek Ranch is a pioneer in the field of adaptive horseback riding and groundwork. With two locations in Nicasio (Old Rancheria Road and Rock Rose Ranch), we are looking for active, energetic and caring volunteers to assist with lessons and facility care at both ranches.

The Old Rancheria Road location is open five days a week (Tuesday-Saturday) and the Rock Rose Ranch location is open three days a week (Wednesday-Friday).

No horse experience is required, all training is provided, and learning is encouraged! Our horses are gentle, and volunteers as young as 14 are encouraged to apply (12 years old with a parent for facility work). All volunteers must attend an orientation, complete the required paperwork and participate in on-going training during their period of service.

Please visit our website at: www.halleckcreekranch.org for more information. To apply, please begin our onboarding process by filling out our online application.

Mission Statement

What We Do: 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. We are a member center of the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH). Who We Are: Using gentle horses and a wonderful group of volunteers, Halleck Creek Ranch offers a stimulating and valuable weekly therapy program to children and adults with a wide range of physical and mental disabilities. Riders enjoy the many benefits of therapeutic horseback riding including increased strength, flexibility, coordination and confidence. In addition to a riding lesson in our covered arena, riders enjoy a trail ride through the beautiful Nicasio Valley, creating a unique experience that cannot be duplicated in the arena. Volunteers groom and lead horses, developing valuable horsemanship, interpersonal and leadership skills. There is a comprehensive training program for all new volunteers to learn the unique skills necessary to volunteer. Volunteers and riders gain the opportunity to enjoy the company of peers of all ages in a relaxed outdoor setting. It is often hard to tell who is smiling more, the riders or the volunteers!
