Halleck Creek Ranch owns a sixty acre parcel of land in the picturesque Nicasio Valley, 10 miles west of San Rafael in Marin County. Our facility is wheelchair accessible and designed to meet the needs of our all of our riders.
To help our riders to mount their horse, we have a set of mounting ramps and a mounting block. The ramps bring each rider level with the back of the horse. This gives riders who use a wheelchair or walker for mobility, or who may have compromised balance, the support and assistance necessary to mount the horse safely. The mounting block is used for riders with greater strength and mobility, and develops coordination and independence.
Halleck Creek Ranch has an 80' x 120' covered riding arena with sand footing for lessons and warm up exercises. The arena also provides a protected and safe riding area when the weather is overly hot, wet, or cold.
In addition to the property, Halleck Creek Ranch has a deeded riding easement on an adjoining 280-acre property. This allows riders to enjoy all of the beautiful sights, sounds, smells, and undulating terrain of a real trail ride. There is wildlife to be spotted on the trail, creek beds to traverse, hills to climb and descend, and native plants to smell. The experience is authentic and exciting, and completely unique to Halleck Creek Ranch.
