For Riders

A day at Halleck Creek Ranch is much more than a therapy session for the riders – it is a healthy form of exercise and recreation that families can enjoy together. Many members feel that they belong to a very special "family" at Halleck Creek Ranch, and consider the ranch another place to call home. The riders have a wide range of developmental, physical and sensory disabilities including: autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, multiple sclerosis, traumatic brain injury, vision/auditory impairments, and more. The youngest rider is 3, and the oldest rider is 65-years old, but 80% of our riders are children between the ages of 3- and 21-years old. Riders and their families visit the ranch from seven Bay Area counties: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, Solano, and Sonoma.
