A Statement Addressing Racism
from the HCR Board of Directors

Along with so many others, Halleck Creek Ranch was stunned and troubled by the recent brutal and callous killings and incidents of violence against Black people. These events have exposed the ugliness of systemic and institutionalized racism across our nation. Halleck Creek Ranch supports the efforts of the many organizations working toward real and lasting change in our country, in our county, and in our communities. We encourage and support looking deeply within ourselves at racial justice and racism in order to determine actions each of us can take to create more open, inclusive and diverse communities.

Halleck Creek Ranch is well aware of how discrimination can be hurtful and harmful. HCR is dedicated to enriching the lives and experiences of our program participants through therapeutic horseback riding and other equine associated activities. Our mission is to help our riders mitigate and reconcile the significant neurological, emotional and/or medical conditions they live with that create barriers precluding them from enjoying nature and the quiet soulfulness and rhythm of horses moving in an arena or on a trail. The employees and volunteers who we rely on to provide our programs work diligently to create an open and inclusive community and an atmosphere where all are welcome.

We also realize that we need to do internal work, both within ourselves and within our organization, to address discrimination, bias and racism so we can ensure that we are living the values that foster equity, openness and diversity. We are openly addressing issues of bias and racism in how we function as an organization.

We are committed to reaching out to providing our services to an even broader community, and to adhering to the values of openness and diversity every day.

We will keep our Halleck Creek Ranch community apprised of our actions and progress.

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.
