It takes a village. Every rider may need the assistance of up to three volunteers, as well as an instructor and a horse. The continuity of each rider’s team increases the rider’s sense of well-being and confidence. Our volunteers create a sense of community among our participants and are a cornerstone of our programs.


Finnegan, our Irish Sport Horse, supports our program with his willing and even- tempered disposition. In his past life he was used in eventing (which is comprised of Olympic-style equestrian events) and he is still an athlete! He carries riders of all abilities safely around the arena and down the trail.


Various studies have shown equine therapies reduce anxiety, stress, anger and aggression, and depression. Further, equine assisted activities have been demonstrated to improve mood, and to facilitate social interactions, trust and learning. We see the data in action on a daily basis in the smiles on our riders’ faces!

Give Today to the Spring Community Campaign!






Donate Your Own


Please donate today to keep Halleck Creek Ranch thriving!

It is our goal to raise $25,000 during our 2019 Spring Community Campaign.

This campaign will benefit our Breaking Barriers Fund, which subsidizes overall program costs and provides scholarship support to those who otherwise wouldn’t have the means to afford this type of therapy. The need for such funds continues to grow as our programs grow. Tuition payments only cover less than 20% of program costs, and that doesn’t even take into account the valuable time of our volunteers. We need your support to make up this shortfall.

We are dedicated to building our community by offering opportunities to all our participants to develop self-awareness, communication skills, leadership and empathy. Your donation helps us build a dynamic program of service to participants and their families delivered by well—trained instructors and volunteers in concert with our treasured equine teammates. In return, we invite you to join us and see the Halleck Creek community in action at our annual Horse Show on May 18, 2019 from 9am-3pm.

Double down! Our Board of Directors is matching the first $5,000 raised on a dollar- for-dollar basis, making your donation twice as nice.

Will you support us by making a contribution today? On behalf of everyone on the Halleck Creek Ranch Team, thank you.
