“We were introduced to Halleck Creek Ranch as a therapy resource for our son, Chase. We had heard from other special needs families about all the wonderful things they do to help people with varying challenges, so we were excited to see what it was all about.

As parents, we want our children to be the best they can be, however finding places where they could feel successful and confident are difficult to find. From the start, you can see how the entire Halleck Creek Ranch team is truly invested and believes in providing children and adults with disabilities the ability to enjoy a “life without barriers”.  Their knowledgeable and caring instructors and volunteers create a safe and welcoming environment for riders at every level to learn and enjoy these gentle giants.  It really is magical to see the riders truly “connect” with the sweet therapy horses as they ride through the beautiful trails at the ranch.

Halleck Creek has made such a dramatic and positive change in our son and it is amazing to see such growth in his confidence and self esteem. Chase leaves his sessions feeling calm, happy and genuinely proud of himself. We are grateful to have found this therapeutic riding program, especially Ms. Robyn and Buck, and are lucky to be a part of the HCR community.

Thank you Halleck Creek Ranch!”

“Halleck Creek Ranch has always been a fantastic resource for our son, who has long enjoyed riding horses, attending camp, and generally helping out “around the farm” there. Today, it is even more important for him, as it is one of very few activities in which we are comfortable having him participate in person these days. It has been great to watch him learn about grooming the horses, making food for them, and working with them under the guidance of such wonderful Halleck Creek volunteers. Moreover, we have watched him grow in independence and confidence during his Halleck Creek program. He loves Halleck Creek, and we love all that it offers him!”
