RockRose Ranch, a 120-acre horse ranch in Nicasio, was gifted to Halleck Creek Ranch from Maja Kristin, a longtime horsewoman, impact philanthropist, attorney, and Halleck Creek Ranch donor. This additional property will allow Halleck Creek Ranch to expand its programming, serve more riders and families, and inspire new collaborations with the larger Bay Area nonprofit community.
“Maja makes a difference for people and communities worldwide. Her lifework underscores a passion for bridging differences, engaging in creative problem solving, and inspiring philanthropy to support worthwhile causes,” said Molly Scanell, HCR executive director. “This gift will positively impact the lives of the individuals we currently serve, and so many more, as we are able to broaden our services and expand our reach as a direct result of receiving this new operations site. For this, we are forever grateful.”
RockRose Ranch has been used as an equestrian training and boarding facility. The property features two barns, multiple paddocks, pastures and five miles of private riding trails in the hills and redwood forests of West Marin. There is both a large main house and guest house with the potential to be used as a community center, staff offices, and spaces for volunteer trainings and nonprofit events. This site is not yet open to the public but there will be planned opportunities to visit the ranch in the coming months. For more information, visit halleckcreekranch.org.
