About our Annual Dinner and Silver Buckle Award

To celebrate our progress and continued journey, our Annual Fundraiser will be held on Friday, September 16, 2022 at Rancho Nicasio Restaurant in Nicasio. Buckles & Bling offers guests an opportunity to socialize with friends, enjoy fine food and wine, and learn more about our mission and accomplishments. An online auction will be held in the weeks prior to the event, as well as two auctions at the event, one silent and one live, offering one-of-a-kind items including travel and adventure, exclusive wines, merchandise, and more. Proceeds from the event support our mission and will help us to expand our programming capacity to serve even more individuals in unique, impactful ways, through equine-assisted services in the gorgeous Nicasio countryside. 

This year, we are excited to honor Joyce Goldfield with our Silver Buckle Award. Joyce co-founded Halleck Creek Ranch (HCR) alongside Duane Irving in 1977.

Joyce was volunteering at the Morgan Horse Ranch where Duane was the trainer. Joyce was bucked off a horse, shattered her shoulder, and was confined to a full body case for 5 months. She and Duane commiserated on the horrors of being thus confined, and from their conversations, the idea for starting a riding program for disabled children was born.

Join us as Joyce shares her wisdom, empathy, and tales from her lifelong efforts as an ally for those in need of a little extra love and support.


About Halleck Creek Ranch

For 45 years, HCR has improved the lives of people with disabilities through therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-assisted activities. Using interaction between horses and humans as a conduit for physical, emotional and mental development, our programs promote independence, self-esteem, problem solving skills, and the development of social and life skills in a supportive environment.

Located on a 60-acre ranch, our program pairs gentle horses with trained staff and volunteers, and amid breathtaking landscapes we promote a "life without barriers." As a non-profit, we rely on the support of our community to enable us to offer our services to the broadest group of people possible.
