BECOME A VOLUNTEER

Volunteering with GallopNYC is rewarding, exciting, and fun!

Volunteers enjoy helping children and adults learn new skills, while spending time with  horses, one of nature’s most  empathetic animals.

GallopNYC offers therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities and special needs, including Veterans and at risk youth. We serve 350 riders a week and operate our riding program at five locations. Schedules at each location vary seasonally. This fall (2016) we open our own dedicated site at Gemini Stables!  

GallopNYC's Mission

GallopNYC uses therapeutic horsemanship to help riders in NYC with disabilities walk, talk and learn,inspiring them to live their lives as fully, independently and productively as possible.

GallopNYC's Vision

That every child with a disability in New York City has access to therapeutic horseback riding.
