We have the HORSEPOWER to change the lives of New Yorkers with disabilities and special needs.

Welcome to GallopNYC!

How It Works

Therapeutic horsemanship uses the pleasures and skills of horseback riding and horse knowledge to build developmental, emotional, social, and physical skills for each individual rider.

Under the direction of a PATH International certified instructor, supported by trained volunteers, each rider progressively acquires riding skills and measurable improvements in life skills. Through weekly sessions, we help riders walk, talk, learn, and have FUN! We also offer hippotherapy services.

Therapeutic horsemanship means learning to ride a horse. But it means much more – it means building a bond with a horse, learning to care for a horse, understanding how horses perceive the world and respond to people, and being a leader to a horse.
