Show you Believe in Ability – Sponsor a Ribbon Today!

At GallopNYC we see successes every single day in our riding arena, but once a year we have a special opportunity to celebrate our riders – our annual Ride With Pride Horse Show!  GallopNYC awards each one of our riders a big Blue Championship Ribbon.  This ribbon celebrates each rider’s courage, hard work and infinite abilities. 

Sponsor a Champion Ribbon and show you Believe in Ability!

Here’s what the parent of a rider shared with us:His Ride with Pride Horse Show Blue Ribbon is tremendously valuable as it is a symbol of his success and all his hard work.  The progress he has made with GallopNYC physically, emotionally and socially has carried over into everything else he does.  It’s gratifying to see something he loves so much have such positive impact on his life – and on our lives too.”  Parent

The NEED

Many NYC people need help to live a full, productive life:

  • One in 20 school-age children across the US has a disability
  • In NYC, there are 1.6 million people living with disabilities
  • One in 88 American children has some form of autism spectrum disorder (ASD)

But so few families have the resources to help:

  • 1 in 5 NYC residents is now living in poverty
  • Families of a child with an ASD earned an average of 28% less than those with children with no health limitations

And Insurance and Government resources are not sufficient:

Having an autistic child is estimated to cost a family $10,000 to $50,000 a year in out-of-pocket expenses for medical treatment, therapy, and education.

The NYC Department of Education has reprorted that as many as 40 percent of students in New York City recommended for special-education services may not be getting them.
