Why help our riders? 

GallopNYC focuses its services primarily on low-income children and adults with disabilities, at a time when the level of need in the New York metropolitan area is high and steadily growing. Your donations help cover the costs of needy riders.

Every gift goes directly to provide lessons to children who never have the opportunity to ride without your help.  

"My daughter looks forward to lessons every week and is so sad to leave.  That alone says that GallopNYC has a tremendous impact on her confidence and willingness to be independent.  She has become some much stronger,  far more than any other activities."


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.
