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.
