We cannot do it without you
GallopNYC relies on our volunteers
Volunteering with GallopNYC is one of the most rewarding, exciting, and fun activities in NYC!
Volunteers are able to experience the personal satisfaction of helping children and adults with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges, all while working with and being around horses, one of nature’s most sympathetic and empathetic animals.

- Each rider is supported by up to three volunteers – one leading the horse and one on each side of the rider.
- NO EXPERIENCE is NEEDED. We provide training.
- A love of horses is helpful, as is a desire to work with individuals with a disability.
” I marvel to see how much people are capable of when no one puts limits on their expectations.”
What happens now?
Your first step is to create your account. You will then be asked to complete an online orientation, and then you will be given the chance to complete an on-site orientation. After orientation, you’re free to find a volunteer opportunity that fits your schedule and sign up!
We ask volunteers to commit to two hours of service a week.
