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.
Ride with Pride Horse Show
This year, our Ride with Pride Horse Show will take place over two days. Many of our riders will be able to participate!
On Saturday and Sunday June 22-23, our riders will “Ride with Pride” in Bowling Green, Prospect Park and at GallopNYC Sunrise Stables at our official Horse Show event. Riders will demonstrate their progress and the skills they have mastered through GallopNYC’s weekly therapeutic riding lessons. It will be a fun-filled day of games and celebration to honor our riders and volunteers. All Horse Show participants receive Championship Ribbons at the show, and riders who do not attend the show receive them from their proud instructors on the last day of classes.
Show You Believe in Ability
With a gift of $50 or more we will include a congratulatory message from you to our riders in our Horse Show program. Please include that message with your donation by May 30th.
As a Ribbon Sponsor you will be honoring every single one of our riders and supporting GallopNYC’s program.
Your gift helps makes a difference in the life of a New Yorker with disabilities. We see breakthroughs every day in our program. A child labeled as non-verbal speaks his first words, a young person develops sufficient leg strength to walk independently, an at-risk teenager develops the courage to apply for her first job. These and other victories transfer to our riders in lasting and meaningful ways.
GallopNYC has a special commitment to serving low- and middle-income families, and with your help we make the benefits of therapeutic riding available to those most in need. All our riders benefit from reduced fees, and many pay no fees or substantially reduced fees as part of GallopNYC’s commitment to make therapeutic riding accessible to all. Your gift will help us offer lessons to as many riders as we can.
“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. As a parent of a child with a disability, it’s gratifying to see something he loves so much have such positive impact on his life – and on our lives too.” Parent
