Our youth leadership program, developed for young people with disabilities, teaches important leadership skills such as empathy, responsibility, and goal setting. As a true believer in the power of horsemanship, we are thankful to honor Soledad O’Brien at the Barn Dance this year. Soledad is best known for her work as a broadcaster and journalist, hosting her Hearst syndicated show, “Matter of Fact with Soledad O’Brien” since 2016.

Charles Boyce, President of Boyce Technologies, is a longtime supporter of GallopNYC and this year’s honoree. Honorees for the GallopNYC Rider Award, the Believe in Ability Volunteer Award, and the Educator Award will be revealed at this year’s Barn Dance.

Volunteer in Lessons

Volunteers play a very important role in our therapeutic riding lessons. In fact, we can’t have lessons without you. Volunteers support our riders during therapeutic riding sessions by sidewalking with riders and leading our horses.

Barn Work

Taking care of horses sure is a lot of work! We need volunteers to help us with all kinds of tasks from horse care, barn management, feeding, and even cleaning stalls. 

Site Leader

As a Site Leader, you will assist instructors to ensure that on-site activities operate smoothly, especially with regards to volunteers, riders, staff, and any other on-site personnel. 

Paddock Master

Make a difference and help our lessons run better. Paddock Masters volunteers are designated to assist instructors during therapeutic riding sessions by ensuring horses are tacked and ready for use, and all necessary equipment is available to allow lessons to proceed in a timely fashion.

Clerical Volunteer

Like to stay indoors? We need volunteers to help GallopNYC staff with office work and to ensure that on-site activities operate smoothly, especially with regards to volunteers, riders, and any other on-site personnel.


Volunteer Community

Become a member of GallopNYC’s volunteer community – The Turnout! The Turnout is a social club for volunteers to connect with one another through hands on experience, learning and good times. Deepen your therapeutic riding and horse knowledge, and stay abreast of all the volunteer events!

Therapeutic Riding

GallopNYC brings the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to provide measurable benefits for people with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges.  Through weekly riding sessions with PATH-certified instructors, we help riders learn new skills, inspiring each one to live life as fully, productively and independently as possible.

Veterans

GallopNYC provides horsemanship leadership programs to veterans free of charge. Therapeutic horsemanship is effective with veterans for both physical and emotional rehabilitation. GallopNYC’s therapeutic horsemanship program for veterans focuses on interactions with horses and builds upon improving personal decision-making and self-regulation.

Seniors

GallopNYC offers a free program for local seniors, 65 and older. Participants have the opportunity to socialize, mingle, learn new skills, work with our horses, and volunteer with our riders.  This program focuses on groundwork and techniques in leadwalking and sidewalking, to better assist our riders during therapeutic riding lessons.

Hippotherapy

In Hippotherapy, a licensed physical therapist works with each child while the child is riding. The therapist is trained in using a horse as a physical therapy tool. The therapists work independently with GallopNYC’s assistance.

Leadership

GallopNYC has developed an innovative program to help young people transition to work, by developing specific job skills needed for gainful employment.


Equestrian Team

The GallopNYC Equestrian Team sponsored by Centennial Bank is a group of our advanced riders who participate in competitions for riders with disabilities at United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) rated hunter jumper shows.
