Current Volunteers

We ride Tuesday-Sunday indoors at GallopNYC Forest Hills and outdoors as weather permits at GallopNYC Lindenwood (Sunrise Stables), Prospect Park and the Bronx Equestrian Center. Schedules vary seasonally, by location. Please be aware that our volunteer process changed in Fall 2020 so if you’re returning for the first time managing your volunteer account will look a little different.

As COVID-19 restrictions are beginning to be lifted we are cautiously welcoming more volunteer support on-site. This includes therapeutic lesson support roles that are well suited for new volunteers becoming familiar with therapeutic riding and/or GallopNYC, like side-walking. As these roles require close contact we recommend vaccinated volunteers. The health and safety of our community is very important to us and we appreciate your understanding and patience as we increase capacity safely.
