Current Volunteers

We are currently riding on a limited basis. The spring riding session takes place March 16th – June 20th and we ride Tuesday-Sunday indoors at GallopNYC Forest Hills and outdoors as weather permits at GallopNYC Lindenwood (Sunrise Stables), the Bronx Equestrian Center and Prospect Park. Schedules vary by location and a heads up that our volunteer process has recently changed. As COVID-19 restrictions are beginning to be lifted we are cautiously welcoming more volunteer support on-site. This includes a few therapeutic lesson support roles that are suited for less experienced or inexperienced volunteers 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.

All volunteer shifts are by approval only. For approval please email us at volunteer@gallopnyc.org and share your level of horse knowledge, including whether you believe you have the skill-set needed to lead-walk a horse during our therapeutic riding lessons and tack up horses to prepare for lessons. Based on your level of experience we will share options to get you started. Thank you in advance for understanding.
