Mission Statement

Gain personal satisfaction of helping children and adults with developmental, emotional, social and physical challenges. Volunteers lead horses and escort our riders. No prior experience with horses or in therapeutic riding is necessary. You will be provided with the information required before we begin the lessons.

GallopNYC is a non-profit organization based in New York City that offers therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities. We serve 300 riders a week and operate our riding program at four main locations. Schedules at each location vary seasonally.

Therapeutic horsemanship uses the pleasures and skills of horseback riding and horse knowledge to build developmental, emotional, social, and physical skills for each individual rider.

Under the direction of a PATH International certified instructor, supported by trained volunteers, each rider progressively acquires riding skills and measurable improvements in life skills. Through weekly sessions, we help riders walk, talk, connect, focus, behave, learn, and have FUN!
