UPDATED: August 10, 2022
GallopNYC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization which offers therapeutic horseback riding programs at sites located in Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, and the Bronx. GallopNYC uses therapeutic horsemanship to help riders in NYC with disabilities walk, talk, and learn, inspiring them to live their lives as fully, independently, and productively as possible.
The organization serves children, adults, seniors, and military veterans with chronic conditions or disabilities such as autism spectrum disorders, M.S, cerebral palsy, PTSD and more. Through forming meaningful bonds with horses and participating in the Therapeutic Riding Program, riders with disabilities are able to reach their individualized goals, improve valuable life skills such as confidence and concentration, and be a part of a supportive community of riders, their families, riding instructors, and volunteers.
