MISSION & PROGRAMS

Mission:
GallopNYCis a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2005. GallopNYC uses therapeutic horse back riding to help people in NYC with disabilities walk, talk and learn, inspiring them to live their lives as fully, independently and productively as possible.

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Services which are in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine Assisted Services (EAS).
Our organization provides community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.
Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of some of the equines involved in our programs and some of the equines in our programs are cared for and sheltered by other organization(s).

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
In 2017, GallopNYC accomplished a first step in our strategic plan, when we acquired two stables to operate exclusively for our programs. This has enabled us to dramatically expand the number of riders we serve and the type of programs.
     
     Our long term plan is to have a full time facility in every borough of NYC. Our next steps will likely be Brooklyn and the Bronx. Shorter term we plan to erect a covered arena at Sunrise Stables in Howard Beach.
     
     For sustainability, in addition to expanding our fundraising efforts, we are building revenue generating programs, including recreational riding and executive coaching.

Equine Assisted Services (EAS):
Our organization provides the following equine assisted services (EAS):
    Therapeutic Mounted Services
    Equine-Assisted Occupational Therapy/Physical Therapy/Speech-Language Pathology
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Personal and/or Professional Development
Not Checked:
    Therapeutic Driving Services
    Therapeutic Vaulting Services
    Therapeutic Unmounted Services
    Equine-Assisted Psychotherapy/Counseling (Mental Health)
    Equine-Assisted Learning involving Academic Learning


Overview of our programs involved with providing EAS to individuals with special needs:
     Our primary programs are Therapeutic Riding programs, serving hundreds of riders a week in peak seasons. These are typically half hour group lessons. Over 50% of our riders have a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. All of our riders are subsidized, as we keep fees below costs, and about 60% have additional fee subsidies. We establish life skills goals for each rider and measure progress towards those goals.
     
     Hippotherapy: One physical therapists with Hipptherapy credentials bring clients to us or work with clients we refer.
     
     We offer extensive Veterans' Programs (Equines for Heroes), including riding and unmounted programs. We launched a special group for women veterans last year, and have developed programs for veterans to bring their children to learn about horses together.
     
     GallopNYC is developing Leadership and Job Skills Programs primarily for people with disabilities but also for broader groups such as teens. These programs are mostly unmounted and use horsemanship skills to help people discover and develop leadership skills, and job skills such as responsibility and problem solving.
     
     Our programs for At Risk Youth are offered in conjunction with agencies serving at risk youth in residential programs. Programs include riding and horsemanship (and barn chores). The agency social workers build life lessons on the horse programs
     
     Our Howard Beach neighborhood is characterized by a high proportion of senior citizens and a low proportion of services for them. In our Seniors' Program, older residents learn horsemanship, enjoy lunch and have an opportunity to volunteer with our TR programs for youngsters. The program has proven to be very popular.

At a time when equestrian sports are under pressure to protect horses while making those sports more accessible, so too must all equine organizations ensure that horses are treated humanely when interacting with people with and without special needs. Our organization takes the following steps to ensure that horses are benefiting from their interactions with people:
     We invest a great deal of time and effort into ensuring that our horses are treated humanely.
     
     We use the methodology of Chris Irwin and work with him and an expert in his methods Emily Commin regularly. The goal of this work is the well being (stress-less life) of our horses.
     
     One key goal is that all of the many people who work with our horses handle them in consistent ways. We teach our riders and volunteers these same techniques.
     
     We have the full panoply of horse care and management, and keep careful track of horse use and behavioral issues, if any. We use our database system (Salesforce) and our team chat tool (Slack) to keep all GallopNYC staff apprised of issues with our horses, such as lameness, or girthy- ness or boredom or souring.
     
     We also rotate horses between our barns so that those in Forest Hills can get more turn out. And we have implemented staff trail rides in FH to give our horses some time with balanced riders in a more relaxed setting.
     
     Hours of use are set for our horses, generally using PATH guidelines but we can mandate less use if needed by a horse.


Community Outreach and/or Public Education:

Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     We see our role as spreading the word about the power of horses to help people.
     
     We have a full collection of social media which we use to inform the public about our programs.
     
     In addition we have specific outreach programs:
     
     We offer a Public Horse Education program, which extends free of charge introductory lessons to the general public a couple of hours each week at both of our park sites when we are in session in the parks.
     
     We also host open houses at the two stables we own, generally twice a year at each, where neighbors are welcomed to our site and offered introductory lessons.
     
     We offer twice yearly Chris Irwin Horsemanship Clinics - these are revenue raisers for us and we charge a fee.
     
     Frequent workshops on TR and horsemanship are open to volunteers free of charge. We offer discounted price riding lessons to volunteers who have logged a set number of hours.
