Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
GallopNYC, also known as Giving Alternative Learners Uplifting Opportunities, Inc. is 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.


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses and also uses horses to provide our services that are cared for and sheltered by another organization(s).

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.


Volunteer Opportunities


Therapeutic Riding Volunteers Needed In NY City
Minimum Age: 16
GallopNYC is a New York City-based nonprofit organization that offers therapeutic riding lessons to people with disabilities. We operate our riding program at four locations - GallopNYC Sunrise Stables,Howard Beach, Queens; Prospect Park, Brooklyn; GallopNYC Forest Hills, Queens; and Bronx Equestrian Center in The Bronx.

See http://volunteer.gallopnyc.org/

We need volunteers to lead horses and escort our riders. No prior experience with horses or in therapeutic riding is necessary.

GallopNYC bases its program on good horsemanship, sound riding principles, and therapeutic riding and hippotherapy standards that are approved by PATH Int'l (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International).

Lessons are taught by a riding instructor certified by PATH Int'l and supported by licensed physical therapists, as well as a dedicated and experienced group of volunteers. The program offers a safe and supportive environment in which an individual can reap the many benefits of therapeutic riding.

Lessons are offered every day.

GallopNYC's herd of 29 horses and ponies is housed at GallopNYC Forest Hills and GallopNYC Sunrise Stables. VOlunteers help with barn chores, grooming, turn out, lunging, and after passing a riding assessment, exercising our horses.
