Find a volunteer opportunity


Welcome to GallopNYC! 

GallopNYC is a non-profit organization based in New York City that offers therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities. We serve 500 riders a week and operate our riding program at four locations. Two of the locations are operated by GallopNYC primarily for therapeutic programs.  Schedules at each location vary seasonally. 

Winter '20 Volunteer Shifts

Please join us at one (or more!) of these volunteer shifts. Our winter term will run for ten weeks and we strongly encourage our volunteers to return for the same shift for at least half the term (5 weeks) and ideally for the full term (10 weeks). Our riders and our horses get to know our volunteers, and the benefit of therapeutic riding is enhanced when the same volunteers are working week over week. That's why we love to have repeat volunteers!

Also, in an effort to continue to improve the quality of lessons we provide all volunteer shifts will begin 30 minutes before the start of lessons. This way we have more time to dedicate to training volunteers, warming up horses and communicating the lesson for the day. We appreciate all the cooperation and support of our improvement efforts.
