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. 


Latest on Procedures Related to COVID-19

As tighter state wide restrictions have been implemented to combat the spread of COVID- 19, GallopNYC strives to observe socially responsible practices and follow all orders issued by state and city leadership. As a result all lessons and non-essential activity, including all on site volunteer activity, are suspended effective immediately. Thank you to everyone who volunteered during the short period of private lessons and thank you to everyone who made the decision to stay home to protect others. 

During this period of suspended activity we’ll pivot to providing opportunities for you to engage with the GallopNYC community from the safety and comfort of your home, starting right now!

Share photos, videos, art or anything that reminds you of your favorite GallopNYC moments. 

Donate-- Now more than ever we're appreciative of those that are able and willing to support us financially, ensuring that we'll be able to return with impactful programming for our riders.

We’re all experiencing an extraordinary time in our lives right now but I genuinely believe in the power of staying connected to caring communities like the one you’ve helped foster at GallopNYC. 

Please feel free to reach out with any questions, suggestions or concerns. 

Looking forward to connecting virtually,
