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. 

Fall '18 Volunteer Shifts

Please join us at one (or more!) of these volunteer shifts. 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!
