About Volunteering

When you volunteer with GallopNYC, you are able to enjoy the personal satisfaction of helping children and adults with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges, all while working with and being around horses, one of nature’s most empathetic animals.

Each of our riders is supported by one to three volunteers - a "lead walker" and up to two "side walkers". 

You do not have to have any horse expereince - we will teach you everything you need to know.

We ask the volunteer committ to two hours of volunteer service a week, and prefer that volunteers keep the same shift each week. The bond that builds between volunteers, horses, and riders is strong!
