GallopNYC offers therapeutic horsemanship programs to children and adults with disabilities and special needs, including Veterans and at risk youth. We serve 350 riders a week and operate our riding program at five locations.
Schedules at each location vary seasonally. This fall (2016) we open our own dedicated site at Gemini Stables!
GallopNYC brings the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to provide measurable benefits for people with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges. Through weekly riding sessions with PATH-certified instructors, we help riders learn new skills, inspiring each one to live life as fully, productively and independently as possible. GallopNYC serves hundreds of riders every week at six NYC locations. GallopNYC is committed to serving low-income families, since they are more likely to lack access to adequate services.
In Hippotherapy, a licensed physical therapist works with each child while the child is riding. The therapist is trained in using a horse as a physical therapy tool. The therapists work independently with GallopNYC’s assistance.
