The Story

EVENT DATE: May 01, 2016

DEADLINE TO GIVE: Apr 30, 2016

GallopNYC brings the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to children and adults with disabilities in NYC. Therapeutic horseback riding provides measurable benefits for people with developmental, emotional, social, and physical challenges. Through weekly riding sessions with PATH-certified instructors, we help riders walk, talk,  and learn, inspiring each one to live life as fully, productively and independently as possible. Gallop NYC serves over 350 riders every week at four NYC locations.

 

But we still have more to do! Demand for our services has grown and we currently have over 300 riders on our waiting list. We offer our services free or low-cost to help some of New York City's most vulnerable populations. With your help  we can offer our uniquely effective program to more riders.  

 

Our bike riders have generously agreed to ride in TD Bank's Five Boro Bike Tour to raise funds for GallopNYC. Please help them reach our goal —together we can move riders off our growing waitlist and into the saddle!
