USD 2017: GallopNYC (Forest Hills, Queens)


GallopNYC brings the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to children and adults with disabilities in NYC. Through weekly riding sessions with PATH-certified instructors, we help riders walk, talk, connect, focus, behave, and learn, encouraging each one to live life as fully, productively, and independently as possible.

USD volunteers will assist with horsemanship classes to support riders through side walking, site maintenance and basic horse care.  Please bring sunscreen, a hat and a refillable water bottle.
