Nature and Purpose of Agency 

 

GallopNYC uses therapeutic horsemanship to help riders in NYC with disabilities walk, talk and learn; inspiring them to live their lives as fully, independently and productively as possible. GallopNYC's vision is that every child with a disability in New York City has access to therapeutic horseback riding.

o    Walk (and jog) next to the rider throughout the class and provide physical support as necessary
