“The different programs they provide and the work they do with our veterans and seniors are a blessing for the community,” Sen. Addabbo (r.) said of GallopNYC
By Forum Staff State Sen. Joe Addabbo, Jr. (D-Howard Beach) said he recently visited GallopNYC’s Sunrise Stables in Howard Beach to see firsthand the work they do with their therapeutic riding program. Located at 80-98 Linden Blvd., Sunrise Stables provides limited public riding les-
sons as part of their horse education curriculum; but, perhaps more importantly, they feature programming that uses the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship to provide both children and adults with developmental, emotional, social, and physical disabilities a unique way to handle their disability while teaching them new skills. GallopNYC also offers free programs for veterans and local seniors. During his visit, Addabbo noted that he and the GallopNYC staff discussed the different initiatives they offer at Sunrise Stables and GallopNYC’s other New York locations, as well as ways to improve their space and bring their services to more people. “GallopNYC has two locations in my district—Howard Beach and Forest Hills—and I am proud to have them,” Addabbo said. “The different programs they provide and the work they do with our veterans and seniors are a blessing for the community. Seeing someone who is in a wheelchair get up on the back of a horse and trot around the field is awe-inspiring. I am happy to be able to work with their staff and help provide them the funding they need to continue assisting the community. I encourage those interested in getting involved with this amazing organization to volunteer.” For more information about getting involved at GallopNYC as a rider, donor, or volunteer, visit gallopnyc.org, email info@ gallopnyc.org, or call (646) 233-4507.
