Review for Giving Alternative Learners Uplifting Opportunities Inc, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Watching what happens when a child, with or without disabilities, gets on a horse for a GallopNYC session is life-transforming, both for the child and for you. GallopNYC is doing phenomenal work with some of the most difficult to treat populations, among them those with autism, developmental disorders, brain injury, emotional trauma, etc. It's hard not to get choked up when you see a rider's uncertainty and apprehension turn into joy and pride at sitting tall on a powerful creature. GallopNYC's strength is its leadership, staff, instructors and volunteers -- they are kind, enthusiastic, careful, patient, dedicated, skillful, effective, and so happy to be helping. It is a profoundly moving and rewarding thing to witness.
