Town Meeting Pavilion, Town Hall Plaza

Join us at this meeting to help get us approved for a one-of-a-kind classroom for students on the autism spectrum built on the campus of the New York Equestrian Center! Your presence at this meeting is critical in making this dream a reality!

Gersh Academy Equine Program

Over the last several years we have been teaming up with the New York Equestrian Center offering our Gersh Academy Student’s Equine Assisted programs. We have seen such amazing strides in our students that we are looking to grow the program, create what hasn’t been created on the east coast – a school on the same grounds as an equestrian center!

We need your help!

On February 28th we are going before the Town of Hempstead for approval to build out classrooms at the New York Equestrian Center. This will be an extension of our West Hempstead location, allowing us to help more children.

We need your support to make this happen. We are asking you to join us at the town meeting by 2:00 pm. If you are in a working at that time, you may join the meeting as soon as you can. It is through the support of our community that we can make this happen!
