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 now expanding the program to create what hasn’t been created on the east coast – a school on the same grounds as an equestrian center!
