Connecting with Nature…

Learning from Horses

Gallop Adventures, located in Woodside, CA, is a non profit organization providing a variety of Nature Based Therapies and specializing in Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. Gallop serves youth from around the Bay Area. Our team of mental health professionals work with children and their families to heal trauma and address other mental, emotional and behavioral challenges, including anxiety and depression.


Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) is an alternative to traditional talk therapy. It involves natural interactions with horses for personal growth and healing. EAP is appropriate for the healing of trauma, depression, anxiety, addiction and many other mental, emotional, behavioral and spiritual needs.



Nature provides us with valuable insight and reflection. It helps us to unplug, slow our pace, restore our energy and find balance. Come and experience our Therapeutic Hiking opportunities and our Nature Meditations.
