About Gallop for Growth

For 15 years, PALS has been “Making Strides and Changing Lives” in South Central Indiana.  In 2009, PALS recognized that in order to increase the impact of our services for clients and the community, a new facility was needed. With a new facility, we would eliminate our wait list and serve more clients in need of therapeutic riding. We would also be able to provide more comprehensive services like hippotherapy (occupational and physical therapy using a horse), summer camps, and expanded programs to serve populations like veterans, at-risk youth, the elderly, and others who could benefit from the PALS Mission. 

In 2013, the dream of a new facility became a reality. PALS’ new home is located at 7644 W. Elwren Road in Bloomington, IN. he new facility has already allowed current program offerings to grow and services to be provided for new populations from our local community.


  Olimometer 2.52 To support the purchase and renovation of the new facility, PALS launched its Gallop for Growth campaign which seeks to fully fund the new facility and support program expansion for PALS. Through our preliminary efforts and with the support of many, PALS has been able to raise about $500,000 to support the move to our new facility. We are half-way to our goal and need your support to make it to the finish line by March 2018!
