Join us in-person at our 2022 GallopNYC Barn Dance to bid on this early opportunity to join the 2023 Central Park Promenade!
You will join GallopNYC riders, dressed to the nines and mounted on impeccably groomed horses, and will enjoy a promenade through NYC's Central Park.

This exclusive breeding opportunity is only available in-person at our 2022 GallopNYC Barn Dance.
Rox Du Landor aka "Brightside" is a rare palomino Zangersheide stallion. 16.2hh, with an unflappable hunter demeanor, incredible movement, scope and perfect square-kneed jump. Impeccably well bred, with the famed Balou du Rouet, Baloubette and Cor de la BryŤre on his sire side, and roots back to Landgraf himself on his dam side, his pedigree is only matched by his looks.
The opportunity to carry on Brightside's legacy is extremely rare: he was gelded following breeding collection. Once his frozen doses are gone, they're gone.

A unique opportunity to personally train your mind with the founders of Imagery Coaching, Joanna Grover, LCSW, and Dr Jonathan Rhodes. Imagery Coaching bridges the gap between what is and what is possible by teaching you techniques to improve your imagination. Backed by twenty years of research, the program is grounded in science and tailored to the unique realities of you. You adapting. You achieving. You persisting. You, amplified.
Your journey begins with a one-of-a-kind assessment for motivation and imagination. Once completed, a 6-month program will be curated to meet your goal(s). You will join an elite group of high-performance individuals who know how to use Functional Imagery Training (FIT) to break down mental walls and achieve success.
Joanna Grover, LCSW, is an executive coach with nineteen years of experience as a cognitive behavioral therapist specializing in anxiety. She first encountered FIT when it helped her recover from a horse-riding accident. After witnessing first-hand, the effectiveness of this strategy in a client's weight loss journey, she felt even more committed to the work. She subsequently became the first person in the US to be certified in FIT. Since 2019, Jo has used FIT mainly in an individual context, where she's worked with top leaders at the US Department of Commerce, Olympic athletes, and C-suite executions at corporations such as Citi, IBM, and KPMG. She is a board-certified coach and member of the International Coaching Federation and the Harvard Institute of Coaching. Joanna lives in Miami, FL
Jonathan Rhodes, PhD, is a Chartered Psychologist (British Psychological Society) and a published researcher and lecturer specializing in cognitive psychology. After working with athletes at the 2012 Olympic Games, Jonathan decided to research strategies that change mindset, train individual and cultural resilience, and enhance performance. Ten years later, Jonathan concluded that imagery is the most effective route to achieving goals for individuals and teams. To reach this conclusion, Jonathan helped develop FIT by teaching individuals how to master their imagination, subsequently raising performance levels of athletes who went on to compete at the Olympic Games, in Premiership football and rugby, and with a multitude of athletes competing in other sports such as with Red Bull Cliff Divers, and America's Cup sailors. In 2019, Jonathan partnered with the British Army to develop the British Army Commando Resilience Training Program, which has increased recruits passing the All-Arms Commando Course by 44 percent. He lives in Plymouth, UK.

Add some POWER in your home with this stunning one-of-a-kind Joseph Piccillo painting of "Two Horses" in motion.
#11 (06) Two Horses horizontal
72x96inches (graphite on canvas)
Joe Piccillo is an artist who creates artworks that are extraordinarily powerful. As a skilled draftsman, he uses charcoal and graphite to draw anything he chooses, but what he prefers, as one of his famous subjects are horses in motion. His technique of applying drawing materials is in stark contract with the black and white style he uses. It is captivating and feels powerful like the horse is going to leap out toward you as it looks so real.
When you look at a drawing of a horse you know it is Joe's because the artwork has a distinct character, the horse commands the canvas and bursts off the page. Joe Piccillo was born in 1937 in Buffalo, New York. He went to college at State University and graduated with an Art Education degree. He taught many years at SUNY Buffalo State. Joe's artwork
is extremely collectible. His work is in museum collections all over the world including Buffalo at the Burchfield Penney Art Center and at the AKG Art Museum and in NYC at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Museum of Modern Art. Corporations collect his artwork too including Coca Cola, Guess? Jeans, General Mills, and American Express.
Redemption: The winner must collect this painting from Miami, Florida or cover shipping.
