Between Aqueduct Race Track and two branches of the GallopNYC riding stables, state Sen. Joe Addabbo Jr. (D-Howard Beach), right, can fairly claim his district is just as horse-oriented as those of upstate lawmakers.

Last week, Addabbo dropped in on the Howard Beach stables of GallopNYC on Linden Boulevard, where the group specializes in therapeutic horseback riding for the disabled, seniors and veterans with support from the state.

“Seeing someone who is in a wheelchair get up on the back of a horse and trot around the field is awe-inspiring,” he said.
