LOPE helps at-risk racehorses find second careers, while inspiring young people through horsemanship education.


Latest from Facebook

Flavor is our permanent rehab horse babysitter and herd boss. He has many old sports injuries from his long racing career. Because of that, Flavor is retired from riding. But we noticed he was getting sad watching his herd buddies get worked in the round pen. So we brought him up this morning to do some simple ground work. What is so incredibly endearing about Flavor is that he LOVES to be saddled! He feels very important with tack on. So we saddle him at the end of the session - as his reward for well done ground work. Lynn led him around the round pen, as if he was in the saddling paddock at the track again. Then Daelynn took his “win” photo. Flavor strutted back to his pasture like he just won the Derby. #flavor #ottb #warhorse #supercute #muchloved #bigheart #workethic #sweetguy
