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


Latest from Facebook

Save the date!! The LOPE Benefit Horse Show will be October 23 at the wonderful Scissortail Hill Equestrian facility! There will be the popular jumping, dressage, eventing and trail classes from previous shows. Plus we are planning some other fun events (like demonstration and maybe even a mini-seminar for spectators). Stayed tuned for more details soon! Sponsorship opportunities will be available for local businesses and OTTB lovers too :) Many thanks to Scissortail Hill Equestrian for being the host and grand sponsor of the LOPE show! Their facility has everything: eventing course, jumping arena, trail course, dressage arena, covered arena and -- most of all -- the friendliest, most supportive riders, show team and trainer ever! ...
