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


Latest from Facebook

When you want to help your farrier with his job, but you don’t have opposable thumbs. Oro Rush is a LOPE permanent horse and seasoned intern instructor. He has the mischievous personality of a baby goat (only taller and more handsome). Oro loves to be the center of attention! He also has a kind heart and sweet nature under his prankster exterior. We love Oro! He makes everyone (especially Joe the farrier) laugh. #ororush #lopetx #ottb #teacher #friend #goodhorse #internslovehim #happyguy ... See MoreSee Less
