The 2021 LOPE Benefit Horse Show is October 23 →

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


Latest from Facebook

We got an update on Doctoriat from his adopter! She said, "I just wanted you to know that Doctoriat is doing well and getting along nicely with everybody here! The vet came out to do an ultrasound and his tendon is healing up really well. Both the vet and the farrier were very impressed with how laid back he was :) "

Doctoriat retired from the track at age 10 due to a tendon injury. His race owners donated him to LOPE, so he could be rehabbed and adopted to a good home. When he arrived, he was so kind and well-mannered. Plus handsome! We knew he would find a home quickly -- and he did! Congrats to Ashley and Doctoriat for finding each other :) #lopetx #warhorse #ottbs #adoptdontshop
