Big Plans for LOPE: Check Out Our Coming of Age Fundraising Campaign →

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


Latest from Facebook

When you lurk under a tree, hoping that your pasture buddy will walk away from his alfalfa long enough for you to steal a bite. Sadly for Oro (the lurking horse), his herd buddy is Flavor - who never ever leaves his alfalfa. Flavor is a foodie and proud member of the dad bod club. Both Oro and Flavor are permanent horses at LOPE. Their job this month is to help introduce new arrival Jet Set Cat to the LOPE lifestyle. And to be petted and admired by visiting fans and media. It’s a tough job, but Oro and Flavor are up for it. #lopetx #ororush #flavor #valued #muchloved #partoftheteam #goodhorses #kindhearts #workfamily ... See MoreSee Less
