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


Latest from Facebook

Mystery Blessing (on the left) is in the house! She arrived yesterday afternoon. We will give her a couple days to settle in. Mystery already seems to feel very at home here. She made immediate friends with her new herd buddies and has been enjoying the alfalfa buffet lol. We really appreciate all the interest in her! She will be assessed early next week. If you would like more info on how to become approved as a LOPE adopter, please DM us. Mystery is 13 yo @16.1H TB mare. She has several years experience as a lesson and camp horse for junior riders. An old suspensory injury (from when she was 4 yo) limits her to flat work (no jumping). She was adopted from LOPE in 2013 by a wonderful camp program. Sadly due to financial strain from covid, the camp had to close its equine division. She is returning to LOPE to find a new home. Welcome back, Mystery Blessing! #lopetx #mysteryblessing #ottb #sensiblegirl #kindheart ... See MoreSee Less
