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


Latest from Facebook

Shadow Warrior just arrived at LOPE - all the way from Puerto Rico!! He is munching on alfalfa in the barn -- and is getting to know Flavor (who is in the stall next door to him). Shadow is such a survivor!! He became at risk in Puerto Rice due to the devastation of Hurricane Maria there. Shadow is a true racing warrior! He won over $100K in 83 races -- and just retired from racing at age 9! HUGE thanks to Caribbean Thoroughbred Aftercare Inc. for helping Shadow (and so many other PR ex-racehorses)!! We'd also like to thank Karen and Randy Hickman for fostering Shadow in FL after his long trip from PR. Finally, kudos to Equine Express,NA INC for delivering Shadow to LOPE -- they made sure he had a good trip for the last leg of his long journey here! ... See MoreSee Less
