Buy the Book

A portion of proceeds from the sale of each copy of Beyond the Homestretch sold will directly support LOPE’s mission of providing Texas ex-racehorses with opportunities for new careers after their racing days end. Beyond the Homestretch tells the stories of many memorable LOPE horses and what they taught author and LOPE executive director, Lynn Reardon. Order from Amazon or Learn more about the book.

Buy the DVD

All proceeds from the sale of each DVD of Retraining Racehorses sold from our website will directly support LOPE’s mission of helping Texas racehorses. Retraining Racehorses features horseman and clinician Tom Curtin working with several LOPE racehorses to demonstrate retraining techniques for post-track success.

Sponsor a Horse

If you would like to sponsor one of the horses at the LOPE ranch, your gift or financial donation will be applied toward the specific care and training of the horse you specify. Check out the current LOPE Ranch horses available for adoption. Gifts of grooming brushes, halters, vet supplies and other items are also deeply appreciated by the LOPE horses as they wait for new homes!


If you would like to volunteer, please email LOPE and let us know where you are located and what type of volunteer work you are interested in. We especially need help with horse transport, helping with events and fundraising.
