Our Mission

We give retired warhorses time, attention and purpose.

LOPE is a 501(c)(3) charity that helps at-risk racehorse warriors find new purpose, while inspiring young people through horsemanship education.

What We Do

Core programs

Racing Warrior Program

Racing warriors are admirable athletes who aren’t ready to fade away. Even though they can no longer run fast, they have much to teach us about determination, stoicism, swagger and (most of all) horsemanship. It is a privilege to work with them.
