A fun relaxed schooling show to raise funds and awareness for Austin's own L.O.P.E. Texas racehorse rescue. Enjoy our wide variety of classes spread over our beautiful 50 acre property with all proceeds (minus the office fee) going directly to help care for the rescue and war horses at LOPE. Click here to learn more about LOPE and their wonderful programs and horses.
