Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

How does a big city office worker become a rural Texas savior of retired racehorses? This wild ride of a read takes armchair adventurers behind the scenes of horseracing gorgeous, quirky horses, colorful jockeys and trainers, gallop girls while depicting the unexpected life lessons animals can offer. In 2002, drawn by a childhood dream, Reardon quit her Washington, D.C. job and moved across country and cultures to open the racehorse adoption ranch LOPE that has now saved hundreds of retired racehorses and washed-up Thoroughbreds from slaughter (and worse). The distinct personalities of horses like Tawakoni, the son of a Kentucky Derby winner, and Endofthestorm, the speedy bay who required an emergency tracheotomy, give Reardon an unforgettable apprenticeship in facing fear and finding a new life.

Synopsis:

After learning to ride horses as an adult, Lynn Reardon quit her office job in Washington DC and moved to rural Texas to open the racehorse adoption ranch LOPE (LoneStar Outreach to Place Ex-Racers). Since then, LOPE has helped transition more than 750 thoroughbreds into new homes. In this riveting account, Reardon encounters dozens of unruly racehorses, all with special needs, unusual histories, and distinct personalities. She takes readers for a thrilling ride through the horse-racing world filled with offbeat horse people, colorful Texas culture clashes, veterinary melodramas, and surprising life lessons. Reardon may have saved these horses lives, but they saved hers as well.
