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.

About the Author:

Lynn Reardon is the founder and executive director of LoneStar Outreach to Place Ex-Racers (LOPE Texas), a nonprofit racehorse placement agency near Austin, Texas. Prior to founding LOPE, Lynn worked in nonprofit finance and administrative management in the Washington DC–area for too many years. Lynn lives on the LOPE ranch with her husband, Sophie the dog, multiple cats, and a herd of ex-racehorses up for adoption. Lynn has adopted three LOPE horses of her own: Tulsa Mambo, Sally, and Lightening Ball.

Review:

Terrific tales of second chances that will lift your heart with joy.”
Susan Richards, author of Chosen by a Horse

This is a book for anyone who truly wants to change their life and live their dream.”
Leslie Guttman, author of Equine ER

In Lynn Reardon’s world, the horses have as much personality as the people, and most all of them are real characters....Lynn’s gift is making the day-to-day chores and the simplest interactions poignant, meaningful, and insightful.”
Linda Kohanov, author of The Tao of Equus

Lynn Reardon shares a personal journey to which many horse lovers secretly aspire: leaving the safety of the office cubicle and embarking upon a career working with horses.”
Rick Lamb, host of The Horse Show

Every now and again all too rarely a book crosses my desk that is a must-read. Beyond the Homestretch is one of them.”
Marc Bekoff, author of The Emotional Lives of Animals

A wonderful, wonderful journey that inspires us all to live our lives with purpose, on purpose.”
Joe Camp, author of The Soul of a Horse
