About

Charis Youth Ranch is a 501(c)(3) local nonprofit that rescues and rehabilitates horses to partner them with youth from all over Northern Colorado. Our organization has 19 rescued horses on 35 acres of pasture. We are looking for dedicated horse lovers to join our feeding team!

Our herd gets fed twice a day rain or shine, blizzard or holiday. A typical feeding shift includes filling water troughs, moving hay bales in a wheelbarrow, preparing grain mixes, and moving horses both individually and as a herd. As a volunteer feeder you will be plugged into a weekly feeding shift (i.e. Friday morning) that suits your schedule. 4WD is recommended especially during winter months. Previous horse knowledge is not necessary but encouraged. Love of learning, outdoors, and horses is a MUST!!

Time commitment is ~1.5 hrs once a week to fill an a.m. or p.m. feeding shift. Shift coverage are available if given timely notice to other volunteers. There is opportunity to grow with our organization and become more involved with working and training horses as well, but based on level of commitment and love for the ranch.

If you are interested to learn more, please check out our website at charisyouthranch.org or respond to this posting! Happy Trails!
