Charis Ranch is a simple, yet amazing horse rescue in Laporte. I was looking into volunteer opportunities for myself and that is how I found Charis Ranch. They do free summer camps for kids to learn about horses. These are not high-pressure "ride-a-horse" classes. It's all about experiencing horses and learning their individual personalities and rescue stories.

 Charis Youth Ranch home of New Life Thoroughbreds is a registered Colorado non profit 501(c)(3) corporation. Our mission is to rescue, rehabilitate and sanctuary retired racehorses by transitioning them from a life of racing into new careers or providing sanctuary for life. Additionally, we endeavor to connect youth from all walks of life with these rescued horses to learn unconditional love and trust, which facilitates healing for both equine and child.
