sherriedavisSherrie Davis, Founder

Sherrie has loved the outdoors, kids and horses for as long as she can remember. She is currently a Physical Education Teacher, mother to four and grandma to four.

She heard and read about an Oregon woman named Kim Meeder and realized they shared a similar passion: building hope and resilience into the hearts of hurting and at-risk children using horses who themselves needed rescuing and rehabilitation

Sherrie has attended Clinics at Crystal Peaks and shares a similar heart to speak hope into the lives of kids and families.

In 2007, after meeting Glen Gordon at the clinic in Bend, OR, they teamed up and founded Mountain River Youth Ranch.
