Pamila Cronkhite founded Son Rise Ranch over 25 years ago as a way to help troubled youth through horsemanship. She worked with probation officers and lawyers to encourage at risk youth to participate in her program. When friends asked for their children to take lessons, she opened her program to all who were interested.
Since 1994, “Miss Pam” has dedicated all of her time & energy to youth development, as well as caring for the 15 horses and various barn animals on her 16 acres. Beyond riding skills and Horse Science, she is passionate about teaching the valuable life skills of team-building, camaraderie, having an outstanding work ethic, and self-confidence. In addition to year-round lessons, she holds camps, participates in fairs and parades, and runs other field trips and special events with her students.
Due to an auto- immune disease, Pamila has been confined to a wheelchair. She works tirelessly everyday to keep Son Rise Ranch going and now she needs our help.
Miss Pam needs a new home. The floors are caving in from the wheelchair and the roof is leaking. We hope to raise $60,000 towards making a new home possible. ( Any additional funds will be used to upgrade the ranch to make it wheelchair accessible.)
If Pam has impacted you or your family in any way, we hope you will consider blessing her by making a donation. Thank you for your kindnesses.
