David and Cortland Hendrick met while living in Eastern Siberia, Russia, in the early ’90s. They were both doing student work. They later lived in Jordan and Iraq, working in sports development with Iraqi students. They served from 1999-2005.
In 2005, they launched Cornerstone Farms.
Cornerstone Farms was a successful riding academy for many years, which supported a non-profit riding program called Bridge the Divide. Over its ten-year span Bridge the Divide gave over 1,000 free recreational riding lessons a year to children with special needs. In addition, it provided horse show opportunities for these children and even ran a worksite for adults with special needs, Monday through Friday.
Today, Cornerstone Farms is supported through the generosity of donors, volunteers and the community it serves.
