Alan was born in a small village in England, Chaddesley Corbett. As a youngster he had a deep passion for horses, with cross country/eventing being a favorite activity. In 1999 Alan moved to the USA and settled in San Diego. Upon arriving, Alan quickly became involved in local charities. When he was introduced to Cornerstone, he found a passion for Cornerstone’s mission and the people we serve. Alan has served the program in many ways, for many years. From spearheading building projects, fundraising, to developing community events, and leading Cornerstone’s Board, Alan has been wholly dedicated to supporting and furthering Cornerstone’s mission. Alan is honored to serve as the President of the Cornerstone Board of Directors.
Thad grew up on a ranch in the agricultural belt of Central California working on his family’s ranch for most of his childhood. Thad and his family are avid team ropers which led him to a lifelong love of horses. Having enjoyed what horses could do for him and how they enhanced his quality of life, Thad jumped at the chance to serve on the Board of Directors for Cornerstone. Thad also served in the United States Marine Corps so he feels a close kinship to the veterans who benefit from the horses and Cornerstone’s outstanding “Operation Saddle Up” program. Thad has served on numerous boards over the years and brings his expertise and skill sets to enhance opportunities at Cornerstone. Thad is extremely proud and honored to be part of Cornerstone Therapeutic Riding Center.
