About Us







Charles and Michele Pellham established Cornerstone Horsemanship with the goals of giving young horses a solid start under saddle, teaching horsemanship to riders of all disciplines, and incorporating horsemanship methods into the show world.

With over 50 years combined experience in the horse industry, Charles and Michele have the depth of knowledge needed for training horses and teaching people.  Horses and students that have gone through the Cornerstone Program have won many local, state, and national championships in events including hunter/jumpers, dressage, reining, ranch pleasure/ranch riding, roping, cutting, western pleasure, stock horse, ranch trail, and working ranch horse.



Both AQHA Professional Horsemen, Charles and Michele have qualified multiple horses for the AQHA World Shows, as well as the AQHA Versatility Ranch Horse World Shows.
