Our Team.

Roaring Run Equestrian Center was established in 2014 as a joint venture between the Sodowsky and the Bender families.  Although distance separates these two families, they remain close in their high ideals of horse care and animal wellbeing.  Not long after the business was started, Kathy was introduced to Lisa Hall and their value for Dressage and the education of both horse and rider brought them together as friends, mentor/trainer/teacher (Lisa) and student (Kathy). Lisa generously collaborates with us while still training full time at her resident barn (Full Circle) in Ligonier.   Madi's lifelong love of horses brought her back to the farm after college to pursue her dreams of a professional riding and training career.  With all the horses involved in the family, Wayne soon joined the trend by taking his passion for farrier work from hobby to career.  We are all working together to turn RREC into an educational hub for horse and rider.  We are committed to providing superior learning experiences through clinics, lessons, exceptional boarding and training as well as working with other local groups and organizations to further the quality and quantity of horse education here in Western PA.
