Lia Sader - Stepping Stone Farms Executive Director

Lia Sader, consummate equestrian and founder of Stepping Stone Farms, says that riding a horse, “Is like doing 23 things at once.” Multi-tasking is how Lia lives her life. From caring for sick horses at 2:00 a.m., to leading workshops for inner-city youth, to teaching appropriate horsemanship skills, to speaking at conferences, to shoveling horse apples, Lia does all this and more. (Coffee and adrenaline help.) She is a well-respected local farrier, trainer and member of the American Riding Instructor Association, and an EAGALA certified Equine Specialist. Lia has devised the programs at Stepping Stone Farms that address and embrace a long-standing community need of reaching out to at-risk youth. She served on the board of the Wisconsin Walking Horse Association and is a former Upper Midwest Horseshoers Association board member. Lia’s life work is dedicated to saving horses and people through explorations of equine-human interactions.
