My daughter has taken lessons with Lori for several years and we couldn't be happier with the experience.  Lori is very knowledgeable about all things horse related.  She is great at finding different ways to explain things.  She also takes care to stress safety, which is very important.  One of the best things about lessons with Lori is how great she is with her students.  She is always cheerful and fun to be around.  She is very good at working with kids.  She knows when to push and when to back off.  We just really liked her philosophy and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning more about riding!

After working with Lori I have more confidence in my work with horses - from groundwork to riding. I have gained valuable training that has allowed me to advance my riding and improve my techniques. Lori is a trainer with your skill level in mind but understands how to keep pushing you forward.

I couldn't have done it without her! Lori's focus and ability to see the best in each rider is unmatched. She can take riders and their horses to the next level through her dedication and hard work. She is a master at teaching mind control of a rider, and how to visualize success, and consequently achieve it.

My daughter loves her riding lessons!  Lori cares about her students and wants to help them find their passion. She provides a variety of experiences during my child's lesson to expose her to different types of riding and events, and to improve and develop her skills.


I have trained with Lori since 2014. When I began riding with Lori I was a very inexperienced rider and in the past 3 years she has helped me gain the skills necessary to not be only be a knowledgeable and confident rider but also a horse owner. Since starting with Lori I have bought a horse and begun going to horse shows. I would never have had the confidence or experience to be able to do that if it were not for Lori’s training and guidance. Lori Stancik has been in the horse industry for over 40 years as a competitor and as a coach. She made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her and took my first lesson. As a riding instructor she is patient, kind and she explains how to get the most from your relationship with your horse. Lessons with Lori are customized to meet your needs and ability level whether you are a beginner or more advanced. Lori is always helpful and very knowledgeable.
