Our mission is to develop horsemen and horsewomen by teaching traditional principles of Western Horsemanship which build the integrity, confidence and foundation of both horse and rider.
Starting in 2019 my business will focus on teaching all the ABC’s of Western Horsemanship and the rewarding journey of evolving and becoming an accomplished Horseman or Horsewoman.
We will also focus on teaching the skills required to show in theses events:
For the past few years I have developed Ranch Riding horse and rider partnerships who
have had success in the AQHA showpen. I have also been an AQHA world qualifier in Ranch Riding in 2017 and 2018.
I am excited to be a part of the growing popularity and success of this class. The Ranch
Riding class combines Western Pleasure, Western Horsemanship, Western Riding, Reining and Trail.
It takes a versatile horse with a willing attitude. It is the fastest growing class in AQHA. I believe it’s because people look at it and feel it is possible for them to do with the equipment they have and the horse they own.
It is so important to believe in “WHAT IS POSSIBLE.” Come see me so we can talk about the possibilities for you and your horse!
I have loved horses my entire life. I started riding at the age of three, sitting in front of my Dad herding cattle. The first time I was bucked off was riding in front of my Dad. He got bucked off and since I was riding in front of him I went too. He landed on his back and I landed on his stomach.
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.
My favorite show horse was named Sandy Spur and he was an amazing individual. He earned the title of AQHA Supreme Champion. He was AAA on the track as a race horse and earned all the event AQHA points required and my dad finished up his roping points.
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.
