Lorick Stables imported their first mare from Holland in 2002, but their passion for breeding Dutch horses began when they purchased their first Friesian in 1997. That mare, Diane D by Frans, produced, when bred to Warn, the two mares, Zeva LSI and Vianke LSI who are still the mainstay of this very special Breeding Program. These two mares have gone on to produce Mink LSI by Iron Spring Farmsʼ Teade and Nelis LSI by Sibald 30.
Another great producer for Lorick Stables has been their imported World Champion mare, Mentha fan Ferwalde, the dam of Hendrica LSI, 2012 USEF Horse of the Year in Halter and still dominating the show ring in Halter and under saddle with new owner, Little River Plantation. The great mare Tomasina D, a full sister to approved stallions Bonne and Teunis, is in foal to Sape for 2014 and is the dam of our beautiful Reserve World Champion Stallion Wilrik LSI. Oukje-Elza, one of our mares bred by Diane Dominguez, is the Dam of several Champions including our up and coming Halter Super Star and Region 2 Champion Mare, Arja LSI by Teade.
Lorick Stables is located in beautiful Youngstown, New York, just a few miles from the Canadian border and Niagara Falls. Not only do the LSI horses compete at IFSHA/ USEF Horse Shows all over the country, they also exhibit at Horse Fairs and American Driving Society events as well as USDF Dressage Shows. The farm and horses are managed and trained by Gareth
A. Selwood, a USEF Equestrian of Honor and multi-carded judge. The whole farmʼs being, from structural concept to breeding and then personalized training and care, has been the passion of Lorie Washuta and Rick Butts, who for almost twenty years have dedicated their time, resources and energy to this winning farm of happy horses. Lorick Stables is excited for what the future holds and is pleased to announce that NUTRENA FEED has joined their team as sponsor and consultant.
