Stanley is an instructor for horse-riding lessons, and the manager of the Algeria Farms, a farm in Elwood City.


He instructs Catherine and Francine in horseback riding, with Catherine developing a crush on him. He is very encouraging to Francine, helping her up on the horse's back. When Francine overhears him complimenting Catherine's riding while noting that Francine is only a beginner, she temporarily gives up on lessons. Knowing that she longs to be a rider, Catherine and Stanley work out a plan to have Francine help Catherine with her new job. Due to her talent, Stanley hires her to help teach new riders, while Francine will help take care of the horses.

On another occasion, Francine brings her new friend Mrs. Pariso to the stables, where Stanley helps them as they go riding.
