About us....


Bow Brickhill Stables is owned by John and Maxine Alexis who purchased the property in 2009 with the goal of establishing a riding facility that provided the highest quality care and amenities in a warm and friendly atmosphere.  This goal has resonated with our audience and, notwithstanding the Great Recession, Bow Brickhill Stables has gone from strength to strength as we develop and grow.  We believe that fun creates passion, which creates success - but everything begins with fun!


The farm is located in Hunterdon County, New Jersey - truly the heart of the US equestrian community.  We are 10 minutes from the legendary Hunterdon Farm in Pittstown, NJ from which George Morris molded an entire generation of riders.  Hunterdon County boasts an incredibly high concentration of olympic and international level riders, as well the veterinary, farrier, bodyworker and other expertise necessary to cater to that caliber of competitor and we enjoy the services of many of these professionals at Bow Brickhill Stables.  We are 15 minutes from Bucks County Horse Park, PA which offers fabulous schooling facilities for a change of scenery.  We are just over an hour west of New York City and just under an hour north of Philadelphia. 


John manages the day to day operations of Bow Brickhill Stables.  We have a talented team of instructors led by head trainer Tik Maynard, who focuses on our eventers program and young horse development, and Ashley Pate, who heads up our hunter/jumpers/equitation program.  Our clients range for 5 year-old beginners to advanced level competitors.  We are committed to developing young riders and have a pool of talented lesson horses and ponies.   Bow Brickhill Stables is a family-run business and John, his wife Maxine and their children ride and train with our instructors.

Many have asked about the origin of the name "Bow Brickhill Stables." The farm is named after a village in Buckinghamshire, England where owners John and Maxine Alexis used to ride during trips back to Maxine's home in the U.K.  The beautiful woods around the village of Bow Brickhill featured an amazing network of broad, well footed bridle-paths where local riders could really let their horses stretch out.
