Lessons and Training



Bow Brickhill Stables offers lessons from the young beginner to the advanced level rider.  We have safe beginner horses (our youngest riders start at the age of 5!) as well as more advanced horses for seasoned riders.  Our horses are also available for shows.  Showing is not mandatory for our students but it is available to those who want to move in that direction.  For lesson pricing please look under the Boarding section of our website. We also offer horses for lease and sale.



Sarah specializes in the hunter/jumpers and has trained with and worked for such notables as Annie Dotoli at Stephex Stables in Belgium, Olympian Hugh Graham in Toronto, Canada, and Olympian Nona Garson in New Jersey.  Sarah was brought up on her family farm in British Columbia, Canada, and has spent her entire life learning, teaching, competing and perfecting her talents.  She has attained the highest level of trainer certification (Level 4 CHA) that the Certified Horsemanship Association in Canada offers.  


Her thoughtful and patient  approach to training and instruction fits beautifully with our philosophy and we are glad to welcome her to our team.

Tik hails from Vancouver, Canada, and is the son of two accomplished professional equestrians.  Tik's father, Rick Maynard, was short-listed for the Canadian three-day eventing team for the 1976 Olympics and continues to coach show jumping for the Canadian national Modern Pentathlon team, including at the London 2012 Olympics.  Tik's mother, Jennifer Maynard, competed in dressage at FEI levels and is a senior Canadian judge.


Tik has enjoyed success in the show ring, both in Canada and internationally.  He spent six years on the Canadian National Team competing in the Modern Pentathlon.  During that time he received recognition as Junior National Champion (2003) and Senior National Champion (2005 and 2007).  He competed at the Pan-American Games in Rio De Janeiro, Brazil, in 2007, at three World Championships and eleven World Cups.  He was long-listed to the Canadian eventing team for the London 2012 Olympics and has been selected to the long-list for the Canadian national team for 2013.  


Tik has been a working student for David and Karen O'Connor (Eventing), Johann Hinnermann (Dressage), Ingrid Klimke (Dressage and Eventing) and Bruce Logan (Horsemanship and Cutting).  Prior to joining Bow Brickhill Stables in 2011, Tik worked as an assistant trainer for five-time Olympian, Anne Kursinski (Show Jumping).
