In the Middle are the Horsemen
In 2008, 26–year–old Tik Maynard faced a crossroads not unlike that of other young adults. A university graduate and modern pentathlete, he suffered both a career–ending injury and a painful breakup, leaving him suddenly adrift. The son of prominent Canadian equestrians, Maynard decided to spend the next year as a working student." In the horse industry, working students aspire to become professional riders or trainers, and willingly trade labor for hands–on education.
Tik grew up riding with the Vancouver Pony Club, in Southlands, British Columbia, earning his “A” rating.
The Eighty-dollar Champion: Snowman, the horse that inspired a Nation
Harry de Leyer first saw the horse he would name Snowman on a truck bound for the slaughterhouse.

Here is the dramatic and inspiring rise to stardom of an unlikely duo. One show at a time, against extraordinary odds and some of the most expensive thoroughbreds alive, the pair climbed to the very top of the sport of show jumping.
