Maverick Sporthorses is the home to Sophie Burling Showjumpers, traveling a team of showjumping horses nationwide, competing in age series and grand prix classes. All of our horses carry the 'M' suffix, which we hope will become a letter synonymous with quality.
We take great pride in producing high quality, performance-bred showjumping horses. The yard is run by Sophie Burling, who competes to Grand Prix in New Zealand. A high level of importance is placed on producing horses slowly and properly for the higher echelons of the sport. As well as the competition stable, Maverick also runs an exciting breeding operation, breeding a small number of performance foals each year through the utilisation of the best genetics available and raising them in an environment to maximise their potential.
We are located on the north east coast of the Bay of Islands, surrounded by some of the country's most beautiful coastal farmland.
