The owner of Camelot Horse Center, Diane Maynard
    was born and raised in Houston, Texas.  Her first horse-
    back riding experience was at the age of 3 at her
    grandparent's ranch.  In high school, Diane began
    taking English lessons in hunter/jumper riding from a
    local instructor and fell in love with the harmony
    Classical riding develops between horse and rider. She
    went on to show and compete in local shows.  That love
    inspired her to continue and earn an International
    Horsemaster's degree from Morven Park International
    Equestrian Institute, once home of the U.S. Olympic
    Equestrian Team. She was invited to remain at the
    Institute training horses under their expert guidance.  
    She also earned a BA in Education from Baylor

    She has spent her life-long career as a professional
    rider, trainer, and instructor.  After competing for many
    years at the National and International level in dressage,
    jumping, and eventing, she now concentrates on
    passing on her knowledge to her students and their
    horses.  She has been at her current location just west
    of Tomball, Texas (northwest of Houston) since 1987.
