About the Farm

The Maus Farm is a horse farm in Cottrellville, Michigan dedicated to producing high quality, and good minded horses for a multitude of riding disciplines.  Our primary focus is Reining, but we also produce horses for other disciplines. We have a small, but very skilled and passionate team.

Who we are


Nicky Maus - Owner, General Manager

A true animal lover, Nicky has had a passion for riding her entire life.  She rode on the equestrian team at University of Indianapolis before moving out to Colorado where the Reining world was shown to her.  She spent years working under world class trainer Terry Wegener and riding and training horses at Vista Verde Guest Ranch.  After she got married, she and her husband moved back to the Midwest and eventually settled in Michigan to begin building their dream; a barn that has some of the best horses in the world.

Karl Maus - Director of Operations

Karl is a city boy who found his dream county girl in Nicky.  Originally from Michigan, he had been living in NYC and moved to the mountains and met Nicky.  Since then, the two have been planning and working to build their life together around horses.  Karl keeps the farm running and makes sure Nicky has everything she and the horses need.
