Groninger Student Riding Club Parafrid

For everybody who feels like horse riding during their study!

Groninger Students Riding Club Parafrid

Welcome to the website of the Groninger Studenten Paardrijvereniging Parafrid! Parafrid is the best (and only) student horse-riding association in Groningen, and also the largest one in the Netherlands. We offer our members weekly dressage and monthly jumping lessons. Besides this, we also offer nice activities almost every week; trail hacks, clinics, parties and dinners, we organize it all! If you like to ride competitions, we also compete with numerous other student associations in the Netherlands (visiting multiple cities) and compete against each other at our own stable de Oude Held.

G.S.P.V. Parafrid is part of two organizations: the ACLO and KNHS-VNS, the Groningen general student sports association and the Dutch general student horse-riding association. This way, students from the RUG and Hanze can come and ride at Parafrid. On this website you can find more information about the association, the lessons and committees. If you have any other questions you can always contact the board!
