G.S.P.V. Parafrid was founded in 1986 by Bas van Vliet, Marleen de Graaf, Christine Brouwer and Elseline van den Assem. The first location was at the Friesestraatweg, but after 5 years the riding school moved to its current location, riding hall “De Oude Held”. For years the stables were run by the Mr. and Mrs. Zwerwer, nowadays the stables are managed by their son Siebren Zwerwer.The logo is based on the weather vane from the Martini tour. At this moment we have one dispute named Paradox. Other disputes from the past were: Parasiet, Parodie, Paramaribo, Paraplu, Parabella en de Paralompies.
The board of Parafrid has twice a year a general member meeting. Then the board will tell her members what they did the past half year and what the plans are for the next half year. The board is also present at the lessons to help.
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!
