Dressage lessons

The lessons at G.S.P.V Parafrid last an hour. You need to be present at the riding school half an hour before the start of your class. First the weekly announcements will be made with the dates of upcoming activities, after which the horses will be allocated by means of a lottery system. At your first lesson or try-out lesson the board will help you with everything! We have a maximum weight of 85 kg because of the welfare of the horses.


An approved safety helmet is obligatory during the lessons also shoes with a small heel with a minimum of two centimeters are obligatory for safety reasons. It is preferred to wear horse riding trousers, if you do not have one, wear pants that do not rub and in which you can move comfortably, for example leggings. Do you have questions about riding clothes? Feel free to ask them to the board at:


When you are unable to ride your lesson, you need to cancel it in advance. This can be done by contacting the secretary via email: Cancellation of a lesson must be done before Saturday 9 pm, but is preferred earlier so another rider can be found to replace you.

Jumping lessons

About once every two weeks there’s a jumping lesson for members of G.S.P.V. Parafrid at Manege De Bongerd at Glimmen. This lesson takes place on a Wednesday from 6 till 7 pm, and is meant for semi-advanced and advanced riders. Manege De Bongerd is attainable by bus.


In the weekly announcements you can find on which data there are jumping lessons, and before what date you can sign up at the latest. Just like with the dressage lessons it’s mandatory to wear a safety helmet and shoes with a heel of at least 2 centimeters. With the jumping lessons it’s also mandatory to wear a bodyprotector. If you don’t have one or if you can’t borrow one, you can rent one at Manege De Bongerd for €2,50.
