For personal issues that do or do not have something to do with Parafrid: you can always approach our counselor of the association, Jarna. She will handle your information with confidentiality and has an obligation of secrecy. Here's an introduction of her and how you can reach her:

Hi everybody!

My name is Jarna Bruinsma and I’m the new counselor at G.S.P.V. Parafrid. I’ve been a(n active) member in our association for almost 2 years now and I have a permanent lesson spot on Tuesday evening. I’ve been riding at different riding schools since I was six years old, as well as in my province of birth Friesland as in Groningen, where I have been living now for 3 years. I’m studying at the academic teachers` college for primary education, because I hope to become a teacher in a primary school someday. Working with (older) children is something I really like to do, but driving long distances in my car, unicorns, tapirs, Christmas and pizza also belong to my interests!

Because I’ve been a member for a while now and because I’d like to help wherever I can, I am now your new counselor. That means you can come to me if you have questions or if you’re experiencing some issues with horseback riding or within the association, but also with study or social issues. Anything you can think of, you can discuss it with me, because that’s what I’m here for. Like the name says, I can counsel you in confidence and anonymously. Everybody’s heard it before a lot probably, but these are weird times we are now living in. And that’s the truth: physical and mental health are important, now more than ever. So, are you not feeling well or do you want some advice about how to handle something the best way? Do not hesitate and contact me. You can do that through the Google Forms-link below and on the website, as well as by Whatsapp, mail or at the Bongerd/riding school.

Here’s my contact information:
Name: Jarna Bruinsma

I hope you all will stay healthy and again, do not hesitate to reach out!
