01-10-2016 Pruulke became a champion of STER stallions at keuring in Hradistko, Czech Republic
We want to congratulate Marketa Jackova on another success at the keuring.
Thank you Charissa and Richard for finding this dream horse for me. I have bought two stallions from you so far (one from your own breeding line, and this one through you - with your professional help) and they both got STER titles and champion titles! I could not wish for more. THANK YOU.
22-09-2016 Nora Stb Ster (v. Thorben 466), Champion of the Mares and Champion of the Day at the British Columbia, Canada Keuring
We want to congratulate Diane Drouillard with having such good results at the keuring! Imagine, how many customers are buying horses from us unseen (from the internet); it is on one way a big honor for us but on the other way also a big responsibility for us, selling the right horses, to the right owner. If it goes like Nora, we are double happy!! We are having a good time overhere and watch everyone having such good successes on the keurings and dressage competitions! Below a pictures of Nora and the Dutch judges.

9 May 2015 – FHS Ikke scores high points on the first outdoor competition for Friesian horses
Bianca Volkers writes:
Today we had our first selection for the outdoor championship for Friesian horses with our Ster mare FHS Ikke.
We scored two first places with 210 / 205 points.
We bought this mare by Charissa and Richard at Friesian Horse Stables, while we were looking for an extra ordinary stallion. But since this mare shows so much quality for dressage we decided to buy her instead of a stallion.
We, from Friesian Horse Stables has so much confidence in this combination that our name initials 'FHS' are in Ikke’s competition name!

13-07-2013 Fokdag Kootwijk 2013: Haitske kwam, zag en overwon!!
Ter ere van het 40-jarig bestaan van de Fokvereniging Het Friesche Paard Midden Nederland, de oudste Fokvereniging buiten Friesland, werden alle 1e premie merries uitgenodigd voor de Kampioensring. Het aantal merries dat uitgenodigd werd voor de kampioensring viel uiteindelijk mee omdat er slechts één driejarige merrie het oranje lint kreeg uitgereikt. Maar dit was dan ook niet de minste: Haitske fan het Vaantje (Haitse 425 Sport) liet een grote klasse zien, niet alleen met haar prachtige rastype maar vooral met haar sublieme beweging. Haitske draafde met veel veer en schwung door de baan. Richard Flier en Charissa Verheij van Friesian Horse Stables in Barendrecht, voorheen Frysk Andaluz, kochten afgelopen winter uit medelijden drie zwaar verwaarloosde Friese merries die al langs verschillende handelsstallen waren gegaan. Eén daarvan was Haitske. De afgelopen maanden heeft Haitske in het land gelopen en heeft de kans gekregen om weer op krachten te komen. Training en het keuringsklaar maken door de Gebroeders Van Manen maakten het plaatje compleet. Flier en Verheij hadden totaal niet op een 1e premie gerekend: 'We dachten eigenlijk dat ze nog wat te arm bespierd was. Het was een gok om deze merries te kopen, maar dit heeft heel goed uitgepakt.'
In het kampioenschap van de drie jaar en oudere merries kwam de concurrentie voor Haitske van de vier tot en met zesjarige stermerries en de Kroonmerries. De sterkste concurrente bleek de zevenjarige Tini van Stal Van der Horst Kroon (Arjen 417 Sport) van mw. H. van den Bor-v.d. Bunt. Jurylid Louise Hompe omschreef de rassige Tini als 'een kast van een merrie.' Haitske charmeerde de jury met haar jeugdige uitstraling en werd kampioen; Tini mocht zich opstellen als reserve-kampioen van de drie jaar en oudere merries.
In de kampioensring om het algeheel dagkampioenschap was de puf er een beetje uit bij de jonge Juwiel. Haitske bleef constant en overtuigend goed draven, waardoor de keus van de jury op de driejarige viel.
