Who works at Frysk-Andaluz and who trains the horses? Who are the faces on the website and who will you get on the phone when you call us. We think it is very important that you know who you may be doing business with.
Richard Flier is owner of Frysk-Andaluz and married to Charissa Flier. Richard takes on many tasks such as buying the horses, selling the horses, the website, helping with saddling the horses and he does some of the bookkeeping. Richard also almost always has the phone with him and is usually the point of contact when you call. Richard rides the shovel more than a horse but does enjoy the occasional lovely forest ride with one of our own brood mares.
Charissa is married to Richard and has worked on the farm since 2005. She used to ride all the horses but due to lack of time and expansion of the business, she now rides few trade horses and only competes her own horses. Charissa mainly does the customer reception and guidance, she is mainly known as the “matchmaker”. She can really sense which horse suits you best. She also does the purchasing of the horses together with Richard and she makes the texts, photos and videos for the website. She also manages the staff and helps train the horses.
Hannah Broek bought her first own 3-year-old Friesian mare from us with her stepfather when she was 12 years old. We could see even then that she would become a good and fearless rider. Hannah has been working with us since 2016 and specialises mainly in saddling young horses. She also rides Z dressage with her own horse Duco. Hannah also regularly helps clients find the right horse.
Kees joined us in 2020 as a trainee on the course Horse and Sport, after successfully completing this course she officially joined us in 2021. Kees has a lot of competition experience up to Inter II level and rides the young horses further and also rides the horses that are already running at level. Kees also regularly helps clients.

Robin also started working for us as a trainee and joined us in 2022. Robin generally does stable work, puts the horses in the paddock, puts them in the horse walker and takes care of grooming.
