About us

Maverick Stables is run by the Vogelaar family: Jan Cees and Manita, Mariëlle and Lisa. Horses have been an important part of the family’s life for many years. They are avid horse lovers and have knowledge and experience with riding and training as well as breeding and caring for horses. The name Maverick Stables originated from the family’s previous dairy farm: Maverick Manor. The name Maverick has been retained, not least because of the meaning of the word. Maverick stands for “untamed, independent, different thinking”.

Mariëlle and Lisa are responsible for the daily care of the boarding horses and organize dressage, jumping and eventing competitions and other events. Lisa also does the financial administration. Mariëlle has completed the ORUN instructor training and is authorized to teach. Both also practice equestrian sports themselves. Manita and Jan-Cees are there for the daily management of Maverick Stables. In addition to administrative management, Manita is also responsible for the care of the boarding horses. Maverick Stables employees have completed their First Aid diploma or the Safety and Emergency Response (BHV) training.
