Marlies was born on the 30th of August 1980 in Brakel. From early on, she had an enormous passion for horses. Marlies started her equestrian career on her pony Anjonette, experienced her first international competitions with the pony Dancer and became a laureate Junior and Young Rider rider. After obtaining her high school diploma, Marlies followed the two-year program to become a “Bereiter” in Warendorf. During these two years, she did an internship at the stable of Johan Hinnemann located in Voerde. In 2002, she made the transition from Young Riders to Seniors. Today, Marlies rides very successfully at the Senior level.

At DVB, Marlies trains horses up until Grand Prix level. Marlies rides national and international competitions and coaches several riders. Coby and Marlies are together responsible for the stable management and the bookkeeping.

Marlies about the motivation behind her work:
“Working with rider and horse is extremely rewarding! The challenge is to get the best out of myself and every horse, and with coaching I pass this on to my students.”
