How nice that you are interested in the faces behind T.S.R. Cave ne Cadas! We'd like to introduce ourselves so you know who you're in contact with.


My name is Etiënne van Dijk.

I am 21 years old and I'm currently in my Bachelor of Theology at Tilburg University.

The biggest part of my life I’ve spent with horses, but I only started riding when I was ten. I continued riding for a few years but then I stopped. I picked up riding again when I joined Cave ne Cadas. I ride almost weekly now. Last year I joined the board as secretary, and this year I will be the chairman.


Hey! My name is Inge and I will fulfil the role of secretary in our association. For the past half year I’ve been working as treasurer and I’ve really loved being involved in the board of our association.  I’m 25 years old and I just graduated from my master clinical psychology. I’ve just started working at a nursing home, but I get to finish my board year. After having ridden on ponies for a large part of my teens, I’ve been riding almost every week in the student lessons of Cave ne Cadas for three years now. We are a small but very fun association and I would definitely recommend our lessons to anyone who is still riding or has ridden and even beginners.


Hay! My name is Astrid and I am currently a second year Liberal Arts & Sciences student at Tilburg University, with a major in Business & Economics. Therefore, it probably won’t surprise you that in our association I will fulfill the role of treasurer. I am 20 years old and when I was seven years old, I started horse riding. Ever since then, I have both ridden at riding schools and helped caring for horses of other people; actually, I simply like everything that has to do with these amazing animals! Pretty much right away when I started studying in Tilburg I joined Cave ne Cadas and I am still very happy that I made that choice. I cannot imagine my student life without the fun and instructive horse riding lessons, the awesome activities and the amazing friends I made at Cave ne Cadas!

My name is Eva and I’m doing a master of humanistics in Utrecht, after I finished my HBO Social work (and a premaster humanistics). I originally come from Oosterhout, but I have been living in Tilburg for 5 years now (because Tilburg is just the best student city!). I started horse riding when I was ten, and when I moved to Tilburg I joined this association, because I couldn’t misschien my biggest hobby! From the start I felt connected with Cave ne Cadas, which is why this year is my third board year already. On the picture you see the horse that I take care of, Pardoes.
