"Nina understands that every horse
has to be treated individually, by its character.
She can control her nerves
and doesn´t collapse in tight spots.
She has a unique intuitive skill
that can´t be purchased anywhere.
You either have it or not."

- Christopher Wegelius

New challenges for Team Fagerström
Nina is taking a nNina, Tiina and
                      Alexanderew step in her career to become an entrepreneur with her partner Alexander Rohling. Tiina Tuunanen will continue as Nina's long-term groom.
Nina recalls: "The previous 10 years spent at Stephex Stables have been very educational and the support from Stephen Conter has been invaluable to my career. I have had the opportunity to compete with top class horses with a large team behind me. Going solo has been my plan for quite some time and now the time is right. It will be really exciting for me to develop new horses my own way."
Nina and Alex are located at Stal Bergmans in Doenrade Netherlands which is right in the center of the European horse community. With quick access to Belgium Germany and France, offering a brand new and modern facility to meet all the needs of riders and horses.
Unfortunately we won't be seeing Nina competing with Mouse and Talent, the horses owned by Stephex Stables and the Crack Furniture Store. Now that Nina is leaving Stephex Stables and going solo, this leaves an open door and rare opportunity for investors, owners and sponsors to bring their horses or products into the winners circle at the highest international level and offers a possibility for riders who appreciate a committed coach.

Great weekend on Paris CSI5* Saut Hermes
Olympic champion Eric Lamaze of Canada on Hickstead and Finland's Nina Fagerstrom on Talent teamed up Saturday to win the EUR € 100,000 (US $ 144,000) Saut Hermès pairs competition with the only two double clear rounds. The USA's Beezie Madden on Carol Reef Via Volo and Richard Spooner on Cristallo placed second in the two-round class, with Germany's Marcus Ehning on Plot Blue and Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum on Kismet 50 third and the USA's Laura Kraut and Cedric and Pius Schwizer of Switzerland and Carlina finishing fourth.

The class consisted of two rounds at 1.60 m in mixed teams of two with the result determined by the accumulation of points and the total time of the second round. Nina Fagerstrom is a pupil of the Canadian: "but now Nina trains me," he said. "Nina did well again this year. Last year I had a fault. Today she went clear again and I did a bit better, so I am the one who is still learning!"

Nina has been nominated to represent Finland the World Championships in Kentucky
On Monday August 8, The Equestrian Federation of Finland made a proposal for the board to confirm the prospects of the team to go to Kentucky. (

Nina was nominated to represent Finland in jumping. The jumping discipline will be held on Oct. 4-9.

The very first World Equestrian Games were held in Stockholm in 1990. Six disciplines were involved--Jumping, Dressage, Eventing, Driving, Endurance and Vaulting. In 1994 the city of The Hague in the Netherlands hosted the Games.

After a late cancellation of the Games that were to be held in Dublin, Ireland, Rome stepped forward to host the 1998 Games on one year's notice. All disciplines except the Endurance were held and beautifully executed considering the very short preparation time. The Endurance was held in Dubai that year.

The next Games were held in Jerez de Frontera, Spain in 2002 and included all six disciplines and Reining for the first time. Following that the Games went to Aachen 2006, again with seven disciplines, and were a fabulous success.

In 2010 the games leave Europe for the first time and come to the United States to the Kentucky Horse Park where, for the first time, Para Dressage, the newest FEI Discipline will be competed together with the other seven.

"Finland means so much to me and I am very proud to represent my country in the games. Its not sure which of my horses is going Talent or Wivina. I will make the decision from the feeling of them in the next competitions." 
6–8.8. CSI 2* Bonheiden
This competition was more of getting to know the not so familiar horses.

Binky was placed every day. A new horse Laetitia which has jumped with Alexander Zetterman formerly seems to be a very fit and capable horse. The co-operation was tested in the Big Tour and they had only one time fault in the GP. The time was especially tight and Nina was very pleased with the result. Chauvinist Z (owned by Ms Lia Lammi) did the Medium Tour and was clear in two classes. A new acquaintance Welunia (7 yrs old),a very sensitive and promising mare did the smaller classes.

Nina has jumped up to number 60 in the FEI Rolex Ranking list
Kevin Staut is the leader with Eric Lamaze second. Nina is the best Finn. The next Finnish riders are Mikael Forsten as 117 and Sebastian Numminen as 354. (List nr 115, 31.7.2010)

The FEI Rolex Ranking points are counted from the results in international shows (CSI 3* >) of the rider in the previous 12 months. (
30.7–1.8.2010 CSI5* San Patrignano
Nina was placed 10th with Talent in the high classed 160 cm GP of San Patrignano. They had a clear round but one time fault left them out of the jump-off.

Nina in MTV 3 Huomenta Suomi (Good Morning Finland) -TV morning show
On June 1, 2010 Nina was as guest on the popular TV-show. When the host asked Nina what is her secret in success, the smiling Nina highlighted the meaning of hard work. Nina is known of her ability to gain success with different kinds of horses and when asking about this the young top rider declared: "You have to get to know each horse, you have to value it and build up its weaknesses". To the question of which is more important, the riders motivation or talent, Nina placed motivation first but also confessed "maybe I have some talent also."
