WELCOME TO EQUILIFE – A magazine and website that is truly international in scope and aims to inspire and share knowledge throughout the equestrian world.Today, increased globalization offers both opportunities and threats to the equestrian sports. EQUILIFE wishes to take advantage of the opportunity to share valuable knowledge across borders and between disciplines.

Our horse interests are sometimes different. However, our dedication and passion for horses are genuinely the same, and this is what equestrianism is all about. EQUILIFE hopes to serve as a source of deeper insight by introducing carefully selected interview objects who have the gift to inspire others through their stories, knowledge, training and general life-philosophy, and certainly, their lives with horses.

We call it EQUESTRIAN HERITAGE

Christopher Strømmen

Art Director

As a previous show jumper, Christopher found his way to EQUILIFE by pure luck. When we looked for a qualified ART DIRECTOR we didn’t expect to find someone with true passion for horses at the same time. But we did. For Christopher it was a “dream come true” to be able to finally express the beauty, grace and elegance of the equestrian sport, and at the same time do his favorite thing: Magazine print design.

Nina’s passion for horses started already as a little girl riding ponies in Sweden where she grew up. The huge amount of fun and excitement made her dream about a future business with horses. After her marketing education she now runs a showjumping yard in the south of the Netherlands together with her partner. Dreams are made possible with a lot of dedication, faith and hard work. For Nina horses are fascinating animals and they all have such different personalities. The communication between horse and rider is crucial and the team effort of the two is what inspires her. She believes in the joy horses can bring and love’s the emotion and excitement of the equestrian sports.
