Israeli showjumper Danielle Goldstein has qualified for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian games in Normandy, France.
Goldstein, who is currently competing her string of horses in Canada, will soon head to Europe to prepare for the Games.
She had an impressive winter season at the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, where she collaborated with The Equine Athletics Mission Israel (T.E.A.M. Israel) to put together the first Israeli Team at the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup. This was followed by a spring season competing in Israel at the National Championships, and Goldstein also had several top finishes during her time in Canada at Spruce Meadows and Thunderbird Horsepark, from 1.35m to CSI 5* Grand Prix.
In keeping with her history of pioneering for Israel, she will set her sights on being the first medal winning rider for her country at the World Equestrian Games.
Goldstein is supported by bit maker Neue Schule, and North American distributor Mette Larsen said the company was proud of the rider. “Danielle is an exceptional individual with big goals, and we are thrilled to be a part of her team. We wish her the best in her quest for the World Equestrian Games.”
