Show Jumper Danielle Goldstein Gears Up to Represent Israel on European Circuit
Chantilly, France (July 25, 2014) – Danielle Goldstein is preparing to face off with top international show jumpers at the prestigious Jumping Chantilly CSI2*/CSI5*, July 25-27 in France, and Event 10 of the Longines Global Champions Tour, August 1-3, in Valkenswaard, Holland. With riders across the globe preparing for the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France at the end of August, Goldstein will use the competitive environment to keep her horses at the top of their game. The competition will be fierce and the patriotism high as equestrians around the world begin the countdown to Normandy.
Goldstein has had a number of successes in 2014, from a beginning a successful season at the 2014 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival by winning the $10,000 Welcome Grand Prix, to riding in the first Israeli Team during the 2014 Furisyya Nations Cup. She and her horses have been competing in Canada on the prestigious Spruce Meadows and Thunderbird circuits, keeping the horses fit and preparing for the trip to France.
She and her horses have been staying in top form while competing on the Spruce Meadows and Thunderbird summer show circuits. During their time at Thunderbird, Boleybawn Perfection, or Boley, finished 3r with a double clear round in the 1.35m division. He continued that success at Spruce, putting in a clear round with only one time fault in the $5,000 1.35. Carrel Homes Barrage.
Goldstein’s top mount, a 1999 bay Swedish Warmblood mare named Carisma, also did well at Thunderbird with a top 7 finish in the CSI2* Welcome Grand Prix and the World Cup Qualifying Grand Prix. At Spruce, Carisma (Cardento 933 x Maraton 600) went double clear to finish 8th overall in the $85,000 1.55m Spectra Energy Cup, and had only one knockdown at the final fence in the $400,000 1.60m RBC Grand Prix presented by Rolex.
“The summer shows in Canada have been a good way to warm up for the World Equestrian Games, but with Normandy only a month away, I’m really looking forward to taking it to the next level competing in France and Holland,” said Goldstein. “It is an honor to represent Israel both in North American and in Europe.”
