HORSING AROUND IN FLORIDA: Israel participated in an international equestrian event for the first time last Friday, when the show jumping team of Danielle Goldstein, Elad Yaniv and Joshua Tabor competed at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida. Kate Levy, CEO of T.E.A.M. Israel - The Equine Athletics Mission Israel, served as team captain. While the Canadian team walked away with the $75,000 prize, the Israelis took pride in establishing their country’s competitive status in equestrian sports. “Competing as a team at this level is no longer just a dream, and we hope to inspire more Israeli riders to join us in creating depth in our equestrian sports for generations to come,” Levy said. Goldstein, a Duke University graduate from Wellington, Florida, competed under the Israeli flag at the European Championships in Denmark last summer and coached the Israeli show jumping team to a gold medal finish at the 2013 Maccabiah Games. T.E.A.M. Israel is dedicated to developing equestrianism in Israel.
