Show Jumper Danielle Goldstein and Carisma Shine at FEI European Championships in Aachen

Aachen, Germany (August 26, 2015)Since a young age, Danielle Goldstein has been dreaming of becoming an Olympic athlete. Over the last few years, she has come closer than ever to achieving that dream. After becoming an Israeli citizen in 2010, she has been able to represent Israel at top shows in Europe and in the United States. This month, at the FEI European Championships from August 11-23 in Aachen, Germany, Goldstein and her equine partner Carisma soared to top placings and came another stride closer to establishing themselves as true Olympic contenders.

 

Since the duo began competing together nearly two years ago, Goldstein and the 16-year-old Swedish Warmblood mare (Cardento 933 x Maraton 600), owned by Israeli Equestrian Partners, have rocketed more than 150 placings up the Longines world show jumping rankings, thanks to strong performances like a second-place finish in the $375,000 CSI5* Grand Prix in Wellington, Florida before she headed to Europe.

 

When discussing what it is like to compete at one of the most important show jumping venues in Europe, Goldstein said, “Aachen is impressive to anyone. I made a mistake last year at the World Equestrian Games by letting myself get overwhelmed, so this year, I just kept thinking about the riding and tried not to look into the stands! If I just looked where I was going on course, there would be no time to notice the pressure. I think my plan worked out well. The courses were fair, but built to the highest and widest specs. No one’s horses seemed overfaced, and rails came down all over the courses, not just in one area each day. That’s the sign of a really well-built championship.”

 

Goldstein and Carisma finished in the 21st individual spot out of 94 at the completion of the European Championships Jumping competition.

 

Goldstein also brought Dartbreaker, a young rising star, to Aachen. The seven-year-old KWPN (Heartbreaker x Lux) stallion owned by The Rose Group had excellent results throughout the week in several young horse classes.

 

Goldstein intends to keep the momentum she gained from the European Championships going, with an eye on continuing to build her string of young horses and bringing several of her new talents to the World Breeding Jumping Championships for Young Horses at Zangersheide in Lanaken, Belgium, on September 17-20. From there, Goldstein will compete in several tours in southern Europe.

Show Jumper Danielle Goldstein Endorses Omega Alpha’s Natural Equine Health Products

Show Jumper Danielle Goldstein Endorses Omega AlphaNatural Equine Health Products

Toronto, Ontario (April 24, 2015) After being selected as the first-ever winner of the Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award during the 2015 Winter Equestrian Festival, Danielle Goldstein became hooked on Omega Alpha products. Now, she has been selected as an ambassador for the natural equine supplement brand.

The United States and Israeli dual citizen, who competes for the Israeli flag, was given Omega Alpha products as a prize in recognition for her mount Waliba VDL’s excellent condition and performance in the jumper arena. Since then, Goldstein has become a fan of the Omega Alpha product line. “I hope to achieve an ever higher level of health and, subsequently, performance, with all of my horses by continuing to use these products,” she explains. “The products are safe to show on and also highly effective – which is a great combination.”

After winning the Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award, Goldstein continued an immensely successful show season in Wellington— including placing second in the $375,000 CSI5* Grand Prix at the Winter Equestrian Festival on the Swedish Warmblood mare Carisma. Goldstein has now headed to Europe for a full schedule of training and competing. With her Omega Alpha products on hand, she is gearing up for the European Championships in August.

Goldstein’s favorite Omega Alpha product is the HA-180 – a supplement that promotes joint health for active horses.

Patti Hanco, Director of Business Development for the equine division of Omega Alpha, is pleased to share the products with the new Omega Alpha Ambassador. “Dani was so appreciative after being awarded the inaugural Omega Alpha Healthy Horse Award,” she says. “When Dani expressed how pleased she was with the products she tried and her desire to maintain her horses naturally, the decision was made to invite Dani into our Omega Alpha family of elite riders.”

Hanco continues, “Dani has a very hands-on approach to her training, and that is the type of rider who can truly appreciate what we have to offer with our unique line of health and performance formulas.”

Goldstein, of course, is thankful for the opportunity. “I look forward to working with Omega Alpha,” says the successful jumper. “The Omega Alpha line is great for keeping my horses happy and healthy with natural supplements— so I’m thrilled to join a team I truly believe in.” 

Omega Alpha Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a leader in developing natural equine products through research-based science. As the number one supplement manufacturer in Canada, the product line is quickly becoming the go-to for riders in the U.S., including equestrian superstars like Danielle Goldstein.
