Sponsors Rally as Danielle Goldstein Prepares to Compete for Israel at 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games

Wellington, FL (July 22, 2014)International show jumping’s Danielle Goldstein has hit a number of milestones in 2014, and now she adds yet another to the list with her qualification to compete at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games for Israel.  A dual citizen of both the United States and Israel, Goldstein will travel to Normandy, France in August to ride for her country against the best horses and riders in the world. 

Goldstein has been driven in her goal to be the first female to ride for Israel on an Olympic team, and competing at the World Equestrian Games is a major step towards achieving that goal.  With the success of qualifying now in her rearview mirror, she realizes that the road to the World Equestrian Games is far from over.  She and her horses have been competing in Canada on the prestigious Spruce Meadows and Thunderbird circuits, keeping the horses at their peak and preparing for the trip to France.

Goldstein, who rides out of her own Starwyn Farms, is backed by a team of sponsors and supporters that she knows make her success possible. “This truly is a team effort, and everything has to work together, from vets and farriers, proper equipment, mentors, grooms, feed, and attire.  There is no detail that can be overlooked, and I am forever grateful to my team of professionals at Starwyn who look after my horses and make sure they are in top form, and to my team of sponsors, including CWD saddles, Choice of Champions International, Neue Schule bits, Draper Equine Therapy, ThinLine, GPA helmets, Charles Ancona riding jackets, and 2kGrey riding pants.” 

The Wellington, Florida based equestrian has been very active on the international scene: serving as chef d’equipe on the Team Gold medal winning Israeli show jumping squad at the 2013 Maccabiah Games; kicking off a successful season at the 2014 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival with a win at the $10,000 Welcome Stake Grand Prix; and her appearance on the first-ever team representing Israel in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup at Wellington’s Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

In addition to her active international competitive career, the dynamic rider and trainer also continues to oversee operations at her Starwyn Farms facility, draw support and contribute to a growing equestrian community in Israel, and train and teach horses and riders all over the world.

Neue Schule’s Danielle Goldstein Qualifies for World Equestrian Games for Israel 

Wellington, FL (July 18, 2014)– Neue Schule’s riders are known in the industry for their success in the arena and innovation out of it.  Danielle Goldstein is no exception to this rule, and she has just hit another milestone in her show jumping career as she is now qualified to compete for Israel at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian games in Normandy, France.  A pioneer for equestrian sports in both the US and Israel, Goldstein is a dual citizen and currently competing her string of horses in Canada before heading to Europe to prepare for the Games this fall. 

Following an impressive winter season at the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington and a spring season competing in Israel at the National Championships, she will now bring a challenge to some of the best show jumpers in the world in France. During her season in Wellington, 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.  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.

She has had a number of top finishes during her time in Canada at Spruce Meadows and Thunderbird Horsepark, including top ten finishes in classes ranging from the 1.35M to internationally ranked CSI 5* Grand Prix.  For training her horses and schooling at home and on the road, Goldstein prefers the Neue Schule Verbindend snaffle and Neue Schule Waterford Universal, both of which fit exceptionally well in the horses’ mouths and deliver an unparalleled level of communication.

Mette Larsen of Metlar Performance Saddlery, Neue Schule’s U.S. and Canadian distributor, is proud to continue to support Goldstein.  “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.”  

Neue Schule offers a range of high performance, comfortable bits that are ergonomically designed, using the latest in engineering and computer aided design (CAD) technologies and incorporating a unique metal alloy with the highest thermal conductivity of any bit on the market, and no bioactivity to eliminate taste.  These features promote comfort, relaxation, and softness in the horse’s mouth.

Neue Schule has also made it easier for all riders to select the perfect bit by including informational tags on each product. These new product tags act as a guide to help select which bits are best to create a better platform for the rider-horse connection, and help address and solve potential problems each individual horse may be experiencing.

Neue Schule Bits Welcomes Two New Ambassadors: Laura Graves and Karen Pavicic

Riverhead, NY (July 14, 2014) Internationally recognized dressage riders Laura Graves and Karen Pavicic know that their success is due in part to pairing their incredible talents with outstanding tack, equipment, and horses. While maneuvering their mounts through the show ring, both Graves and Pavicic trust the Neue Schule bits in their horses’ mouths to allow fluent communication between horse and rider. Metlar, LLC, the North American distributor for Neue Schule Bits is proud to announce the addition of Laura Graves and Karen Pavicic to the company’s line-up of talented Neue Schule Bit Ambassadors.

Graves and Pavicic are avid supporters of Neue Schule Bits, as well as outstanding dressage riders. Laura Graves recently achieved a place on the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games (WEG) United States Dressage Team based on her stunning performance at the 2014 U.S. Dressage Festival of Champions in Gladstone, New Jersey. Graves and her horse Verdades placed second to Neue Schuele Ambassador, Steffen Peters in the Grand Prix. Graves was first introduced to Neue Schule Bits by Olympic Bronze Medalist and USEF Developing Coach Debbie McDonald, who was impressed by the bits when she was introduced to them by Barbara Biernat of the Horse and Rider Boutique. Graves and her equine partners fell in love with the comfortable, soft bits. She’s been a proud Neue Schule customer ever since. The young equestrian is now in Europe along with the rest of the United States Dressage Team short list members, several of whom sport Neue Schule Bits.

Neue Schule Bits is also enthusiastic to welcome Karen Pavicic to the company’s impressive team of ambassadors. The Canadian equestrian has already made her mark overseas, recently placing third in the Grand Prix at the at the CDI4* in Achleiten, Austria. Pavicic and her fellow Canadian Dressage Team members earned Silver Medals at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Pavicic has been a longtime user of Neue Schule bits, and plans to continue riding with these beautifully made bits throughout her future as a dressage champion. Pavicic is now focused on doing her best while representing her country along with fellow Neue Scheule Ambassador, David Marcus, on the Canadian Dressage Team at the 2014 Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games in Normandy, France in August.

“Our ambassador team is made up of top professionals who believe in these bits and see the advantages of using them. We are so proud to welcome Laura Graves and Karen Pavicic to the team,” said Mette Larsen of Metlar.

For equestrians who want to find out why top riders such as Graves and Pavicic are so dedicated to these bits, the Horse and Rider Boutique (with locations in both Florida and California) offers a Neue Schule bit bank. Equestrians can use the bit bank to borrow Neue Schule bits for a trial period to experience the Neue Schule bits for themselves.  Neue Schule is certain that riders who participate in this trial will not be disappointed, as Neue Schule’s attention to detail and advanced design increase comfort for the horse and improve communication for the rider.

In addition to the ergonomic fit and advanced design, Neue Schule’s bits are constructed of a patented metal alloy called Salox Gold®.  This unique metal gives Neue Schule’s bits unique properties, including the highest thermal conductivity of any bit, meaning the metal quickly reaches the same temperature as the horse’s mouth.  It also creates no bioavailability, so there is no taste for the horse, which promotes comfort, relaxation, and softness in the horse’s mouth. 

All of these properties combined create Neue Schule’s legacy of exceptional bits for all disciplines of riders. Neue Schule’s dedication to creating the best bit on the market stems from the goal of improving communication and performance for both horse and rider, and many of the top professionals in the world have discovered the Neue Schule advantage.  With the addition of Pavicic and Graves, Neue Schule continues to build their following of international riders and provide the best bits on the market to equestrians around the world.
