Making history in Tryon
Updated: Dec 4, 2018
Only a year after her historic achievement at the FEI European Championships in Gothenburg, where she finished 8th, Dani makes history again, for the Israeli sport.
Israel had, for the first time, a full team competing at a World Equestrian Games.
The team included Daniel Bluman, Alberto Michan, Ashlee Bond and of course Danielle.
"This was a dream come true for me," said Dani after their strong performance, and nearly made it to the top 10 final teams. " I was striving for an Israeli team since I started riding under the Israeli flag and it was a real pride for me to be part of the first Israeli show jumping team in a championship."
But this was not the only proud and historic moment Dani had this WEG as she also made the final as an individual, being also the first Israeli rider to get that high in a World Championship."
Dani was ranked 8th for the final and 3rd on the 3rd competition day and finished her Championship in the total ranking at the 20th place.
" I'm extremely proud in Lizzie. She did an amazing job. I was not an easy week, and she just got back from an injury, and still, she gave me everything." said Dani at the end of this fantastic week.
