GPA Helmets Sponsors Goldstein

Danielle Goldstein of Starwyn Farms in Wellington is a part of a select group of athletes underwritten by one of the top equestrian safety wear designers in the world, GPA Helmets.

Goldstein, whose goal is to become the first woman to ride for Israel on an Olympic show jumping team, has been taking the international show jumping world by storm, most recently through her participation on the first-ever team representing Israel in the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center.

Goldstein’s unique equestrian accomplishments have not gone unnoticed by GPA Helmets, which has only partnered with 20 international riders around the world since becoming the first riding helmet designed to meet both European and American safety and performance standards. “It’s a great fitting helmet. I’ve been using GPA since they first came on the market, and used my newest carbon one in the Nations Cup,” she said.

GPA’s breakthrough safety design was created by noted 1960s racecar driver Michel Finquel. Tired of losing friends to fatal racing accidents, Finquel designed the first fire-resistant driving suits under the NAZA brand. Years later, when Finquel’s daughter started riding horses, he saw that she too needed top protection and dedicated himself to the research and design of the safest-possible riding helmet.
