Wellington, Fla. – March 27, 2019 – Micah Deligdish, a young dressage professional who offers high-quality training, coaching and sales services, is excited to announce her new partnership with Destiny (Diamond Hit-Midt-West Regina, Rubinstein), a 16-year-old Danish Warmblood gelding owned by Diamante Farms. Owned and previously shown by Diamante Farms’ Devon Kane, Destiny has been a regular in the CDI arena since 2012 and campaigned the Grand Prix at venues such as the Adequan Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) and in Falsterbo, Sweden. Most recently, Kane competed Destiny in the CDI3* during the eighth week of the 2019 AGDF.
“I am so excited for this opportunity, and I’m really thankful to Devon [Kane] and my trainer Nicholas [Fyffe] for their support,” Deligdish said. “We have big goals ahead, which include qualifying and competing at the European Championships this summer. I am really looking forward to developing my partnership with Destiny and seeing what we can accomplish together in international Grand Prix competition for Israel.”
The 27-year-old dressage rider began her competitive career with success as a pony rider throughout her junior and young rider years. After studying journalism in Washington, D.C. at the American University, Deligdish decided to focus solely on her dressage training. A United States Dressage Federation (USDF) bronze, silver and gold medalist, Deligdish trains with Australian international Grand Prix competitor, Nicholas Fyffe of Marcus Fyffe Dressage. Based year-round in Wellington, Florida, Deligdish trains with positive enthusiasm as she takes the next step into international competition representing Israel.
“I knew when I decided to make my international debut it would be for Israel,” Deligdish explained. “To represent the State of Israel is an honor and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream.”
Most recently, Deligdish competed in the CDI ring representing Israel aboard her horse Santos, an 11-year-old Westphalian gelding, at AGDF. As she begins a partnership with her new Grand Prix mount, Destiny, she has her sights set on the European Championships and the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
