Olympic equestrian, Dani G. Waldman, recently took to her Instagram stories to introduce a guest in a commentator’s seat. “Partner in crime today,” she captioned her story tagging Jessica Springsteen. Adorning a bright smile, wearing an announcer’s equipment, and dressed as an equestrian, Jessica posed for the camera. Dani G. Waldman, who represented Israel in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics is also known for being a sports commentator and host of Horse Bytes, providing every detail on show-jumping.

So if Jessica were to start a new role, Waldman would prove to be the right mentor. But luckily for the equestrian’s fans, Springsteen was in Wellington to do more than commentate. Over the WEF 2 and 3, the Olympian contested multiple times, securing results satisfactory for the hopeful journey ahead.
