Animo on Tuesday posted photos of the clothing of the Israeli team that will compete in the Olympic equestrian competition and was attacked by pro-Palestinian protesters.

Among the comments on the social media posts were "Shame on you," "Free Palestine," "We will never buy anything from you," and dozens simply posted comments with Palestinian flags, with the moderators deleting dozens of comments, but the attack on them continues.

The Israeli athletes who shared the post commented and raised it with an Israeli flag, and in response many also added their opinions and responded to the post itself.

This is a very important competition for the Israeli team. After the historic performance of the jumping team in the equestrian competition at the Tokyo 2020 Games, an Israeli team will compete for the first time in history in the Criterion Dressage competition for the Paris 2024 Games.

Israel has never had an Olympic representation in dressage. In fact, Israel has never had four riders and four horses at the Grand Prix level so that such an opportunity (to be included in an Olympic criterion competition) could exist.

For the first time in history, the Israeli dressage team will compete in the Nations Cup competition in dressage to be held in Budapest, Hungary from June 7-10. The pairs representing Israel include cyclist Gon Schulte (23) with mare Bona Kiki, rider Amit Kubus (20) with horse Cupido, rider Nicola Ahorner (23, Austrian with an Israeli passport) with horse Henderson and rider Maika Deligadish (33, American with Israeli citizenship) with horse Handsom C.
