The Israeli equestrian team failed to qualify for the Tokyo 2020 jumping team finals after rider Teddy Vlock fell off his horse during the qualifiers on Friday afternoon.
Vlock’s elimination came after he failed to complete his run when he fell off his horse, who began to bolt for the exit door.

Vlock, an American-Israeli dual citizen, studied psychology at Yale University, and was chosen to represent the Israeli equestrian team in their Olympic debut after initial pick Daniel Bluman was barred from competing due to his horse being registered as American instead of Israeli.
Both Vlock and his horse are reportedly unharmed.
Despite failing to see success in the team qualifier, fellow teammate Ashlee Bond placed 11th in the individual jumping final on Wednesday.
