Nowhere is the adage that truth is stranger than fiction more apt than the life of Nancy Zeitlin, the woman behind the Palestinian Equestrian Team. Ever the rebel, Nancy challenged familial and societal norms. At various points of her life, she was married to a Christian, an Orthodox Jew and finally, a Palestinian. As a single mother, Nancy became a leading figure in the Israeli equestrian world, but a chance encounter with horse-loving Palestinians prompted her to establish the first Palestinian equestrian team. Professionally and personally, Zeitlin continues to bridge religious and cultural divisions in Israeli society, through a love of horses.
