Charlotte’s youngsters aren’t overawed at Hartpury
Despite bringing her younger horses to the British Dressage Winter Championships at Hartpury College (12-16 April), Charlotte Dujardin still took home three first places and a second.
The Equipe, Sprenger, Fleck and Konigs ambassador kicked things off on day two with a win in the Elementary Gold Championship class riding Mount St John VIP. Their score of 76.61% was 7% ahead of their nearest rivals. Day four saw Charlotte take first and second place in the Advanced Medium Gold Championship riding Florentina VI and En Vogue respectively before rounding off the championships with another win in the Medium Gold riding Brioso II, a horse she co-owns with Carl Hester.
Despite Valegro’s retirement, it’s clear Charlotte has some really promising youngsters coming through and the future looks bright. Huge congratulations from us all at Zebra!
