Equestrian: Charlotte Dujardin wins gold at European Championships

August 27, 2013

Great Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin won freestyle gold at the FEI European Championships in Denmark yesterday, adding to the European individual dressage title she also won on Friday.


On board ten year old Valegro the double Olympic gold medallist achieved a score of 91.250 per cent setting a new European Championship freestyle score.

“I had great fun, I absolutely loved it. It was amazing,” said Dujardin afterwards. “He (Valegro) has given me everything this week, and I am just absolutely over the moon.

“The performance felt much better than London. He just felt fantastic out there, but I had no idea the crowd would start clapping before the end. They don’t normally.

“Every time he went in there he gave me his best this week, and that is all you can ask for as a rider. I just cannot ask any more of him.”
