Charlotte Dujardin and her horse Valegro have won the dressage Grand Prix Special at the World Equestrian Games. Dujardin’s score of 86.120% gave her a good margin over Germany’s Helen Langehanenberg who recorded 84.468% for second.

The score was the highest ever achieved by a horse and rider in that event at a World Equestrian Games.

“It was a great ride. I had no team members to worry about, I thought I’d just go for everything,” Dujardin told the BBC.

Dujardin and Valegro had already helped Britain team silver in Normandy on Tuesday, which also guarantees Britain’s place at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
