I used to do cross country for school…it was fun until I started riding horses. Watching horse cross country is so entertaining (especially in the Olympics😄)

Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro - Charlotte only began doing Grand Prix dressage in 2011 but by the 2012 Olympics she won not only the first individual Dressage Gold medal winner for BG, but GB's Team won Gold as well for Queen and country!

I think it is absolutely amazing how a horse when doing a half pass all of its legs are on a different track as apposed to say a shoulder in where their legs are on three different tracks or a walk where all of their legs are on one track

fair-winds-and-all-i-see: Happy horse, happy rider. Our London 2012 gold medalist and her amazing horse. I love the story of Charlotte and Valegro. Carl Hester is a champion, too. He took Charlotte under his wing and let her ride his horse to victory. He said he knew Valegro could win a gold medal. He knew Charlotte would be the rider to get it. She has said she owes everything to him. What a great team.
