Biography

Charlotte DUJARDIN

After teaming up in 2012, British dressage star Charlotte Dujardin and her mount Valegro enjoyed a near invincible partnership. Their telepathic understanding yielded two individual Olympic titles and a team gold, as well as individual and team doubles at the 2014 Worlds and the European Championships in 2013 and 2015, not to mention three world records.

Born on 13 July 1985 in Enfield, near London, but brought up in Hertfordshire, Dujardin took up riding aged two and was 13 when he first tried her hand at dressage, a discipline in which rider and horse must complete a series of complex moves, such as the tempi, zig-zag, piaffe and pirouettes.

Hailing from a modest background, but competing in an expensive sport, she bought her first Grand Prix horse, Fernandez, in 2007, thanks to money left to her by her late grandmother. It was at that stage that she took up dressage competitively, having earlier aspired to be a jockey.
