World Gold for Dujardin and Valegro

Double Olympic Champions Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro added a World Champion title to their collection by taking Gold in the Dressage Grand Prix Special Individual competition with an outstanding performance on a score of 86.120%, the highest ever score recorded by a horse and rider at the World Equestrian Games.

In a closely fought contest, Dujardin held on to Gold after a superb test from Germany’s Helen Langehanenberg riding Damon Hill NRW, who finished in Silver on her score of 84.468%.

Charlotte Dujardin (GBR):

“It was a great ride, and I was very happy with my test. I had no team members to worry about; I thought I’d just go for everything. My horse was just fantastic – he is a Ferrari! The crowd was very hard to deal with – all I could hear were gasps, whether I did a good or a bad thing. I could hear the crowd the whole time.”

​Helen Langehanenberg (GER):

“The test felt very good. He always goes forward and listens very well. He is keen on working with me and knows what to do. I did not know Charlotte’s score before I went into the stadium. I was just concentrating on my preparation and test. I am really looking forward to Friday now – he is a very happy horse!”

Kristina Sprehe (GER):

“I am really happy. Coming in to these Games, I was only focused on Team Gold. I had no thoughts for the Individual at all. This is just fantastic, completely fantastic! My horse was perfect in the test, even if during the passages he lost some rhythm and he has to be more energetic. I had a really fantastic feeling during the whole test.”
