Charlotte Dujardin is the most successful dressage rider in British history. She started riding at age 2, and continues to this day – she is only 33, so should have a good long career ahead of her! She is most well known for winning Gold in both the single and team dressage events the 2012 Olympics on Valegro, a horse with whom she set world records and dominated the dressage scene. Valegro has since retired, but Charlotte’s career continues. Definitely, one to watch out for at all future major equestrian events!
