Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro are back on the competition scene after crushing another world record at Olympia last month. This time, the pair competed in the fifth leg of the World Cup Dressage Western European League in Amsterdam, winning the Reem Acra World Cup Qualifier on a score of 91.275. While Charlotte and “Blueberry” did not break their own record this time (their score this weekend was 2.7 points short), the dazzling pair still plans to head to the final showdown of the World Cup tour in April in France. What makes this particular win even more impressive is that Charlotte was not even able to ride Valegro in the final weeks leading up to competition. Charlotte was out of the country traveling for several weeks, and Carl Hester kept Valegro in work. The bond that these two have is truly remarkable and a pleasure to watch.
