The girl on the dancing horse is back with her long-awaited new freestyle routine! Charlotte Dujardin rode Mount St John Freestyle in the Superflex Grand Prix Freestyle (kind of confusing, I know) on Saturday June 6th at the Hartpury Festival of Dressage CDI3*. Charlotte and the 10-year-old mare blew the competition out of the water with an 87.6%. Second place Hayley Watson-Greaves and Rubins Nite earned a 77.96%.
Charlotte’s new kür was initially meant to be debuted last September at the World Equestrian Games, but Hurricane Florence forced the cancelation of the dressage freestyle competition that Sunday — the same day that eventing stadium jumping was slotted to take place. Where eventing’s final phase was reschedule to Monday, the dressage freestyle could not be rescheduled. Therefore Saturday evening at Hartbury was the first time Charlotte and Freestyle danced to their new Frozen-inspired music.
Saturday’s routine was dedicated to the late Roy Burek, Chairman of Charles Own helmets, whose memorial service was held the same day.
