Dujardin Wins Olympia Grand Prix
The first day of competition has been incredibly exciting with Britain's Charlotte Dujadin riding the ever popular Valegro wining the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Qualifier at London International Horse Show, Olympia on a score of 84.447% well above the rest of the field.

Valegro who is owned by Carl Hester and Mrs R Luard performed a superb test with Isabell Werth (GER) and Edward Gal (NED) left second and third respectively. Isabell Werth's striking bay horse performed a solid test that gave them a score of 76.362% and Edward Gal showed his considerable talent and skill riding the excitable black gelding Glock's Undercover who's score of 76.128 left them just behind Isabell Werth.

Sweden's Minna Telde finished in fourth riding the stunning black 11 year old Stallion Santana and Sidsel Johansen (DEN) finished in 5th riding Schianto.

The biggest upset of the evening was Carl Hester's ride Uthopia who despite finishing on 71.128% did not perform quiet such a polished performance, however tomorrow's freestyle is definitely going to be something special.
