Dujardin Wins Freestyle At Olympia
Charlotte Dujardin has won the international dressage Grand Prix Freestyle at Olympia on a final score of 87.975% riding the talented Valegro who performed the freestyle routine that won the pair gold at the London Olympics.
In second place on a score of 80.075% was Germany's Isabel Werth, riding Don Johnson FRH who's performance was rewarded by an enthusiastic and well deserved applause from the crowd of this packed out arena.
Carl Hester was riding the super talented Uthopia for the last time in competition and put forward an exceptional test to finish in third, with the audience at Olympia giving the pair an incredibly emotional standing ovation for what has been an incredible year for this popular and respected pair.
The evening offered several impressive combinations that included Michael George Eilberg riding the stunning grey mare Half Moon Delphi who's test showed this beautiful horse off to great effect to finish in 5th place on a final score of 76.225% improving on their position and score from 8th on the previous day, all in all making them a very exciting pair to watch on the road to the Rio Olympics.
Another masterful display was given by Edward Gal (NED) riding the super talented yet relatively inexperienced Glock's Undercover who performed some incredible movements showing just how much power, scope and incredible rhythm this flamboyant horse has.
