Charlotte Dujardin was the youngest member of the British dressage team for London 2012 and was a member of the quartet that won European Championship gold in 2011. Her interest in dressage took her to Carl Hester, who she joined on the British team for 2012, in 2007 and after lessons he offered her a full-time position working for him.
As a trainer herself she has worked with multiple world and Olympic champion eventer Mark Todd. Dujardin and Valegro set a new Grand Prix Special world record of 88.022 per cent in April and recently broke the British record for the Grand Prix Freestyle in July with 90.65 per-cent.
At the 2012 Olympics in London, Dujardin won gold in Individual Dressage and gold in Team Dressage with partners Carl Hester and Laura Bechtolsheimer.
