A quick scan down Enfield-born Charlotte Dujardin’s list of achievements is enough to see that the dressage rider – the most successful British athlete in the history of the sport – is one of the best in the business.
Her finest hour came at London 2012 where she won team and individual dressage gold on Valegro, before the pair defended their individual dressage title and claimed team dressage silver at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games.
Her partnership with Valegro is one that has borne great results, including double world gold and world silver in 2014.
The duo have also triumphed on the European stage, claiming two European Dressage Championships titles in both 2013 and 2015, having won Dressage World Cup gold in Las Vegas earlier that year.
Following a farewell ceremony at Olympia in London, Valegro was retired from competition in December 2016.
Dujardin received an OBE in 2013 whilst also being bestowed with a CBE for her services to the sport in 2017 – that same year, Dujardin Mews, an area of social housing in Enfield, was named after her.
