The Horse with a Heart of Gold Wins Grand Prix Special for Britain’s Dujardin
Posted by

 

Medal winners on the podium after the thrilling Dressage Grand Prix  Special at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games.

In a competition that buzzed with excitement from start to finish, Great Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro claimed Dressage Grand Prix Special gold at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Normandy, France, today. It wasn’t a flawless performance from the dynamic British duo, with mistakes that Dujardin afterwards described as “silly," but such was the quality of the rest of the work she produced with her extraordinary gelding that she still headed silver medalist Helen Langehanenberg with Damon Hill NRW, whose German team-mate, Kristina Sprehe, earned bronze with Desperados FRH.

“We made three expensive mistakes and I thought ‘Oh it’s cost me the medal!’, so I knew after each one that I had to go for a bit more to try and catch up on what I had already lost,” she said afterwards. “But he's such a fantastic horse, he's got a heart of gold. If I need to go for a bit more he tries to go for a bit more, he never says no I can't do it,” said the rider who now holds the Grand Prix Special title at Olympic, European and World Championship level.

They almost fell victim to their own enormous popularity however, as Dujardin found the enthusiasm of the spectators in the D’Ornano Stadium quite distracting throughout her test.

Germans Prove Untouchable for Dressage Team Gold
Posted by

Germany claimed the Dressage team title in convincing style at the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ 2014 in Normandy, France. Already out in front after their first two riders completed their tests yesterday, they nailed it with two more superb performances to finish well clear of Great Britain in silver medal spot, while the defending champions from The Netherlands took bronze.

The morning began with a superb performance from the third to go for Germany, Isabell Werth and Bella Rose whose score of 81.529 signalled the definitive return of Team Germany to the top of the pecking order in this sport in which they have always played such a dominant role. They never looked in any danger after that, and Helen Langehanenberg’s 81.357 with Damon Hill NRW was just the icing on the cake because, even without her brilliant effort, her country would be victorious.
