Charlotte Dujardin enjoyed a wonderful Wednesday at the Equerry Bolesworth International Horse by winning a remarkable four classes in eight hours.
The celebrated double Olympic dressage champion thrilled her audience thronged around Bolesworth’s International Arena by landing the feature grand prix class, two young horse competitions and the day’s closing Intermediate Freestyle to Music event, sponsored by The Brooke.
It was a second triumph of the week for the eight-year-old mare Florentina, following an impressive victory in Tuesday’s opening Prix St-Georges.
Gloucestershire-based Charlotte showed no sign of a long day’s competition after being drawn last to go among 13 starters, enjoying a winning margin of almost seven per cent.
Britain’s Michael Eilberg led the way with Daltrey up until Charlotte’s test, scoring 73.475 per cent, but Charlotte’s class and the star quality of rising prospect Florentina provided an impressive mix.
They scored 80.375 per cent to take the class in style, while third place went to Hong Kong’s Jacqueline Wing Ying Siu on Jockey Club Fuerst on Tour, with Becky Moody and Eureko finishing fourth.
