Six of the best for champion Charlotte at Winter Dressage Championships


Charlotte Dujardin reflected on yet more success at Hartpury after winning six classes at the NAF Five Star Winter Dressage Championships.

Exciting youngsters Hawtins San Floriana, River Rise Escarla and River Rise Nisa chalked up two victories apiece for the world and Olympic champion over the five days.

“I’m delighted with all my horses, they’ve all done fantastic performances,” Charlotte told British Dressage.

“I couldn’t really ask any more of them, especially considering where they are in their training and their age. I’m really, really happy with them.”

She added: “I’ve had these horses from when they were three, four years old, and worked up with them, so for me it’s just like putting another pair of shoes on.

“You just change your shoes and off you go because I just fit in with them, I know them so well.”

Hartpury Equine is again looking forward to hosting three showpiece summer events – the Hartpury Festival of Dressage (4-8 July), the Hartpury Showjumping Spectacular (20-22 July) and the NAF Five Star International Hartpury Horse Trials (8-12 August).
