Dressage World Cup champion Charlotte Dujardin and ValegroCongratulations to Charlotte Dujardin, who this year defended her World Cup title, leaving her fellow competitors in her wake in Las Vegas (16-18 April). Riding her long-time partner Valegro, the pair posted an unassailable 94.196% — just shy of their own 94.3% world record, which they set at Olympia in December 2014.

On the home front, Becky Moody is the 2015 winter champion. She rode Julie Lockey’s Carinsio to win both the intermediate I freestyle and the prix st georges at the NAF Five Star British Dressage at Hartpury, Glos (15-19 April). Their 79.25% was a record score for the intermediate I freestyle.

British Dressage continues to enjoy a successful period on the international stage. Charlotte remains on top of the world with the wonderful Valegro. She became the first ever dressage rider to concurrently hold double Olympic, European and world titles at the 2014 World Equestrian Games.

In other good news for the sport, the UK is set to hold more CDIs on home soil in 2015 than ever before.
