  • Charlotte Dujardin fans will be able to get their hands on her autobiography this summer.

    The dressage star has written a memoir on her journey so far, titled The Girl On The Dancing Horse, which will be released in hardback and ebook form on 24 August.

    It has been a dream of mine for a few years now, to one day have my own book and I’m very excited to say that my autobiography that I have been working on, will be released in August,” said Charlotte.

    She has been working with publishing giants Penguin Random House on the book.

    “It has been an incredible journey with so many high points along the way and I never expected to have achieved all I have,” she added.

    “I hope you will enjoy reading about my story through my eyes, one that has involved hard work, sacrifice and commitment to an unshakable dream I had and with a horse I love beyond words.”
