Here is the story of Charlotte Dujardin and her loving horse Valegro, also known as “Blueberry”. She is a dressage rider from England and a Olympic Gold Medalist. Together with Valegro they have won two gold medals in London 2012 Olympics.
Charlotte started riding when she was 3-years-old, but her family didn’t have enough money to own horses. She literally accomplished everything with lots of love and dedication, and that’s why she encourages everyone to do what they love.
She was called “the girl of the dancing horse”, and you can see why from the video below. During her training she had to learn her horse to dance and make certain moves, because perfection is what makes the winner a winner!
As she said, she rides 9 horses a day, and train 7-8 hours a day. She shared that she has superstitions and always wears her lucky white britches. The most difficult thing for her was the canter zig-zag, because it requires a lot of preparation and skills.
