Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro....I think it is absolutely amazing how a horse when doing a half pass all of its legs are on a different track as apposed to say a shoulder in where their legs are on three different tracks or a walk where all of their legs are on one track

Led by the Olympic record-breaking performance of 27-year-old Charlotte Dujardin, Team GB won its first ever gold medal in Olympic dressage. "I wanted the gold medal so badly and I didn't want to mess it up. It is so surreal," she said after winning the gold on Valegro. "I'm just so lucky to be riding Valegro. He is the horse of a lifetime - he finds it so easy," she said.
