Dressage Gold For Great Britain: Dujardin leads the Dressage team


2012/09/02



by Louise Parkes

Great Britain’s Dressage riders scooped Olympic team gold August 7, 2012. The previous day the equestrian venue at Greenwich Park resounded to the wild roars of the home crowd as their jumpers topped the team podium for the first time in 60 years. This day the team of Carl Hester, Laura Bechtolsheimer and Charlotte Dujardin brought  spectators to their feet in celebration of the first-ever British Dressage medals in the history of the Games.

They began the day with a narrow lead over Germany, whose fantastic record includes team gold at the previous seven Olympics  and, once in front, the London 2012 host nation riders just didn’t let go. The star of the show was 26-year-old Dujardin who sealed the result with a fabulous ride on the 10-year-old Valegro.

Germany had to settle for silver, while The Netherlands took bronze
