Nominations for Reem Acra Fei World Cup Dressage Leg at Olympia Horse Show Announced.
The world’s most successful dressage partnership, Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro are amongst the nominations for the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Leg supported by Horse & Hound at Olympia, The London International Horse Show on 16-22 December 2014. It will be the first time Valegro has competed in the UK this year.
Dujardin, who was crowned Sunday Times & Sky Sports Sportswoman of the Year yesterday, last competed on Valegro in the UK at Olympia Horse Show in 2013. The formidable pair not only won both the World Cup Grand Prix and Freestyle but sent the Olympia audience into raptures by setting a new freestyle World Record with their London 2012 routine. Since then, Dujardin has added even more titles to her already impressive record, by winning the Reem Acra FEI World CupTM Final in April before taking the World Championship title in Normandy in August.

Great Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro were like an unstoppable force as they marched to another spectacular victory at the fifth leg of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage Western European League series in Amsterdam, The Netherlands today. With a mark of 91.275, the Olympic double-gold and individual European Championship winning partnership were 2.7 points short of the world-record Freestyle score they posted at the previous leg at Olympia, London in December. But today’s result underpins their position at the very top of their game, and sets them firmly on the road to the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage Final at Lyon, France in April.
