THE golden girl of British Dressage, Charlotte Dujardin is to compete at this year’s Equerry Bolesworth International Horse Show.
But that’s not all, spectators will also get the rare chance to see her training and producing her young horses during a masterclass with her mentor, trainer and great friend Carl Hester.
Famed for her legendary partnership with Valegro who helped launch the new Bolesworth International CDI*** at Carl’s yard in Gloucestershire earlier this year, Charlotte has a team of young horses showing huge talent for the future.
Said Charlotte: “Bolesworth is an amazing venue with the castle providing a stunning backdrop and I am very much looking forward to competing and also supporting Carl during the masterclass.
“This new CDI*** on British soil is very exciting for the sport and the whole dressage community is backing this new venture and the foresight that Nina Barbour has in putting on more dressage over the first two days.”
This year’s event takes place from June 14 to 18 in the stunning grounds of Bolesworth Castle near Tattenhall, Chester.
Dressage fans can enjoy watching top horses and riders over the first two days of the show, with the competition focus getting underway on Wednesday, June 14 with a 12noon start, the CDI*** Grand Prix at 2pm, followed by the Carl Hester demonstration and the Inter 1 Freestyle at 6pm.
Thursday, June 15 promises a full day of thrilling competitions, starting at 9am, with the Prix St George invitational event, the 5, 6 & 7-year-old Future Dressage Horse Competitions, which will be viewing trials for the World Breeding Championships, the Grand Prix Special – and then culminating in the early evening Freestyle Final.
