At the 2023 FEI Dressage European Championships, Team Great Britain, led by the accomplished equestrians Charlotte Dujardin and Charlotte Fry, affectionately known as Lottie Fry, secured the gold medal in dressage. This dynamic duo’s accomplishment marked a significant milestone for the country.
Charlotte Dujardin rode Imhotep, a talented 10-year-old equine. Imhotep is jointly owned by Charlotte Dujardin and her mentors, Carl Hester and Coral Ingham. During the competition, Charlotte Dujardin displayed an impressive performance, achieving scores that surpassed 80%, making her one of the standout performers in the championship. Her performance not only propelled her to lead the individual standings but also significantly contributed to Great Britain’s lead in the team standings.
What makes this victory even more remarkable is the fact that Charlotte Dujardin became a mother early in the year, which kept her away from consistent riding during the winter. Her comeback and success in the championship demonstrate her dedication and exceptional skills in dressage.
The British team, backed by Carl Hester, also demonstrated their strength in the competition, garnering impressive scores that solidified their lead in the team standings. This achievement is a testament to the commitment and talent in the sport of dressage in Great Britain.
