Charlotte Dujardin and her young olympic debut horse Gio, whos stable name is Pumpkin, then went on to win an individual bronze medal making her the most decorated female GB olympian of all time. With 3 golds, 1 silver and 2 bronze medals over 3 games. She won two golds in London 2021 and a gold and a silver at Rio in 2016 riding the wonder horse Valegro who is now retired from competition.
Charlotte Dujardin said “To come away with another medal and be among so many other incredible, inspiring women – I’m so happy.”
“I just went out there knowing I wasn’t going to go down without a fight. But I also wanted to enjoy it out there and have fun, and I really did. This might be bronze, but he gave me absolutely everything and he’s a winner in my eyes,” said Charlotte. “I’m so proud of what Pumpkin has done tonight.”
“I really filled the floorplan to make it as hard as possible; he is a real trier and I knew he could cope, but to be honest it was like the blind leading the blind in there,” Charlotte laughed.
Congratulations to our dressage Team GB!
