Carl Hester and Roly Luard, with the approval of the British Dressage Selectors, have entered Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro at Rotterdam, The Netherlands on 19-23 June 2013. It will be Valegro's second competition since winning gold at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and breaking the world record at the 2012 CDI-W London in December 2012. Charlotte will also be competing Uthopia at Compiegne, France (31 May- 2 June), hoping to qualify for the Europeans later this year. If Charlotte obtains the qualification criteria at Compiegne, this will mean that she will have achieved the correct qualifications with two horses in order to be eligible to compete at the European Championships, if selected. Carl has entered Dances with Wolves at both Compiegne and Rotterdam; he has also obtained the qualifications needed to be eligible to be selected this year, with Uthopia, Dances with Wolves and Fine Time IV.
