Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro Sweep the Boards at the 2012 CDI Hartpury! Hartpury College hosted a CDI Festival of Dressage on 4-8 July, which turned out to be a fantastic show, despite the best efforts of the British weather. The Gloucestershire venue held six CDI3* classes, attracting riders from all over the world for their final Olympic preparations, including the entire Canadian Olympic team. However, it was the British riders who dominated by winning each class during the event. The first CDI3* class took place on Friday morning, getting off to a great start with the Prix St Georges. Carl Hester and the imposing Donnerschwee gelding Dances With Wolves made the most of an early start finishing first with 75.605%. The Eilbergs took second and third place in a close call: Michael in second with the Corland-sired Torino (69.842%) and Maria in third with the Jazz gelding U-Rockstar (69.763%).Check out the full story at Eurodressage.com!
