Charlotte Dujardin & Valegro win at the World Equestrian Games- watch their winning freestyle!

Winning is only half of it.
The other half is fun.

I think this quote sums up the relationship between Charlotte and Valegro. They are such a winning combination and work really hard but at the end of the day they really seem to enjoy what they are doing. That is so important and I admire them for that. I loved their music, a dramatic celtic theme that matched his bouncy, yet floating gaits. Her choreography was clean and fairly predictable but I prefer that over a choppy test that seems to try too hard. Her last piaffe pirouette was unique and his tempi changes were beautiful. Congratulations Charlotte and Valegro!
