CHARLOTTE Dujardin had a very special supporter at Royal Windsor Horse Show last week, in her two-month old daughter Isabella. The joint-most decorated British female Olympian, Dujardin, won both the Grand Prix and the Freestyle to Music aboard Imhotep at the five-star show in front of Isabella and her partner Dean Golding.

On her return to top level competition Dujardin stated: “I haven’t competed for eight months, and Pete [Imhotep] hasn’t done a competition since the FEI World Championships. I have only been back riding for three weeks – so I was worried I would be a bit ring rusty – but he was incredible and was so positive with his energy.

There are still areas that we can improve on which is exciting – we are now aiming for the FEI European Championships this summer.”

Dujardin continued: “I have such amazing memories of Royal Windsor Horse Show having competed here in the showing as a child – it has such a wonderful atmosphere and to be back here is just so special. It is now Isabella’s time to support Mummy and I hope I have done her proud.”
