At the London Olympics in 2012, a horse stepped into the equestrian arena and made history.

That horse was Valegro and, after years of training by Carl Hester, he and his rider Charlotte Dujardin rode to win the first Olympic gold medal ever for a British dressage team.

Greenwich 2012, the Olympic games in London. Charlotte Dujardin enters the ring riding the Dutch Warmblood Valegro for the individual dressage event. The pair had delivered a routine with a score of 90.089 per cent. It was an Olympic record.

. This is the story of how an outsider and an unconventional horse changed the world of equestrian sport.
