Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro - Charlotte only began doing Grand Prix dressage in 2011 but by the 2012 Olympics she won not only the first individual Dressage Gold medal winner for BG, but GB's Team won Gold as well for Queen and country!

For his tricks or for pain. He may be up like that to do a trick. He is only obeying the pain of the bit so he can get it off. This sport is too intense for any animal.
