This year’s Bolesworth International CSI **** will have a golden glow with confirmation that Great Britain’s Olympic title-winning dressage and showjumping teams from London 2012 are to be reunited.
Olympic dressage champions Charlotte Dujardin, Carl Hester and Laura Tomlinson will lead a stellar entry in an eagerly-awaited freestyle to music class on Thursday, June 16 – Bolesworth’s opening day – with Hester confirming he will be aboard likely Rio Olympics horse, Nip Tuck.
And the thrills do not stop there, as Nick Skelton is among the showjumping entries with brilliant stallion Big Star, when he will be joined by London team-mates Scott Brash and Ben Maher, while the fourth member of that quartet, Peter Charles, will be at the picturesque Cheshire venue supporting his rider daughters Scarlett and Sienna.
Dujardin is the reigning Olympic, World and European individual champion, while she also holds all of dressage’s world records aboard the brilliant Valegro.
Her Bolesworth appearance comes less than three weeks before the Great Britain equestrian team for Rio is scheduled to be announced.
