The Olympic Games in Brazil have come to an end, with some great results for our sponsored riders. We are astounded by the efforts they all put into their jobs, and even more for the results they get by their hard work, ambitions and humility.
Charlotte Dujardin, her whole team (including the worlds best Groom, Alan Davies!) and her extraordinary horse Valegro took individual gold and left us, and the rest of the equestrian nation in tears of joy as she rode of the court after a spectacular performance. We have the deepest respect for what they have accomplished together.
We are so proud to have such a talented rider and person with our Kingsland Team.
To ITV News Charlotte said: “It was like he held my hand”. We believe that he did! Charlotte is truly a fantastic rider, so proper respect definitely go to her as well. Watch part of the interview via this link!
Another interview was the very candid one with Valegro. He did not seem quite as impressed! Very funny! Read it HERE Luckliy he seemed a bit more happy when he came home and got to kick back in his yard!
The British team ended second and won the silver medal. Congratulations!
In the same final, Laura Graves and Verdades took a deserved fourth place with 85.196%. This was both their first Olympics and their highest score ever in both the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Special. So impressive and also wonderful to see the companionship Laura has with her horse.
The USA team ended on third place earning them the bronze medal.
Another rider who delivered a fantastic performance was the Danish rider, Anna Kasprzak. Anna and Donnperignon ended with an individual 14th place. As proud sponsors of the whole Danish Equestrian team who ended on a 6th place, congratulations are in order to you as well!
So you can se how lucky we are with such talented riders!
