Double Olympic gold medalist Charlotte Dujardin (GBR), one of the most celebrated dressage riders in history, and her world-famous mount Valegro, will perform at the 2015 Rolex Central Park Horse Show Sept. 25-26. The world’s number-one ranked rider over the last 24 months, reigning European and World champion, as well as 2015 Reem Acra FEI World Cup Final winner, Dujardin and Valegro will be making a rare appearance in front of their North American fans.

Catch Dujardin and Valegro Friday, Sept. 25, in the U.S. Open Dressage Grand Prix at 1:30 p.m. and Saturday, Sept. 26, in the U.S. Open $75,000 Dressage Freestyle, presented by Axel Johnson Group, at 7 p.m. to see if they can beat the world-record scores they have already set in the Grand Prix and Freestyle.

“We are so excited and fortunate to be working with Charlotte, groom Carl and Valegro at the inaugural U.S. Open Dressage event. They are truly one of the great combinations in dressage history,” commented Mark Bellissimo, CEO of International Equestrian Group, LLC (IEG).

Abby Newell, principal of Piaffe Limited and agent for Charlotte and ten other British dressage competitors added, “Mark and International Equestrian Group have been an absolute pleasure to work with on securing Charlotte and Valegro. Both Carl and Charlotte are very aware of how visionary Mark has been in the U.S. and didn’t hesitate for a moment when he invited Valegro to take part [in the Rolex Central Park Horse Show]. Particularly, given the event is in such a stunning and high-profile location, we are all very much looking forward to the show and exploring more ideas on working together in the future.”
