Dujardin Launches Campaign For Valegro Statue

Charlotte Dujardin has launched a campaign to get her champion horse Valegro immortalised in bronze in their home town of Newent in Gloucestershire.

The double Olympic champions, accompanied by FEI Groom of the Year Alan Davies, went to the twon centre  to meet their adoring public and launch the fund raising. On her Facebok page, Dujardin says, " Thank you to everybody who turned out today as we launched a fundraising campaign to enable a very special commission of a life size sculpture of Valegro, to stand in the town centre of Newent next year to celebrate everything this amazing horse has done for the Dressage. As usual Blueberry loved meeting everyone and nearly took over the interviews with the TV broadcasters. Had to drag him away!! More details on my website on how to be a part of making this sculpture happen if you would like to support."
