'Truly one in a million', 'He has it all' and 'Genius in an athlete's body' are just a few of the comments describing the one and only Valegro. 

With three gold medals under his belt partnered by Charlotte Dujardin, he has now been officially retired from competition. The sport's most successfull partnership performed at Olympia last night, 14th December 2016.

Although Valegro will no longer compete, he will continue to give celebrity appearances and demonstrations. Charlotte is currently campaigning several potential successors for Tokyo 2020, including Mount St John Freestyle. 

To add to an already emotional evening, sponsored rider Carl Hester, Charlotte Dujardin's team-mate, metor and co-owner of Valegro, danced to victory for the second night running in the freestyle aboard Nip Tuck with a score of 84.669%.
