The Valegro Story by Carl Hester

The end of the fairy tale. In a series of three special features for The Gaitpost, Ellie Kelly chats to Carl Hester, Alan Davies and Charlotte Dujardin ahead of Valegro’s retirement at the London International Horse Show at Olympia. 

In their heartfelt words, we learn more about this incredible team and what the future holds without Valegro. Carl reflects on the journey from finding and buying Blueberry as a two year old, to that final salute at Rio and how this extraordinary horse “literally skipped his way to Grand Prix.”
