Dujardin and Valegro make it a back-to-back Reem Acra double in Amsterdam

By Louise Parkes

Great Britain's Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro were like an unstoppable force as they marched to another spectacular victory at the fifth leg of the Reem Acra FEI World CupTM Dressage Western European League series in Amsterdam, The Netherlands today. With a mark of 91.275, the Olympic double-gold and individual European Championship winning partnership were 2.7 points short of the world-record Freestyle score they posted at the previous leg at Olympia, London in December. But today's result underpins their position at the very top of their game, and sets them firmly on the road to the Reem Acra FEI World CupTM Dressage Final at Lyon, France in April.
