Rio Olympics Updates: Charlotte Dujardin Makes History At Rio

Dressage rider Ms Dujardin became the second British woman to win three Olympic golds by retaining her individual title at the Rio Olympics according to the bbc.

The 28-year-old Dressage rider won two Olympic gold during the London 2012 games, and was hopeful that she was going to complete the feat when she comes to Brazil in 2016, a feat which she eventually completed.

Dujardin, who was born in Enfield and brought up in Hertfordshire, started riding when she was two-years old.

At the age of 16 she had won the Horse of the Year Show competition four times and was a winner at Hickstead on three occasions.

She took up dressage with a horse bought from her grandmother’s inheritance and was offered her first job as a groom in Gloucestershire, where she has remained.

Ms Dujardin holds all three world records in dressage and just this month she also won the Reem Acra FEI World Cup Dressage Final in Lyon.
