UK Partner Rider Dujardin to Compete in New YorkBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · August 13, 2015
British Olympic dressage gold medalist Charlotte Dujardin and her popular partner, Valegro, will be crossing the Atlantic once again, this time to compete in the Rolex Central Park Horse Show, to be held September 25-26 in New York City.
The pair will contest the Open Dressage Grand Prix and the $75,000 dressage freestyle. Dujardin most recently competed in the U.S. at the Reem Acra FEI World Cup, held in Las Vegas in April. At that event the pair scored a 94.196%. Limited tickets are available for the Central Park event.
Dujardin is sponsored by Saracen Horse Feeds, a Brand Alliance Partner of Kentucky Equine Research based in the U.K. Partner horse feeds incorporate custom blends of KER’s own micronutrient ingredients, designed to deliver the optimal amount and proper balance of critical vitamins and minerals to each class of horse.

“I have been based with Carl Hester for many years and all I have ever known him to feed is Saracen,” Dujardin said. “All the horses look great, perform to the best of their abilities, and keep level heads and great overall condition. Saracen offers different diets for all manner of horses from fizzy to laid-back, and the nutritionist comes to see us regularly to check they are all on form. I just wouldn’t even consider feeding another brand of feed. A performance animal is like a finely tuned race car – it needs top-quality fuel.”
