6:46pm Sunday 8th September 2013 in News
DOUBLE gold medalist, dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin, has visited an equestrian centre that is blazing a trail in the UK in breeding top horses for the sport.
The London 2012 gold medal winner visited the Mount St John equestrian centre in Felixkirk, North Yorkshire on Saturday (September 7) as it held its first open day.
The stud farm began building up its business specialising in the breeding of potential top class international dressage horses about two to three years ago.
It is now believed to be breeding top dressage horses on a size and scale which is unique in the UK.
Run and owned by Emma Blundell, the stud uses the best sporting bloodlines available worldwide and also has an embryo transfer unit run by top reproductive vetinerary specialists.
Charlotte Dujardin, who is currently ranked world number one dressage rider and a double Olympic Gold medalist, joined other international dressage riders and sports horse breeders from across the continent for the open day.
They included international dressage rider and trainer Emile Faurie, who was one of the guest speakers at the event.
