Great Britain Takes the Gold in Team Dressage

Great Britain is on a roll!  Not only did they take the gold in the team show jumping, but they have just won the gold in the team dressage event!  Germany took the silver, and the Netherlands took the bronze.  Carl Hester, Laura Bechtolsheimer, and Charlotte Dujardin stood atop the podium to receive their gold medals.  This was Dujardin’s first Olympics, and it was her ride on her 10-year old mount Valegro that secured the gold.  “He is a once in a lifetime horse, he is unbelievable, just very special,” she stated.  The U.S. finished in 6th.  The individual round will be on Thursday.
