Carl Hester ‘Charlotte & her big mouth’


Yesterday, Charlotte Dujardin announced her top ‘Valegro’ would retire after the Olympic Games in Rio next year. But today it emerged Carl Hester was “not amused” with the statement made by Charlotte. 

“It’s the first time I hear it,” said Hester, who co owns ‘Valegro’ with  Roly Luard and Anne Barrott.

Hester has not made any new decisions about his wonder horse’s future and was initially unaware of where the story had originated. However, after speaking to Charlotte, it transpired she had “got a bit carried away” on a day’s filming for Road to Rio with the BBC.
“As far as I’m concerned, nothing’s changed,” said Carl. “It’s just Charlotte and her big mouth.

“The plan is still for him to go to the Olympics and, even if he did retire after Rio — which is not definite — he would do Olympia in December as another show before retiring properly.”

“That’s the plan we’ve had all along, and we’re sticking to it,” he added.

“I’ve spoken to Charlotte and mentioned that it would have been nice of her to consult me!”
