MELBOURNE, Australia, April 7, 2014–Charlotte Dujardin, the 2012 Olympic double gold medalist with Valegro, will be the star presenter with her former coach Judy Harvey at Equitana in Melbourne Nov, 20-23, the first visit to Australia for the world’s No. 1 rider.

The 28-year-old Charlotte and Judy will present educational sessions and masterclasses both as a coach and a rider. Charlotte will also judge the inaugural show horse Equestrienne Turnout.

Judy will be on the panel for The Way Of The Horse Challenge, a horse-starting challenge that showcases three of Australia’s leading trainers as they take an unhandled horse and make it rideable.

“I am thrilled to be taking part in Equitana this year alongside Judy Harvey,” Charlotte said. “The event has risen to such recognition over the years and I’m privileged to join a long line of top dressage riders that have presented in the past and to be amongst our Australian supporters.”

Carl Hester, also on the London gold medal team as well as part-owner of Valegro and coach of Charlotte, was a presenter at Equitana Sydney in 2012.
