Charlotte Dujardin confirmed at RWHS

Charlotte Dujardin Royal Windsor Horse Show

As excitement continues to rise for the Royal Windsor Horse Show (10–14 May 2023), organisers have announced their delight that Charlotte Dujardin will be taking part in the Defender CDI4* FEI Dressage aboard the striking chestnut gelding, Imhotep. The class will take place on Wednesday 10 May and Thursday 11 May, and will be the first international competition for Dujardin following the birth of her daughter, Isabella, in March this year.

The Defender CDI4* FEI Dressage runs over two days and will welcome some of Great Britain’s best dressage horse and rider combinations. The Grand Prix takes place on Wednesday 10 May, with tickets for a limited audience available, whilst the Freestyle to Music will be in front of a packed audience on Thursday 11 May. International Dressage was last held at the Show in 2019, where Dujardin rode to victory with the talented Erlentanz.

The addition of Charlotte Dujardin and Imhotep, means that the Defender CDI4* FEI Dressage will be contested by three of the four British FEI World Championship squad who claimed team silver in Herning last summer, and who will now all be looking to impress selectors ahead of the FEI European Championships later this year. 

Show Director, Simon Brooks-Ward, said: 


We are thrilled to welcome Charlotte back to Royal Windsor Horse Show. It is brilliant for the fans to be able to witness such high-quality action at the Show, and with so many of Britain’s top dressage combinations taking part in the Defender CDI4* FEI Dressage it is sure to be a thrilling competition.”

Royal Windsor Horse Show takes place each year in May with over 55,000 visitors attending to view an extensive programme of first-class equestrian competition and performances across five arenas. The 2023 edition, which has Defender as Principal Partner, will take place from 10-14 May. The Royal Windsor Horse Show was first staged in 1943 to help raise funds for the War effort. It is now the only show in the UK to host international competitions in Show Jumping, Dressage, Driving and Endurance.
