Dujardin gives her top equestrian tips

Dujardin is now the Olympic, European and World Cup champion.

"I am absolutely over the moon," she said. "Winning the Grand Prix and Freestyle at my first World Cup final is just absolutely fantastic. It was so much fun in the arena.

"He (Valegro) gives me so much and that's all you can ask for. It is just fantastic to be able to have him. It's all a dream come true.

"Now that I've done this music once, hopefully it can only get better and I think this one could actually beat my Olympic music."

Gloucestershire-based Dujardin will next target the World Equestrian Games in late August.
