London 2012: Charlotte Dujardin breaks dressage world record
British dressage star Charlotte Dujardin set a world record for the Olympic grand prix special discipline.
The 25-year-old smashed the previous best by 3% during Sunday's event in Hagen, Germany.
Dujardin, who trains with world number two Carl Hester at his yard just outside Newent, scored 88.022% aboard her Olympics-bound horse Valegro.
The Gloucestershire-based world number five only competed in her first grand prix competition 15 months ago.
Her world record earned her a standing ovation as she surpassed the previous world best held by Dutch rider Edward Gal and the £10m black stallion Totilas.
She was part of a powerful quartet alongside Hester, Laura Bechtolsheimer and Emile Faurie.
