Charlotte and Imhotep win Dressage Future Elite Class at HOYS

By Equestrian Life

Great Britain’s most decorated female Olympian, Charlotte Dujardin, has won the Dressage Future Elite Class at the prestigious Horse of the Year Show in Birmingham, UK, with up and coming star Imhotep (Everdale x Vivaldi).

Charlotte and the impressive eight-year-old, who is owned by Carl Hester and Coral Ingham, scored a staggering 84.62% to claim the win.

‘Pete’ as he is known around the stables also wowed crowds recently at the British National Championships at Small Tour level.

The Dressage Future Elite Championship at HOYS is aimed at promising young dressage horses aged between eight and 10 years old, with all of them performing an Inter I freestyle test.

Charlotte has dominated the class in recent years, winning on the last five occasions.

In 2016 she won with Hawtins Delicato on a score of 78.62%, in 2017 she won with Mount St John Freestyle on 75.152%, in 2018 she won with Florentina on 79.12%, and in 2019 she won with Mount St John Valencia on 78.041%. HOYS did not run in 2020 due to Covid-19. Imhotep’s score of 84.62% tops Charlotte’s previous four winners, so the gelding certainly looking like an exciting horse for the future!
