Carl Hester Receives Queens Award

What an honour: At the Royal Windsor Horse Show at the weekend, Carl Hester received an award in honour of his achievements for the equestrian sport from the Queen herself. “I’m extremely proud,” the British dressage rider posted on his Facebook page. Hester was not only a member of the gold team at the Olympic Games in London 2012 with Uthopia, he also coached his pupil Charlotte Dujardin with his co-owned horse Valegro in the team and to individual gold.
