Led by the Olympic record-breaking performance of 27-year-old Charlotte Dujardin, Team GB won its first ever gold medal in Olympic dressage. "I wanted the gold medal so badly and I didn't want to mess it up. It is so surreal," she said after winning the gold on Valegro. "I'm just so lucky to be riding Valegro. He is the horse of a lifetime - he finds it so easy," she said.

I love watching show jumping. When I watch the Olympics my stomach goes to my throat when they go over the big jumps.

Dujardin and the GB team won gold in the dressage team event, which was impressive for obvious reasons, but I was doubly impressed that she wore a HELMET and not the traditional hat. Hopefully more people will recognize that helmets won't affect your score and safety is more important than looking cool.
