fair-winds-and-all-i-see: Happy horse, happy rider. Our London 2012 gold medalist and her amazing horse. I love the story of Charlotte and Valegro. Carl Hester is a champion, too. He took Charlotte under his wing and let her ride his horse to victory. He said he knew Valegro could win a gold medal. He knew Charlotte would be the rider to get it. She has said she owes everything to him. What a great team.
MARCH 15, 2012 The Duchess of Cambridge traded in her blazer and heels for Adidas sneakers and a hoodie to participate in Great Britain’s hockey team’s training session. After all, she was a field hockey star in high school!
