The countdown is on. Just over a month remains until three-time Olympic gold medallist and world record holder Charlotte Dujardin returns to Canada. Caledon Equestrian Park will host the two-day dressage masterclass October 20-21, offering the rare opportunity for 1,200 spectators to meet the champion in person and learn from her first hand.

Dujardin will showcase her successful training and teaching methods from the basic levels all the way to Grand Prix as she puts a selected group of top Canadian dressage riders and their horses through their paces each day. Spectators will have the chance to meet the British superstar in person at daily autograph sessions, and may even be treated to a demonstration ride.

Based on the unprecedented success of a similar masterclass the park hosted last year featuring Dujardin’s mentor and Olympic champion teammate Carl Hester, Caledon Equestrian Park CEO Craig Collins is anticipating a sell-out crowd for this unique event.

“Last year’s master class with Carl Hester showed us there is a huge appetite for world-class learning opportunities among Canadian dressage riders and fans,” said Collins. “It is an honour for Caledon Equestrian Park to welcome Charlotte Dujardin here for what will certainly be another unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to attend in person.”

A limited number of daily auditor and VIP table packages remain for the event. Auditors will enjoy grandstand seating and a selection of breakfast items, sandwiches and refreshments to choose from. VIP tables offer ringside viewing for 10 people, a breakfast buffet with pastries, muffins, and refreshments, gourmet catered lunch and free parking.

All spectators will have access to daily autograph sessions with Charlotte Dujardin and a vendor village featuring a selection of tack, apparel and equipment retailers. Tickets and tables may be purchased online at www.CaledonEquestrianPark.com/CharlotteDujardin.

Charlotte Dujardin, CBE, is one of the world’s most decorated athletes in the sport of dressage. Best known for her partnership with the renowned gelding Valegro, the pair holds three Olympic gold medals, the world record scores in all three Grand Prix dressage tests (Grand Prix, Grand Prix Special and Grand Prix Freestyle), and four consecutive World Cup titles. This week she is representing Great Britain at the World Equestrian Games on her rising superstar Mount St. John Freestyle.
