The Moment: The Queen Meets Valegro

Royal Windsor Horse Show 2019

A dressage ‘King’ met the Queen at Royal Windsor Horse Show in 2019 when superstar dressage horse Valegro, and Olympic riders Charlotte Dujardin and Carl Hester were introduced to Her Majesty on Grenadier Avenue.

Carl Hester was reported as saying, “The Queen was absolutely delightful, very chatty and pleasant. She’s very informed and she knows Valegro and loves him. She was very complimentary about him and asked what he was doing now in retirement. Charlotte said she was very welcome to have him to hack around the park, but she said she was quite comfortable on her Fell pony, thank you.”
