Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – August 14, 2016 – The final day of dressage competition at the 2016 Rio Olympic Games will be held on Monday, August 15 with the individual final. Eighteen combinations from Friday’s Grand Prix Special qualified for the competitive Grand Prix Freestyle competition which will determine the individual medalists.
Representing the United States, Steffen Peters and Four Wind Farm’s Legolas 92 will be first down centerline and Germany’s Isabelle Werth and Weihegold OLD will be the final rider to compete in the Grand Prix Freestyle.
Charlotte Dujardin, the reigning individual gold medalist, seeks to defend her title from the 2012 London Olympics.
“I’m really looking forward to the freestyle,” Dujardin said. “Valegro and I love doing the freestyle. We have new music. I’ve ridden through it once, so hoping it will go to plan. All I want to do is go out there and enjoy myself and give Valegro the best time he can have and hopefully come back with a medal.”
