Absorbine® Sponsors Charlotte Dujardin

Top-ranked dressage rider partners with The Horse World’s Most Trusted Name®
Absorbine® takes pride in its global presence, providing quality horse care products to 40 countries around the world. This tradition of international excellence has long been present in Great Britain, and now Absorbine is pleased to announce its official sponsorship of British dressage rider Charlotte Dujardin. Charlotte was a European Champion in 2013, and was a double gold medalist at the London 2012 Olympics Games. As the Federation Equestre Internationale (FEI) top-ranked dressage rider in the world, she is now taking her accomplishments to the World Equestrian Games (WEG) in Normandy, where Absorbine will be standing right behind her.
At just 29 years of age, Charlotte has experienced outstanding success in partnership with Valegro, a Dutch Warmblood gelding. The pair currently holds the world record in all three elements of dressage: the freestyle; Grand Prix; and Grand Prix Special. They secured gold medals in both the team and individual events at the 2012 Olympics and were European Champions in 2013. The upcoming World Equestrian Games in Normandy will be Charlotte’s first time competing at WEG, where she will be leading Great Britain’s dressage team.

Absorbine recognizes Charlotte as an ideal ambassador for its worldwide products and presence, and celebrates the opportunity to sponsor her. “We have followed Miss Dujardin’s international success since the London Olympics, and have been very impressed with her routinely elegant performances and unprecedented achievements,” says Chris Jacobi, General Manager, Equine Division at Absorbine. “We are pleased to support her continued success. Even more than her accomplishments, it is her determination, ambition, and unconditional love for a horse that we truly admire.”
Charlotte is a passionate advocate of Absorbine products, and is grateful for the brand’s support. “I am thrilled at this new partnership with Absorbine. I am a strong believer in their products, and it means a lot to have a trusted brand standing behind me as I head to the World Equestrian Games,” says Charlotte. “The best rides start with a horse that looks and feels his best, and Absorbine products help me achieve that.”
The World Equestrian Games kick off on August 23 in Normandy, with dressage competition taking place August 25 - 29. Absorbine is pleased to support Charlotte Dujardin throughout this prestigious international event, and wishes her the best of luck.
