Valegro, raising funds for Riding for the Disabled

Read more ...

Valegro, ridden by Charlotte Dujardin CBE and trained by Carl Hester MBE, has taken the sporting world by storm.


In an unprecedented career Valegro and Charlotte  became the only combination and individuals to ever concurrently hold Olympic, World and European  Gold Medals in the sport of Dressage plus all 3 World Records, and then successfully defend their individual Olympic Gold Medal at Rio 2016. Not surprisingly the combination was repeatedly ranked No 1 in the World, and labelled as 'the best the world has seen'.


Carl was awarded MBE and Charlotte OBE in 2013, with Charlotte being further awarded CBE in 2017 following her and Valegro's 3rd Olympic Gold Medal. Carl was honoured with Fellowship of The British Horse Society (FBHS) in recognition of his outstanding contribution to equestrianism. 


As well as achieving world-wide fame Valegro has been voted this and other Nations' favourite horse. Valegro is now enjoying a very well earned and relaxed retirement from competition.

We hope the opportunity to have this fantastic memento of an outstanding combination of horse, rider and trainer will raise much-needed funds for the Corse Lawn Riding for the Disabled Group, local to Valegro's home.


Beautifully mounted and framed the photograph of Valegro, Charlotte and Carl taken at Valegro's retirement at Olympia has been signed by both Charlotte and Carl,  and Valegro's shoe has been silver-plated.


Valegro's shoes, unmounted or accompanied by a signed photograph as we have here, have previously achieved very good amounts when auctioned for charity, with $7,500 achieved recently in USA.


We welcome your bids for this superb memento and aim to raise as much as we can for Corse Lawn's Riding for the Disabled Group.

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
For example:
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
