Horse & Country is very excited to bring you Valegro’s Farewell, a compilation of all our favourite memories of the world’s greatest dressage horse.

We have been so lucky to be a part of Charlotte and Valegro’s journey together. From their masterclass with Carl Hester back in 2008, to Valegro’s retirement at Olympia last month. We have been there, every step of the way – mic in one hand, camera in the other, hankies at the ready (if only we had three hands).

Valegro’s Farewell features exclusive interviews, footage of Valegro at home and away, and a lot of tears. It’s our way of saying goodbye to a very special friend of the show. Dressage will never be quite the same without him.

Watch Valegro’s Farewell on H&C Play and Sky 253 when it premieres on Tonight at 9pm. This unique tribute captures our fondest memories of the world’s greatest dressage horse and waves him a teary goodbye.
