Dujardin partnered Valegro to victory in London as the two performed to movie themes including The Great Escape and Live And Let Die.

"He's got to stay fit and healthy and get ready for the flight," she said. "It's a 16-hour flight and he needs to acclimatise.

Riding Valegro always makes you smile so I enjoy it."
