GBR's Charlotte Dujardin ended up the most successful rider at the World Equestrian Games, after securing three medals - two individual golds, plus the team bronze in Dressage. (Note: Dressage is the only discipline with two individual events at the Championships). Her medals helped also put GBR at the top of the golds list at 7 (Netherlands won the most overall, with 18) - helping to prove that the London Olympics home success for GBR has carried over to subsequent years nicely, based on similar success at the Rowing Worlds, too. Over the 28 total events at the Equestrian Worlds, 17 different countries won at least one medal - including Qatar, Singapore, and the United Arab Emirates. As for Dujardin, she is now the reigning Olympic, World and European champion and is the only rider in history to hold all three titles. As well, she's the world record holder for scores in both Dressage events. And, oh, she's got an OBE, too.
