Caen, France—Aug. 27
Throughout her Grand Prix Special, Charlotte Dujardin could hear the crowd gasping in unison. They gasped when she earned 10s for her extended trot, and the numbers flashed on the leaderboard. They gasped when her score briefly hovered over 90 percent. Then they really gasped when Valegro stopped before his first piaffe for a brief bathroom break, and then again when Dujardin missed her last two tempi.
