Charlotte Dujardin partnered Valegro to individual and team dressage gold at London 2012

Triple Olympic champion Charlotte Dujardin's horse Valegro will be retired from competition at December's 2016 London Horse Show at Olympia.

The pair retained their individual dressage gold at August's Rio Games.

Dujardin - who revealed in 2015 that Valegro would be retired after Rio 2016 - told BBC Points West last month: "I owe it to him to finish at the top.

"I want everyone to remember him as the horse he is - a hero. What he has done for the sport is truly inspirational."

The meeting at Olympia will take place from 13 to 19 December.
