The winner of three Olympic gold medals with Charlotte Dujardin is now 21 and fed on NAF Five Star Superflex Senior daily.  

As well as winning world and European titles, Valegro still holds the world records in all three grand prix tests, despite retiring from competition in 2016.

The dressage legend remains based at his co-owner Carl Hester’s yard in Gloucestershire where he is exercised regularly to keep him fit and supple. 

“I remember the first time I saw Valegro,” said Carl. “This beautiful dished head came over the door and it’s lovely to see one of his stunning headshots on Superflex Senior.

“Feeding for joint health is crucial for ensuring that we provide the right support for our horses and the Five Star Superflex product range allows us to do just that. 

“Valegro gave us so much throughout his competitive career and Superflex Senior is the supplement of choice for helping him to maintain an active lifestyle as he gets older. 

“It provides the right nutrition at the right levels, giving him flexibility for life.”
