The world’s top-ranked dressage competitor donated a number of equestrian memorabilia to a charity auction that benefits working equines around the world.

Charlotte Dujardin donated 13 items — including a pair of Kerckhaert shoes — that were worn by Valegro at the 2012 Olympic Games when the pair won team and individual gold.

Money raised from the The Brooke equine charity auction will help almost 2 million working horses, donkeys and mules, living in some of the world’s poorest communities.

“Becoming a global ambassador for The Brooke,” Dujardin says, “has been one of the greatest things I have ever done.”

The auction, which closes Sunday, Jan. 3, 2016, raised more than $8,000 in its first 2 days.
