Double Olympic Champion!
Big Star was an exceptional athlete, who, ridden by Nick Skelton/GBR, led the British team to gold at the 2012 Olympic Games in London/GBR at just nine years of age (and an individual fifth place) and who won individual Olympic gold in Rio de Janeiro/BRA four years later. Big Star, who always jumps with a perfect style, has also won the Grand Prix in Aachen/GER, Antwerp/BEL, Hamburg/GER, Wellington/USA and Rome/ITA, the Prize of Europe in Aachen and the Nations' Cup in Dublin/IRL. In Nations Cup competitions, he delivered eleven consecutive clear rounds. Nick Skelton described Big Star as the best horse he had ever ridden, and when Big Star retired from sport, he also ended his long and successful career in show-jumping.
Although he has only been used in breeding sparingly up to now, Big Star has already produced two licensed stallions: Big Star jr./Joseph Clayton/GBR and E-Star. His oldest offspring, such as G-Star ES/Kim Hoogenraat/NED, I-Star/Bianca Schoenmakers/NED und Jay Jay ES/Borja Villalon Puras/ESP, are successful in the Youngster Tour.
Big Star: the name speaks for itself
