Big Star and Nick Skelton began their international campaign in 2010 when Big Star was just 7 years old. This incredible stallion was spotted as a star from the beginning and Skelton’s long-term owners and friends Gary and Beverley Widdowson bought him for Nick to compete. Since then, the pair have rarely had a fence down on the big occasions, winning an Olympic Team Gold in 2012 and narrowly missing out on Individual Gold (Big Star had one rail down in the final round, his only fault throughout the competition). The handsome stallion has won a host of major Grand Prix, including Aachen and Rome in 2013, and Antwerp and GCT Hamburg in 2012.
Big Star is owned by Gary and Beverley Widdowson.
