Big Star is one of the most influential performance stallions of the decade. Ridden by one of the top equestrians in the world, Nick Skelton, the pair have won many of the most prestigious show jumping competitions in the world.

The British rider discovered the talented bay as a youngster in the Netherlands and trained him through Grand Prix level. He has been quoted to admit that, “Big Star is the perfect horse and one of the best he’s ever ridden”. The Quick Star son has more than lived up to his name and developed into a top show jumper in a league of his own. In 2012, Big Star proved his excellence at all the top show jumping events in the World. At the Olympic Games in London, Big Star had only one rail down the final day of competition and was awarded 5th place individually, and because of his numerous clear rounds early in the week, was the anchor for Great Britain to secure the Team Gold. His success at the Grand Prix of Aachen earned him the Preis Von Eurpoa or The Prize of Europe. Other major successes include wins at the Grand Prix in Antwerp, Global Champions Tour in Hamburg, Grand Prix in Rome, and numerous Grand Prix wins in Wellington, Florida. 2014, Big Star finished 3rd in the Global Champions tour in Cascais, Estoril and 4th at the CSI4* Grand Prix in Fontainebleau. Big Star's most impressive accomplishment is winning Great Britian, the Individual Gold Medal at the 2016 Rio Olympics with his accomplished equestrian, Nick Skelton.

Big Star has very promising young progeny in Europe, as well as his first U.S. foal crop right here at Spy Coast Farm in 2015. Spy Coast Farm is honored to have been granted the exclusive opportunity to offer this top stallion to American breeders.
