Watch: Olympic Champion Big Star as an 8yo

The superstar stallion Big Star won gold medals at the London and Rio Olympics with British rider Nick Skelton, as well as capturing some of the major titles of the sport such as the Grand Prix in Aachen. Both horse and rider retired from the sport in 2017. But what did Big Star look like at the age of eight? Pretty spectacular. Here he is winning a 1.45m class in Wellington.
