In the wake of his Olympic victory Nick Skelton’s ride Big Star arrives home to a beaming welcoming committee.


Nick Skelton and Big Star took the individual gold medal in the Olympic show jumping at Rio.

Following their spectacular win and a long journey home, Nick Skelton’s loyal groom Mark Beever unloads Big Star back onto home soil. On taking his final leap off the lorry in front of his emotional and happy supporters, Big Star’s eyes were firmly fixed on the grass before going into his stable, showing it’s clear he’s not fazed by the attention he’s created after winning.

Congratulations on winning gold!
