With such a large following, one of Britain’s most loved combinations have been enjoying some relaxing time in Florida for the start of the 2014 season. Considered one of the strongest combination for Britain’s hopes for glory at the World Equestrian Games this summer in Normandy, France, many have been asking how Big Star is coming along down in Wellington, Florida. “We’re taking it easy,” says Nick today in Florida. “I’ve been showing him a bit and he feels good” says Nick, who clearly has no intention of rushing anything with his Olympic mount. Big Star, who has been slowly coming back to competition, following his major Aachen Grand Prix last year, has been seen here and there in the Open Jumper division, outside the International arena.
Speaking with Nick, it is clear that the living legend intends on keeping a low profile during the 2014 FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival, taking his time to bring Big Star back into international form, as he looks at a demanding five-star season in European including a busy Global Champions Tour season, Nations Cup demands and the World Equestrian Games to think about in August, not to mention defending his title in Aachen for the Rolex Grand Prix this summer.
We look forward to seeing Nick and Big Star back in the international ring soon.
