Nick's favorite Walsh Products are the Sheepskin Fleece Girths because as he says "They are soft on the horse and great to wash, just throw them in the washing machine!"
Nick won the gold medal in the 2016 Olympic Games with his amazing Stallion BIG STAR. Check out the video below...
Nick is a world-renowned show jumping rider whose career has spanned nearly 38 years, winning thousands of classes and hundreds of Grand Prix events, and over £6.5m in prize money. He brings his brilliance to the show ring not only when he competes, but also as a trainer alongside Kraut. Nick has become a legend in the sport, consistently rising to the top of the standings.
Nick holds the British equestrian high jump record, when he jumped over 7'7" on Lastic in London back in 1978 and has competed at seven Olympic Games. He has won 10 European Championship medals, six World Championship medals, a World Cup title and over 60 major Grand Prix titles. Other highlights include four Calgary Grand Prix wins, three Aachen Grand Prix wins, five Dublin Grand Prix victories and three Hickstead Jumping Derby triumphs.
In September 2000, Nick broke vertebrae in his neck and was forced to retire from show jumping in 2001. Spectating didn't suit him so Nick made a determined recovery and bravely returned to the competition arena. A few spectacular horses later, Nick added another major triumph to his illustrious show jumping career, winning a team gold medal at the 2012 Olympic Games in London. After his 2012 Olympic gold medal, Nick was awarded an OBE (Officer of the Order of the British Empire) by Her Majesty The Queen.
