The announcement was made at the KWPN stallion show in Den Bosch this weekend. Nick Skelton's fantastic ride has amazed with his jumping and great results. "I want to thank everyone who voted for Big Star. It's a great honor that he's the KWPN Horse of the Year and we're very happy. I'm honored to be able to ride a horse like him," Nick said in a video showed at the ceremony.

Big Star's breeder Cees Klaver was handed the Nimmerdor Trophy and said "If anyone is happy, it's me. Big Star did most of the work. The road is long, but it's a fantastic road. I'm very fortunate; what more could a man want?"
