The son of an equestrian, Nick began riding at the tender age of 18 months, progressing quickly, and later going on to take two team Silver medals and one individual Gold at the junior European Championships (1974 and 1975). Many years later, he holds the British Show Jumping High Jump Record, which he set in 1978. In a career full of accolades, winning the World Cup Final in 1995 was his most memorable moment. Other highlights include 4 Calgary Grand Prix wins, 3 Aachen Grand Prix wins, 5 Dublin Grand Prix victories and 3 Hickstead Derby triumphs. The most influential people in his career have been Ted and Liz Edgar and his favourite horses are St James, Apollo, Top Gun, Tinka’s Boy, Dollar Girl, Arko, Carlo and Big Star. His advice to other riders is to never give up. He thinks Global Champions Tour ‘should have happened years ago’. Nick added another major triumph to his illustrious show jumping career winning a team gold medal at the Olympic Games in London 2012.
