This young stallion has been bought along very slowly with the current emphasis on his flat work.  We have not really jumped him a whole heap yet due to his age.

Bullet is the only palomino in the world by the 2 times Olympic champion Big Star....winning gold medals in London in 2012 and Rio in 2016.

Big Star became one of the greatest showjumping stallions following his gold medal in London 2012 & Rio 2016. In 2017 he was made an ambassador of the BWP Studbook & Nick Skelton himself has referred to Big Star as “the best horse I have ever ridden”. This prolific Olympic stallion has had outstanding pregnancy results for the last 5 years with foals selling for record breaking prices in auctions both in the UK & in Europe, making him an excellent choice for any showjumping breeder. Sired by Quick Star, who ranked 3rd in the WBFSH sire rankings 2013. Quick Star, ridden by Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum, has wins at Grand Prix of Maastricht & Munich. Quick Star’s sire, Galoubet A is the leading sire of the French Studbook. He won an incredible 19 Grand Prix titles in his career. Galoubet, also the father to Baloubet Du Rouet, who won the team bronze in the Sydney Olympics then won individual gold in Athens. His dam, Stella, 7/8th Anglo-Arab, jumped on the international circuit with Nelson Pessoa. His dam, Jolanda, competed in ZZ-level show jumping. Her sire, Nimmerdor, known to be the foundation sire of the VDL Stud & gained “The Stallion of the Century” in 2000. He was ridden by Albert Vroom & successfully competed in many World Cups, & International Competitions, including the Los Angeles Olympics in 1984. Nimmerdor has 50 approved sons including Ahorn, Daimler, N-Aldato, DBH Heartbreaker, Zadock, Nandor Fortuna and Coronel.

Chico D'Oro was a very well performed stallion by Chris Chugg back in the 80's.  He was a wonderful and very versatile stallion who was a champion show jumper and very talented at just about everything he did.

Chico D'Oro (foaled in 1969) - one of Australia’s premium stallions who truly was Mr Versatile! He won in all disciplines himself and produced top class performers who did the same. Chico was 6 times Royal Show Champion - 2 Sydney, 2 Brisbane, 2 Melbourne - as well as National Supreme Champion Palomino. He competed and won to Medium level Dressage, had 2 ODE starts (under Dennis Piggott) and won both. He then went to Showjumping – his major talent - where he won many Grand Prix events, was long listed for the Montreal Olympics in 1976 and was 3rd in the pre-Olympic trial in 1976. It was as a sire that Chico really made his mark, siring Champion Showjumpers, Palominos, Eventers, Dressage horses, Hacks, Western Horses and Campdrafters.

Highroll Roll The Dice was also an amazing show jumping horse.  He is still alive and has produced many great showjumpers and eventers.

This young stallion has an awesome temperament...very active, intelligent and cheeky, but not naughty.  He has been very well handled and has very good manners.  I simply cannot ride them all so he is available to the very best of homes only.
