I can’t help but fangirl a little over the stunning Big Star, and apparently neither can eventer Doug Payne:

The problem with having so many riders in the jump-off is the won’t all get medals, but they all deserve one #EquestrianJumping #Rio2016 — Robyn Law (@LeFailFish) August 19, 2016
We’re glad you spent some time with us at Horse Nation during the 2016 Rio Olympics, and we already can’t wait until Tokyo in 2020. In the meantime — go riding!
