    One of the great eventing careers appears set to end

    One of the great eventing careers appears set to end


    60-year-old equestrian rider Andrew Nicholson says his future in five-star events looks over.

    He's won nine of them in a career stretching back to the 1980s.

    Nicholson has been asked if he'll compete at that level again.



    Nicholson's also a three-time Olympic medallist who recovered from a broken neck in 2015.

    He still plans to train and ride horses at a lower level.
