Synopsis: It is no coincidence that foreign riders won gold and silver medals in the Olympic Games of 2008 on Dutch horses. This is big business and passionate breeders have everything they need available in the Netherlands, not to mention the crucial factor of good luck, which seems to be another constant in this remarkable story.
Annette van Trigt followed leading breeders of Grand Prix horses around for 3 years. What is their secret? How do they do it? Big Star from North Holland, bred by Cees Klaver, went on to win Olympic gold in 2016, with Nick Skelton from the UK in the saddle.
Semen from a champion horse is worth more than gold as it could potentially produce millions, but that is also a double-edged sword. Which is better, a gold medal winner or a horse with Golden Genes? You can only have one of the two. This documentary shows the painful dualism involved.
