About Patriot

‘Ticks all the boxes for a GP prospect’

Patriot is a talented showjumper that stands out for his enormous scope and flashy way of finishing the jump. In addition, he has got a fantastic balanced canter, an excellent rideability and a high level of carefulness. His sire Oklahoma van de Zelm is breaking through at Grand Prix level and is a son of top 5* stallion Kasanova de la Pomme. Dam Vagrusa H already produced three international Grand Prix showjumpers and granddam Ragrusa H was herself a 1.60m showjumper with Switzerland’s Barbara Schnieper. Given his promising damline and his own exceptional talent, Patriot ticks all the boxes for a Grand Prix prospect.
