Patrik Kittel joins Global Equestrian Group


Swedish Patrik Kittel is one of the world's most successful dressage riders and has certainly made his mark on the international dressage scene. In his career, he has trained more than 60 horses for Grand Prix, won more than most, and is now ready to take the next step in his career as a part of Global Equestrian Group.


- For many years we have been working together with Patrik and we wanted to include him in the team. Germany is one of our biggest markets and together with Patrik we can now exclusively offer some of our sales horses from Patrik's facilities at Eulenhof in Dülmen, Westphalia. In addition, Patrik will continue to be active in the sport which give us the unique opportunity to offer our clients help at shows to achieve even greater success. And he is just one of the best riders in the world, which is great branding for us, states Andreas Helgstrand.


- It has been an exciting journey and I've enjoyed the freedom of being self-employed. But I miss being part of something bigger, and I'm more than ready to start a new chapter as part of Global Equestrian Group with all the benefits that come with it. I am sure that I can contribute new ideas and offer an exclusive service from my home in Dülmen, where I will continue to stay with my family. And I'm delighted that I can carry on my riding career and compete actively both my own and Helgstrand's horses, says Patrik Kittel.


Patrik Kittel has competed at the European Championships, World Championships, World Cup Finals, Olympic Games as many as three times in addition to achieving numerous victories and placings at national as well as international competitions on horses such as Touchdown, Well Done de La Roche, Scandic, Delaunay, not to mention the three-time World Champion, Fiontini, whom Patrik rode to a victory in his Grand Prix debut after a short period of partnership.


- Patrik is one of the most successful riders and we look forward to strengthening the group with his skills and experience. He brings good business know-how and can add knowledge and ideas that can give another boost to Global Equestrian Group's activities - and he just has a great personality, Andreas adds.


Patrik has bought into Global Equestrian Group, which is jointly owned by Ludger Beerbaum, Waterland Private Equity, the owners of Wellington International (former Palm Beach International Equestrian Center), and Andreas Helgstrand.
