This beauty was born on Libaration Day, that's why we called him Patton EH (by Le Formidable). Named after the famous US general George Patton, who played an important role during the libaration of Europe in WWII.
With international top dressage stallions like Jazz, May Sherif, Bordeaux and Ferro in his pedigree, Patton has all that it takes for a promising dressage horse.

His dam line originates from KWPN breeding family 1633.
With a dressage index of 165 (KWPN table 2013), granddam Vidora is in the top 200 of best KWPN dressage mares in her category. Patton's great granddam's dam Rolanda gave the small tour dressage horse Flying Dutchman (by Zevenster), and also the Grand Prix dressage horse Privaldi (by Gribaldi), which holds the 236th position on the WBFSH-list of dressage horses (2012). A full sister of Rolanda's dam Joliza gave the international GP show jumping mare Ferina (by Ramiro).
Patton's great grandsire Jazz has sucessfully shown Grand Prix with two different riders, and more and more of his offspring reach the highest levels in international Grand Prix, like Parzival with Adelinde Cornelissen and many more. From his dam's side Patton also carries the world famous Doruto blood in the 5th generation.
Patton's dam Chivadora is a halfsister to KWPN approved stallion Joyride EH.

Sire Le Formidable was champion of the KWPN stallion show in 2019, he is the 7th KWPN approved son of Grand Prix stallion Bordeaux .
Le Formidable's dam Vienna is also the dam of KWPN approved stallion Four Legends. Le Formidable's granddam Annabel is also the dam of KWPN stallions Bretton Woods and Chagall.
Le Formidable's sire
 Bordeaux won his licensing and his performance test in 2009 and was high placed in the PAVO cup final in 2010. In 2012, ridden by Eva Möller, he was 4th in the finals of the World Championships of 6 year old dressage horses in Verden. In the winter of 2012/2013 he qualified, as a result of his outstanding wins at the KWPN stallion competitions, for the finals of his age group in 's-Hertogenbosch. He was the favourite and won the competition with a clear margin. In 2014 he won international competitions up to Prix St George; in 2015 he achieved his first high placings in Grand Prix classes. With a FN breeding value of 166 points, he is part of the top group of dressage sires in Germany. Bordeaux is bred from one of the most successful damlines in the world: he combines the best of Holstein, Oldenburg, Westphalia and Trakhener genes, he is a direct descendent of Angelo XX's daughter Adone, whose son Rembrandt is a 4 times Olympic gold medal winner. Adone is also a full sister to Olympic gold medal winner Ahlerich, and Olympic silver medal winner Amon. Bordeaux was decorated KEUR at the KWPN stallion show in Den Bosch in 2020.
Le Formidable's grandsire Olympic Ferro is one of KWPN's foundation stallions, having more than 10 licensed sons, of which Kennedy, Rousseau, Rhodium and Negro (sire of Valegro!) are the most famous.
