Patrik Kittel, a Swedish Olympian and Trainer of the Year 2014, has launched a brand new website to mark the beginning of his 2016 show campaign which should lead up to the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
As member of the Swedish team at the 2015 European Championships in Aachen, Kittel assisted his team mates Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfven, Emiie Nyrerod and Minna Telde to secure a team berth for Sweden at the Rio Olympics by placing fifth in the team ranking and scoring 74.571% in the Grand Prix.
2015 has been an incredibly successful year for Patrik, so far. With Marie Haward's 11-year old Deja (by Silvano x Don Schufro) he closed the summer season ranking 11th on the FEI World Dressage Riders Ranking. On his 2011 European Championship kur bronze medal winning horse Scandic (by Solos Carex x Amiral) he swept the board at the 2015 CDIO Rotterdam, winning the Grand Prix with 77.260% and the Kur with 81.875%. Aboard the rising Grand Prix star Delaunay, a 9-year old Oldenburg gelding by Dr Doolittle x Feinbrand owned by the Oatley family, Patrik won four international classes in a row at the CDI 3*s in Vidauban and Falsterbo.
Based at Marianne and Rudolph Tecklenborg's gorgeous estate "Haus Giesking" in Nottuln, Germany since 2005, Kittel runs a small, private sales and training stable called "Outstanding Stables." He has 20 stalls for his own horses, his clients' as well as a select group of high quality, international calibre sales horses.
Kittel is very active on his website and social media. He regularly posts updates of the performances of his students and horses as well as training videos at home. He loves to stay connected with his fans and offers the public a view into his stable and daily life.
