SALUT is definitely the best moving stallion on this continent today. He descends from a long line of outstanding dressage horses.
His sire SULTAN was ridden by Dr. Reimer Klimke. His grand sire, PATRON, is regarded as the most important upgrading post-war sire in the Trakehner breed. He had the reputation as a sure producer of very ride able dressage horses. PATRON sired many states premium mares and 13 approved stallions including PASTERNAK, who is approved for Rheinland and MACKENSEN, who himself was champion of his 100 day test in Neumunster in 1978 and produced a number of approved stallions, such as CHARLY CHAPLIN, CHANTILLY, ELIGIUS, SAMURAI, VELASQUEZ, MEPHISTOPHELES, he also produced some phenomenal sport horses like EPSILON, PALADIN 63 and PLEASE ME to just name a few.

On SALUT'S mother's side, he goes back to KASSIO, the most important representative of the famous ABGLANZ bloodline. KASSIO produced 13 approved sons like GRIMSEL, GRISET, GREGOR and GELRIA.
