Adam J. Prudent

Born in 1989, Adam is Franco–American and based in Wellington, Middleburg (USA) and Rosières (FRA).

He started to compete in France in children’s classes, was French champion “cadet” in 2002 with BELLONE D’IDEAL and member of the French junior team. He took some time off from riding in his late teens, but after, realized how much he missed it and wanted to further pursue riding as career. Getting back in the saddle, he climbed the ranks and did his 1st CSI5* in 2013 with JACK DANIELS. 

Among all the horses he rode successfully, a particular attention is paid to his good BALOUTINUE. In april 2021, they won the CSI4* GP 160 in Wellington. The gelding was then bought by Laura Kraut and only four month later brought the silver medal in jumping team final at the Olympics Games in Tokyo.
