Mr. Jack Seller founded the Jack Seller’s Bexar County Palomino Patrol in 1951 especially for the Grand Entry of the San Antonio Stock Show & Rodeo. It has provided a colorful start for every performance of the rodeo to date and carries the American Flag in a special “Salute to America” presentation. The Patrol is known for its beautiful Palomino horses, silver saddles, and the riders’ rhinestone uniforms which add to the unique look and feel of the Grand Entry.
The Drill Team honors the spirit of Texas heritage by carrying the Texas flag. Members of this team must have excellent horsemanship abilities due to the fast paced action they provide. Their uniform consists of chaps designed in black and silver leather, which match the horses’ tack.
In the past, the Palomino Patrol has served as the color-guard for three gubernatorial parades, was presented to Queen Elizabeth II during her royal visit to San Antonio, has performed for the President of Mexico, and appeared in movies including Selena and Texas Justice.
