Equestrian World Rankings

Here are the up-to-date rankings in the world of dressage and showjumping.

In dressage the World Rankings remain relatively unchanged with Edward Gal still dominating top-spot.  In fact, the Netherlands are making their presence felt, taking up four of the top ten placings.  Germany isn’t far behind with three placings, however two of those are taken by none other than Isabell Werth.  The rankings should see some changes when the competition calendar opens up again and Totilas debuts under his new rider, Matthias-Alexander Rath.  All eyes will also be on Edward Gal and his latest acquisition, top ranking German young horse, Lissaro van de Helle.

The World Showjumping Rankings (or Rolex Rankings) were a more mixed bag in terms of nationalities and it’s certainly nice to see an Aussie in there as well!  Marcus Ehning managed to overtake Eric Lamaze in the rankings from last month.
