Werth and Weihegold Old have held the number one position for almost two years, when they took over from fellow German Kristina Bröring-Sprehe in November 2016.

This ground breaking change to the top spot has now pushed them back to second place with a total of 2713 points.

Werth can be found in three more positions in the ranking list, at third with Emilio 107 (2680 points, previously ranked 2nd), at fourth with Bella Rose 2 (2586 points, previously ranked 51st) and at 11th with Don Johnson FRH (2291 points, previously ranked 8).

 

THE WEG was an opportunity for several combinations to move up in the rankings, with Charlotte Dujardinof Great Britain and Mount St John Freestyle moving from 10th to 6th place (2416 points), while American Kasey Perry-Glass and Goerklintgaards Dublet jumped from the 20th to the 14th position (2267 points).

A number of other well-known combinations have soared into higher ranking positions this month, with Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl of Germany and TSF Dalera BB moving from the 53rd to 22nd position (2148 points) and Great Britain’s Carl Hester and his mount Hawtins Delicato made an enormous leap from the 130th to 23rd spot (2145 points).

Hans Peter Minderhoud of the Netherlands) with Glock's Dream Boy N.O.P. previously ranked 211th managed to get to 41st place (1891 points), and Sönke Rothenberger of Germany with Cosmo 59 jumping to 43rd place from 256th (1884 points).

As the FEI Dressage World Cup™ Western European League starts on Oct. 17 in Herning, Denmark, we will no doubt see some dramatic changes throughout the season, as these top international Dressage riders give good chase and maintain their world ranking positions.
