Rolf-Göran Bengtsson continued to top the Rolex Ranking – for a fifth month in a row! Ludger Beerbaum is now ranked as number two in the world, and has pushed Eric Lamaze down to rank three. Pius Schwizer has rocketed from rank nine to four, and Marco Kutscher has also lifted himself from seven to five. Edwina Tops-Alexander is another rider that has climbed; she has gone from ten to six on the latest ranking. Kevin Staut is down from rank five to seven, a spot he shares with Nick Skelton. Steve Guerdat has jumped up from rank twenty to rank nine, and is back in the Top Ten this month – while Patrice Delaveau makes an appearance among the Top Ten at rank ten after some fantastic results this season.
Outside the Top Ten Rich Fellers – winner of the Rolex FEI World Cup Final – has jumped from rank 33 to rank 12, while his compatriot McLain Ward is out of the Top Ten. As is Chritian Ahlmann, who was rank four on the last ranking – and who has now dropped down to 21.
