Count Me In (Count Grannus x Sherlock Holmes) tops the first WBFSH Breeders Ranking for 2022, which includes counting results for the period from 1 October 2021 to 30 April 2022. 

The 15-year-old Hanoverian gelding, bred by Friedrich Luessmann and ridden by Conor Swail, has taken over the number one spot on the first WBFSH ranking list for breeders of jumping horses of the year with his 1015 points. 

Rank two is the 11-year-old KWPN mare Glamour Girl (VDL Zirocco Blue x Caletto I), bred by Stoeterij Gaesbeek V.O.F. and competed by Henrik von Eckermann, with 995 points. Conor Swail does not only have one horse in the top three, but two, as the 13-year-old Selle Francais gelding Vital Chance de La Roque (Diamant de Semilly x Rivage du Poncel), bred by Marie Bourdin, is ranked third with 971 points. Rank four on 959 points is Henrik von Eckermann's star partner King Edward (Edward 28 x Feo), a 12-year-old BWP-gelding bred by Wim Impens, while the 17-year-old Selle Francais stallion Rouge de Ravel – bred by Jean-Noel and Priscilla Pottier and competed by Guy Williams – sits fifth with 950 points. 

The breeder rankings are published monthly from the April extraction cycle onwards. At the end of the cycle, the breeder of the horse with the most points in each discipline is crowned WBFSH Breeder of the Year for each respective discipline. The top breeders are celebrated during the Longines WBFSH Breeder Awards.

For the studbooks, BWP leads the way with 4483 points, with King Edward, Joyride S (Toulon x Pachat II) and Igor van de Wittemore (Cooper vd Heffinck x Orlando) being their best three horses. Stud Book du Cheval Selle Français follows in rank two on 4458 points, with Vital Chance de La Roque, Rouge de Ravel and Billabong du Roumois (Mylord Carthago *HN x Papillon Rouge) as their three best ambassadors. Rank three is KWPN, that has a total of 4214 points – with Glamour Girl, Faltic HB (Baltic VDL x Concorde) and Ginger-Blue (Plot Blue x Royal Bravour) being their top three horses.
