McLain Ward (USA), the newly crowned Longines FEI World Cup champion and two-time Olympic team gold medallist, has reclaimed the world number one spot on the Longines Rankings.

“It is always a great honour to be number one. It reflects the consistency at the top level that we all strive for. Being named number one in the Longines Rankings immediately after my World Cup win is just a great feeling!” McLain Ward comments to the FEI. 

Ward replaces Daniel Deusser (GER), who has held pole position since January and now drops back to rank three. Ward's compatriot Kent Farrington remains as rank two, with Christian Ahlmann (GER) dropping from third to fourth and Eric Lamaze (CAN) holding onto rank five.

Simon Delestre (FRA) stays as rank six, while Kevin Staut (FRA) is up from rank eight to seven switching with Marcus Ehning (GER) who shares his spot on the ranking with Scott Brash (GBR). Rank ten is, like last month, Ludger Beerbaum (GER).
