The 14-year-old KWPN gelding Zinius (Nabab de Reve x Kannan) holds on as world no. one on the latest WBFSH Rolex World Ranking List for breeders of jumping horses, the second of this year.

With 1115 points, Zinius  – that is bred by Mario Everse and competed by Harrie Smolders – is followed by Henrik von Eckermann's ride Toveks Mary Lou (Montendro x Portland L) on 996 points. Toveks Mary Lou, a 12-year-old Westphalian mare, is bred by Hubert Nienhaus.

Marcus Ehning's 15-year-old Westphalian stallion Cornado NRW (Cornet Obolensky x Acobat) is down one spot to rank three, on 971 points. Cornado NRW is bred by Antonius Schulze-Averdiek. The 12-year-old SLS stallion Breitling LS (Quintero x Accord II), that won the Longines FEI World Cup Final with Beezie Madden in the saddle earlier this year and that is bred by the La Silla-stud, is rank four. Rank five is Daniel Deusser's 15-year-old Westphalian gelding Cornet D'Amour (Cornet Obolensky x Damiani), bred by Alfred Niehoff. 

On the studbook ranking, KWPN keeps its top rank with Zinius, California (L'Esprit x Libero H) and Bintang II (Kitile Horta x Orlando) as their three best representatives. With 4602 points, the KWPN is followed by the Westphalian studbook on 4395 points with Toveks Mary Lou, Cornado NRW and Cornet D'Amour as their three top ambassadors. Chacanno, Royce (Cafe Au Lait x Grandilot) and Carlotta 232 (Chaccomo x Cento) put the Oldenburg-International studbook third as their three highest ranked horses.
