With Germany sitting 1-2 in the new global rankings, there is also good news for the United States, as Americans Kent Farrington and McLain Ward both move up a spot among the elite of international show jumpers. The two U.S. riders are now in third and fourth respectively. France’s Simon Delestre has taken the biggest fall among the leading pack, dropping 3 spots to #5. The native of the Lorraine region in the northeast of the country is a bit the victim of his own successes in December, 2015 (second in the Top Ten Final and Grand Slam in Geneva, Switzerland) which vaulted him up the leader-board at the start of last year.His recent strong performances with Chesall Zimequest and Sultan du Château were not sufficient to keep up that pace and maintain his runner-up position in the latest results.In contrast, Delestre’s countryman Kevin Staut rises two places, to #6, while Germany’s Marcus Ehning — nicknamed ‘the Centaur’ for his near-perfect riding style — holds on to his #7 ranking.

Canada’s Eric Lamaze drops two spots to #8 despite his fantastic win at last month’s Top Ten Final in Switzerland, while Great Britain’s Scott Brash — rider of the top 2016 money-maker Ursula XII — breaks into the top ten at #9, four spots above his ranking last month. Frenchwoman Pénélope Leprevost takes tenth place, with Swiss rider Steve Guerdat pushed out of the top ten, to number 11. All eyes are now turned toward Basel, Switzerland for the Longines CSI Basel 2017, from January 12th to 15th. Among others, Ahlmann and Guerdat will be looking to pick up crucial points at the next major event in the international calendar. The full rankings are available here
