Isabell Werth and Weihegold OLD back on top of the world

The Individual Olympic silver and gold Team medallists Isabell Werth and Weihegold Old are once again on the top of the FEI Dressage World Rankings. 

 - Isabell Werth and Weihegold OLD back on top of the world

The German combination have 2742 points following their win in the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Freestyle to Music at the Sweden International Horse Show ("The Saab Top Ten Dressage 2018") in Stockholm, Sweden this past weekend. The famous horse-and-rider duo, who were number one for almost two years starting in November 2016, thus ended up remaining in second place for just a couple of months behind Laura Graves and Verdades of the United States. The American pair now drop back to second place with 2714 points.   

In fact, dressage Queen Isabell Werth can be found three times in the top four of the ranking list, as she holds the third place with Bella Rose 2 (2690 points) and the fourth place with Emilio 107 (2658 points). 
A number of other combinations moved up in the rankings, thanks to the Saab Top Ten Dressage 2018 and the FEI Dressage World Cup qualifier in Madrid (ESP) from November 23–25 November. Patrik Kittel with Delaunay Old (SWE) moved from the 97th to the 11th place (2280 points), while Daniel Bachmann Andersen and Blue Hors Zepter (DEN) jumped from the 175th to the 33rd place (2030 points). Claudio Castilla Ruiz and Alcaide (ESP) also made an enormous leap, from the 118th to 43rd place (1923 points). 
With the FEI Dressage World Cup season continuing over the next few months, the ranking list will undoubtedly continue to be shaken up.
