World Champions Charlotte Fry and Glamourdale take FEI Dressage World Rankings number one slots
The New Year has started with major changes at the top of the FEI Dressage World Ranking. After clinching two gold medals on the FEI Dressage World Championship in Herning (DEN) back in August 2022, both Charlotte Fry (GBR) and her stallion Glamourdale have reached the top spot of the world ranking.
The 27 year-old Brit has climbed from number four to the top for the first time in her career, with a total of 2120 points. Her stallion Glamourdale (12 years old) is also on the top of the horses’ ranking, on 2060 points, moving up from the 70th place, showing the remarkable year he’s completed.
Glamourdale and Fry have become the first number one athletes since the new format of the FEI Dressage World Ranking was approved in 2022, where athletes and horses are listed separately.
Former number one, Jessica Von Bredow-Werndl (GER), has dropped to number five after claiming the top spot back in August 2022, with 1882 points. Catherine Laudrup-Dufour (DEN) maintains the second place after earning three medals at the World Championships (one gold and two silvers), on 2040 points. Isabell Werth (GER), third on 2021 points and Dinja Van Liere (NED), fourth on 1919 points complete the Top 5.
The FEI Dressage World Ranking for horses is completed by Hermes N.O.P (Dinja Van Liere’s stallion), DSP Quantaz (Isabell Werth’s stallion), Touchdown (Patrik Kittel’s gelding) and Famoso OLD (Benjamin Werndl’s gelding).
