Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro back at world number 1

  • Dressage’s golden girl Charlotte Dujardin is back on top of the world — taking the number 1 spot in the dressage rankings.

    The British rider and 11-year old Olympic partner Valegro have reclaimed the top placing in this month’s FEI World Dressage Rankings.

    The London 2012 double gold medallists won 3 more medals at the European Championships in Denmark last month — including 2 individual golds and team bronze, putting them back up at the top.

    They now have 2,915 points, knocking last month’s leaders Adelinde Cornelissen and Jerich Parzival off the top spot. The pair have gone down to 3rd, while Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill NRW lie in 2nd place.
    Carl Hester and Uthopia have jumped from 91st to 31st — the biggest move in the rankings this month. This is thanks to strong performances  in Denmark where they were on the bronze medal-winning team and at Hickstead in August, where they were on the winning Nations Cup team and topped the individual freestyle.
