Charlotte Dujardin and her double Olympic gold medal winning partner, Valegro, have reclaimed the top spot in the FEI World Dressage Rankings.
Dutch rider Adelinde Cornelissen pushed Charlotte down to second place in November after winning the opening qualifiers of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup in Odense in Demark and Lyon riding Jerich Parzival. However, following Charlotte and Valegro's performance at Olympia, where they won the fifth leg of the World Cup and broke yet another world record in the grand prix, they are back on top.
The Olympic silver medalists have moved back down to second place on 2,907 points, while Charlotte and the 10-year-old Dutch warmblood gelding are the world’s number one combination once again with 2,943 points.
There are no other changes in the top ten, with Germany’s Helen Langehanenberg and Damon Hill NRW holding onto third place, and Laura Bechtolsheimer and Mistral Hojris in fourth.
