Charlotte Dujardin and Valegro, Great Britain’s double Olympic gold medal partnership, retained their place at the top of the International Equestrian Federation’s world rankings for the third straight month.

Charlotte and the 11-year-old KWPN gelding (Negro x Maifleur x Gerschwin) have 2,943 points from their nine straight victories–including all three classes at the London Games–over the 12 months to the end of February.

Adelinde Cornelissen and Jerich Parzival remained in second place on 2,894 points.

The only change in the top 10 places last month was Sweden’s Tinne Vilhelmsson-Silfvén and Don Auriello moving up to sixth place from seventh, a new high ranking for the six-time Olympian. She returns home to Sweden this week after her third winter circuit in Florida which was highlighted this year by victory on Don Auriello in the CDI5* in January.
