LAUSANNE, Switzerland, Mar. 7, 2015–America’s Chase Hickok on Sagacious HF made one of the most dramatic moves in world dressage rankings jumping to third in the world in the Under-25 division as of the end of February.

The latest rankings of 93 Uncer-25 combinations to the end of February showed that Chase and the 16-year-old KWPN gelding jumped to the third spot with eight victories since the start of their international partnership 11 months ago. The pair were ranked 31st the previous month.

The wins have all been at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center near her home in Wellington, Florida.

In the Junior Rider division of 285 combinations, the most dramatic move was by the 14-year-old Felicitas Hendricks of Germany on Faible AS who were ranked 86th at the end of February with no ranking the previous month.

Their ranking was based on five straight victories at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in February and the pair have added two more wins in March that will be included in the next world rankings.
