Charlotte Dujardin on Freestyle leaped 202 places in a month to 47th from 249th based on results of the Lyon World Cup, a victory in the Grand Prix and second in the Freestyle.

Aside from Isabell’s three places, fellow Germans Dorothee Schneider on Showtime FRH remained in the third spot, Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on TSF Dalera BB in fourth while Helen Langehanenberg on Damsey FRH moved up to sixth from eighth, swapping positions with Denmark’s Daniel Bachmann Andersen and Blue Hors Zack..
