The World Cup victory by Hans Peter Minderhoud and Glock’s Flirt moved the Dutch combination to No. 7 in the world, the highest ranking for the pair, but team mate Edward Gal on Glock’s Voice dropped to No. 11 in the latest standings released Wednesday.

Germany’s Kristina Bröring-Sprehe on Desperados remained atop the FEI, International Equestrian Federation, for the third straight month as of the end of March, ahead of Great Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin on Valegro at No. 2 since dropping from the top spot at the beginning of this year.

The USA’s Kasey Perry Glass on Dublet made the most dramatic move by vaulting to No. 29 in the world from 212 at the end of February. The pair first appeared in the rankings at No. 531 after making their Big Tour debut in January this year.

Ireland’s Judy Reynolds on Vancouver K also made a big jump to No. 28 from 47th based on their results in the World Cup Final and the CDI5* in Doha, Qatar in March.

The World Cup results that sent Hans Peter and the 15-year-old Swiss Warmblood into the highest place for the pair since beginning their Big Tour partnership in June 2014 also edged runner-up Tinne Vilhelmson-Silfvén on Don Auriello up one spot to No. 6 and fellow Swedish team combination of Patrik Kittel on Watermill Scandic up two spots to 13th. Denmark’s Anna Kasprzak on Donnperignon climbed to 16th from 20th.

The Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida where Kasey and Dublet competed over the winter also helped U.S. Grand Prix championship pair Laura Graves on Verdades move up to 13th from 15th and American Allison Brock on Rosevelt climb to 40th from 51st.

Steffen Peters on Legolas dropped a couple of places to eighth but on Rosamunde moved up a spot to 17th.
