America’s Adrienne Lyle and Salvino rocketed to 11th in the world with similar dramatic moves by Benjamin Werndl of Germany on Famoso OLD, Holland’s Emmel Scholtens on Indian Rock and Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin on Imhotep, all driven by results from the World Dressage Championships a month ago.

Adrienne and the 15-year-old Hanoverian stallion, the only American team partnership to compete in the Grand Prix, the Special and the Freestyle at Herning, Denmerk, moved up 174 places to 11th from 185th a month earlier on the International Equestrian Federation (FEI) standings posted Monday.

Benjamin Werndl and Famoso, a 13-year-old Oldenburg gelding, in the first senior team championship for Germany, jumped 103 places to 14th from 117th.

Emmelie Scholtens of the Netherlands on Indian Rock, a nine-year-old KWPN stallion, went to No. 27 from 194th.

Britain’s Charlotte Dujardin on the nine-year-old KWPN gelding Imhotep in the pair’s third international competition, shot up to 32nd from 307th while team mate Gareth Hughes on Classic Briolinca matched the move to go to 36th from 311th.

Jessica von Bredow-Werndl and TSF Dalera BB, that were not at the championships as the rider is expected her second child and has been absent from competition since the World Cup Final in April, remained atop the standings where the German partnership has been since the Olympics in July 2021.

Cathrine Laudrup-Dufour’s success on Vamos Amigos at home in Denmark edged to No. 2 up from third, swapping places with her Olympic mount, Bohemian.

Germany’s Isabell Werth on DSP Quantaz climbed one spot to No. 4.

Carina Cassøe Krüth on Heiline’s Danciera at No. 5 and Daniel Bachmann Andersen on Marshall-Bell at No. 9 gave Denmark’s championship gold medal team four of the top 10 standings.

Dinja van Liere of the Netherlands on Hermes, individual and freestyle bronze medalists, kept their sixth place standing from the previous month.

World champion Charlotte Fry of Great Britain on Glamourdale climbed to 7th place from 16th at the end of July.

Sweden’s Patrik Kittel on Touchdown slipped a notch to 8th as did Germany’s Frederic Wandres on Duke of Britain FRH to 10th from 9th the previous month.
