The ranking results are recorded starting on October 1 and ending on September 30 every year. Obviously, with this year’s focus being on the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, available points are greater than usual, so the 2023/2024 end-of-year result will be eagerly awaited.

Currently, in the dressage breeder ranking: Up from 20th position in the 2023 final ranking, P. Kluytmans, Tilburg (NED), comes in at number one with 2,469 points, for breeding the KWPN stallion Everdale (Lord Leatherdale x Negro). Everdale and his rider Charlotte Fry (GBR) most recently won the CDI5* GP Freestyle in Fontainebleau with 82.34%.
With 2,312 points, Verbena Dressage (SWE) takes second place for breeding the SWB gelding Touchdown (Quaterback x Sack).
