The Union Jack will be flying proudly after the latest FEI rankings put Great Britain in first place in each of the 3 Olympic disciplines: show-jumping, eventing and dressage.
In the show-jumping discipline, the unstoppable Scott Brash stays in first place. The British rider, who won team gold at the London Olympics in 2012, is on route to legendary status in the sport having won practically everything. The only title that he is yet to win is the WEG, but he could change that as there are just a couple of months to go before the event in Normandy begins.
Another British rider, Charlotte Dujardin, who with her performer makes up the strongest pair in the dressage category, tops the FEI rankings for this discipline. Since conquering first place in September, Dujardin has made it her own. In Lyon she topped off a wonderful period by winning the FEI World Cup. At the age of just 28 (like her compatriot Scott Brash) she is also on the way to becoming a legend in the sport as she continues to break record after record with her extraordinary KWPN Valegro.
It doesn’t end there as British rider William Fox-Pitt also maintains his first place in the FEI rankings for eventing which he conquered at the start of the month. This week the title winning rider is called back into action at the Badminton Horse Trials to take on opponents such as New Zealand’s Andrew Nicholson.
Naturally, the rankings could change in the coming weeks but this takes nothing away from Great Britain’s impressive clean sweep.
