The FEI oversees around 70 rankings and standings across all the disciplines, from World Rankings calculated on a monthly basis for athletes, horses and/or combinations, to league, team and regional based standings for series such as the FEI World Cup™ and FEI Nations Cup™, as well as a variety of youth categories, among others. Below are the leaders for the month of June 2024 in the senior World Rankings.

Canadian jumpers are holding fairly firm in their positions, with Tiffany Foster still 22nd (and still the top female overall); Erynn Ballard moving up a few to 31st; Amy Millar dropping to 55th; and Mario Deslauriers remaining 68th.

There are currently no Canadian dressage riders in the top 100, but it is interesting to note that Ariana Chia is now our leader, jumping from 145th to 121st. Ryan Torkkeli has regained his footing somewhat and moved up from 128th to 122nd, and Naima Moreira Laliberte has vaulted from 164th to 128th.

Also notable are the CDI2* rankings, where five Canadians occupy spots in the top 100 thanks to up-and-coming horses: Lori Bell (10), Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu (12), Simone Williams (36), Erin Silo (51) and Ryan Torkkeli. In the heavily-populated CDI1* rankings, Brooke Mancusi leads the Canuck charge in 44th place, followed by James Irwin (72), Hannah Beaulieu (74) and Brittany Fraser-Beaulieu (84). And in the U25 list, two Canadians make the top 100: Claire Robinson and Glamour Boy (24) and Brooke Mancusi with Arthur (Jill Irving’s former ride, 86).

The top Canadian continues to be Shannon Thorndyke, now in 200th spot.

Para-Dressage: Mari Durward-Akhurst and the USA are the new World #1s

Britain’s Mari Durward–Akhurst is the new leader of the FEI Para Dressage World Individual Ranking.

Canada continues to have three athletes in the top 100: Roberta Sheffield, 44th; Austen Burns, 56th; and Jody Schloss, 71st.
