Christian Ahlmann holds onto his number one spot in the world after a strong month of competition for the tall German. Christian, who won the Longines GCT Grand Prix of Hamburg with his compact bay stallion Codex One.

Since 1 December 2012, Christian has topped the world of show jumping and begins his seventh month of the pinnacle of the Longines Ranking. Kevin Staut inches closer to the number one spot with 2413 points, only 62 points behind the leading German jockey. 

Beezie Madden, who recently won the 2012/13 FEI Rolex World Cup in Gothenburg, Sweden jumps up to number four in the world and lands herself within the top five.

Germany’s legendary Ludger Beerbaum launches from 12th in the world to number seven after strong performances in Paris, Rome and Wiesbaden. Winning the Hermes Grand Prix in Paris and finishing second in the Nations Cup with Team Germany in Rome certainly helped Ludger land a comfortable position within the world’s top ten.
