Scotland’s Scott Brash completes his thirteenth month as World No.1 just ahead of the end of the 2014 year. After taking the Longines Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Doha last month, Brash remains 260 points in the lead, ahead of the new World No.2 Kent Farrington.
Holding his lead with 2940 points, Brash remains in the lead ahead of Farrington by 260 points. Kent Farrington recently moved up to World No.2 from the fourth spot in the world, now inching closer to the pinnacle of international show jumping. An impressive climb for the American rider, who recently signed an exciting sponsorship deal with Rolex. After coming second in the Rolex Grand Prix of Aachen, you can be sure Farrington will have no intention of remaining in World No.2 for long. He will surely have his eyes on the World No.1, as we look to the Winter circuit in Florida as well as a winter full of World Cup Qualifiers.
Germany’s Ludger Beerbaum moves down to World No.3 while his fellow countryman and last year’s World Cup winner, Daniel Deusser, takes over the World No.4 position, moving up from World No.7. Germany is certainly dominating the Top 5 this month, with Marcus Ehning taking up the World No.5 position.
