The FEI keeps a list of the individuals & pas de deux sorted by points which was updated yesterday. The teams aren’t ranked. What counts are the placings at 4 CVI’s (out of 16) plus the World Championships during one civil year. The World Cup isn’t included. In the lead are Jacques Ferrari, Joanne Eccles & Pia Engelberty + Torben Jacobs. I agree with the first ranks but for example Nicolas Andreani is only placed 5th because he participated in Saumur in July where he couldn’t earn that much points for his second place like in other competitions. And I would have never expected Julian Wilfling on rank 6. In the women top ten are three Britons & three Germans. In the World Championships it were only two. So, how does it work? If you take part in the right CVI’s you get a better rank? It has no influence on wins or titles. It is only an overview of the current vaulters.
What is your opinion? Is it a step in the right direction, because we have enough international competitions & participants now or isn’t it significant for the international stage? Is there something like this in your country, too?
