  • At the end of the WBFSH rankings cycle, our breeder and studbook rankings start again from zero. Heading into the second half of our cycle, we start publishing the rankings on a monthly basis.


    In the dressage breeder ranking Silke Druckenmüller still finds herself in first place for breeding the talented Trakehner mare TSF Dalera (by Easy Game). Stal Heiline has moved into the number 2 position (from 9th in the fianl 2021 ranking), for breeding the DWB mare Danciera (by Fürstenball). And in third place we have Verbena Dressage for breeding the Swedish Warmblood Touchdown (by Quaterback). This young horse and his rider Patrick Kittel made their Grand Prix debut only in September last year, and have competed in 5 international shows together. Their success moves Verbena Dressage into third place, from 385th in the Final 2021 Dressage Breeder Rankings.

    The three top jumping breeders are all in the top 10 for the first time. For breeding the Hanoverian gelding Count Me In (by Count Grannus), Friedrich Luessmann has moved into first place, from 78th in the Final 2021 Jumping Breeder Ranking. Count Me In is competing under the saddle of Irish rider Connor Swail since July last year. Stoeterij Gaesbeek moves to second place from 20th at the end of the last cycle, for breeding the KWPN mare Glamour Girl (by Zirocco Blue VDL). Up from 15th place at the end of the last cycle, Marie Bourdin is in throd place for breeding the Selle Francais mare Vital Chance (by Diamant de Semilly).

    Elizabeth Callahan (USA) is first in the Eventing Breeder Rankings, moving up from 150th in the Final 2021 ranking, for breeding the American-born but DSP-registered gelding Quantum Leap (by Quite Capitol). Berthold Gerdes bred the Oldenburg gelding QC Diamantaire, who has an interesting pedigree in Diarado as a sire and Sandro Hit as a dam sire. From rank 102 last year, Berthold Gerdes moves into second place. Third place is Pierre Gouye for breeding the Selle Francais gelding Banzai du Loir (by Nouma d'Auzay), up from 23rd place last year.
