FEI/GandiniWorld Jumping Riders Rankings

The first ranking list of 2002 remains unchanged for the first 17 riders. The results of Zurich CSI-A were taken into account for this new list, as the event started on 31 January. Ludger Beerbaum (GER), unbeatable in Zurich, leads the rankings for the 13th consecutive month with 3359 points. Following are Rodrigo Pessoa (BRA) and Ludo Philippaerts (BEL). Beerbaum is in no real danger of loosing its No 1 spot, even if he will drop his 325 points from February 2001, as he now has a comfortable 821 points margin on his runner up.

FEI/BCM World Dressage Riders Rankings

Ulla Salzgeber is still firmly on top of the rankings with 79.645 points following a quite month with no change in the Top 10. Beatriz Ferrer-Salat (ESP), winner of San Patrignano’s (ITA) first CDI-W, goes up one place and is now 13th.

First CRIO In Austria

The 11th "Austrian Classic", held in Weikersdorf near Vienna from 24 to
28 April 2002 (AUT) will organise for the first time a FEI Reining
Nations Cup. Weikersdorf is the first of four Reining Nations Cups to be
held worldwide in 2002. The CRIO in Austria will be followed by an event
in Reggio Emilia (ITA) from 16 to 19 May, Gladstone (USA) from 20-23
