FEI Longines Rankings: Ben Maher closes the gap with Henrik von Eckermann

Henrik von Eckermann (SWE) maintains his position at the top of the Longines Rankings for yet another month (3386 points). However, the gap separating him from second-placed rider, Ben Maher (GBR), has narrowed to just 136 points, the smallest lead for the Swede in recent months. In just one month, Britain’s Ben Maher has reduced the difference with Swedish leader by 258 points, thanks to impressive performances including a second-place finish in the Madrid leg of the Longines FEI Jumping World Cup™ with Enjeu De Grisien. It's worth noting that just seven months ago, von Eckermann achieved the largest-ever recorded lead on the runner-up, with 593 points separating him from then second-placed rider Julien Epaillard (FRA).

USA’s Kent Farrington (USA) holds on to third place for second month in a row, with 3119 points, while Swiss riders Steve Guerdat (3037 points) and Martin Fuchs (2945 points) switch positions in the fourth and fifth places, respectively. The same goes for Julien Epaillard (2928 points) and the American McLain Ward (2895 points), who occupy the sixth and seventh positions, while Simon Delestre (FRA) and Max Kühner (AUT) maintain their eighth and ninth positions, with 2754 and 2740 points respectively. Shane Sweetnam (IRL) closes the top 10, climbing one position with 2715 points.
