Ireland’s Judy Reynolds is up to 12th place in the latest FEI World Individual Dressage Ranking published on Tuesday, December 3rd. This means that once again, Reynolds jointly holds the Irish record for the highest ranked individual dressage rider in the world, matching Anna Merveldt’s 1993 BCM/L’Année Hippique world riders’ dressage ranking of 12th.
Judy Reynolds helped Ireland secure a first ever Olympic dressage team qualification at the FEI European Championships in Rotterdam last August where she and Vancouver K set three new Irish international record scores in six days: Grand Prix (76.351%), Grand Prix Special (78.252%) and Grand Prix Kür (Freestyle to Music) (85.598%). Last month Reynolds placed sixth in the FEI World Cup qualifier in Stuttgart, Germany on a score of 80.755%.
Germany’s Isabell Werth and Bella Rose 2 remain in the number one position in the the latest FEI World Individual Dressage Ranking.
