Heading into December the FEI Eventing World Athlete Rankings see few changes amongst the top ten. Oliver Townend (GBR) with his 577 points still sits tight on the number one spot. Townend is chased by Tim Price (NZL) 573 points and Piggy March (GBR) 556 points.
On the Benelux Top Ten ranking Tim Lips (NED) holds a firm grip on the number one spot. Below Lips little have changed except talented Dutch Young Rider Bjinse Venderbosch enters the top ten after a solid CCI3*-S win at Pratoni del Vivaro, Italy some weeks back.
Lips and Venderbosch are the only riders on the Benelux Top Ten either holding on to last month’s rank or climbing.
Karin Donckers back on track.
But, heading into the weekend this could all change with Karin Donckers (BEL) making her come back from a serious non riding injury late summer.
Donckers is entered to Barroca d’Alva with Fletcha van ‘t Verahof and Leipheimer van ‘t Verahof in the CCI4*-S and Grandioz in the CCI3*-S.
