British Eventing Points 2013 Rankings

Andrew Nicholson CruiseControl

The final 2013 rankings have seen a hotly contested battle for the top spots. New Zealander Andrew Nicholson has retained first place in the rankings following another very successful season and also leads the FEI HSBC rankings. Topping the horse rankings is Irish bred Mr Cruise Control, owned jointly by Robin and Nicola Salmon alongside Andrew. Mr Cruise Control has had a prolific season finishing fifth in the 4* at Pau and first in both the CIC3* at Chatsworth in May and Luhmuhlen 4*. His owners will be presented with the Calcutta Light Horse Trophy in recognition of his impressive achievement. Andrew’s Olympic bronze medal winning mount, Deborah Sellar’s Nereo, is runner up with 382 points.

Best of the Brits, and winner of the Tony Collins award, is Dorset based William Fox-Pitt who attained a total of 2142 points this season. William’s European bronze medal winning horse Chilli Morning, owned by Christopher and Lisa Stone, reached third place in the BE rankings after winning 378 points. Another of Fox-Pitt’s rides, Catherine Witt’s recent Pau 4* winner Seacookie finished just behind his stable mate in fourth place with 368 points.

Fellow Brit Oliver Townend again retains third place in the rankings following another busy season, amassing 1241 points.
