Following a run of excellent results primarily at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Florida, several Irish Show Jumping riders have made big gains on the latest Longines FEI World Rankings released this week.

Tipperary’s Denis Lynch is at No.29, with Wexford’s Bertram Allen now at No.35. Limerick’s Paul O’Shea is at No.39, with Derry’s Daniel Coyle also inside the top 50 at No.44.

The Eventing and Dressage World Rankings remain largely unchanged after a period of limited competition activity. Galway’s Cathal Daniels remains Ireland’s top-ranked Eventing rider at No.14, while Kildare’s Judy Reynolds is Ireland’s highest-placed Dressage rider at No.22.
