Victory in the Saab Top 10 has boosted Cathrine Dufour and Cassidy back to No. 5 in the world rankings from 131st just nine months ago.
Isabell Werth remains at No. 1 on Bella Rose as she has for the past five months, and No. 2 on Weihegold OLD, her Olympic German team gold medal and three-time World Cup champion that she competed in the Top 10 in Stockholm to capture the Grand Prix and place second in the freestyle.
The International Equestrian Federation (FEI) standings for the end of November, also show German team mates Dorothee Schneider on Showtime in third and Jessica von Bredow-Werndl on TSF Dalera fourth. Dorothee’s win on Sammy Davis Jr. in the World Cup in Madrid the same time as the Stockholm Top 10 moved the pair to 11th from 17th the previous month.
Laura Graves on Verdades slipped a place to sixth. Laura and Verdades, a year older than Cassidy, have not competed since the World Cup Final in April as she looks to the Olympics in Tokyo in July as the capstone to one of the most successful careers in American dressage.
