After four consecutive years on the third place in dressage for studbooks Danish Warmblood has now been surpassed by the Westfalian Studbook. The best Westfalian dressage horse is the stallion Damon Hill which ranks third in the world. With two Top Ten horses each KWPN and the Hanoverian studbook have, once again, placed themselves as the two best dressage studbooks.


In the studbook rankings for jumping we see the same three studbooks in the Top Three as last year, but the KWPN have lost their first place to the Holsteiner Verband by a difference of 281 points. The two best Holsteiner horses are the Caretino sons Cristallo and Casall La Silla which place 1st and 4th on the horse ranking. Selle Francais claims third place again this year with the world ranking No 3 Nino des Buissonnets as their best horse.


In eventing we see the same four studbooks in lead as last year but apperaring in a new order. While the Hanoverians still claim second place the winners of last year, Selle Francais, have dropped to a fourth place behind the Holsteiners, which leaves the first place to the Irish Sport Horse Studbook. Apart from a third place last year and a second place in 2010 the Irish Sport Horse Studbook have won the studbook ranking in eventing every year.
