Who’s number one in the world at the moment? None other than Germany's Michael Jung of course!

The current top ten riders on the FEI world rankings span five different countries, with Great Britain represented four times, New Zealand three times, and Germany, the USA and France once each. While there are no Aussies riders in the current top ten, there are many that are still highly ranked - including Chris Burton (17th), Andrew Cooper (21st), Shane Rose (30th), Hazel Shannon (35th), and Megan Jones (42nd).
 
Without further ado, here are the world’s current top ten eventing riders:
