Updates to the FEI Eventing World Rankings have been made for June, and the U.S.’ own Boyd Martin has moved up on spot overall to take hold of #2 behind current world #1 Oliver Townend (GBR). Competitive finishes in the Cosequin Lexington CCI4*-S with his Olympic team horse Fedarman B and direct reserve Commando 3 contributed to an amassing of points for the Pennsylvania-based rider, who now has earned 471 ranking points on this scoring period.

Oliver Townend continues his run as #1, and the remainder of the world top 10 is nearly all British, which bodes strongly ahead of Paris for the yet-to-be-named final squad for the defending gold medalists. Tim Price (NZL) is the other disrupter on the list, coming in 9th overall for rankings.

Liz Halliday is the other U.S. rider in the FEI top 20, hitting 19 on the rankings this month.
