The FEIF Ranking 2017 is an extension to the current WorldRanking. The aim of the ranking is to provide a more lifely view on recent performances of riders (and horses). The FEIF Ranking 2017 is based upon the best two marks/times per rider per test at FEIF WorldRanking Events in 2017.
The WorldRanking itself is based upon the best three results in a period of two years, which leads to less changes in the ranking order.
How is the position of a rider computed?
The position of a rider in any discipline in the FEIF Ranking 2017 is based upon the arrhythmic mean of the two best results with any horse in the respective disciplines. Starting 2016, a clear distinction is made between the individual oval track tests (T1, T2, V1, F1; Sport A) and the connected group tests (T3, T4, V2, F2; Sport B) . In Sport A any rider will need at least two scores of 5.50 or higher in the track classes Tölt T1, Tölt T2, Four Gait V1, Five Gait F1 or the equivalent time in Pace Race 250m P1 (25.60") and SpeedPass P2 (8.70"). In Sport B any rider will need at least two scores of 5.50 or higher in the track classes Tölt T3, Tölt T4, Four Gait V2, Five Gait F2 or the equivalent time in Pace Race 150m P3 (16.50") to be able to enter the ranking list for a specific test. Any rider may be ranked in Sport A classes and Sport B classes at the same time. And only results in the current year are taken in account.
