Ulysse - Second Best Jumper in the World

Tags :

The overall rankings of the World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses is final.

The world ranking of jumpers is for the second year led by Hickstead, who won recently the bronze medal at the World Equestrian Games under Eric Lamaze. BWP Ulysse is second best jumper in the world. Ulysse is a son of NonStop x Jus de Pomme and was born in the stables of Eric Claeys. Nice to know: before leaving to Switzerland for current rider Pius Schwizer, Ulysse was ridden in Belgium by brand new world champion Philippe Le Jeune!

In individual ranking of horses BWP is strongly represented. The studbook has 11 horses in the top 50, an overview:
