Ulla Salzgeber still leads the standings with an unchanged score of 79.645. Lars Petersen (DEN) had no results in December 2001 to compensate for the points dropped the previous December. He consequently lost the runner-up spot and is now 3rd behind Nadine Capellmann (GER).
The American rider Lisa Wilcox went up from the 7th to 5th place (from 75.157 to 75.433 points) thanks to her 2nd place in the Grand Prix and Kür of Frankfurt (GER).
Arjen Teeuwissen (NED) burst in to the Top 10 and makes a remarkable jump from the 83rd to the 7th place in the rankings. In the No 11 Dressage Rankings list, he only had 7 results to count. He had excellent results in December with his horse Gestion Goliath: 1st in the Grand Prix and Kür in Amsterdam, 1st and 3rd in Mechelen.
