Johnson leads the WBFSH stallion ranking
The KWPN stallion Johnson is at the top of the WBFSH ranking for the second consecutive year. The son of Jazz was ranked first in 2020 and 2022, and second in 2019 and 2021. Eight dressage stallions in the top 10 are KWPN-bred, with four of them being champions at the KWPN Stallion Show.
The WBFSH rankings were calculated from October 1, 2022, to September 30, 2023. International sport horses earned points based on their performances this year. The Sire Ranking is calculated based on the performance of the stallions' offspring.

In dressage, the second place goes to Blue Hors Zack (by Rousseau), and the third place is held by the Cocktail son Jazz. In the fifth position is the stallion Ampère, another Rousseau son and the KWPN stallion Totilas is in sixth place. Vivaldi (by Krack C), Apache (by UB 40), and Bordeaux (by United) occupy the seventh, eighth, and ninth places, respectively.
