Rolf-Göran Bengtsson new leader of the Top Ten

In the latest Rolex Rankings, just published by the FEI, Swedish rider Rolf-Göran Bengtsson is now the leader, 81 points ahead of Eric Lamaze, the canadian reigning Olympic champion who had topped the Rolex Rankings since 1 June 2011.

The Hong Kong individual silver medallist Rolf-Göran Bengtsson has made history by becoming the first Swedish world number one in an Olympic discipline.

After winning the European Championships in Madrid last september, Rolf has made remarquable results in the Lyon CSI 5*, in the Paris Gucci Masters, and in Geneva the following week-end, wher he was second in the World Cup, and also in London where he was placed fifth. All this adding up to achieve the 81 points ahead of Eric Lamaze, and allowing Rolf to become number one in the prestigious Rolex Rankings.

Cheval Savoir had already pointed out many times the dramatic progress of Rolf-Göran Bengtsson, and admired his highly skilled yet refined way of riding. When in Paris, Rolf gave an exclusive interview to Cheval Savoir.

The swedish rider, who turns 50 this year, rides the excellent horses from the Mexican La Silla breeding stud, and should go on achieving brilliant results in 2012.

Many congratulations from all the Cheval Savoir staff !
