The Pan-American gold medalist and Brazilian Olympic team member Pedro Veniss remained for the sixth month in a row as Latino Ranking leader.

Increasing his account by 5 points compared to last month, Pedro Veniss accumulates 2,000 World Ranking points, where he currently held his same position as the world number 34.

Completing a productive month including a first and a second place, both classes were at CSI5*-W Stuttgart, allowing Pedro Veniss to take top honors with the 12-year-old mare For Felicila (For Pleasure x Espri) and second place it was achieved with the 11-year-old mare Anaya Ste Hermelle (Adiamo x Paladin des lfs).

Signing his sixth month as the main Latino reference and best international rider of Brazil, Pedro Veniss strengthens his position, but little by little comes his countryman and former Latino Ranking leader Marlon Modolo Zanotelli, threatening to displace him by being only in second place and increasing his account to 1,845 points, only 155 points below Pedro Veniss, after completing an almost perfect month, winning three of the four FEI events in which he participated.

For his part, Colombian rider Carlos Lopez fell one place to third and Brazilian Yuri Mansur did not move from his fourth place, but they fell down a bit with respect to the leader pointe and second place too.

The Top 10 among Latinos completed former Ranking leader Samuel Parot of Chile maintaining its fifth place, Santiago Lambre remains entrenched in sixth box for several months among Latinos, while Rodrigo Lambre of Brazil also kept his seventh place. The changes were noticed with Patricio Pasquel from Mexico climbing one place to eighth, Juan Manuel Luzardo from Uruguay moved back one square to ninth and taking an important step Nicolás Pizarro from Mexico climbed 10 places to the tenth place.

For the Top 20 group another great leap was Francisco Pasquel of Mexico entering the select Latino riders group placing 11th, followed by Emanuel Andrade from Venezuela, who continued to climb positions in the World Ranking, but fell a step between the latinos and Eduardo Menezes of Brazil continued in free fall until 13th place, where although it retreated 3 places, it has lowered until nine places the last three months. They followed in the order Jaime Azcárraga of Mexico going down from 12th to 14th, his fellowman Eugenio Garza also lowered two positions until 15th, while another Mexican climbed square with Alberto Michán happening of 19th to 16th, Cassio Rivetti of Brazil fell 3 places to 17th, Fernando Martinez Sommer from Mexico was down the same 3 steps to place 18th and Colombian riders Dayro Arroyave and Rene Lopez closed down from 17th to 19th Arroyave and from 18th to 20th for Lopez.
