There were six equestrian events held at the 1928 Olympics, with the program contesting what would become the standard individual and team events in dressage, jumping, and three-day event. The competitions were restricted to men and military officers, as they would be through 1948. The jumping competitions were held at the [Olympisch Stadion] in Amsterdam but dressage and three-day were contested in Hilversum, 30 km southeast of Amsterdam, both in the [Sportpark] there and in the [fields surrounding] it. Both Germany and the Netherlands won two gold medals, with the Netherlands leading the medal list with four medals, adding a silver and a bronze, as 10 different nations won medals.
