Format: Separate competition unrelated to all-around, with specialists allowed to compete on the apparatus. Score based on compulsory and optional exercises on apparatus.
Twelve gymnasts from six nations competed on horizontal bar, with performances in a compulsory and voluntary exercise. The event was held separately from the all-around, and was won by Dallas Bixler, a specialist on high bar, who did not compete in the all-around. He was in only third place after the compulsory routine, but his voluntary reverse dismount was most impressive to the judges and brought him the gold medal. Second-place ended up in a tie between two Finnish teammates, Heikki Savolainen and Einari Teräsvirta. The silver medal was given to Savolainen and bronze to Teräsvirta by mutual agreement of the two Finns.
