The pommelled horse had 10 competitors from six nations, as no Japanese and only one Italian competed. The gymnasts performed a compulsory and a voluntary exercise, with total points determining the final standings. The event was held separately from the all-around. The comfortable winner was Hungarian István Pelle, who had the highest score in the compulsory routine. In the voluntary routine, Italian Omero Bonoli had the best score, which brought him the silver medal, followed by American Frank Cumiskey, but Cumiskey was only fifth in the compulsories and just missed the podium in fourth place, as bronze went to his teammate, Frank Haubold.
