Summary

Dressage is a fully judged event so it was not surprising that Germany won both the gold and silver medals in Berlin. The traditional powers in this discipline had been Sweden and France to this time, but Germany would later become dominant. Gold was won by Heinz Pollay and silver by Friedrich Gerhard, while the bronze went to Austrian Alois Podhajsky. Pollay would return to the Olympics in 1952 and win a bronze medal in team dressage. Fifth-place went to Frenchman André Jousseaumé who had also placed fifth in 1932. He would compete in dressage at the 1948, 1952, and 1956 Olympics, winning individual silver and bronze medals at London in 1948, and Helsinki in 1952, respectively.
