Host City: Berlin, Germany
Venue(s): Olympic Stadium, Imperial Sports Field, Berlin
Date Started: August 16, 1936
Date Finished: August 16, 1936
Format: Three rider teams, all three scores to count. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.
The team and individual jumping were held concurrently with the team jumping passively scored by combining the scores of the three team members. There were 18 teams entered but only 7 managed to have three riders finish the course. The course was designed by August Andreae, who also designed the cross-country courses. The jumping course had 13 fences and 20 jumps spread over 1,050 metres, as the one double and three triple combinations had to be jumped from both sides. The obstacles were between 1.30-1.60 metres in height, but for the jump-off most obstacles were raised and some distances were changed, with the water jump widened from 5.00 to 5.50 metres.
Germany won the gold medal comfortably, led by the individual champion, [Kurt Haase]. They were trailed by the Netherlands, which is traditionally strong in horse events, and Portugal won the bronze medal, as they had done in this event in 1924.
