Date Started: October 16, 1964
Date Finished: October 19, 1964
Format: Four rider teams, best three scores to count for the team total. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.
The event was held concurrently with the individual competition. Teams consisted of four riders with the best three total scores counting towards the team score, thus, each nation had to have three riders complete all three phases. Nine teams completed the event. Italy had never won a medal in this event, even at Roma in 1960, but in Tokyo they won the gold medal. This was based on their endurance phase which put them ahead entering the jumping, with a third-place in the jumping phase securing the gold. Great Britain led after dressage, but could not finish the endurance course. After two phases Germany was second to Italy, with the United States third, but the US was second in jumping to move up to the silver medal, as Germany took bronze.
