Summary

From 1976-2008 Germany won the gold medal in team dressage every time they competed, not winning only in 1980 when they joined the American-led boycott of Moskva. They had also won in 1964-68, but they did not win in 1972, placing second narrowly behind the Soviet Union, which would also win this event in 1980. The Soviets were led by Yelena Petushkova, individual silver medalist, and Ivan Kizimov, the 1968 individual champion. Germany was second, despite having the individual gold medalist, Liselott Linsenhoff, and Josef Neckermann, who had helped Germany win gold medals in 1964-68. Sweden won the bronze medal, their first medal in the event since winning the gold in 1952-56.
