In the dressage event, the only real controversy of the Olympic equestrian events occurred. [Gustaf Adolf Boltenstern, Sr.] of Sweden competed and finished third in the final scores. However, he was disqualified for practicing in the ring prior to the competition. Sweden still swept the first four places in the event. Boltenstern had also competed in the dressage at Stockholm in 1912, as did three other riders who competed in this event in Antwerp\\: [Emmanuel de Blommaert de Soye] (BEL), [Gaston de Trannoy] (BEL), [Jens Falkenberg] (NOR).
