Equestrianism at the 1920 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Antwerpen, Belgium
Venue(s): , Merksem; Hoogboom Country Club, Kapellen; Olympic Stadium, Antwerpen
Date Started: September 6, 1920
Date Finished: September 10, 1920
Format: Four rider teams, best three scores to count for the team total. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.

Gold: SWE Sweden
Silver: ITA Italy
Bronze: BEL Belgium


The team three-day event was won by Sweden, which was led by the gold and silver medallists in the individual events. The team scores were determined by the passive system of simply adding up the scores of the individual riders for each nation. The 20 km cross-country was held in a pouring rain, and the course was thought by many to be 3 km too long. Sweden had also won this event in 1912 at Stockholm, but no riders competed in both years. Sweden did not compete in this event at the 1919 Inter-Allied Games, and in their absence, that competition was won by a French team, none of whose riders competed in Antwerp.
