Mixed Jumping, Individual

Equestrianism at the 1976 Summer Games: Previous Summer Games ▪ Next Summer Games


Host City: Montréal, Canada
Venue(s): Olympic Equestrian Centre, Bromont, Québec
Date Started: July 27, 1976
Date Finished: July 27, 1976
Format: Two rounds. Total score for both rounds determined placement.

Gold: FRG Alwin Schockemöhle
Silver: CAN Michel Vaillancourt
Bronze: BEL François Mathy


The format was the same as in 1972 and consisted of two rounds, with the top 20 riders in round one advancing to the final round. The total score for both rounds determined placements. The 1974 World Champions were Hartwig Steenken of West Germany (men) and France’s [Janou Lefèbvre-Tissot] (women), but neither rider was on their nation’s team for the 1976 Olympics. The individual event was marred by heavy rains especially near the end of the competition.

In the first round, only West German [Alwin Schockemöhle] had a clean ride, with second place shared by seven riders with 4.00 faults. Schockemöhle then rode cleanly in round two, for a perfect score in two rounds, the first Olympic jumper to ever achieve this. In 1928, Czechoslovakian [František Ventura] was clean in one round, but also went clean in a jump-off. Three riders tied for second behind Schockemöhle with a total of 12.00 faults – [Michel Vaillancourt] (CAN), [François Mathy] (BEL), and [Debbie Johnsey] (GBR). In the jump-off Vaillancourt won the silver medal with 4.00 faults, Mathy taking bronze with 8.00 faults, while Johnsey dropped off the podium with 15.25 faults.
