The event was slightly different as the top 25 riders in round one, instead of 20, were advanced to the second round. The favorite was probably American [Melanie Smith] who, aboard [Calypso], had led the 1982 World Cup and was third in 1983 behind her countryman [Norman Dello Joio] and Austrian [Hugo Simon]. The US team for Los Angeles was so strong that Dello Joio was not even selected for it, as they opted instead for [Joe Fargis] and [Conrad Homfeld], who were stablemates in Petersburg, Virginia.

Fargis led round one with a clean trip, tied with Britain's [Michael Whitaker], while Holmfeld and Smith were in a five-way tie for third with 4.00 faults. Holmfeld then posted a clean ride in round two for a total of 4.00 faults. Fargis rode cleanly in his second round, until the final barrier, on which his horse, [Touch of Class], knocked over the top rail. Fargis and Holmfeld thus tied with 4.00 faults and would have to jump-off. Fargis won the gold medal with another perfect round, leaving Holmfeld with silver.

Smith dropped back in round two and tied for seventh, but Whitaker had a disastrous ride, with 28.50 faults, and placed 24th. The bronze came down to a jump-off among Switzerland's [Heidi Robbiani] and [Bruno Candrian], Canada's [Mario Deslauriers]. Robbiani secured third-place with a clean ride in the jump-off, as Deslauriers placed fourth with 4 faults, and Candrian had 8 faults.
