Olympics Equestrian

Equestrianism has been played at the Summer Olympics since 1900 in Paris, but disappeared until 1912 when it was played again every Summer Olympic Games. It is the only Olympic event that involves animals, with the horse considered as much as an athlete as the human rider.

1) Reimer Klimke - Germany: won 5 medals (5 gold) in team competition and 3 medals (1 gold, 2 bronze) in individual competition.

2) Isabell Werth - Germany: won 4 medals (4 gold) in team competition and 4 medals (1 gold, 3 silver) in individual competition.

If equestrian is a team sport how many people in the team?

You can generally have any number in a team. Competitors are rotated on a team for each show to allow everyone a chance to participate. An average team will have around 8-14 people.

For example, on an Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) team, the number of members can range from a dozen to 100! Usually there is a point squad that members compete to be a part of, and it is this group of riders that contribute to overall team points.
