Entries For London 2012 Olympic Equestrian Events Unveiled


Athletes from 40 countries on six continents will compete in the equestrian events of the London 2012 Olympic Games, which get underway on 28 July. The list of entries validated by the London Organising Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games (LOCOG) is now available on the FEI website here. Continuing the Olympic tradition, Jumping is the strongest discipline with 26 nations represented, but Dressage – for the first time – has overtaken Eventing and has the second highest number of nations taking part, with 24 compared to 23 for Eventing.

Seven nations – Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the USA – will be represented by teams in all three Olympic equestrian disciplines of Jumping, Dressage, and Eventing. Three countries - Germany, the Netherlands and host nation Great Britain – have qualified the maximum number of 13 riders.
