Rules and competition format:

  • Wednesday 23rd August: First qualifying competition, individuals and teams. Table C (penalties turned into seconds added), fence height 1.50m, open to all riders and horses declared as starters in the team and individual championship. Starting order decided by a draw. Following this first competition the scores obtained by each rider will be converted into points. The scores will be determined as follows: Each rider’s time will be multiplied by the coefficient 0.50 and converted into points; the points must be rounded to two decimal places. The second decimal place will be rounded up from .005 and rounded down from .004. The rider with the lowest number of points after this conversion will be given zero penalties, the other riders being credited with the number of penalties representing the difference in points between each of them and the leading rider.
  • Thursday 24th August: Round one of team competition, second individual competition. This second competition is conducted over two different rounds run over two days under Table A not against the clock over 1.60m tracks. It is open to all riders who took part in the first competition, and individuals go first.
  • Friday 25th August: Team competition final and third individual competition. Table A not against the clock, over a 1.60m track. Open to the top 50 individuals who carry penalties forward from the first individual qualifier and round one of the team event. Open to the top 10 teams following the previous day’s competition, including those tied for 10th place. All teams allowed to compete in round two of the team competition carry their penalties forward from the first individual qualifying competition and round one of the team competition. In case of equality of points there will be a jump-off for the team medal positions. 
  • Sunday 27th August: Individual final with round A open to 25 best-places riders and horses including ties for 25th place. Two different 1.60m courses will be jumped. Round B of the third competition is open to the twelve best placed riders and horses according to the cumulative penalties over the first and second competitions and round A of the third competition. Riders will start in reverse order of merits in both rounds. Individual medals will be determined by adding together penalties from the first competition, the two rounds of the team competition and the two rounds of the final competition.
