Olympic Games

The equestrian events in the Olympics are the only sport that includes both men and women. Equestrian consists of three disciplines with both teams competing and individual riders competing for medals. These disciplines include dressage, eventing, and show jumping. The Olympic Games’ equestrian events are overseen by the International Equestrian Federation (the Fédération Equestre Internationale, or FEI), which is based out of Switzerland. The United States Equestrian Team is chosen by U.S. Equestrian (formerly the U.S. Equestrian Federation). Horse Illustrated brings you previews about the Olympic Games, coverage from the event, photos of the leading horse-and-rider combinations, and news about medal winners.
