Competition formatEdit

The team and individual dressage competitions used the same results. A test was to be carried out from memory by each rider within 17 minutes, losing half a point for every second over the time limit.[2] There were 40 individual movements in the test.[3] For each movement, each judge gave a score from 0 to 10; this score was multiplied by the movement's coefficient.[4]
