Competition formatEdit

The team and individual jumping competitions used the same results. The course was 786 metres long with 13 obstacles. The time limit was 1 minute, 57.2 seconds (400 m/min). Penalty points were received for obstacle faults (3, 4, 6, or 8 points based on severity) or exceeding the time limit (0.25 points per second or fraction thereof over the limit). A third refusal or jumping an obstacle out of order resulted in elimination. Scores from the two runs were added together for a total individual score. The scores from the three team members were added to give a team score.
