Well, the dressage world was getting closer to them, but Germany still won the gold medal, as they had at every Olympics since 1984. In fact, the podium in 2000 was the same as it had been in 1992 and 1996, with the Netherlands second and the United States third. Germany led the Netherlands by 53 points, after a 116 margin in Atlanta, and a huge 482 point gap in 1992. The United States was not close to the leading nations, trailing the Netherlands by 413 points, with their best rider, Christine Traurig, scoring less than the lowest scoring counting riders for both Germany and the Netherlands. Isabell Werth won her third consecutive gold medal and Anky van Grunsven won her third consecutive silver.
