Individual and team eventing were held concurrently at the 1936 Berlin Olympics over four days. Eventing cross-country took place at a military exercise field in Brandenburg called the Truppenübungsplatz. It was a controversial course, especially the fourth jump, a water jump, and it was so difficult that three horses were severely injured and had to be euthanized. The competitions were restricted to military officers and men, as they would be until 1964 for eventing. Germany won team and individual eventing, and in fact, won all six equestrian events in 1936, with Ludwig Stubbendorff winning the individual title.
