This event was called the Prize Riding Event in the Official Report, was similar to, but not precisely the same as what we now know as dressage. In addition to the dressage tests, there were a number of obstacles to negotiate. Four of these had a height between 0.8-1.1 metres, one had a length of 3.0 metres, and one was a rolling barrel 0.8 metre in diameter. The Swedes dominated the competition, their six riders finishing in the top eight places, and sweeping the medals. The gold medalist, Carl Bonde, did not compete at the 1920 or 1924 Olympics, but in 1928 at Amsterdam, he was on the Swedish dressage team which won the silver medal. In the 1928 individual dressage he placed 19th. Bonde was awarded the The Emperor of Austria’s Challenge Prize, in addition to his gold medal.
