FormatOne round.

Individual jumping consisted of one round of competition on a course that was 720 metres in length, with 16 obstacles at a height of 1.25-1.40 metres, and was considered to be rather easy, as seven horse/riders went clear. This led to a jump-off with the three eventual medalists again riding a clear round, while three of the others had two faults, and Italy’s Francesco Fourquet was disqualified in the jump-off, placing him seventh. The three riders with two perfect rides contested a second jump-off, which was won by Czechoslovakia František Ventura on Eliot, who again was clear for the gold medal. To increase the difficulty, in the second jump-off some obstacles were raised to 1.60 metres high. Silver went to France’s Pierre Bertran de Balanda on Papillon, who had two faults in the third ride, while the bronze was won by Switzerland’s Charles-Gustave Kuhn on Pepita. All three medalists competed for the only time at the Olympics.
