Participants54 from 18 countries
FormatOne round.

The event consisted of only one round of the course. The course was designed by August Andreae, who also designed the cross-country courses. The jumping course had 13 fences and 20 jumps spread over 1,050 metres. The one double and three triple combinations had to be jumped from both sides. The obstacles were between 1.30-1.60 metres in height, but for the jump-off most obstacles were raised and some distances were changed, with the water jump widened from 5 to 5.50 metres.

German Kurt Hasse and Romania’s Henri Rang tied with only 4 faults and entered a jump-off. In the jump-off they again tied on faults, with 4, but Haase won the gold medal based on time, 59.2 to 72.8 seconds. There was a three-way tie for third place, also requiring a jump-off for the bronze medal. In the jump-off, both Hungary’s József von Platthy and Belgium’s Georges Ganshof van der Meersch rode a clean round, with von Platthy winning the bronze medal on time, 62.6 to 69.0 seconds.
