LocationPiazza di Siena, Villa Borghese, Roma / Centro Equestre Federale, Pratoni del Vivaro
Participants72 from 18 countries
FormatFour rider teams, best three scores to count for the team total. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.

This event was different as it was contested with four riders for the first time, with only the top three total scores to count towards the team score. In the opening dressage phase Sweden led, followed by the Soviet Union and then Germany. As always, the endurance phase is critical in the three-day event, and Australia won this phase by a large margin to take an almost insurmountable lead into jumping, but Australia’s Brian Crago did not finish the endurance phase, which meant that all three Australian riders had to take part and finish the jumping for them to win. This meant that Bill Roycroft would have to start, but Roycroft sustained a concussion and a broken collarbone in the endurance competition, and was hospitalized. He insisted on leaving the hospital and riding the next day in the jumping and helped Australia win the gold medal. Australia was led by Lawrence Morgan and Neale Lavis, who finished 1-2 in the individual event.
