West German riders had finished 2-3-4 in the individual dressage so their team victory in this event was won with a huge margin of 471 points over Switzerland. West Germany had not won in 1972, and would not compete in 1980 because of the American-led boycott. However, West Germany or Germany has otherwise won this event at every Olympics from 1964-2008. Switzerland was led by the individual champion Christine Stückelberger. The United States finished third with an all-female team of Hilda Gurney, Dorothy Morkis, and Edith Master. This was also done in 1956 by the German silver medalists.
