LocationSeo-ul Gyeong-ma Gong-won, Gwacheon / Gyeong-ma Gyu-yug-won, Won-dang, Goyang
Participants40 from 10 countries
FormatFour rider teams, best three scores to count for the team total. Team/individual competitions held concurrently.

The endurance course was designed by Hugh Thomas. It was held at Wondang Ranch, 43 km north of Kwachon, which was a hilly terrain and after inspection, six of the obstacles had to be lowered and the first element of #27 was removed. The four phases measured a total of 26,761 metres in length. The favorites were considered to be Great Britain, the World and European Champions, and West Germany. West Germany led the opening dressage phase, and also won the endurance phase, opening up a 37 point lead going into the jumping. New Zealand had been third in the dressage and second in endurance so came into the jumping in second, followed by Great Britain and Poland. West Germany placed only fifth in jumping, but still easily won the gold medal. Australia won the jumping, which moved them up from sixth to fifth place, but Great Britain tied for second with France in jumping, moving Great Britain up to the silver medal, as New Zealand dropped back to bronze, finishing only sixth in the jumping. Germany would not win this event again until 2008, as Australia would become the power in the sport, winning the gold medal in 1992, 1996, and 2000.
