Date24 – 25 September 1988 — 09:00-18:00
LocationSeo-ul Gyeong-ma Gong-won, Gwacheon
Participants43 from 11 countries
FormatFour rider teams. Top three scores count towards team total.

For the first time, this event allowed four riders per team, with only the top three scores in the individual qualifying to count towards the team score. Germany, or in 1988 still West Germany, was at the early phase of its absolute dominance of this event. They had won in 1964, 1968, 1976, and 1984, and they could not compete in 1980 because of the American-led boycott. West Germany won easily again in 1988, and as Germany, would continue winning through 2008. Switzerland, traditionally the second best nation in this discipline, won the silver medal as they had in 1976 and 1984. Canada came in for the bronze medal, the only equestrian medal won by Canada in Seoul.
