The Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) has published the list of nominated entries for the London 2012 Olympic Games equestrian events and the entries for the para-dressage teams competing at the 2012 Paralympic Games, also taking place in London.

The lists of nominated entries are available online for both the Olympic teams and the Paralympic teams.

Both lists detail the athletes and horses that have achieved the minimum eligibility standards required for London 2012, and qualified National Federations will make their final selection of teams and individuals from this list.
