Entries in for London 2012 Olympic Equestrian Events

Athletes from 40 countries on six continents will compete in the equestrian events of the London 2012 Olympic Games, which get underway on July 28. The list of entries validated by the London Organizing Committee for the Olympic and Paralympic Games is now available on the Fédération Equestre Internationale website.

Continuing the Olympic tradition, jumping is the strongest discipline with 26 nations represented, but dressage--for the first time--has overtaken eventing for the second highest number of nations taking part, with 23 and 22 entries, respectively.

Seven nations--Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, Sweden, and the United States--will be represented by teams in all three Olympic equestrian disciplines of jumping, dressage, and eventing. Four countries--Germany, the Netherlands, the USA, and host nation Great Britain--have qualified the maximum number of 13 riders.

The Olympic equestrian events will take place from July 28 to August 9 at Greenwich Park. The equestrian events will boast 200 riders (76 women and 124 men) from 40 nations (ARG, AUS, AUT, AZE, BEL, BER, BLR, BRA, CAN, CHI, COL, DEN, ECU, EGY, ESP, FIN, FRA, GBR, GER, IRL, ITA, JAM, JOR, JPN, KSA, MAR, MEX, NED, NOR, NZL, POL, POR, RSA, RUS, SUI, SWE, SYR, THA, UKR, and USA)
