Competition Format
A change to the Olympic competition format for Showjumping comes into play at Tokyo which will see the number of team members reduced from four to three with all scores counting.  Also the Individual medals will now be awarded prior to the Team ones.

The first Individual qualifier takes place on Tuesday 3 August with an expected 75 coming forward.  The Individual Final takes place the next day, Wednesday 4 August, with only the top 30 eligible to contest the medal positions.

Friday will see twenty teams come forward for the first Team qualifier before the top ten are invited back to compete in the Final on Saturday.
