Equine Industry


Historically, equestrian sport debuted in the 1900 summer Olympic Games with individual show jumping. After a hiatus, equestrian sport resumed in 1912 with both individual and team show jumping and eventing, as well as individual dressage. Team dressage was added in 1928. With the exception of its omission from the 1960 Olympic Games, 18 medals have since been sought after by top athletes from countries around the world every four years. This study measures those factors that statistically determine the share of the 18 medals obtained by country during the last consecutive seventeen summer Olympic Games.
