London Olympics: Equestrian DressageThe two Olympic Equestrian Dressage events - Individual and Team - take place at Greenwich Park in the River Zone from Thursday 2 to Thursday 9 August. The Dressage event is similar to the Rhythmic Gymnastics floor exercise - except it's on horseback and there is no jumping involved. The horse and rider perform a series of movements in a 60m x 20m arena before a panel of seven judges, who award points for both the overall routine and individual movements. Points scored by competitors in the Individual event may also be counted in the Team event: the two competitions run simultaneously, with the top 18 performers in the Grand Prix Special Team event going on to compete in the Individual finals, which includes the Grand Prix Freestyle event, where routines are set to music. Germany, Sweden, France and USA are the most successful nations in the history of Dressage since its inception back in 1900. Equestrian, incidentally, is the only Olympic sport in which men and women compete against each other on equal terms.
