A record number of countries – 50 – will be competing in the equestrian events at the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games following the introduction of new formats that limit teams to three members, meaning that more countries will have the opportunity to compete on the Olympic stage than ever before.

Five nations that have never previously competed in Equestrian at an Olympic Games are sending athletes to Tokyo 2020: Estonia (individual Dressage), Israel (team and individual Jumping), Luxembourg (individual Dressage), Singapore (individual Dressage), and Sri Lanka (individual Jumping).

First time to field three teams in Equestrian at an Olympic Games: host nation Japan. They have previously had teams in these disciplines but never all together: Jumping in 1964; Eventing in 1976; and Dressage in 2008.

15 Horses are competing in Tokyo that also competed in Rio!

Youngest and Oldest Athletes competing at Equestrian in Tokyo 2020: Mary Hanna (AUS) - will be 67 at the end of the year // You Zang (CHN) - turned 20 in March this year.

Germany has won the most gold medals in Olympic equestrian sports, 26 to be exact, reflecting the country's equestrian heritage and passion for the sport. Sweden, France, the USA and Great Britain are among the other leading nations in equestrian sport.

Individually, the most medalled athlete is also from Germany – Dressage star Isabell Werth – who has 10 medals to her name following five Olympic appearances – including individual gold in 1996 with Gigolo, and team gold in 1992, 1996, 2000, 2008 and 2016. In Tokyo 2020, she is attending her sixth Olympic Games and vying to add more medals to her tally.

Takeichi Nishi is the only Japanese equestrian athlete to date to have won a medal in Equestrian, when he rode his horse Uranus to Individual Jumping gold at Los Angeles 1932.
