- Equestrian at the 1900 Summer Olympics
1900 Summer Olympics, five equestrian events were contested. Only three are currently considered Olympic by the International Olympic Committee. It is not certain how many competitors there were, but it is likely that there were between 37 and 64 [Mallon has 47 known competitors, giving no estimate for unknowns. Most of the known competitors are in the non-Olympic mail coach event. De Wael claims 16 unknowns and adds a 48th name to the known list, for a total of 64. Both sources include all five events, rather than merely the three the IOC has designated Olympic.] . Calculation of number of competitors is complicated by the fact that a rider might enter an event multiple times on different horses. Five nations competed in the Olympic events, with three more ( Germany, Spain, and Austria) in the non-Olympic competitions. There was a female rider, Elvira Guerra, but she competed only in the non-Olympic hacks and hunter combined event.
An estimated total of 60 riders from 5 nations (excluding riders known to have competed only in the non-Olympic events) competed at the Paris Games:
