Olympics
Go through the list of gold medallists in one of the most exciting sports of modern Olympics - Equestrian.

Equestrian

Being the only sport in the Olympics in which men and women compete with each other on equal terms, Equestrian probably is the one of the most anticipated and closely observed competitions in the Olympics. The sport, starting with Equestrian Jumping, made its debut in the 1900 Paris Games but was withdrawn until 1912 St Louis Games, in which Equestrian Dressage and Eventing too made their debut. Since then, the sport has been a regular feature of the Olympic Games. Over more than a century long history, it's the Germans that lead the table, winning 21 gold medals out of 133 and overall 42 medals out of 395. Sweden is the close second with 17 gold and 41 overall. In the last Olympic Games held in Beijing, Germany once again ruled the chart by claiming 3 out of 6 gold medals. In the 2012 London Games, it will be interesting to see whether Germany can hold its domination or if some other country will claim the gold. The competition will be held at Greenwich Park from 28th July to 9th August. 200 competitors, men and women, will compete against each other for the gold in all the three disciplines in 6 different events.
