Egypt boycotted the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia because of the British and French involvement in the Suez Crisis. However, the equestrian events for the 1956 Games were held in Stockholm, Sweden five months earlier (because of Australian quarantine regulations), and three Egyptian riders competed.
