The Equestrian events were held at the Georgia International Horse Park in Conyers, United States, 30 miles or 50 km east of Atlanta.

For the first time in Olympic history, the three-day event individual and team events were held as two separate competitions. A rider could compete in both events, provided it was on different horses. This format would continue on to the 2000 Olympics.
