1906 Intercalated Games

The Netherlands boycotted the 1956 Summer Olympics in Melbourne, Australia because of the Soviet Union's invasion of Hungary. However, the equestrian events for the 1956 Games were held in Stockholm, Sweden five months earlier (because of Australian quarantine regulations), and one Dutch rider competed.
