Carl Adolf Ragnar Olson (10 August 1880 – 10 July 1955) was a Swedish horse rider who competed in the 1928 Summer Olympics. He won a bronze medal in the individual dressage competition with his horse Günstling, and a silver medal as part of the Swedish dressage team.[1]

Olson lived in Hässleholm in southern Sweden. He became famous for housing, during the winter of 1918–1919, the exiled German army chief Erich Ludendorff, after the German World War I capitulation in 1918.[2][3]
