Rio 2016: Switzerland and horses!

Aug 5, 2016

The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro are about to kick off. Switzerland has a rich history in the Olympic disciplines, and the Swiss Olympic team at the XXXI Olympiad will no doubt do its best to make its mark in Brazil. The House of Switzerland invites you to discover in a surprising way the sporting categories in which Switzerland has performed brilliantly in the past and will attempt to make waves in the world's capital of Samba! #HoppSwiss

Horse sports

  • Equestrian (6-19 August)

The Swiss love their horses and their horses do well in return. Switzerland has an almost perfect record of 23 Olympic medals in 24 Olympic Games, and this year it is counting on the aptly named Bonne Chance CW, as well as Noe des Vatys, Quorida de Treho, Castlefield Eclipse, Onfire, Clooney 51, Nino des Buissonnets and smeyers Molberg to continue the tradition at the various equestrian events in Deodoro.
