Olympic Opening Ceremony 1956 Stockholm Equestrian Games (Amateur Footage) [02:23]
After the IOC awarded the Games of the XVIth Olympiad to Melbourne in Victoria, Australia they learned that Australian quarantine laws required a six-month quarantine period for horses entering the country. As the six-month quarantine made it impractical for competitors horses to be transported to Australia, this precluded Melbourne from being able to host the equestrian events at the 1956 Olympic Games. It was decided, actually in violation of the Olympic Charter, to contest separate Equestrian Olympic Games in Stockholm, Sweden, from 10 through 17 June 1956. At the 50th IOC Session in Athens on 13 May 1954, Stockholm was chosen to host the Equestrian Olympics over Paris, France; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Berlin, Germany; and Los Angeles, California, USA. The 1956 Equestrian Games were held without major political incidents, although some would occur a few months later and affect the Games in Melbourne in November. The opening ceremony was quite unusual as all competitors came in on their mounts, including the flag bearers. Hans Wikne brought the Olympic Flame into the stadium on horseback and lit the main torch. Karin Lindberg and Henry Eriksson held lighted torches, ran towards the stadium tower with the torches and lit flames there.

The unexpected popularity of this video has made me decide to add a description to this video. This was in England in 1956. The horse was uninjured and those who keep insisting he was need to learn how to use a search engine and stop swearing at me and telling me that I do not know anything about horses. I am very sorry that you have not reached a point in your life where you can just look it up. The horse and jockey where unharmed; the horse had a slightly sore back from this unique accident. It could have been much worse, but Devon Loch lived for years after the incident and even raced again.
