The competition runs from Wednesday 30 August to Sunday 3 September, with the vet-check and warm-up for all competitors on Tuesday.

The sport begins on Wednesday with the first round against the clock for all competitors (team and individual), from which scores and times are converted to penalties. There then follows two rounds of team competition (four riders per nation) on Thursday and Friday, which also count as individual qualifiers. The team medals are decided on Friday 1 September.

The championships conclude with two rounds of individual jumping on Sunday afternoon (3 September). The top 25 combinations will have qualified for round one, with just 12 going on to round two after which the final individual medals will be presented.
