Mail coach


31 entrants are listed for the 1900 Summer Olympics Equestrian mail coach competition event; all 29 of the riders are known by name (2 entered twice each). Beyond the top four competitors, it is unknown how many of the 31 entrants actually competed.

The contestants drove mail coaches drawn by four horses each.

Mallon and de Wael have included this event in their Olympic lists; however, those lists were created before the International Olympic Committee had made a decisive ruling on which events and sports at the 1900 and 1904 Summer Olympics were truly Olympic. The IOC does not list the winners of the mail coach event as medallists in its results database.
