The Summer Olympic Games, first held in 1896, is an international multi-sport event that is hosted by a different city every four years.  The International Olympic Committee organizes the games and oversees the host city's preparations.  In each Olympic event, gold medals are awarded for first place, silver medals are awarded for second place, and bronze medals are awarded for third; this tradition began in 1904.  The Summer Paralympic Games is also awarded to the same city that hosts the Summer Olympic Games.

The United States has hosted four Summer Olympics (1904, 1932, 1984, 1996).  The United States also leads the all-time medal table.

The Summer Olympic Games includes the disciplines of Dressage, Eventing and Show Jumping.  The Summer Paralympic Games includes the discipline of Para-Dressage.
