While team mixed gendered sports are not competed at the Olympics, some mixed gendered events are included. They include equestrian sports, shooting and sailing where men and women compete against each other. In shooting and sailing, women were originally only allowed to competed in mixed gendered events. Single gender events for these sports were not added until a later date.

The events of the Equestrian sports in the summer Olympics are always with mixed teams.

In the Show Jumping, Dressage and Eventing disciplines men and women compete on equal terms. This is both in the individual and team events.

The sport of Equestrianism has always been mixed, not just in the Olympic games.
