LONDON, England (TheSpread) – Equestrian is the one sport in the 2012 Olympics where men and women compete on the same field. Here is a look at the odds to win the gold in Equestrian events.
There are six events at the Olympics involved in Equestrian, but only three events have odds listed and all are in the team category. In two of the three events, Great Britain is favored to win. Germany is the favorite in the other.
