Fouaad Mirza finished with a total of 64 points from six qualifying events to seal his Tokyo 2020 berth.   -  SPECIAL ARRANGEMENT

Qualification process:

The 200 quota places for equestrian at the 2020 Summer Olympics were divided between the three disciplines (75 for jumping, 65 for eventing, and 60 for dressage). Teams in each discipline consisted of three horse and rider pairs; any NOC that qualified a team (20 teams for jumping, 15 each for eventing and dressage) also received 3 entries in the individual competition for that discipline. NOCs that did not qualify teams could earn one individual place in that discipline (15 entries in jumping and dressage, 20 for eventing). Teams qualify primarily through specific competitions (World Equestrian Games and continental tournaments), while individuals qualified through ranking.

India Watch:

Fouaad Mirza secured an Olympic quota after finishing as the top-ranked rider in Group G for the South East Asia, Oceania in the individual eventing category in the qualifiers. He secured the Minimum Eligibility Requirement (MER) on both his horses - his Asian Games double-silver medal-winning partner Seigneur Medicott and Dajara 4, and has chosen the latter to be his ride in Tokyo.
