Ireland's Greg Broderick and his horse HMS Going Global had two poles on the floor as he began his Rio journey with eight faults in the first round of the individual showjumping competition at Deodora Olympic Park.
The Tipperary native and his 10-year-old gelding looked set for a clear round but incurred eight faults in the final sequence of fences.
The pair are in a tie for 53rd overall after the first round of qualification.
The top 60 advanced to Tuesday's second individual qualifier, just 45 will then go through to Wednesday's qualifier and the Top 35 after that round will go through to Friday's final.
Broderick will probably need to go clear on Tuesday and Wednesday to book a place in the finale.
