Rio de Janeiro—Aug. 7
No one could catch William Fox-Pitt in this morning’s eventing dressage competition, but French rider Thiabaut Vallette helped boost his nation into the lead.
He and Qing du Briot scored a 41.0 to slot into individual fourth in the standings, allowing France to occupy three spots in the top 10 and the overall lead. Germany currently sits second and Great Britain’s in third.
