CAEN, France (AP) -- William Fox-Pitt of Britain took the overall lead in the eventing competition at the World Equestrian Games with a clean ride in the cross-country portion on Saturday.

Fox-Pitt, a runner-up at the 2010 Games in Lexington, Kentucky, was second after Friday's dressage test. He will go into Sunday's show jumping portion with a small lead over Germans Sandra Auffarth and Michael Jung, second and third respectively, and New Zealanders Jonelle Price and Andrew Nicholson.

In the team competition, Germany was 8.9 points clear of Britain. Australia was a distant third.

Eventing is an Olympic discipline made up of three portions: dressage, cross country and show jumping.

The World Equestrian Games end on Sept. 7.
