LONDON (AP) Britain beat the Netherlands in a jumpoff for the Olympic gold medal in team show jumping.
Saudi Arabia finished with the bronze Monday while the United States tied for sixth after all four of its team riders knocked down fences.
Three members of Britain's four-man team - Nick Skelton, Ben Maher and Peter Charles - rode clear rounds in the jumpoff. Scores from the final round in the team competition are combined with scores from Sunday's first round.
Saudi Arabia held the lead with only one penalty point after the first round. Four countries, including Britain and the Netherlands, were tied for second with four faults each.
