Ann Romney's horse fails to win a medal at London 2012
After Team GB celebrated another gold medal in the equestrian events at London 2012 yesterday, Team USA had reason to be disappointed.
And the reason fdor this is becuase Ann Romney’s horse will not be winning a medal at the London 2012 Olympics. The 15-year-old mare, that is part owned by the Republican presidential candidate’s wife, did not perform to the standard required on Tuesday in the dressage.
The horse, Rafalco, received a decent score on her trot earning 7.3 out of 10, however the horse had problems with transitions and her extended walk. In the end, Rafalco, being ridden by Jan Ebeling, finished in 28th place with an average score of 69.302.
