The three owners Beth Meyer, Amy Ebeling and Ann Romney watched from the stands as their horse, Rafalca, made her final appearance at the 2012 London Olympic Games. Ridden by Amy’s husband, Jan Ebeling, Rafalca’s score wasn’t enough to make the cut for Thursday’s dressage medal event. Only the top 18 move on to the freestyle portion of the competition. They all seemed to enjoy the ride – with Jan tipping his top hat at the end and the three women cheering from the stands.
"It was wonderful. She was elegant and consistent again. We just love her," said Ann Romney.
