Romneys back in search of gold
Thu, 02 Aug 2012 7:38p.m.
The Romneys are back on the Olympics scene - but this time in search of a medal.
Rafalca, a 15-year-old, German-bred mare on the US dressage team, is part-owned by Mitt Romney's wife.
Ann Romney is expected to attend Rafalca's Olympic debut, which gets under way Thursday with the Grand Prix dressage test at Greenwich Park.
Dressage, which is better known in Europe than the US, is the equine equivalent of ballet. Horse and rider (wearing top hat and tails) go through a series of steps that look like the horse is dancing: twirling pirouettes, prancing trots and the crowd-pleasing "flying change," which looks like the horse is skipping.
