Great Britain's dressage team, which includes out equestrian rider Carl Hester won gold on Tuesday, while Team USA, featuring Jan Ebeling riding Ann Romney's horse Rafalca, placed sixth. Tuesday's win earned Hester, 45, his first Olympic medal.
The German team won the silver medal and the Dutch team, featuring out rider Edward Gal, took the bronze.
Romney, wife of presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney, said she was not disappointed that Ebeling and Rafalca would not advance to the individual round.
“It was wonderful,” she told CBS Sports. Rafalca, she said, “was elegant and consistent again. We just love her.”
