(Newser) – It looks like the Romneys have a shot at Election 2012 and London 2012: Rafalca, the dressage horse that Ann Romney co-owns with trainer Jan Ebeling, is currently sitting in third place at the United States Equestrian Federation National Dressage Championships, reports ABC News. If Ebeling and Rafalca are able to stay in the top three when the championships wrap up next weekend, they'll qualify for a spot on the US Dressage Team in the Olympics. Romney reportedly attended the event over the opening weekend. "I was really happy that they could all make it," said Ebeling. "I think it is wonderful for our sport to have that visibility."
