12. I'm a pro in the dressage (and combined training) business. You're right, she rides other horses

Rafalca is just that - a business investment. I doubt anyone else rides Rafalca except her trainer Jan Ebeling - I've heard the mare is hot and temperamental so it wouldn't take much for someone new to agitate her. Her value lies in how well she performs so it would be silly to put anyone on her who isn't a pro to ensure her breeding and resale value.

Ann's horses are lovely quality dressage horses but they are nowhere near Olympic (or even international level) standards. Therapeutic riding has a long, long history for physical and emotional therapy for things like MS, PTSD, cerebral palsy, amputees, depression, head trauma, autism etc. etc.
