13. Ann's therapeutic riding has lead her into supporting this sport at the highest levels.

Ann does not own Rafalca to treat her MS, she has other therapeutic riding horses to ride. She owns and supports Rafalca because she loves the sport after coming into the horse world via her MS. She has the money to support it at the highest levels and probably is enthralled to be "behind the scenes" at the Olympics. Honestly some of these sports do need deep pockets to ensure they stay alive - like fencing, rowing etc. They aren't like tennis or basketball where there are big corporate sponsors - most of the horses and riders are supported by big money people like the Rmoneys.

None of this is a secret. All of this is very well known in the horse world. If dailykos or anyone else in the MSM doesn't "know" anything about this, they simply aren't asking.
