3. Rafalca is a dressage specialist, not a "3-day-event" all-around horse.

What's going on right now is called "event", which used to be called the "3-day-event" because it takes 3 days of competition for both horse and rider:

Day 1: Dressage
Day 2: Cross-country race (against the clock)
Day 3: Show jumping

In other words, this competition is about all-around horses, not dressage or show-jumping specialists. Those comes later in the Games, and those are separate competitions with different horses and riders.

5. So our tax dollars are being spent to subsidize a literal one-trick-pony. Just awesome :sarcasm:

11. 4th place would be even better.

 

The 'close but no cigar' narrative would work well for us.
