From Jason Horowitz's profile of Georgette Mosbacher — a prominent Republican donor — and her behind-the-scenes sister:
At the convention, they could be seen bickering outside exclusive donor powwows (“Don’t be upset,” Georgette pleaded with Lyn outside a brunch organized by billionaire Paul Singer. “It was an honest mistake.”) or giddily relaying how Ann Romney, for whom Georgette has served on the host committee for several fundraisers in New York, privately reacted to Democratic attacks on her dressage-competing mare. (“My horse has more style and more class in its hoof than they do in their whole deal,” Lyn recounts.)
The Democratic National Committee used Ann Romney's dressage horse, Rafalca, in a Web ad over the summer, but quickly pledged to no longer "invoke the horse" out of desire to not offend her. The liberal group MoveOn.org continued to use the dancing horse to paint the Romneys as out-of-touch. Romney herself told "Good Morning America" that the focus on Rafalca "makes me laugh."
