During our wide-ranging talk, Foster reveals that she’s a true Garth Brooks fan, quickly naming her favourite Garth song: Lonesome Dove. The lesser-known song might be a surprising choice for the Olympic show jumper, but the emotional storyline is a window into why she chooses it as her favourite. The song tells the tale of a woman on a wagon train who falls in love and marries a ranger in Lonesome Dove. Years later her husband is killed, leaving the woman to raise their young son all alone in the harsh land. The son grows up and follows in his father’s footsteps to become a ranger himself. One day the young man hears that the men who killed his father will be Tiffany Foster and Brighton win the $35,000 2016 Ruby et Violette WEF Challenge Cup Round VIII for owners Artisan Farms and Torrey Pines Stable.
