She owns "extraordinarily expensive" horses and does a weird thing called "dressage," also called (they claim this) "horse ballet."

It was a rare moment of pique for Ann Romney, not meant for public consumption, and one that opened a window onto the private world of the would-be first lady. …

It also displays her fear of privacy loss, and a depth of feeling for a handful of extraordinarily expensive horses that she compares to maternal love. …

She soon fell in love with dressage, a fussy Olympic sport that is also called "horse ballet." …

Isn't that weird? Don't you hate her?
