LAT Now Vetting Ann Romney's Horses

She's wealthy, you know. And weird.

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." …

"Fussy Olympic sport."

Starting in 2003, coinciding with her purchase of Super Hit for about $105,000, Romney said she would frequently visit Moorpark from her Boston home, staying either in hotels or in a guesthouse on the ranch. When she is at her La Jolla beach house, she takes the train up from Del Mar. …

Dressage is not for the faint of wallet; it requires healthy outlays of cash for upkeep, training, transportation and veterinary care. It attracts some of the world's richest people — the daughter of billionaire New York Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg competes. …

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


Horse Ballet

Much worse than doin' a little blow.
