I seriously teared up I was laughing so hard. Dressage is so a fancy pants sport. I would never deny that. I mean, we show in WHITE! When we go to a big show we tailgate with Champagne, not Schlitz. I am considered trashy in the dressage world, but am applauded for my manners elsewhere in life. The Romney’s are rich and so they can afford to do things like sponsor a top dressage horse.

With his third place finish at the Olympic selection trials it looks likes that stunning mare might very well be headed to London, which means dressage has many more weeks of mocking to go…
