Ann Romney has proved a deep-pocketed dressage patron, and thanks to her
husband being in the public eye, she has single-handedly gained the sport
more attention than it has ever received in America, in spite of celebrating
its centenary in the Olympics.

Both Romneys have said that they will be attending the opening ceremony, and
perhaps they will now find a way to buy some dressage tickets, too.

“The image of Romney as a privileged princeling ends today, because now Mitt
is just your average blue-collar fan of dressage,” comedian Stephen Colbert
was quoted
as saying
in The New York Times.
