A horse got me out of bed … and living life,” Ann Romney told the Ocala Star-Banner recently, referring to how horseback riding, and specifically the art of dressage, has helped her overcome some of the debilitating symptoms of MS. “Horses are great teachers. Horses are great companions. They bring us great joy,” she enthused, but you’d have no idea of the depth and richness of her involvment were your primary “news” source MSNBC and Sarah Palin’s “lamestream” media.
