Ann Romney- Stay-at-home-Mom or Horsing around?

What stay-at-home Mom can't relate to Ann Romneys choice to be a homemaker? I mean raising 5 boys AND being involved in World Championship Equestrian dressage competitions, importing horses from Europe winning awards, and having $250,000 worth of horses is a lot of work. Plus her husband was Governor of MA for a while, and now in his second run for president.
Most of us don't know what it's like being a multi millionaire, multi mansion, stay-at-home Mom. Just managing the staff must have been quite the workload!

But Ann Romney literally takes the prize & has won many equestrian awards in her spare time.

She has received recognition in dressage as an adult amateur at the national level, including earning her 2006 Gold Medaland 2005 Silver Medal at the Grand Prix level from the United States Dressage Federation.She also sometimes competes in professional dressage events and has broken the 60% level at Grand Prix. Romney works with California trainer Jan Ebling, who schools her and her horses in dressage and works with her importing new stock from Europe. The pair qualified for the Pan-Am games in 2004. By 2011, the horses she owned in California were valued at more than $250,000.
