Ann Romney is an avid rider who took up the sport of dressage more than a decade ago as part of her therapy for multiple sclerosis. But we’re told that riding won’t play a role in the event, which takes place at 11:45 a.m.

Romney, President Obama and their high-profile surrogates have made multiple visits to Virginia, one of a handful of key battleground states expected to determine the race for president.
