Stephen Colbert’s new favorite athlete is Mitt Romney’s dressage horse

Lord help us all, Colbert has discovered the sport of dressage. This clip is making its way ’round the Facebooks this morning.

[Colbert Nation]

Sing it with me, Horse Nation:

“Take me out to the horse ring
Take me out to dressage.
Buy me some jodphurs and a velvet hat,
I don’t care if the orchestra’s flat,

Let me softly clap for the home horse,
If he don’t win he’ll be glue.
For it’s one, two, botched volte’s you’re out,
At the old United States Equestrian Federation National Dressage Championships In Gladstone, New Jerseyyy!”

Go Stephen Colbert.

    I love that man! I’m hoping there will be more dressage coverage since he made it the official sport of summer.

    Nice. I’m sure that will be sung at every dressage show ;)
