The Democratic National Committee (DNC) has offered its regrets for a video ad it used featuring Ann Romney’s dressage horse.

The ad showed the horse dancing in an effort to parody Mitt Romney for dancing around the issue of releasing more tax returns. The horse is jointly owned by the couple.

Ann Romney trains show horses as therapy for her multiple sclerosis. And she objected to the ad in an interview with Robin Roberts on ABC’s “Good Morning America.”

 “Our use of the Romneys’ dressage horse was not meant to offend Mrs. Romney in any way, and we regret it if it did,” DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse told ABC News.

“We were simply making a point about Gov. Romney’s failure to give straight answers on a variety of issues in this race. We have no plans to invoke the horse any further to avoid misinterpretation.”

The DNC had planned to run a series of ads starring the horse. President Barack Obama has stressed that the Romney family won’t be attacked in his ads.
