High school senior Brad Walker from Rockwood, TN has found a solution to high gas prices. He has decided to ride his horse, Pumpkin, to school. It takes him about 45 minutes to make the four mile trek from his home to school. The cost is about $1 a day. His “green” plan may come to an end due to an increased demand for coral space. More students are wanting to ride horses to school unfortunately the school’s coral only holds one horse.
Surprisingly, riding a horse is not considered a totally green from of transportation because horse droppings are considered illegal emissions.
I think it is a great idea and I hope Walker is able to continue riding Pumpkin. He is certainly thinking outside the box or maybe it is outside the coral.
