Using horse power to get to school

High school senior Bradley Walker is coping with the high price of gas with some horsepower.

Bradley is riding his horse Pumpkin to school in Rockwood, Tennessee.

He figures he saves about 25 bucks a week thanks to Pumpkin.

The ride takes 45 minutes compared to a 10 minute drive.

While Bradley is in class, his horse stays in a makeshift stall behind the school.

School officials are looking for more stall space, in case other students want to ride instead or drive.
