Ride Your Horse to Work
Clay Stott, rangeland management specialist, hung up his keys last week and saddled up instead as he began to ride his horse to work at the Elko District BLM.
The horse goes by the name of Ruby, and “parking” for her is in the backyard of the Elko District.
Stott said the trot not only saves him money, but he started the horseback ride to build Ruby’s muscles because he plans on selling her soon.
Ruby’s corral provides her shade and water, and it’s where she patiently waits for her owner to get off work so they can begin their trot home.
Stott has had to adjust his leaving time to accommodate his new way of commute. Stott said his house is about 6 miles from work, a commute that would only take a few minutes by vehicle. “It takes anywhere from forty five minutes to an hour now,” said Stott.
