Sixteen-year-old Roby Burch saddles up every morning and rides his horse, Jet, to the Haverford School in suburban Philadelphia.
Burch tells The Philadelphia Inquirer that the plan was hatched during a family vacation to a Montana cattle ranch. School officials allowed Burch to build a corral across the street from the athletic fields.
The sophomore leaves around 6 a.m. to beat traffic. After his four-mile ride, he sees to Jet's hay, grain and water, then changes into khakis for class.
As much as he loves the early morning rides, Burch still wants a set of wheels. He's hoping to get a truck when he turns 17.
