    Ask if you can take him over to HG's for a lesson and get her opinion on his potential. If she or an assistant is willing to sit on him and get a feel for his potential, all the better.

    Drive to office and shower: 9:15-9:30
    Work: 9:30 - whenever (7pm on an average day, midnight on a bad one) I'm a lawyer. I work when there is work to do. ...

    August 1st is Helmet Awareness Day. You can go to the website to find a participating retailer. I believe many brands will be 20% off.

    Look into whether you want to be a Pony Club Riding Center. It's a pretty new thing - but its meant to cater to lesson kids who don't have their own horses.
