New Port Richey, Florida -- Cara Hacht and Jane Mundy are fed up with paying too much for gas, so they're protesting.
Once a month, the women say they'll be trading in their car keys for a one horse power ride to work - their horses Maya and Black Hawk.
"Since I'm a chiropractor, we do alternative care of medicine, so we thought why not do an alternative way to get to work?" said Hacht, who practices in New Port Richey.
On Monday, the women met at Mundy's Hudson home, where they keep the horses, and saddled up for the 5-mile ride into work. A normal commute would take a matter of minutes, but Monday's trot in took closer to an hour.
There were pit stops along the way, including a trot through the bank drive-thru to make a deposit. Then there was a quick stop at the local feed store for a snack for Maya and Black Hawk.
There was no stopping at the neighborhood gas station, although it sparked a lot of conversation.
