HAMPTON, Va. -- Since the summer, Patricia Bishop and her four hoofed companions have known only the solitude of the breeze and murmur coming off the waters of Hampton Roads. "It's me, the horses and my country music," said Bishop, Hampton University's stable manager. Starting this month, the waterfront stable will get more frequent visits when a small group of students begins to learn the basics of horsemanship as part of a new course being offered at the university. The Western Equestrian class will teach students horse riding for recreation and will include learning about proper care, handling and feeding of horses.

It will be the first offering of the discipline at the university and one of only a handful of programs supported by NASA in the nation.

As friends gather at Weaver's funeral in Baltimore today, police here say they are attempting to solve the slaying. And students at Hampton University -- an elite, traditionally black college -- are wondering how the violence might affect the institution Weaver attended.
