Play a Crucial Role in Your Well-Being

By Lindsey Bledsoe

DENNIS CUEVAS

and his gelding Tate
I own two horses: a bay thoroughbred gelding
named Tate who was sired by the 2000 Kentucky
Derby winner and serves as my dressage horse,
and a chestnut thoroughbred mare named Maddie
who serves as my event horse. The skills needed
to become an excellent equestrian are the same as
those needed to become an excellent lawyer: clear
communication, strong leadership, decisiveness,
trust, and definitely resilience. When horses are
involved, the only certainty is that you will have
good and bad days. When you fall off, you need to
brush off your insecurities and your fear and just get
back in that saddle. I try to ride my horses two to
three times a week when my schedule allows it.
When I don't ride, I become very grumpy!
Cuevas is director of the D.C. Bar Continuing Legal
Education Program.

BLAKE SORENSEN
and his dog Lycos,
a big Nats fan

Lycos, like many dogs, has a sense of when I've
had a hard day and is always ready to lay his head
on my lap and help me de-stress. He's also a trained
therapy dog, so he does his pro bono work when
we visit patients at the VA, sharing that same ability
to comfort anyone who needs it.

PATRICK McGLONE
and his dog Tonic

Tonic is unfailingly chipper, and his perky attitude
is a reliable pick-me-up at the end of a long day.
Just spending a few minutes playing with him
relieves stress. His name, it turns out, is a great fit
- Tonic's an effective tonic for daily anxieties.
D.C. Bar President McGlone is SVP, general counsel,
and chief compliance officer at Ullico Inc.

Sorensen is patent counsel at HP, Inc.
