What is the relevancy of Epona?
Other than the Biggoron's Sword, the shooting minigame, and moving faster in Hyrule Field, is there any relevancy to Epona? In other words, is she required to finish the game or she is an optional instrument to make the game much easier for players?

Epona isn't required to finish the game, because you can use the longshot to cross the broken bridge in Gerudo Valley.
And that is the only time she can effectively be used through the main story line.
But she is required in the trading side-quest that lead to the Biggoron's Sword, beacuse you can't warp and by foot, you never make it if there is a timer. (Odd Mushroom, Eyeball Frog and the Eyedrops are timed)
But Epona is very handy indeed, you can travel quick through Hyrule Field, but for the "die hards", they can finish the game without Epona.

Well, you're supposed to use Epona to get across Gerudo Valley before freeing the carpenters, although you could just use a bomb jump to get across despite what the game intended.
