    1. Epona The Horse
    	Epona is Link's horse in the game. Using her, you can travel around
    the land of Hyrule much quicker. Though getting her is not such an easy
    task, but it is if you know what to do.
    2. Getting Epona
    	To get Epona, first visit Lon Lon Ranch as a child. Talk to the girl
    in the field, Malon and then hold out your ocarina. Malon will then teach
    you Epona's Song. (Up C, Left C, Right C, Up C, Left C, Right C)
    	Go back to Lon Lon Ranch when you're an adult and then you will see
    that Ingo has taken over. Talk to Ingo and he'll offer you time to ride a
    horse. Pay the Rupees necessary and ride Epona. Call her by playing Epona's
    Song and she'll come to you. Ride around and waste the time, then when your
    time's up, talk to Ingo again and pay him the Rupees again. Play Epona's
    Song once again and Epona will come to you again. After climbing up on her,
    talk to Ingo and he'll talk about you becoming better and he'll challenge
    you to a little race. Bet the Rupees and prepare to race.
    	The first race isn't too hard. At the begining, Ingo will try to
    smash you up against the wall, making you go slower, but use about 3 carrots
    and zoom ahead of him. Just keep a steady pace by using only 1 carrot.
    If you do so, you will win.
    	Ingo will then complain and say that if you beat him again you can
    keep Epona. This time the race is a bit harder. Ingo will do the same thing,
    try to smash you against the wall, but use about 4 carrots and race ahead
    of him. He will be right behind you at times, but block him from taking
    the lead. In this race, use about 3 or 4 carrots to stay in the lead.
    	When you win, congratulations, Epona is yours, but Ingo won't let
    you get out of the ranch. To get out, just use about 3 carrots and jump
    over the wall. If you do it correctly, you will be in Hyrule Field!
    3. What Epona Can Do
    	Mostly Epona can make you go around Hyrule faster. She helps a lot
    when you have to do the Biggoron Sword trading sequence. When you want to
    get over a little fence, just speed up a bit and she'll hop over. That's
    about it.
    4. Secrets
    	Play Epona's Song in front of a cow and the cow will give you free
    Lon Lon Milk!
    	If you wish to do some more racing, head back to Lon Lon Ranch after
    getting Epona and you'll see that it is once again peaceful. Talk to Malon,
    who is in front of all the horses in their pen, and she'll talk to you about
    having Epona. Then she'll say that she'll give you something if you win
    her little obstacle course. You must beat it in 49 seconds.
    	The obstacle course isn't that easy. Use carrots to jump over the
    larger fences and speed up only when necessary. It will take a few tries,
    but you'll win it eventually. After beating it in 49 seconds, Malon will
    tell you that the prize is too large and it was delivered to your house.
    	Head back to Kokiri Forest and go back into your house where you
    started out as a kid. You'll go inside and see that you have gotten a
    free cow!
