I haven’t played Ocarina of Time in forever. I remember the quest for getting Epona being relatively fun… if you didn’t lose the race. Or if you didn’t forget to learn Epona’s song in the first place. Aaagh! But it’s worth it not to have to run all over Hyrule. 😀
Although, the first few times I played this, I used to be irritated that no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t ride away with one of the prettier brown horses instead… haha!
