Re: Epona?

Ok here what I do, at the start of the race try to get directly in front of him, that'll slow him down (I think), as for carrots, try to save at least 2 each time so they regenerate faster then use them all at the very end. Also try to stay close to the fence so you move around the track faster but not so close as to slow you down.

Re: Epona?

If your on Epona it should be easy,

I usualy use three carrots, not all at the same time, and wait until they
recharge. then use whats left after the final corner.
Also, if you stay just infront of him, making sure he doesn't get past
you can beat him easily.

You have to beat him twice I think.

Re: Epona?

Yeah you do, first time he can't believe it and asks for a re-match, second time if you win you get epona and then he won't let you out the ranch so you'll have to jump over one of the many fences surrounding Lon Lon Ranch.

Re: Epona?

I loved it when i first won the race against ingo, (i had a mate round to give me a hand on Ocarina of Time, it was my birthday then). I cheered quietly when i won the race only to realise that i had to race again, that cheezed me off, but i won the race again and took epona as my prize.

Re: Epona?

I had a hard time winning too. Persistance is what it takes. Save a few carrots for a final burst of speed. I can't remember exactly how I won...just that it took me many tries. The more I lost though...the more I wanted to win! LOL! Hers a hint for you though....Make sure you have the largest wallet. That way if you lose and Ingo takes 50 of your rupes, you talk to him again right away and he doesn't charge you another 10 to race again.

Re: Epona?

I think that was one of the moments in OoT, escaping from the Lon Lon ranch. Just seeing Epona jump the fence, that was great.

hey, hey, now... don't TRY to encourage the whole animal abuse thing this game tempts you to do... (gawd i hated it when they swarmed me the first time, and i had no clue they would just start attacking me... funny and scary at the same time)

anyways, i always found the race easy if you just kept as close as you could to the fence without running into it actually... you squeeze in just in front of Ingo every time...

but now that you have the race finished, you can go back and talk to Malon (singing as usual in front of the horse pen) and if you talk to her like twice, you can do the obstacle course!!! if you do it under 50 secs, you get a prize...

Re: Epona?

Beating Malon's obstacle course record is the hard thing - but you get an amazing prize! Though you can't take it about with you. Have you ever wondered what it eats, inside your house the whole time?

Re: Epona?

You can see epona jump the fence several times over, when I'm in the Lon Lon ranch and am too lazy to go out the rugular way I just ran at the fence thinking nothing would happen and then I see the cut-scene again. I could ride Epona around Hyrule feild all day (and one time I did spend a few hours just riding around)

Re: Epona?

I remember when I first won the obstacle course, now that took a long time.
I think the fastest I ever compleated it in was 48 seconds, or just under.
What you win is quite useless.

How did they get it up the ladders?

Re: Epona?

That obstacle cource and the race is easy. At the beginning of the race use 1-3 carrots, and go straight with no turning, you pass him up before the first turn.

The obstacle course is pretty easy, I don't use carrots for the small fences, and a few spots where you can use 1 carrot to go over 2 fences. I can get it done in under 45 sec.

Ohhh and to do the obstacle course, you have to be on Epona to be able to do it.
