I do not envy those who ride in the wagons. It is a long way from Mundburg to Edoras and I will gladly ride each mile. No need to change horses on this journey for we will not move quickly, but at the pace of the wagons.

Those in the wagons have all of our bedding under and around them, as soft as if they travelled in a royal bed. My leather saddle does not compare.

Yet every man in the wagons envies me. Not for my crown, but for my saddle – and two legs that can grip my horse.
