“I don’t want to ride my pony any longer!” cried Eldarion. “I want to ride Roheryn. I’m a big boy now! Ponies are for babies.”
“And Roheryn is a great horse that only a man can ride,” said Aragorn.” He has weathered many battles and will suffer only a seasoned warrior on his back.” As if to prove his master’s point, the mighty warhorse whinnied and reared, showing his great hooves.
“He would throw you,” Aragorn warned. “Then you would break a bone and be confined to your bed.”
“I think I will ride my pony after all,” said Eldarion.
