Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke caused a splash by riding a horse to his first day of work:

The Hill reported:

He’s an ardent hunter, fisherman and outdoorsman, and pledged in the Senate to oppose any attempt at large-scale transfers of federal land—long a goal of some conservatives in the West.

“I am an unapologetic admirer of Teddy Roosevelt and believe he had it right when he placed under federal protection millions of acres of federal lands and set aside much of it as national forests,” Zinke told senators in January. “Today, much of those lands provide American’s the opportunity to hike, fish, camp, recreate and enjoy the great outdoors.”

His credentials earned him the support of 15 Democrats and numerous conservation groups.
