On his first official day as Secretary of the Interior, Ryan Zinke rode a horse to work from the National Mall stables to the Interior Department while wearing a cowboy hat and greeting the 350 federal employees of the department.

The gesture was meant to mark not just Zinke’s first day, but also the anniversary of the Interior Department, which is responsible for the management of federal lands and natural resources, NBC News reported.
