The dacoit was in the guise of a cripple beggar. When the hermit arrive at the spot. He asked for help to the hermit. The hermit took pity on the beggar not knowing who he really was. He offered the beggar a ride on the horse . As soon as the beggar rode the horse, he started running the horse. And from a distance laughed at the hermit. The hermit shouted at the dacoit that he can have the horse but requested the dacoit to not talk about this incident as people after knowing this will never help a poor guy in need. This is my attempt at a translation. I having some doubts in this sentence " he started running the horse." is correct in English?
