Can a character start in a fast cav unit and benefit from its rule?

Like a goblin on a gigantic spider with spider riders or orc boss on boar with wolf riders.

7th Ed - can't remember.
8th Ed - no, they can't.

7th they get the movement rules of fast cav and nothing else (specifically they do not benefit from the Fast Cav LoS rules for shooting).

7th - If a character without the "Fast Cavalry" rule joins a Fast Cavalry unit they gain the movement rules for Fast Cavalry but not the LoS or shooting rules.

8th - If a character joins a unit of "Fast Cavalry" and they don't have the "Fast Cavalry" rule then the unit loses the "Fast Cavalry" rule until the character leaves.

If you start with a non Fast Cav character in a Fast Cav unit in 8th you miss out on your 12" move at the start of the game.
