Indo-European Horse?????

Post by Vakavaka Pakapaka on Thu Jul 20, 2017 12:30 pm

.....These days, when people think of horses, the Arabian horse comes to mind. But, is the Arabian horse, native to S Arabia?  Not nec. so. The Mitanni kingdom (present day Kurdistan, Armenia-----) was known for its horse training methods. Mitanni kings drove chariots pulled by horses and they were fierce fighters. Their origins were in the Indo-European stock. Egyptians used horses when they were Pagans. Persia and Central Asia used horses long before monomaniacs went there and it is likely that Arabs took their knowledge of horse breeding to their home land.....

....It has never been established that the Arabian horse is originally from Arabia. It may well be from Mitanni or other central Asian countries......

.....So, just as pre-iSlamic Persian architecture is erroneously called iSlamic architecture and Indian numerals are called Arab numerals, the horse became a monomaniac. Incidentally, PBUH used horses (not camels) when he chopped off Pagans......
