Regarding the claims that the Egyptians did not ride horses before the 8th
century BCE- that is an old notion which has been "disproven". A wooden
model exists of an Egyptian sitting on a horse found in a tomb and another
tomb had a bas-relief showing an Egyptian riding a horse (If I recall
rightly they were both of the New Kingdom period, ca. 1530-1200 BCE).
