These highly detailed bookends represent a pair of traditional Assyrian cavalry horses. <br> <br>The Middle Assyrian Period is marked by the long wars fought during this period that helped build Assyria into a warrior society. The King depended both on the citizen class and priests in his capital, and the landed nobility who supplied the horses needed by Assyria's military. <br> <br>It was only in the 9th century BC that cavalry horses, as depicted here, were introduced. These were ridden by Assyrians from the forward seat. Thus a new form of warfare, the cavalry charge, was introduced.
