    Maybe I'm easily baffled, but I am baffled by the reluctance to admit that early steppe people were riding horses, given all the evidence and just the simple, common sense realization that climbing onto the back of a horse is a natural thing to do, more natural than constructing carts, wagons, and chariots.

    We know there was osteological evidence of horseback riding among Kurgan Bell Beaker people by the second half of the third millennium BC. I'm guessing one would have to spend a lot of time on the back of a horse for it to show up in his bones, and I doubt horseback riding was invented by Beaker people.

    This is an interesting bit of video, if too short.

    Lest anyone think a saddle and stirrups are absolutely necessary, there's the video below (remember that this represents this gentleman's first foray into shooting a bow from horseback).



    Here's another one. The young woman spends a few minutes getting her horse used to the idea, so you can skip ahead to about 5:40 in the video. She's not using a longbow, but she's not using a saddle, stirrups or even a bridle either.
