Isn't it called self-deception? Confused

The horseback riding again... more info on http://www.nilemuse.com/muse/royalrider.html. The leopard (?) underneath the horse reminded me of a hittian image of a hunting scene, more than it resembled an actual "Egyptian scene".

Hello!

Quote:
The first evidence of horses in Egypt dates from the 13th dynasty. But they were introduced on a significant scale only from the Second Intermediate Period onwards. The first pictures of horses were made during the 18th dynasty.
Horses were luxury animals, and only the very wealthy could afford to keep them and treat them according to their worth. They were never used for ploughing and only rarely ridden at the beginning. For war and hunt alike they were harnessed to chariots.
Tutankhamen seems to have enjoyed not only driving his chariot, but also mounting on horseback. This can be inferred from a riding crop found in his tomb bearing the inscription that he came on his horse like the shining Re. According to a few rare depictions, such as a relief in Horemheb's tomb, horses were ridden bareback and without stirrups.

Surce

in Horemheb's tomb:



... a wooden statuette (18th dynasty, Metropolitan Museum, New York)



... and here a messenger on horseback at Luxor Temple

These depictions all don't really look like portraying foreigners, no?
Maybe it was merely a habit (horseback riding then) for messengers?

There doesn't seem to be a saddle on the horse used by the messenger.
But somehow he looks like he's riding side-saddle

You're meaning "Amazonic"?
I find it a bit weird they're never shown with any "marks".
Like to say: King's Messenger coming through (no flag, no bracelet, no helm)...
Or if they were military men some distinction would also be appropriate.
But maybe riding horseback was enough of a "mark"?

The fact that he is riding side saddle could mean something. Maybe that was the gait of the messenger.

As to the deer hieroglyph, looks like it could be a deer or a gazelle, as both of these are depicted in the hieroglyph writing.
