In the Assyrian chariotry...

“It is remarkable that, after the fall of Samaria, the Assyrians redeployed a large Israelite chariot force to fight as a unit of the royal army on its northern borders. It is also significant that the king of Assyria selected an Israelite equestrian to train the crown princes and designated many Samaritan charioteers as officers in the Assyrian army. This speaks volumes about the level of equestrian expertise in Israel.”—The Horsemen of Israel, page 143
