When the horse and man are as one, all else follows.

An army of peasants will fight as peasants. An army of foot soldiers will be ponderous. An army with horses will be fleet and deadly! Stables allow the training of light cavalry, who can quickly move across a battlefield to exploit a weakness or hold a line. Mythology has it that the monkey protects horses and stables. This belief has its roots in the Chinese story "Journey to the West" about a monk and his companions, a monkey, a pig and a water spirit travelling to India. The monkey is making the trip as penance for disobedience to the Jade Emperor, who appointed him protector of horses to calm his desire for power. The monkey image is often found on stables, and a particular fine "hear no evil, see no evil, speak no evil" set of images can be seen at the Toshuga Shrine, built to honour Tokugawa Ieyasu.
