the large number of horse among the Cimbri also indicate some
commercial connection with the Getae? The Belgae in northeast France,
who moved from north central Germany, where also know for having
large numbers of large breed horses. In fact it appears to be their
migration into France that puts an end to the use of chariots ( these
beign pulled by horses of breeds too small to ride). I
remember reading somewhere that between the 5th and 1st
century there is evidence of steppe types or breeds of horses begin
replacing the much small Celt types throughout east and central

this be one aspect of the Kimmer, Scyth, Getae, Cimbri
connection? Horses for Amber?

Yes, here
