    was a spectacularly effective P.R. effort.

    It made Abdul Rashid Dostum, and our association with him, seem exciting and likable. Which isn't at all an easy task.

      the special forces horses still exist and are used for training and for pr purposes.  The special forces guys learn to ride, but also some basic care/veterinary help of the animals, so if in an agrarian area, they can help care for animals, give out some supplies and make friends with the locals.
