I'm against this. As someone else pointed out, horses are already expensive
enough to produce in noble time. And if fighting beasts required maintanence,
it would make building a castle pretty much a requirement, since only land
taxes would be able to support an army. Right now, building an army out of
beasts allows one to choose a low-cost alternative to warfare.
