Horses

Imam Malik bin Anas narrated from Nafi’ from Abdullah bin Umar that the Messenger of God (peace and blessings be upon him and his family) said:

“Good is tied to the forelocks of horses until the Day of Rising.”

This hadith, with what imam al-Bukhari calls the “Golden Chain of Narration,” is narrated by Imam Malik b. Anas in his Muwatta, and al-Bukhari (through a different chain) in his Sahih.

    Salam Alaykum,
    Is this a reference to the use of horses in Jihad, or is it more general than that? I ask because the wording is general, but I seem to recall hearing that it is about Jihad.
