I've made this thread more like an experiment, to see how many of you share my two hobbies (warfare and horses) combined in one
Now I'm sure there are some cavalrymen and amazons among you, so it would be nice if we can all gather in a thread and talk a bit about it.
This thread is about everything and nothing in particular. Feel free to share anything about riding, as a wargame activity or as self defense (I am aware another thread on self defense exists, though it doesn't involves maces, lances and swords ).
Anything from stories, experiences, if you like it, why so, if you don't, why so, etc.
May your charges be like fast as the wind and strong as a avalanche!
Edit: Forgot to say.... what's your favorite time when horses were used as war instruments?
For me it's the 18th century (I love the uniforms) and medieval era (heavy mounted lancers anyone?)
