I mean, seriously. Imagine 50 ppl charging down to the enemy on their horses to collectively jump of from them just to start the fight. Destroys the image of the horselords a bit.
But then again, I only play it for a short time and never actually tried to fight from the back of my horse; so please correct me if it is indeed possible (@work now, so cannot try it myself).
