The Lilmothian Cavalry were lightly armored and carried spears and shields. They were best used as scouts and in pursuit of fleeing enemies, and rode sturdy, sure-footed ponies with a good turn of speed. Like many Lilmothian Horde units, however, they often lacked battle discipline and were over keen to enter battle against worthy opponents. Honor and standing came from fighting, and sometimes the urge for glory overwhelmed their good sense. These units were all good fighters, but found organized, formal warfare as going against their grain. They were unlikely to be effective against steady infantry unless attacking from an unexpected direction.
