Bow Cavalry

Skilled samurai trained to shoot while mounted on a horse.

Only the very skillfull can shoot whilst moving at speed. These archers are usefull for killing off some of the enemy numbers, but should not be risked if countered by more stable archers from the ground. These horsemen can handle themselves in melee, but die easily at the end of spears and against heavy cavalry.
