In the wilder, less tamed regions of Wesnoth, the horse clans provide a steady supply of mounts, so even common farmers can usually afford a horse. Once a man has a horse, it becomes easier to travel long distances and to keep control of animal herds; however, such Ranchers tend to equip themselves with only the simplest of spears, perhaps dreaming of being numbered among Wesnoth's horsemen. Few achieve this dream; charging any real soldier on the back of a horse whilst wearing little to no armour is tantamount to suicide.

Special Notes: Using a charging attack increases both damage dealt and received by 50% during the offense; this does not affect retaliation during the defensive.

Special Notes: This unit has a defense cap on certain terrain types — it cannot achieve a higher defense rating on mixed terrains with such terrain types.
