All cavalry units use warhorses, strong steeds specially bred to carry armour and heavily armored men for several hours at a stretch. Such horses are worth perhaps twenty ordinary horses. (Light cavalry are bred, meanwhile, for speed.) The horsemen of Guelders trained their horses to fight as well, kicking and biting any foes who dare to approach them; foot soldiers might even be trampled down. As a result, Ruiters and Wapentuers are able to damage any foes they aren't directly attacking but who are close to them, a phenomenon known as "trample damage".
