Just looking for advice on what horse to use. From what I see, most cavalry players seem to stick with the desert horse; choosing to not buy armoured horses when they could probably afford it (from heavy armour on player). Is there a specific reason such as the armoured horses being too slow and clumsy? Since most people with heavy horses use swords, is it a momentum problem? Also, are there balancing changes in this mod that affects this?

As most people use fast lightly armoured horses you're pretty much screwed if you have a slower more armoured horse.

Heavy horses survive longer. They are also useful at bumping and knocking people down by riding over them - great support horse. Best light horses are desert horse and hunter. Desert horse has the highest maneuver and hunter is really tough (although stats on the site don't really show that). Most people use heavy horses against infantry, while light horses are good against both inf and cavalry. I advise you to start with a hunter

heavy horse is shit

brown sarranid horse i don't recall the name is by far the best, hunter is also viable if you want something with more HP

since most of the time you die/get dismounted by polearms heavy horses are not gonna help since a good awlpike build 1 hits charger aswell once you got stopped

light horses are obviously faster, have more maneuver and do increase your dps

Do not buy Desert or Sarranid horse, you will just prove yourself a faggot of immense proportions if you do. Get yourself a Hunter at least.
A treatise on fighting other cav:

 

Thou shall not ride upon a sm0ll gracile agicunt infidel horse.

Thou shall not avoid direct confrontations and stab thine opponent's steed from distance.
If thine enemy coucheth his lance at you from afar, thou shall accept the joust and ride honorably to meet thine victory or doom.
No deed bears more honor than outmaneuvering a bugger riding upon sm0ll gracile agicunt infidel horse and slaying both his daemonic steed and himself with but a blow of thine sword.

A knightly build which beareth twenty-four marks in might and twelve marks in swiftness is favorable in eyes of Lord.

Get a sumpter and MWPlate and 30/6 build.

 

Just make sure people hit you and not the horse, since you have more HP and armour.
