Very nice work. They look so animated, I could see them "Galloping at Everything". Great photography

1st Royal Dragoons I assume?

Odd that the makers (not HAT I gather?) gave the horses the cross piece on the face, a Light Cavalry feature, but they did do the "docked" tails, which I know is not the correct term, but can I remember?

Great photography! You must have a pretty nice setup to take pictures like that.

Liam. I don't think the horses have the cross piece moulded, I think Mateus has added that feature

Marc is right. I thought that was a feature of all British cavalry, and that was missing on these models, so I painted it up.

And now deadhead tells me it was only used in light cavalry?? Oh, well… :-P

I certainly would not be too worried. The cross piece was a feature of French Light cavalry also, but not heavies. No idea why!

I guess just the fashion and acknowledging that the Hungarian Bridle is right for Hussars, at the very least
