Cavalry militia are poorly trained and equipped, yet are capable of keeping the enemy at a distance.
In the wide spaces of eastern Europe, towns needed to be able to defend themselves against raids by Turkish or Tartar horsemen. These militia are able to drive off nomadic horsemen, and deal with other light soldiers, but being poorly trained and equipped, they should not be relied on against quality soldiers.
