Russian Nobles fighting on foot, armed with a sword and shield.
When a Boyar lost his horse on campaign, or where the terrain did not allow the use of cavalry, Boyars would fight on foot as infantry. Armed with a sword and shield and protected by thick mail armour, Boyars are just as proficient fighting on foot as they are from a horse.
