|Saber Fighting on the back of a horse does require some talent but, I would have to agree with Johan Hacking at your opponent comes pretty easy as long as you can handle your mount , leg control is the key (thats using your legs to guide the horse for those of you that don't ride)that leaves you a free hand for a pistol and saber unless you are the duke and can use your teeth. I would have to disagree with the fact that pistols were not very effective, have read several accounts of Bushwackers being feared for their ability to shoot with em. And as we say in the cav. "who would bring a knife to a gun fight anyway"
