Mercenary Avar Horse Archers

Horsemanship, matched by skill with the bow, is devastating on the field.
The skill required to fire a bow from a moving horse is phenomenal. Cavalry archers had to keep control of their mounts with their knees whilst using both arms to fire their bows, which took a great deal of practice and physical strength. Often lightly armoured, horse archers were the ideal skirmish troops as they could quickly reach key areas of the battlefield to harass the enemy, but without getting so close they were forced into melee. People of nomadic origin, such as the Sarmatians, Huns and Avars, were renowned as skilled riders and used horse archers to great effect. The combination of skill and the deadly composite bow, which could puncture straight through armour, made their horsemen the dread of all those they encountered.
