Mercenary Noble Horse

Every nobleman has his price.

The Celts held horses in high regard; they were prestige possessions, and revered for their strength and vitality. As a result Celtic cavalry, like that of many armies, was the preserve of the wealthy nobility. Developments in saddle technology gave horsemen a firm seat without the need for stirrups: four pommels held the rider's thighs and this, in turn, allowed greater movement when using a sword or spear. With this improvement, cavalry tactics emerged and two-man chariots declined; they were no longer the only fast-moving strike force. Some cavalrymen carried long swords and, in the same fashion as traditional chariot riders, were given to dismounting and fighting on foot. Celtic horsemen became a much sought-after mercenary force and, over the centuries, served in the Carthaginian, Egyptian and Roman armies.
