Sabre and lance drills

Salve,
we have a brand new month ahead of us - a promise of the Spring perhaps as well.
Honouring this new month, I am starting with this 'plate' that I compiled some illustrations from the Polish cavalry manuals (via great Polish horse archery website zurawiejki.pl) regarding lance and sabre training, in the fashion of the uhlans of the prior epochs

....like this lancers of the 1st Polish Light Cavalry Regiment of the Imperial Guard (image from the manual written by general Wincenty KrasiƄski, commander of the regiment )

enjoy
