These mounted warriors fight on foot, and possess a bravery that few can lay claim to and even fewer display.

Cheyenne Dog Soldiers are master horsemen and use their skills to great effect. They prefer to use their horses for swift transport rather than as war horses, dismounting to fight hand-to-hand. Dog Soldiers uphold an oath of unflinching bravery, and will stand fast even when the battle appears lost and all others have fled. They are ideal for a fast paced attack against a strategic enemy position where the enemy must retake the ground, and as a last line of defence when all hope is lost.

The Spanish conquistadores re-introduced the horse to the Americas (quite by accident), and the animals were soon adopted for war by the natives. They became integral in the day-to-day tasks of hunting and travelling across the plains, jobs which had previously been performed by dogs. Horses were so highly prized they even became trophies: warriors often had one horse that they prized above all others and used only for bison hunts. These horses were always tethered directly outside a warrior’s tipi, and were key targets for enemy raiding parties.
