It is thought the term 'Hobilars' comes from the Norman name 'hobby' for the small horses that Gaelic troops rode in Scotland and Ireland. In medieval warfare Hobilars are the lighter cavalry who support the knights. They shouldn't be relied on too far in battle, but can be valuable for chasing down fleeing enemy.
