Influenced by both Iberian and Moorish light cavalry traditions, Jinetes shun heavy armour and lances in favour of light armour and javelins. These well trained horsemen are fast and manoeuvrable, capable of employing a shooting circle tactic enabling riders to create a continuous cycle of firing. Jinetes hurl their javelins before closing in and fighting with their cavalry swords.
