The cavalry (from the French cavalerie) is the second oldest of the Combat Arms, and as soldiers or warriors who fought mounted on horseback in combat, it represents the mobility and offensive power of the armed forces. A soldier in the cavalry is known as a cavalryman. The designation was not usually extended to any military force that used other animals, such as camels or mules.
