Rawkins has this to say on the horse artillery headgear:

"The original headgear issued to the volunteer horse battery of Count Potocki was a lancer style czapka of black with white piping at the edges and a white band around the centre of the hat. The plate was similar to that used by the foot artillery, a white metal Polish eagle above a brass plate embossed with crossed cannons and grenades. Cords and flounders were scarlet and a scarlet ball pompon was worn above the white  cockade on the left side of the hat. The peak was black leather trimmed with brass and chin-scales were brass.

The czapka was replaced in 1810 with a light cavalry style black-brown fur colpack as worn by the Mounted Chasseurs, however, the first company would appear to have continued to wear the czapka until at least the
beginning of 1812. The colpack flamme was dark green with scarlet piping and tassel and was usually worn tucked inside the top of the hat and fastened with a large cloth cover button. The cords and flounders were scarlet and a scarlet pompom or pompon and plume were worn at the front of the bonnet.
