As per the Osprey item
It was a hastily formed skirmish line and once foot had arrived the cavalry reverted to type. Some  might also want to consider the bridge blowing exploits of the Prussian cavalry who mounted up engineers for one particular operation. There are always exceptions and I know wargamers love exceptions but if you are fighting a full blooded FPW battle cavalry was used as cavalry. Thats what gives that period its particular flavour.
 I suppose it's each to his own but I would not make a business plan based on exceptions and rare events particularly as many of the other Pendraken ranges are still incomplete of some of the basics.
