Moving around on horses, even doing so under fire isn't exactly a cavalry charge. Let's not get carried away. :)

No, you had to see these guys on BBC video!
They were in full "into the valley of death rode the 600" mode. Most has AKs or M16. Heads were not up but down along the horses neck, full gallop, shooting as they went, overrunning Taliban hidey-holes!
Real John Wayne Sierra.
Actually, there was another article posted today which contains the information that they ARE participating in cavalry charges. The source is Paul Wolfowitz. It isn't in this article, but it was in the other one posted today.
Very cool. High tech targetting and cavalry charges. I am impressed. VERY impressed!
