Dragoons were originally mounted infantry who would dismount to fire their weapons. Light dragoons were small men on small horses who were more active and manoeuvrable on the battlefield than heavier cavalry. Hussars were essentially similar to light dragoons but copied from fashionable Hungarian cavalry at the start of the nineteenth century.
