Wealthier samurai could afford horses and they rode them into battle. However, the feudal Japanese horse was short and stumpy and was not suited to the cavalry charges seen in Europe in the same period. Mounted samurai acted more like dragoons, riding then dismounting to fight. Later, foreign horses were bred with Japanese horses to create more suitable cavalry.
