Formed originally back in 1743, the Chasseurs a Cheval (mounted hunters) were hard riding, green clad light cavalry whose main role was patrolling and raiding for the French armies. A good Chasseur was at home on his light horse, skirmishing with the enemy cavalry or scouting enemy movements and thus providing valuable intelligence for their commanders.
At the height of the French Army under Bonaparte's reign there were 31 regiments of Chasseurs a Cheval although only 15 regiments were available for the titanic Hundred Days campaign that culminated at the Battle of Waterloo. Our superbly detailed Chasseurs a Cheval are provided with covered and uncovered shakos as well as the colpacks favoured by the elite companies. Although requested not to wear the sabretache beyond 1808 many Chasseurs would keep this item well beyond this decree and thus we've included it on our models. For those of you wishing to follow regulations over reality simply snip the sabretache off.
