Here is a Praetorian cavalry set to match the infantry set already released (EXP60RMN01-P). Each Praetorian Cohort was to consist of 6 centuriae (each 80 men) of infantry and 3 turmae (each 30 men) of cavalry. These cavalrymen were recruited from the best of the Auxilia and were granted citizenship upon joining the Guard. They were equipped the same way as the auxiliary cavalry. The shield emblem is based on a monument associated with the Praetorians. The Praetorian Guards were heavily involved in the civil wars of the four emperors (A.D. 69).

The above photo shows the two most common types of cavalry helmets of the early Imperial period.
Although it will take you about 3 minutes per figure to assemble these warriors, the resulting model will blow you away with its detail, dimensionality and fluidity of motion. (Use "Gorilla" Super Glue.)
