The Forces of the Großherzogtum von Zeichen-Nietschbaden: Cavalry
The Zeichener horse include one regiment of Grenadiere-zu-Pferde, three regiments of dragoons, one of cuirassiers and one of hussars. Dragoons, like the foot, wear dark blue coats.
The Grenadiere-zu-Pferde von Großherzogin Maria, based at Nietschbaden, are commanded by Friedrich Albrecht von Zeichen-Nietschbaden. Mid-blue coats with dark blue facings (I am not quite committed to the mitre-caps on these guys).
The Dessergau Dragoner-Regiment are based at Desse under the command of Georg Heinrich, Graf von Desse-Harmstreicht. Crimson facings.
The Sauberg Dragoner-Regiment, based at Hochwald, are commanded by Franz August, Graf von Hochwald. Green facings.
