Same source - back in the Heimat, with a Knoetel illustration.

"When the trumpets sound, the hussars go forth!"
Jumping an obstacle, next to another horse and rider, holding on with one hand, looking backward with one arm raised, yelling something, and holding a lance across the pommel (wait, does that make three hands?). How does he do it? I think he just jabbed his buddy in the gut with his lance butt.


The new field uniforms.

Ah never under estimate the riding, shouting and jabbing skills of the Husaren-Regiment "von Zieten" (Brandenburgisches) No. 3 (and the British thought they had long winded regimental titles). Could I recommend D.H. Hagger's book "Hussars and Mounted Rifles", Almark Publishing 1974, as an excellent English language book of all uniform aspects of the Kaiser's hussars for 1900-14. Profusely illustrated as they say. There were other books in the same series covering dragoons, cuirassiers, jagers etc.
