How do you defeat horse archers?

Use Caltrops, or Greyhound dogs, put Trap everywhere like ditches, Stakes in the ground with manure on them to cause biowarfare. Send scouts and Poison known grass areas to kill their horses cattle before they. Also the main weapon against them would be Slings, since they are easy to make and require only stones
>>
>>10221090
In battle usually traps or just ignoring them. They were largely skirmishers and were ineffective against disciplined heavy infantry since casualties cause are downright minimal and they wont move out and break formation which is what they are mostly used to achieve. Although the Romans never really developed a way to counter them exactly their advice was just to ignore them and not chase them.

>>10221090
A grid network of fortifications and periodically punching into the steppe with armies to uproot/unsettle growing tribes, playing politics to keep them infighting and ensuring nobody gets too strong. That's how Persia and China dealt with steppe nomads on their boundaries for centuries

I know that killing a rival's horse was one of the most heavily punished actions in medieval tourneys. i don't think you'd just eat a horse like that. having a horse was like having a car back then... something valuable. you'd be better off by just stealing it or selling it.

horse meat is delicious though, that much is true.
>>
>>10221253
i meant more in say the aftermath of a battle, if there's a ton of horse corpses and you need rations it seems a shame to leave it to the carrion birds, now sure how they saw it culturally, i know we now have horse butchers which i didnt think were a thing
>>10221256

>>10221090
Infantry archers, crossbows, heavy cavalry, fortifications, your own, better armed horse archers, slingers.

Whatever you want, really.
>>
>>10221253
Killing the horse was penalized because tournaments were sport. In actual combat they'd go for your horse if they couldn't kill you. Attacking the man first in battle is a matter of practicality, killing the horse isn't worth much if the guy puts his lance into your visor a tenth of a second later.
>>
The only way to put a permanent end to them is with guns. Guns are what finally allowed the Russians to end millennia of horse archer invasions from the steppe.
>>
>>10221090

Before the early modern period the tactics consciously used to combat horse archers of the steppe by China and the west were fairly similar.

Tight formation of soldiers, flanked and supported by bowmen, or crossbow men. With use of your own cavalry, further flanking this formation.

With horse archers.
>>
>>10221945
What made Steppe people so formidable was that most people did have horses and bows. It was usually an individual work for their own bow but nearly all of them had one and could use it.

Heavy infantry were usually not phased by them because they were very rarely massed in huge numbers. Shields and armour could stop arrows effectively but were a nuisance, the usual plan was that the infantry would try to attack them by breaking line and the heavy cavalry could attack the unorganized infantry. The effective killing distance of a recurve bow was something about 50 metres if I remember and that's assuming they had no defences like a shield or mail. That kind of distance made them at threat of being attacked back by the enemy so they kept a further distance to harass them.

Discipline, discipline and the right equipment. Here's what you do wether your in the open or along the mountains. You form big square formations with your infantry. In the middle of those big squares are archers. Those formation move together everywhere and do not break and chase after horse archers. You simply shoot then as they get close and brace for the lancers that are usually accompanying the horse archers. That's it. When done right it destroys cavalry based armies.

But the soldiers back then, if that's what you want to call them lacked the discipline. Only the Romans could pull this off. The English under Richard the lion heart did it to the Saracens commanded by salahadin himself. The Hungarian shielded their archers behind walls of spear men and killed lots of mongols. But they did not form squares so the only thing that stopped them from getting flanked was they were across a bridge.

The germans best horse archers by using k lights but only worked because they were fighting in the constructed geography of central Europe. Had they tried it on the open plains of Hungary or the steppes they would have been wiped out.

Simplest method

heavy infantry uses large, strong-enough shields and formations that allow shield protection in direction of all horse archers

a couple per cent of the force are slingers or archers with arrow-stopping body armour (iron scale scale armour suffices) that force the horse archers to stay at a less-dangerous distance

other footmen stay behind and have at least a decent helmet (flight archery arrows for long range fall down near-vertically)

the own cavalry is either horse archers or seeks to raid the enemy camp at night

the path ahead of a horse-archer-rich enemy army main body has to be emptied of what it needs to feed its horses (horse archers usually had multiple light horses per man)

poison/salten wells

try to lure the enemy army into unfavourable terrain

attack the bonds of service of the enemy army (horse archer armies of the steppes and Persia were multi-tribe armies) through bribery, disinformation and by keeping them from gaining good booty

>>
>>10221090
I have no idea if this was done historically but I remember something similar if it is about simply annulling the horse archers advantage,
Just dig a shit ton of ditches and trenches. They wont be so stupid as to ride their horse into a ditch/trench and
the trench would provide protection against most arrow fire. You can simply return fire with crossbows, bows
ballistas or other projectile weapons.
Advancing enemy infantry can easily be confronted by stepping out of the trench and forcing the infantry to step down into the trench and fight you from
a worse position. Besides the added bonus of just hurling a shit ton of missiles on their heads.

>>10221090
Assuming that you have a Western European-style army from the 13th century, bowmen and crossbows protected by a wall of disciplined spear infantry. Europeans did adopt this strategy when fighting the Saracens who also used a lot of horse archers. The Europeans would also protect their heavy cavalry in the center of the "box" and would charge in concentrated areas and would (ideally) return to their "box" for the next sortie.

Well, at the battle of Kulikovo the Russian infantry held out with bows and crossbows, then as the Mongols exhausted their horses maneuvering around them the Russian cavalry charged with fresh horses from a concealed position. The rest of the Mongol army was also exhausted having spent hours moving back and forth trying to break the Russian infantry and so near the end of the day the infantry too could advance and put pressure on them.

Horses can only gallop for around 2 miles before exhaustion. On the pony express they would trot and canter for about 15 miles and this is with light loads on well maintained roads. By contrast unladen humans can run a marathon of 20 miles, albeit more slowly. Heat exhaustion is also a problem for horses though not as much as sweaty hairless humans.

Kulikovo was largely fruitless however as the Golden Horde were in the midst of a civil war, once the civil war ended the new Khan overwhelmed the Russian princes and razed Moscow to the ground. It wouldn't be until gunpowder that Russian infantry could reliably resist horse archers. Another factor was the little ice age which saw populations in the steppe decline.

Nowadays you can just hop in a plane or helicopter and blast them with air-to-surface missiles.

Going a little further back, gunpowder era weapons aren't bad against them either. A combination of cannons and heavy shock cavalry (as well as some horse archers of their own) was how the Mughals and Ottomans typically dealt with horse-archer nomads.

Europeans (especially Russians) tended to prefer archer formations, heavy shock cavalry, and pikes (which eventually evolved into the "pike and shot" style of warfare) which worked nice for when some nomads tried to invade but didn't do as well when the horse-archers were supported by cannons.

It was noted in the Diadochi wars, the Pyrrhic war, and iirc also the Punic war that when horses came into contact with elephants they would freak the fuck out and stop responding to their riders. Granted this would make elephants a better foil to cavalry charges than horse archers, but maybe the effects would have a long enough range to freak out the enemy horses. The elephants would need to be heavily armored and ridden/accompanied by archers. Maybe some lancers flanking the elephants that could charge the spooked horses?

The elephants could work as long as the horse archers couldn't find a way to scare the elephants thus redeeming them useless. Afaik, the Romans did by putting pigs on fire.

Hungarians did that in the battle of Mohi.
They were really effective with their crossbows, but didn't realize the mongol commander used his horsenigger archers as distraction and then outflanked the hungarian position with the other units of his army.
Even the steppenigger supreme, Ghengis khan, did have several different units, not just horse archers.

Static defenses don't win battles, their only design is to slow the advance of the enemy before you can route them through a counter attack or they run out of supplies and bail. The Russians tried to set up barricades using wagons and other shit they had on hand but it never worked.
