      Martin,

      I didn't agree with "Slovak Cavalry", I understood it to mean mean, Slovaks riding in the Cavalry, as in the song Slovak som a Slovak budem.

      That song so impressed me as a 6 year old, I used to dream of me riding a big white horse, wearing a cape and brandishing a shiny sword.



      And this made me feel brave:

       



      neumriem na slame,



      umriem ja na koni



      a ked z kona spadnem,



      sablenka zavoni



      Z Bohom,



      Vilko

      There are no folk songs about "the Slovak cavalry." All the Slovak folk songs concerning the army and horses refer to the Habsburg army, the army of the Austrian monarchy.
