If riding a horse into battle, our hero will always be knocked off and forced to dispatch enemies with his sword. Probably this is meant to artificially add tension to the scene; or maybe because killing people who can't reach you with their flimsy weapons doesn't seem exactly heroic.

Examples: Gladiator, Alexander, Spartacus...
