- uhlan regiments
- horse rifle regiments
- chasseur regiments
The only difference between them was their name - organization was the same.
Name was determined by regimental historical tradition.

In light of the wordwide access to the internet, I recommend that when referring to units by designation, a short note should be included to explain what kind of unit is meant. Either as a short phrase, or as a footnote.
"… the 1st Mounted Rifle Regiment (a battalion-sized horse cavalry unit) …"
"… the 245th Royal Horse Artillery Regiment (a battalion-sized, self-propelled artillery unit) …"
And your thoughts?
Units trained to fight while horse-mounted should be identified as "horse cavalry".
