At their own initiative value (unless charging).

Exactly as Arnizipal says - they attack in initiative order as everyone else (except when charging). Check out the I value of the horse on the stat line.

Yes, when charging they strike simultaneously.

Of course, there are things that can strike first even against charging cavalry - such as pikes and characters with certain magic items.

Hi

Yes, when charging they strike simultaneously.

Not exactly: The part with the higher Ini attacks first, Rider OR horse.
Not that it matters much I daresay...

Cherish your horses, they often do better than the riders :p

Been there and had that happen! For just about a year, whatever army I pushed, my warhorses would hit and convert in HtH. My opponents might/usually make the save rolls :( Norses doing better than charging knights was at least worth a short chuckle.

Sadly the horses hitting better than average, faded away just about Janurary 05. Fond memories, where's Trigger when you need him??
